Companion Plantings are intended to give the designer guidance for incorporating natives into a traditional landscape design, rain garden, etc. Companion plantings give the designer plants with similar textures and overlapping bloom times, thus providing maximum aesthetic appeal in a garden design. Companion plantings are not to be confused with a plant association list which are a list of plants that have been found typically growing with the listed species in a natural ecosystem.
