Natives... for a naturally beautiful yard.

Native plants are critical for the environment. Many serve as food sources for native insects, which in turn are food sources for birds and other animals, ah the circle of life! Unfortunately, most native insects are unable to feed on non-native plants. So, to keep that circle going, it is critical that gardeners include native plants in their landscapes. Furthermore, since native plants are well adapted to our local climate and native soil, they will require less care than many non-natives.

When you shop at Behnke's, pick up our free Behnke BaySafe® Plants brochure. The plants listed are not only great for the environment but also offer ornamental qualities; attractive flowers, fruits, foliage and bark. So, you can improve the environment around your home and beautify your garden at the same time.
