From our design team to you
80 of our Favorite Plants
With thousands of plants to choose from in the Midwest, these are the ones we use over and over.
When designing different plant systems, we noticed how frequently we came up with many of the same plants species, project after project. This is of no surprise as there are so many familiar species that people want to have and enjoy. So, if one never left this list they could still create endless permaculture designs of orchard gardens, food forests or plant guilds that are comprehensive and highly functional.
To be clear, we all end up adding additional species to this list over time but when getting started, this list will take a new designer a long way. Enjoy!
