Native plant resource

A new website, www.can-plant.ca, allows users to search a comprehensive list of plants from across the country based on their growth form and growing conditions. Launched in January 2020, CanPlant is a relaunch of the Evergreen Native Plant Database. CanPlant includes user-friendly searchable fields such as native range, growth form, light, moisture, and soil requirements, and users can create a profile to save plant lists for export. The site also builds on the original database by linking to biodiversity resources and will be updated on an ongoing basis in response to feedback and new research in the native plant gardening and ecological restoration fields. The Resources page includes a map of native plant nurseries across Canada and other tips on gardening, and the Blog is updated regularly.
