ArticleMany people think of shade or woodland gardens when they think of growing native plants. In fact, many woodland plants do very well in garden settings, but careful selection and care is essential to making your woodland garden flourish.
ArticleMany Pacific Northwest (PNW) native plants have a natural tolerance for summer dry periods common in the near-Mediterranean climate found west of the Cascade Mountains in Oregon and Washington. These plants include species growing in woodlands, savannahs, meadows and vernal pools (seasonally wet meadows that dry out in the summer months).
ArticleNative plants that grow naturally in or very near water (“at the water’s edge”) are adapted to conditions very close to or actually in the stream. Other plants are suitable for drier areas above the actual water table.
CollectionPacific Northwest native plants can be used for a wide variety of landscape situations, including WaterWise gardens and borders.
