Landscaping with Native Plants

Whether you have a charming backyard, a proper garden, or a small porch, this list of native plants is perfect for enjoying the outdoors as well as a great way to keep your community beautiful and show your knowledge of native plants.

Also, did you know that using native plants supports native birds and wildlife, conserves water, and requires very little upkeep to maintain gorgeous outdoor areas? Here are some suggestions...

The Coconut Palm: Shade to lie under, coconut water to drink, coconut meat to eat, and a perfect place to hang your hammock...

Plumeria Tree: Famed for its sweet fragrance and stunning beauty, the plumeria tree is a must in any local garden.

The Guamuchitl: The most beloved tree of our local wildlife. Put one of these in the corner of the yard, and you are guaranteed sightings of exotic birds, green iguanas and more as it fruits.
