Let’s be honest. New Englanders aren’t known for being the sexiest of people. We’re not flashy and we don’t like attention. But not these New England Natives! These guys want to get noticed, party with some pollinators, and show off their assets! Below are some fabulous New England Natives that will wow you, and visit our New England Natives section in the nursery. Plant signed marked with this NE symbol means they are native.
Why use natives? Using native plants of New England in your Seacoast garden is beneficial for so many reasons. Namely, they provide vital habitat for regional wildlife and ecosystems, and are evolved to survive in our region’s specific climate with far fewer maintenance needs, such as watering and insect control. And in addition to that, they’re beautiful. We encourage you to incorporate as many of them as possible in your garden. Scroll over the images below to see the plant names.
