Personal stories about native plants in our gardens and natural ecosystems

Complementing Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s top “how to” guides like Great Natives for Tough Places, A Native Plants Reader offers a set of engaging narratives on the importance of native plants. Expert contributors convey their passion for native plants, concerns about the loss of plant and animal diversity in our increasingly urbanized world, and hopes for preservation of our native plant heritage.
