Shady landscapes are easy to care for since they require minimal weeding and watering. In addition, they support a host of interesting woodland birds, pollinating insects and small animals and are also lovely places to be on hot days.
Native plants are well adapted to local conditions.
They have value to wildlife and many were once used as medicines or dyes. There are woody and herbaceous species with delicate blossoms, an array of fruits and seeds, a variety of leaf shapes and colors, and interesting bark or branching patterns.
