If you live on the coast of North Carolina, you are not only lucky enough to get to appreciate wonderful ocean views and climate, but the beautiful flora and fauna as well. But does your yard or garden lack the beauty of this landscape, or are you looking to spruce things up a bit? This guide outlines the numerous trees, herbs, shrubs, graminoids and vines that should thrive in the coastal climate. Choosing to incorporate native plants into your landscape is a smart idea for those of us whose thumbs are not so green because they are already adapted to the environment you live in, meaning less maintenance. These plants also provide food and shelter for local animals, do not become invasive, and to top it off, are beautiful! Along with listing native plants, the guide also outlines leaf persistence, light requirements, soil moisture requirements, salt tolerance and market availability, so you can choose the perfect plant.
