Our Native Plants

Along with all the other garden plants, Heather Gardens also grows natives; plants that are native to the U.S., plants native to Massachusetts, plants native to Martha's Vineyard from Vineyard seed stock. From Asclepias tuberosa (orange buttefly weed) and other milkweeds, to the uncommon Liatris scariosa v. novae-angliae (the New England Blazing Star) and Hibiscus palustris (our native pink mallow with no red eye) amongst others, we try to provide healthy native plants (and plug trays for those needing larger quantities) of our showy, adaptable native flowers.
