WHAT IS A NATIVE PLANT?

A native plant is one that naturally occurs in a region without being introduced from elsewhere by people. Westchester County has many plants that have originated here and are considered "Westchester natives." Plants native to Westchester include ferns and clubmosses, grasses, sedges, rushes, flowering perennials, trees, shrubs, and vines.

"Wherever I go in America, I like it when the land speaks its own language in its own regional accent."

-Lady Bird Johnson
