Where can I get a list of native plants for my area which is in Abington, Pennsylvania?


We have a Subject Guide on Native Plants

Native Plants of PA  Subject Guide here

In addition to the books listed in the guide, you may want to look at the websites, especially the one from Jenkins Arboretum and its list of award-winning native plants.

Jenkins Arboretum Green Ribbon plants

Each year, the Jenkins Arboretum staff and Horticulture Committee select three native plants (a tree, shrub, and a fern or wildflower) that thrive in this region and designate them as Green Ribbon Native Plant® selections. These plants represent the species that grow here at the Arboretum and would be beautiful in residential and commercial landscapes throughout southeastern Pennsylvania.

See also the list from Mt. Cuba Center (Delaware)

Mt. Cuba Native Plant Finder here

This is a database of recommended natives.

Both lists will have plants suitable for your township. Hope this helps!
