Choosing native plants

Asked May 7, 2019, 10:03 PM EDT

I live in Zone 7 in Maryland. I have been using the Piedmont Guide for choosing native plants. However, other things I read suggest I could expand my native plant choices to include all plants native to the Mid-Atlantic region. What would you recommend?

Take a look at our website on native plants. If you are shopping for native plant products, buy from local nurseries and ask for plants descended from wild populations in your ecoregion. See the Maryland Ecoregions http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/what-native-plant
