Market your Orange County home to sell with native plants

Home sellers looking to add curb appeal to their properties to attract more potential buyers may wish to consider planting native fauna. Houses for sale in Orange County may gain a higher asking price if the property looks maintained.

According to the Natural History of Orange County, tropical milkweed is a native plant to the area. The flower features vibrant orange and yellow colors and attracts many different varieties of butterflies – especially monarchs.

If you’re looking for ground cover, but don’t want to invest in a tree, the Laurel sumac, a local shrub, can easily be used as a replacement. This plant can grow anywhere from 10 to 15 feet tall and is commonly found on dry ridges and canyons. This makes it perfect for those who hate to water on a daily basis. Blooming from June to July, it can give you that extra burst of vitality your yard needs - especially if you want to sell your home in the early summer season.

These and other native plants may be the ideal investment to make your home stand out from the crowd.
