Why Native Plants?

Native Plants support our native birds, butterflies, bees, and other native wildlife. Native plants are suited to our climate, our soil, and have supported the native wildlife and insects throughout the ages. Native plants, wildlife and insects evolved together in the Pacific Northwest and as a result, mutually benefit one another.  When properly located and established, native plants do well with little care. They are drought tolerant, and most plants can be grown with no fertilizers or pesticides. They are rarely invasive, as are some non-native plants.  When planted in the right place, with the right amount of light and moisture, native plants thrive.  Some do well in the shade of other trees.  Some do well under conifer trees that deflect rain during winter months. Some are meadow 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 rainfall. Non-native plants usually require irrigation in the summer, and non-native drought tolerant plants do not 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 and absorbing water during winter rainfalls. You definitely make a difference for birds butterflies and bees when you plant native plants.
