Native Plant Resources and Sales
Native plants are species that originated or evolved in the soils, topography, and climate of western Washington, rather than being introduced to the landscape by humans. They are often grown from seeds collected in the wild and grown at elevations to match their destination.
Many organizations run their sales through pre-order only and the 2022 sales are complete; others are upcoming. ALL have websites filled with tips on choosing and planting native plants and trees.
