Results/Conclusions . Overall results can be summarized as follows: 1) As expected, most trees and shrubs in the suburban landscapes are dominated by non-native ornamental plants. 2) Using published accounts I show that most of these ornamental plants provide inferior habitat and food compared to native plants. 3) Most homeowners (74%) are slightly to very interested in having more native plant species, with the major obstacle being lack of familiarity with natives. 4) Perhaps surprisingly, many homeowners (31%) would favor making native shrubs and trees a requirement in their neighborhood association agreement. 5) Older residential landscapes (> 40 yr) have much higher species diversity than newer ones but there is no statistical difference between homeowners in older and newer residential area in their interest in native plant landscaping. 6) Property owners of commercial properties have a much lower interest in native plant landscaping (<21%), with owners of private cemeteries (62%) and churches (55%) have intermediate levels of interest. 7) Surveyed home builders showed very little interest in native plant landscaping (11%) but most (92%) noted that native plant landscaping was not an obstacle to selling homes and most (88%) agreed that homes could be completely landscaped with native plants with no impact on sales as long as the aesthetic and ease of maintenance values were the same.
