What to Look For

Ideally, you will be able to source straight species of native plants grown from seeds that were collected not too far from home (“local ecotype”). These plants should be perfectly suited to where you are planting them. However, that is not always possible. Avoid ‘cultivars’ where possible. Cultivars are not genetically diverse plants and are problematic for several reasons. Read more about that here.

That being said… mail-order native plants from an area with similar seasons are usually a better choice than non-native plants grown near your home.
