www.audubon.org/native-plants Such a terrific tool to find native plants for your geographic area! I plugged in my zip code, screened for trees only, and the data base supplied 46 trees that would support birds. If I had not filtered for trees, there were 104 plants to include annuals, perennials, grasses, succulents,shrubs,and vines. Audubonʻs stated goal is to get 1 million native plants for birds in the ground!
