Native Plants for Home Gardens
Native Trees
Sugar maple (Acer saccharum). This tree provides spectacular fall
colour and is a food source for small wild animals.
Larch, hatmatack, tamarack ( Larix laricina). This unique tree is a
deciduous conifer and the soft green needles turn yellow and
fall off in the autumn.
Red oak ( Quercus rubrum). Red oaks form massive specimens that
are resistant to wind. Acorns are important food for squirrels.
Native Mountain Ash (Sorbus americana). These trees produce
lovely foliage with clusters of white flowers in spring, bright
red fruits and reddish leaf color in fall.
Native Shrubs
Serviceberry ( Amelanchier canadensis). The first shrub to
flower in the spring, this rose relative has wonderful white
flowers followed by edible, deep purple fruit in late summer.
Red Osier dogwood (Cornus sericea). If you’re looking for good
winter colour, consider this shrub with deep red the twigs and
stems. These shrubs are commonly seen along roadsides in
Native roses ( Rosa virginiana, Rosa carolina). Our native roses
are lovely and hardy, very fragrant and produce large beautiful hips after
flowering. R. virginiana’s leaves turn red-purple in fall.
Wild Raisin (Viburnum cassinoides). This flowering and fruit-producing shrub
prefers acidic soils, and has terrific colours in autumn.
Herbaceous Plants
Turtlehead ( Chelone glabra). This is a lovely plant for a damp
area or beside a pond, with white flowers.
Bunchberry, crackerberry (Cornus canadensis). Bunchberry is a
great groundcover in woodland gardens, the low growing
plant has white flowers in spring and orange, bland but edible
berries in fall.
Clintonia, Bluebead Lily ( Clintonia borealis). This striking
woodland plant, with shining foliage and clusters of small
yellow, lily-like flowers in spring, is followed by a cluster of blue, inedible berries.
Joe-Pye Weed, purple boneset (Eupatorium maculatum). A favourite for damp areas,
including bogs and pond gardens, this 4 foot tall plant boasts flower heads of deep
rose and is loved by butterflies and bees.
Ferns. From the stately ostrich fern, Matteucia struthiopteris to the evergreen
holly or Christmas fern,Polystichum acrostichoides, there are wonderful ferns for
most gardens.
