Native plants grow best in your garden because millions of years of evolution can’t be wrong. They are suited to the soil, the crappy winters, they expect the usual rainfall and eventually get so dense they beat up on weeds. If you are a lazy would be gardener who uses the excuse “I don’t know what to plant” go easy on yourself and choose a bunch of stuff from the list and stick it in your garden.
Picture above is wild bergamot also known as Bee Balm. Smells like Earl Grey Tea.
