Jensen: Native plants are a solution to landscaping issues
When choosing a plant for your garden, there are endless possibilities.
Unfortunately, many home gardeners fail to look beyond the usual hosta or daylily and miss the many benefits of native plants. In our area, the term “native plant” refers to any plant that is indigenous to Chicagoland. There are around 2,500 native species of trees, shrubs, wildflowers, grasses, and even a cactus to plant in your yard.
Native plants provide many benefits to both the homeowner and the environment. Once established, many native plants are extremely drought tolerant, which means you won’t have to water them as often. This frees up a few extra minutes for you, saves money and water, and your garden will look great, even in dry weather.
