Southampton New York Top Five Plant List
Plants To Boost Your Southampton Property
In permaculture design, I use elements that offer multiple benefits. This is known as stacking functions. This is no different if you are considering plants or hardscape features. Today I’m going to share my top five plant picks for Southampton yards, plants with more than just one beneficial quality.
- Agastache nepetoides – Yellow Giant Hyssop is a beautiful native plant that is threatened statewide. Planting it in your yard can help save this plant as well as provide critical habitat for birds and other beneficial pollinator species which rely on it for food and shelter. Agastache as a genus offers many colors, and this species has the same beautiful greyish-green leaves as others in this genus. The scent is no less than glorious, explaining what drives bees so crazy around these plants.
