This spreadsheet lists ~150 species native to the Hamilton Ontario area. It includes cultural information–height, bloom time, and bloom colour–to help gardeners choose plants for urban gardens.
The original list was developed by Prairie Moon, a US-based native seed and plant retailer. The entries were cross-referenced with the St. Williams nursery catalogue as well as the Evergreen.ca web site. If an entry did not appear in either place, it was removed. Anything that was obscure or simply unavailable was also removed. The goal was to create a practical list of options for home gardeners who may be unfamiliar with native plants. It is not an exhaustive list and will be improved as we discover errors and plants that really ought to be on the list.
