Half the battle against invasive species is to focus on what you want growing there. Not only do native plants benefit the local fauna, they create a beautiful landscape!

Once established, native plants are easy to maintain because they are adapted to Montana's temperatures, rainfall patterns, and soil conditions.

Native Plants

  • Resist local pests and disease.

 

  • Reduce soil erosion, build soil structure, and absorb rainfall.

 

  • Require less water, and no fertilizer.

 

  • Are preferred by native birds, wildlife and pollinators for food and shelter. 

The mark of a healthy landscape is species diversity:  grasses, forbs, shrubs, and trees.
