*Each fact sheet for our Tried and True Native Plant Selections specifies the areas in which the plant is indigenous. Most of the recommended species are native to (some parts of) the Mid-Atlantic Region. The featured plant for the week will indicate this with our MGNV Native Plants logo. This does not necessarily mean, though, that every plant is native to your particular area.
