Native plants are more than pretty flowers. The nutritious pollen and nectar of native wildflowers attract butterflies and pollinators. The leafy green growth of native plants is a snack for insect herbivores. Songbirds flutter about native plants as they feed on insects and seeds. Native plants reconnect your yard to the ecosystem as evidenced by the flurry of activity surrounding them.

Whether adding a new wildflower to your pollinator garden or trying to incorporate native plants into your yard for the first time, HeartLands Conservancy’s 2022 Online Native Plant Sale has the plant for you. This year, we are offering over 50 native wildflower species, 11 native shrubs, and 5 native trees. Our 2022 Online Native Plant Sale brochure (enclosed in this issue) has detailed information about light and soil requirements, bloom color, and period of each plant. For more information visit the Native Plant Sale page under the news and events tab at HeartLandsConservancy.org
