Here is a link to Doug Tallamy’s list of Keystone Plants–we offer many Keystone Species. They are tagged in the online store as Keystone to help you quickly find them. Keystone species are the backbone plants for an ecosystem. Dr. Tallamy’s research has revealed that these plants support the greatest diversity of insects. After plants, insects are critical for healthy ecological functioning.
All trees and shrubs are in 5 gallon pots unless otherwise noted.
