Benefits of Planting Native Species


  • Native plants have evolved over thousands of years to exist among an area’s particular climate, soils and precipitation amounts.  They have also evolved to deal with indigenous insects, fungi and diseases.
  • What this means to the landowner is that native plants require less care to maintain and they require less watering.
  • They are aesthetically and biologically in harmony with the natural landscape.
  • Non-native ornamental plants often require fertilizers, pesticides and regular watering.
  • In addition, non-native plants such as hybrids may not produce fruit or seed, which precludes wildlife from using them as a food source.
  • Native plants are the fundamental component in the landscape that provides wildlife habitat to the Cape’s native wildlife species.
  • Animals have co-evolved with these native plants for their breeding, food and shelter requirements.  Planting with native plants helps to protect wildlife habitat in your area.
