If you are looking to add a few plants to your foundation plantings or even adding a new garden now is the time to consider native plants. Native plants have spent all of their time thriving in Minnesota’s growing conditions and can be much easier to grow than non-native varieties.

Native plants are also adapted to our soil conditions and climate which means they require less care in terms of watering and fertilizing than many other plants once they are established.   These plants are perfect for pollinators, birds and other wildlife providing both food and habitat.

At Sargent’s you can find a whole display of beautiful, hardy Minnesota and Wisconsin native plants to compliment your landscape.  Here are some of the fantastic varieties you can find in the garden center in addition to native grasses, shrubs and trees.  Click to see more information in Plant Finder!
