Gardeners in the Intermountain West can make a positive contribution to the planet's health by providing habitat in our landscapes with the use of native plants. This native songbird garden for the Intermountain West contains (2) plants of Liatris punctata and (1) plant each of Andropogon gerardii Windwalker, Bouteloua gracilis Blonde Ambition, Schizachyrium scoparium Standing Ovation, Chamaebatiaria millefolium, Chrysothamnus nauseosus La Plata OR Rhus trilobata, Eriogonum umbellatum v. aureum Kannah Creek, Fallugia paradoxa, Forestiera neomexicana Berry Girl, Philadelphus microphyllus Desert Snow, Prunus besseyi ‘P011S’ (Pawnee Buttes), Ribes odoratum Crandall, Helianthus maximiliana Santa Fe, Monarda fistulosa and Zauschneria garrettii Orange Carpet® for a total of sixteen plants. Each Pre-Planned Garden comes with premium plants, planting diagrams and maintenance instructions for proper placement and plant care.
The latest scientific research has revealed that native plants, not Old World (non-native) species, provide essential food for butterfly and moth caterpillars that birds collect to feed their chicks. Very recent studies by University of Delaware's Prof. Doug Tallamy, in conjunction with the National Wildlife Federation, have revealed that certain natives are better than others for this purpose. Using this new information, we have put together regional collections of the best native perennials, ornamental grasses and shrubs to plant for the benefit of songbird populations. Now, we can all pitch in to help the songbirds raise their families and beautify our properties with hardy, low care native plants.
Each Native Songbird Pre-Planned Garden comes with planting diagrams and maintenance instructions for proper placement and plant care. (Note: we reserve the right to substitute another regionally suitable plant should any of the listed varieties be unavailable.) The plants in this garden are cold hardy in USDA zones 5-8. This garden collection covers an area from 216 to 240 sq. ft. in size.
