    Fall is the best time for planting, and natives are your best choice for plants that are low maintenance, beautiful, and great for attracting birds and butterflies to your garden.
    Are you planting a Monarch Waystation? Make sure you get Goldenrods, Asters and other fall bloomers for nectar!
