Landscaping

Many native plants are attractive as ornamentals and adapt easily to garden conditions in the Pacific Northwest. Fall is the best time for planting to create a woodland, wetland, or meadow in your own western Washington landscape. Or, if you live in eastern Washington, try landscaping with dryland shrubs, perennials, and grasses which can be planted in the spring or fall. 

Why Landscape with Native Plants
Native Plant Lists for Western Washington Gardens and Restoration Projects
These native plant lists will help you find native plants suitable for a place in your western Washington garden or restoration project. Over 200 species of native plants are included. The Starflower Foundation compiled these lists as part of the Starflower Image Herbarium.
