Native plant lists

Six native plant lists – from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection

These lists are not exhaustive, but include plants that are generally available at local nurseries. The lists include suggestions for small shrubs, large shrubs, and trees, as well as ground covers and perennials. Each list is tailored to the amount of sun the planting site receives, as well as whether the soil is moist or dry. A site with full sun gets more than 5 hours a day of direct sun. A partly sunny site gets 2 – 5 hours of direct sun a day, or a full day of dappled sun. A shady site gets less than 2 hours a day of direct sun.
