A native perennial is a plant species that occurs naturally in a particular region, without human introduction or intervention. Native plants are those that have evolved over time to adapt to the local environmental conditions, such as climate, soil, and available resources. They have established a natural balance with the other living organisms in the region, including wildlife, insects, and microorganisms.
Native plants have also been shaped by the local geology, hydrology, and climate patterns, which give them unique characteristics and resilience to local environmental stresses. Overall, native plants are an important part of the local ecosystem and can provide many benefits for both humans and wildlife.
