These plants are for the birds! Actually, yes they are. These trees, shrubs, perennials, and vines produce fruit or seeds that our native songbirds relish! In order for some of these perennial plants to be useful to birds, you will need to leave the seedheads, unsightly as they may seem to some, through fall and winter where the birds can properly utilize them. This list includes some of the top most important fall and winter fruits for your favorite feathered friends like Hollies, Beautyberries, Coneflowers - both Echinacea and Rudbeckias, and more.
3" wide creamy white flowers with a burgundy eye are produced from summer to fall on an upright growing perennial with small, trilobed, rich green foliage. The Pineland Hibiscus or Comfortroot is an uncommon native perennial Hibiscus found at the edge of pine forests, along rivers, and streams. It is not always long lived (3-6 years typically) but is certainly a worthy component of wildflower gardens, meadows, other natural settings, and near the back of the garden or landscape. Item# 9804
