Native plants are a popular choice in the upper Midwest because of their diversity, reliability and beauty. The use of Native plants:
- Attracts birds, butterflies and other wildlife by providing habitat and food that they enjoy.
- Stabilizes the soil and prevents runoff, which may be polluted, into streams and rivers.
- In a rain garden helps to filter and clean water from downspouts and parking lots before it reaches the water table.
- Cuts down on mowing and fertilization of a typical lawn, further reducing sources of pollution to the environment.
