What are some plant names in a native meadow?

Asked January 25, 2020, 3:38 PM EST

I live in a new neighborhood. The builder cleared a small meadow to plant trees, destroying habitat for many birds, bees, butterflies, and other insects. There were wild flowers, grasses, wild berries, and small trees in the meadow. I'd like to re-establish as many of the native meadow plants as I can. I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks. Tom

You did not mention where the property is located.
If the property is a common area, there may be a plan for rebuilding or replanting on the neighborhood master plan. Check with your Home Owners Assn or the Board of Directors for this information.

If this is your property, here is our webpage on how to make a meadow by using smaller meadow projects using a modular approach. This includes a list of recommended native plants. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/how-make-meadow
