UW Botanic Gardens: Gardening With Native Plants

Learn more about the big trend in landscaping with native plants and why these low-maintenance beauties have become so popular. Take home a list of Susie’s favorite native shrubs, perennials, ferns and groundcovers that have adapted to the conditions here in the Pacific Northwest. They will not only save you water, energy, effort, and money but will also attract butterflies, birds, and help feed native wildlife. Susie will also share her favorite websites, books and places to obtain native plants.

Let Mother Nature do all the work and leave you with time to simply enjoy it!
