What wildflowers are native
to Long Island and where can I buy
There is so much information out there
that I find my region, Long Island, seems
to get lost. There is only 1 local nursery
listed on your site as a supplier, and they
did not answer my query. I'd really like
to choose just one or two species to start
with in my new home's backyard.
I can't supply you with a list of native species for Long Island, but I can get close. The Connecticut Botanical Society on their web site has an excellent feature titled "Gardening with Native Plants". It shows photographs and gives information about soil type, sun requirements, bloom period, and much more for recommended native plants for the area. Long Island and Connecticut should share many common native species of wildflowers. In the New York Flora Atlas from the New York Flora Association, you find a checklist for Nassau County to compare with the list from the Connecticut Botanical Society. The New England Wildflower Society web page should also contain useful information.
