The Lexington Chapter of Wild Ones is an environmental advocacy group that promotes the use of native plants in private gardens and public landscapes. Plants that are native to our region thrive here because they are adapted to our climate. They feed our local insects and sustain the higher order fauna of our region. Many native plants are stunningly beautiful and make great garden plants. In fact, gardening with natives is Nature’s way.
