Though I haven't entirely eliminated the hostas, daylillies and roses from my gardens, my plant selections now lean more towards prairie alumroot, coneflowers (Echinacea), bee balm (Monarda), joe-pye weed, and little bluestem. When I wanted an ornamental tree for my front yard, I chose a redbud, a native species, instead of a magnolia or callery pear. I was fortunate in that my front yard already came planted with a linden (Tilia americana). Wildlife needs places to hide from people, predators, and inclement weather.
