Why Should I Use Willamette Valley Native Plants In My Garden?
Most seeds that are labeled "Pacific Northwest Wildflowers" are not native to the Willamette Valley. Many of these species are native to the Midwest which has hot, humid summers and cold winters. Willamette Valley natives are adapted to our unique climate with cool, wet winters and warm dry summers. Native plants are critical for birds, bees, and other wildlife that have co-evolved within this diverse ecosystem.
