Natives – Lists Of Georgia Plants

Q: Our garden club manages Parkwood Park in Decatur. We want to restrict the park to native plants so it will remain more of a woodland urban forest and not a ‘park’. Is there a list of Georgia native plants?

A: I don’t think you’ll find a better list that those in the three University of Georgia publications on native plants. I have links to them plus a pictorial guide at xrl.us/georgianatives. Don’t forget the resources available from the Georgia native Plant Society (www.gnps.org).
