Native spring ephemerals can be used in addition to bulbs

last month

You may have heard we can use our gardens to help wildlife by providing some of the habitat they've lost through development and deer over browsing.

There are native spring ephemerals that I use in the same situations as I use bulbs. These are in the layer most likely to be missing in natural areas now so I feel good about using them. I think they're more often sold as plants than bulbs, but otherwise there are a lot of similarities.

I'm linking to a page that has information including some pictures. These are for Virginia but they are native here in NJ too. You'd want to see what is native in your area. If you need help with that can let you know, or if you're curious about these or other native plants I can give you more information.
