Keystone Species

Want to support strong food webs? Include keystone species in your garden!

Keystone plants have been identified by entomologists and horticulturalists as the powerhouses of strong food webs. These plants help to support biodiverse ecosystems, even in the smallest of backyards. The trees, shrubs, and perennials listed here play host to hundreds of caterpillar species which in turn provide food for birds and mammals.
