The EcoScore is based on how many categories a native plant excels in specific functions. Native plants support local ecosystems better than introduced species, primarily by supporting food webs.  

 

The LandscapeScore is based on the aesthetic or ornamental functions of a native plant. 

Many are just as ornamental as common exotics. They are unique to your geographic region!
