'Native', as defined as a plant that originally was found in the eastern US. 'Native' would refer to plants that have not been altered by man, therefore, cultivars of native species would not be included in this list. Plants that originated in other countries, such as Europe, or Japan, and have since escaped cultivation to grow wild, are not included.
