Here’s another reason to consider growing native flowers in your own backyard: They are very easy to grow. Usually when planting a new garden, you have to take the time to weed, till and amend with organic fertilizer to make it rich and loamy. But the reality is native flowers -- plants that are indigenous to your growing region -- are adapted to regular soil. If you try to plant native flowers in soil that is too rich and fluffy, it actually can cause tall flowers to flop over.
