It’s Native Plant Appreciation Week, which means it’s time to acknowledge the trees, shrubs, and groundcovers that make our native landscapes in the Pacific Northwest so unique. In celebration of Native Plant Appreciation Week, we wanted to share a colorful tribute to the native plants that call Washington home. Check out the full spectrum of plants below, and help us celebrate the vibrant diversity of our native plants!
