MADISON -- May is planting time and adding even a few native plants to your property can help increase habitat for native birds, bees, butterflies and other wildlife.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Wisconsin Native Plants [PDF] publication lists native plants that will do well in Wisconsin's different regions and its last page links to specific guides for plants to benefit pollinators, birds and more.

Native plant nurseries and native plant sales are good options for buying native plants like this joe pye weed, which attracts many butterflies including the eastern tiger swallowtail pictured.  - Photo credit: DNR

Good options for getting plants include vendors on this list of Wisconsin native plant nurseries [PDF] and the growing number of native plant sales put on by conservation organizations and nature centers, including a May 9 native plant fundraiser in Madison for the Endangered Resources Fund.
