Native plants are becoming more and more prominent — cost-effective, wildlife-friendly, and already suited to their native environment, they're a great option to showcase the natural beauty Minnesota has to offer.


Native plants require the same attention to detail as other plants — soil moisture, sun exposure, and soil type are all considerations when choosing plants — but there are a few other things native growers can consider, too. Here are a few resources and ideas for those interested in exploring native plants.

  • Visit natural areas in your region. This gives you a great idea of what plants, trees, and shrubs are suited to your area. Plus it can be great inspiration for a "wish list," helping you choose the kinds of things you want in your garden.
  • Native plants, like many plants, need a few years to establish; it won't happen overnight. But as they grow, the plants will spread and propogate.
  • Don't use endangered or threatened species. While many are stunning, taking and importing these species is illegal. Moving it will likely kill the plant, and imports can introduce gene variability that threatens the species.

Minnesota DNR has a lot of great resources that you can use for ideas and instructions.


Home Sown Gardens is happy to incorporate native plant considerations and pollinator-friendly habitats as part of our Renewal Design and Installation service.

The glory of gardening:
hands in the dirt,
head in the sun,
heart with nature.
To nuture a garden is to feed
not just the body, but the soul.
