In the United States, a native plant is defined as one that was naturally found in a particular area before European colonization. Native plants are the foundation of a region’s biodiversity, providing essential food sources and shelter for birds, especially those threatened by the changing climate. Since native plants are adapted to local precipitation and soil conditions, they generally require less upkeep, therefore helping the environment and saving you time, water, and money. The key to getting started is picking the right plants for your area.
The Best Results for your area have been hand-selected by Audubon experts in your region. They are important bird resources that are relatively easy to grow and are available at native plant nurseries. Filter your results by types of plants, resources, and the bird families you'd like to attract, or search for specific plant names. Add plants to your list by selecting the checkbox below each plant profile. Then click the orange "Get your plant list" button below to receive an emailed list.
The Full Results list contains all the plants that are native to your area, including many species that may be less important bird resources, harder to find at your local nursery, or have more specific growing requirements than the special selection of these plants in Best Results. Filter your results by types of plants, resources, and the bird families you'd like to attract, or search for specific plant names.
