Riparian zones can support plants that are unable to exist anywhere else. These plants in turn help to keep the riparian zone healthy and functioning properly. A plant guide for creekside residents can be found at Grow Green’s Creekside Homeowners Landscape Design Template , for a more general streamside restoration plant list check the Riparian Template. It is important to remember that healthy riparian vegetation can look shaggy and overgrown as it transitions into a mature woodland.
