Bringing Nature Home - How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants

All plants are not created equal, particularly in their ability to support wildlife.  Most of our native plant-eaters are not able to eat alien plants, and we are replacing native plants with alien species at an alarming rate, especially in the suburban gardens on which our wildlife increasingly depends.  My central message is that unless we restore native plants to our suburban ecosystems, the future of biodiversity in the United States is dim.

Native plants are well adapted to their particular ecological niche and so are often far less difficult to grow than species from other altitudes, latitudes, and habitats.  After all, these plants evolved here and were just fine long before we laid our heavy hands on the landscape.
