nativegarden2010In the Southeast corner of the Community Education Garden, a section of Washington native plants segues to a blended home garden of shrubs, trees and perennials. The combination demonstrates ideas for incorporating native plants into an urban landscape, as well as ideas for season-long interest through combinations of perennials for texture, bloom color and bloom time. This area of the garden also demonstrates different irrigation techniques and mulch covers. Some sections are irrigated with inline drip, some with low-flow sprinklers, or microsprinklers. Mulches include gravel and bark.

This list is current as of September, 2017.

Plants native to Washington may find a place in home gardens in central Washington. Read and download our booklet for details on native plants in our garden, and visit them in our garden throughout the seasons to evaluate how they may perform in your garden.
