Abstract:

NATIVE PLANTS
There is a misconception that native plants, in general, are not that ornamental based on what's observed in the wild. There is some truth to this but through cultivation, many can become excellent landscape plants. In fact the nursery industry embraces many native plants that under standard nursery practices become excellent ornamentals. Good examples include many mainstream landscape plants. Trees such as Acer saccharum, Amelanchier laevis, Asimina triloba, Cercis canadensis, Cornus florida, Fagus grandifolia, Nyssa sylvatica as well as many species of Quercus. Shrubs including Aronia, Clethra alnifolia, Cornus sericea, Diervilla lonicera and Ilex verticillata are widely available.
