Native Plants

Pollinators such as honey bees have a beneficial relationship with native plants!  When we increase a pollinator’s access to flowers – and pollen and nectar – we increase their populations.  And, when we increase the number of pollinators in our ecosystem, we get more abundant, and more healthy, native plants – helping our ecosystem and all its interconnected parts thrive. 

If you’d like to help pollinators and our environment at large, consider planting a garden consisting of flowering native plants year round – the birds, bees, and even salmon will thank you! 

Start by planning your garden with a selection of plants that flower during each season (1).  Below we have created a table of our favorite flowering plants during each season.  Happy planting!
