Plants native to Alberta
Native Alberta Plants
Gardening can sometimes be defined as cultivating species of Flowers, vegetables or trees that do not commonly occur in your back yard. The challenge is often to find plants, shrubs and trees that will survive our Canadian winters and the rigors of our back yard environments including drought or shade.
When you use plants native to your area you can eliminate many of the hazards of gardening, because you can be sure the plants will be cold tolerant and definitely hardy in your conditions. The only challenge with growing native plants, then, would be to choose the varieties and species that best suited your needs for colour, fragrance, shade or growth habit to fit your landscaping ideas or garden design.
It is often the case that native plants grown under the more generous and fertile conditions of the home garden will produce longer stems, larger and more numerous Flowers and be much more beautiful than they were in their original locations.
