Native Plant List


The plants on this list were recommended to us during several site visits with Hummingbird Hill as species that should be present in our ecosystem, but are not, or are only present in small numbers. 

Be aware that we have many Black Walnut trees at Panorama, and not all plants are able to thrive next to that species. If your loved one’s grave is near a Black Walnut tree, please let Hummingbird Hill know that you are looking for walnut-tolerant species only. 


(*) indicates that we have already begun to introduce this species at PNB courtesy of Hummingbird Hill!
