The Native Plant Challenge

The Garden Club of Norfolk has accepted the Native Plant Challenge issued by the President of the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts. We will be encouraging our members to add native perennials, shrubs and trees to our landscapes. To help identify what is a native plant, we have compiled a List of native plants in NE.

Many of these plants are already in our ACE gardens, particularly in the Butterfly gardens at the H. Olive Day School, Stony Brook and the Federated Church.
