Native Plants Resources

The Henrico County Planning Department has created a list of trees and other plantings that are native to Virginia and have adapted to flourish in our climate. The Native Virginia Species list is a great resource for developers, landscapers and residents who want to “plant native.” Along with their ability to thrive naturally in our county, these native plants are suggested for developers who are seeking compliance with Henrico County’s planning and development ordinances. Currently, a minimum of 35% of all plants in a proposed landscaping plan must be Native Virginia Species. Henrico’s environmental stewardship mission is clear: create healthy green spaces and enhance the beauty of our county for the future.
