Why native plants?
Native plants support our native birds, butterflies, bees and other native wildlife.
Native plants are adapted to our climate, soil, and have supported native wildlife and insects through the ages. Native plants, wildlife and insects have evolved together in the Pacific Northwest and therefore benefit each other.

When properly located and established, native plants do well with little care. They are drought tolerant and most plants can be grown without fertilizers or pesticides. They are rarely invasive, just like some non-native plants.

When planted in the right place, with the right amount of light and humidity, native plants thrive. Some do well in the shade of other trees. Some do well under evergreens that deflect rain during the winter months. Some are prairie plants that grow in full sun.

Our native plants, unlike non-native plants, are uniquely adapted to our unusual Pacific Northwest climate. In winter we have a steady supply of rain, and in summer we have little measurable precipitation.
Non-native plants generally require irrigation in the summer, and drought-tolerant non-native plants don’t like our wet winters and can die from root rot and other diseases. People can save time, money and water by planting native plants. Native plants provide food, shelter and places to raise young for our native wildlife. They reduce flooding and erosion by slowing down and absorbing water during winter rains.

You are definitely making a positive contribution to our environment when you plant native plants!
