Native Plants

Native Plants are an important part of preserving biodiversity. By creating a native plant garden, each patch of habitat becomes part of a collective effort to nurture and sustain the living landscape of Oregon. Learn planning, planting and maintenance of native plants in your garden.


Native Plants for Pollinators

Planning updates to your garden to support pollinators?  Start with these general guidelines:

  • Use a combination of Trees - Shrubs – Plants - Bulbs

  • Plant for all seasons – Use a variety of flower shapes, colors & sizes. Pollinators have seasons too!

  • Plant clusters with 3, 5, 7 or more plants–pleasing to the eye and less work for bees.
