American Beauties Native Plants®

Make Your Garden Come Alive

Welcome to our Media Room, we’re so glad you came. We would like to be your resource for information about gardening with native plants. 

Whether you or your readers are concerned about the alarming decrease in pollinator populations or if you’d just like to write about butterfly gardens, we can help. This page will offer all kinds of resources for you from an Image Library to a Native Plant Finder with an Advanced Plant Search. If you are working on a story idea and have questions or need help, please write to me directly at: peggyanne@abnativeplants.com.

Your story is important to us. Together we can inspire positive change for our communities and for the environment. Thank you for visiting our site, Peggy Anne and everyone at American Beauties Native Plants
