Native Plants

Native plants include flowers, shrubs, trees, vines, ground cover, and weeds! Environmentalists prescribe a “messy yard” with a diverse collection of native plants, free from pesticides and with access to clean water, as a pollinator-friendly space. Our pollinators need native plants for food, shelter, and to reproduce. Native plants define our landscape: the natural beauty of Simsbury and diversity of wildlife within it are inextricably intertwined and merit protection.
