Native Plants of the Pacific Northwest
Resources at the Seattle Public Library
Native plants are an important element of the Pacific Northwest's natural heritage. Coastal wetlands, alpine areas, prairies, temperate rainforests, and desert-like conditions are all found in our region. The plants in these habitats provide food and shelter for other organisms, offer insights into past and present natural processes, and provide us with comfort and enjoyment. The native plant topics covered in this list are as diverse as the plants themselves. Whether you are a hiker, a gardener, or a botanist, we invite you to learn more about the plants that surround us by exploring the following sources at the Seattle Public Library.
