Native Shrubs and Trees
(not normally found in nurseries)
Shrubs and trees are the backbone of any landscape design and native trees and shrubs also benefit bugs, birds, bees and butterflies. Many are larval host plants for butterflies and moths. You can start your own food forest, if you can beat the birds to the fruit. All are underused in the landscape. These are native to Indiana; all are species, not cultivars; and all are from our ecoregion. You can see many of these plants on the Native Trees of Indiana River Walk on the Purdue Fort Wayne campus.
