Native Plant Communities

Native plant communities are unique collections of plants, birds, insects, wildlife, water, soils, topography and climate, all adapted to work together. They define a natural area visually and are a powerful example of real sustainability — no irrigation, fertilizers or pesticides need apply. Explore your local native plant communities and inspire your own sustainable landscape design. Read more about plant communities
