Western Pennsylvania native plants grow in a huge rainbow of colors, are extremely hardy and have wonderful names.

Blue Curls, Thimbleweed, Goat’s Beard, Seedbox, Bishop’s Cap, Monkey Flower, Nodding Onion, Virgin’s Bower, Ninebark, Solomon’s Seal, Fire Pink, Nannyberry, Jack-in-the-Pulpit, Boneset, Squirrel Corn, Dutchman’s Breeches, Foamflower, Spicebush, Joe Pye, Cardinal Flower , Witchhazel, Spicebush-- among many others, are all part of our rich native plant heritage.

These plants grew naturally here in Western PA before the arrival of European settlers and have evolved and adapted naturally to thrive in the soils, climate, topography and moisture conditions of the Pittsburgh Plateau. These plants belong here with us in our local landscapes and yet many are disappearing.

We can enrich our sense of place and well being and increase biodiversity by planting and growing natives.
