Native plants are the superheroes for our gardens. In places where there’s too little water, drought-tolerant native plants add color to a dry landscape. Native plants also come to the rescue when planted as rain gardens where storms dump heavy rainfall that flood yards with the runoff.
Native plants were here long before we landscapers arrived. They are an essential part of the topography because they know how to survive through tough conditions.
Because they’re well-suited for growing around here, they don’t need as much water or soil amendments as non-natives do. They also provide an important food source for our other natives, like bees, butterflies, birds and pollinators of all kinds.
In our region we’re lucky to have some of the most beautiful native plants around. Native herbaceous perennials, like pussytoes, purple poppy mallow and Rocky Mountain penstemon, are naturally adapted to the harsh growing conditions of our region. Colorado Landscapes loves to add plants like these and many others to our clients’ landscapes!
