Not every “native” plant is suitable for or esthetically attractive to Northwest gardeners. Plants from other regions of the world are often more seductive and many of them make ideal additions to our gardens. Yet, more and more, we are encouraged to “go native.” It is easy to feel conflicted as you make your plant choices. Fortunately, striking a balance between the two approaches can offer pleasing results and satisfy both the need to be “responsible” gardeners and the desire for creative freedom and playfulness. There is a broad range of appealing plants that can help make the transition toward a more native garden.

This class is free and open to the public.

Dress appropriately for the weather.
