Brenden, as far as I know, only Virginia Snakeroot would be native in your area. Here's the USDA map: http://plants.usda.gov/core/pr...

If you plant those, plant more than one...preferably six or more to start with. The plants can be small and the caterpillars eat so much foliage!
I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. E. B.White
