Frequently Asked Questions

What are native plants and why are they important?

Native plants are indigenous to a certain geographic region and are adapted to local climate and soil conditions where they naturally occur. Native plant diversity is essential for ecosystems to properly adapt to urban stresses like climate change, habitat fragmentation, and pollution. For more information, check out the U.S. Forest Service’s page on Native Gardening.

Check out some favorites from our staff:

River Oats

Scientific Name: Chasmanthium latifolium

One of the more shade-tolerant grasses, this plant adds distinctive year-round texture to any native plant garden and even┬ádried flower arrangements. Seed heads emerge green and turn purplish-bronze by late summer. This self seeding grass can spread to make a nice swath of flattened oats that will flutter in the slightest breeze. Perfect for your native plant garden – adding texture all year round.

Bee Balm

Scientific Name: Monarda fistulosa

This easy-to-grow butterfly magnet provides color and contrast for the herb garden, wild garden, native plant garden, meadow or naturalized area. The fragrant bunches of purple flowers emerge in late summer – flower production is best in full sun in consistently moist soil, but it will tolerate some shade. Also called wild bergamot, the leaves and flowers can be used in herbal teas, salads, and as garnishes.

Coral honeysuckle

Scientific Name: Lonicera sempervirens

This native, vining honeysuckle will make an outstanding addition to your garden on trellises and arbors. Large, non-fragrant, tubular flowers are scarlet to orangish red on the outside and yellowish inside, appearing in late spring at the ends of stems.The flowers are attractive to hummingbirds, butterflies and bees, and the berries that emerge later are favored by songbirds.

Purple Muhly grass

Scientific Name: Muhlenbergia capillaris

A clump-forming, warm season, perennial grass that is noted for its spectacular clouds of purple to pink fall flowers. It shines in mass plantings or along borders and is heavily featured along the Atlanta Beltline. This plant requires almost no perpetual maintenance once established and it is typically free of pests and disease.
