Using the Species Lists from the Database
The species lists that you generate from Evergreen's database are intended to help you get started. We recommend you use these lists as a starting point, and then take your list to a local native plant expert, grower, conservation authority, native plant society or field naturalist club for more detailed information about these species and their appropriateness for your local site conditions.
The Database is Still Growing
The Native Plant Database will continually be growing and getting refined as we receive feedback and information from you, the user, and our native plant reviewers.
