Popular Native Plants & Trends for Bucks County

As the days get longer and warmer, Bucks County homeowners are eager to refresh their landscapes! While it might seem like spring is already here, we aren't quite ready to jump into plantings just yet! When the time is right, consider embracing the beauty and benefits of native plants while incorporating some of the hottest trends in design. With approximately 2,100 native plants in Pennsylvania, we’ll narrow it down to a handful of our favorites. 

Must-Have Spring Natives

  • Wild Columbine (Aquilegia canadensis): These charming red and yellow blooms attract hummingbirds and add a splash of color to shady spots.

  • Virginia Bluebells (Mertensia virginica): Delicate blue flowers create a woodland feel, perfect for dappled sunlight conditions.

  • Butterfly Weed (Asclepias tuberosa): A vibrant orange milkweed that's essential for Monarch butterfly survival.

  • Golden Ragwort (Packera aurea): Bright yellow, daisy-like flowers add early season cheer and thrive in moist areas.

2023 Trends with a Native Twist

  • Pollinator Patches: Create dedicated areas filled with native flowering plants to attract butterflies, bees, and other beneficial insects.

  • Cottagecore Gardens: Embrace a whimsical, informal style with an abundance of native wildflowers and soft, textured plants.

  • "Rewilding" Corners: Let a small portion of your yard grow a bit wilder, allowing native grasses (like Switchgrass) and wildflowers to flourish for a natural meadow look.

  • Water-Wise Design: Include drought-tolerant native plants to reduce water usage and create a sustainable and beautiful landscape.

Why Go Native?

  • Low-Maintenance: Native plants are adapted to Bucks County's climate and soil, requiring less water, fertilizer, and fuss.

  • Wildlife Support: Native plants provide food and shelter for local birds, butterflies, and other important creatures.

  • Ecosystem Preservation: Using native species helps protect the biodiversity and ecological balance of our region.
