Plants native to Michigan

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) As we get ready to celebrate Earth Day, WOTV4 Women crew member, Michele Fife, shares ideas on keeping your yard green by using plants native to Michigan.

Fife says these types of plants sustain better in your yard because they can hold up in this climate.  For you, it means less maintenance, you don’t need to worry as much about pesticides and watering. If you work with a local nursery, they can give you advice on what native plants to bring into your yard.

Fife recommends red twig dogwood, Juneberry, black-eyed Susan and low grow sumac.
