4 Great Native Virginia Plants For Your Garden or Yard
April 24, 2012 By
Winter is over and it’s time to bring life back to your yard. When picking out your new blooms consider adding native plants. Native plants are well adapted to their surroundings already and are typically cheaper to purchase than those that were imported. These 4 Virginian plants can make a great addition.
- Virginia Spiderwort – Long, slender, tapering leaves give this plant a spider-like appearance with violet colored blooms that open from late spring to mid summer.
- Field Pussytoes – These foot-tall plants feature white flowers that grow up the side of flower stalk and resemble tufts of cat hair, hence the name pussytoes.
- Marsh Marigold – These bright-yellow flowering plants prefer lots of sun and lots of water so be prepared to put them in a sunny spot and water often.
- Anemone – This low-maintenance flower is one of the longest lasting spring flowers in Virginia and boasts beautiful white and baby-pink blooms.
