Why Choose Bird-Friendly Native Plants For Your Garden?

Native plants are perfectly suited to their environment and handle anything your region, climate and weather can throw at them!

Don’t forget the many benefits for people too!

Audubon® For the Insects

By purchasing native flora, you attract beneficial insects and pollinators that become food for your native and migrating birds - and their chicks! Exotic and non-native plants just don’t attract the insects that birds recognize as food.

Native plants are also Host Plants for endangered or at-risk butterflies and pollinators! The larvae of these insects are supported by endemic plants and become beautiful butterflies and cool moths. These plants also attract beneficial insects and help to keep your local ecosystem in check.

You are also supporting native and wild bees! These in turn pollinate your vegetable gardens and orchards better!

For the Birds!


Bird-friendly natives are living recharging stations for birds passing through your area in spring and fall! They’re also vital resources for birds raising chicks. They provide safe shelter, nesting and roosting for birds all year long, becoming a sanctuary for overwintering birds and wildlife during harsh temperatures, snows and storms!

Non-native plants don’t produce the seeds and fruit that local birds recognize as food! Creating a food desert for wildlife! Their flowers are vital nectar resources for Hummingbirds, native bees and other pollinators! Many birds eat the catkins and buds, while others use the seed fluff to line their nests!

Do it For You!

We admit it, that new colored flower, different style shrub, or fancy tree will turn our heads too! But at what cost? They may look new and exciting, but you need to remember that the vast majority of hardy native plants are such that you’ve most likely not seen some of these hidden gems from the wilderness! They may look a bit more wild or leggy, but that is part of their charm!

It’s nothing a bit of pruning won’t fix.


Native plants are lower maintenance and easier to care for than exotic species which often can take so much more work, use more water, require pesticides, and need a lot of fussing over!

Natives are adapted to your region, and your local weather extremes once they are established. They’re adapted to your weather and climate, hardy to temperature changes and seasonal fluctuations. They just roll along with any changes because it’s in their genes!

Plus many of these plants produce fruit or nuts that we eat too! They’re beautiful and just as ornamental and beneficial to your garden and landscape as the imported plants.

  • Helps American Bird Species Threatened by Climate Change
