Native plants

Plants that are native to Minnesota are often easier to grow than non-native varieties. They are already adapted to our soil and climate and need minimal care to grow and thrive.

Here are a few resources to get you started on selecting and growing native plants in your yard or garden. Some of these resources recommend both native and non-native plants. To find natives, pay attention to the details provided in the resources.
