American Beauties

Garden Plan
Choose from 4 different American Beauties garden plans by visiting www.abnativeplants.com

The American Beauties collection of native plants makes it easy to use trees, shrubs, vines, grasses and wildflowers that are beautiful and good for wildlife. Native plant experts and wildlife experts have teamed up to create four gardens guaranteed to bring life to your landscape by providing food and habitat for a variety of desirable critters.

Native plants provide the best source of food and cover for wildlife and are ideally suited to the soils and climate they evolved in. Because of this, they generally require minimal fertilizer, little supplemental water after they are established and no pest control.

Buying American Beauties brings life to your garden and helps a great cause. Every American Beauties plant sold benefits the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) and their work to create better home landscape environments for you and the colorful garden critters you love. When you purchase an American Beauties plant, 25 cents, 50 cents or $1 will be donated to NWF to help fund their home habitat work and outreach programs.

We're proud to offer the following selection froms the American Beauties collection this season - look for them in their distinctive light green pots.
