Clark Conservation District Native Plant Sale
January 25 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00am on Monday and Thursday, repeating until February 18, 2021
Native plants make a great, low maintenance addition to any yard or garden and are truly a gift to our local environment — they support birds, pollinators and other wildlife, control erosion, protect streams and lakes and much more. Several popular species have sold out and been restocked, including western bleeding heart and kinnikinnick (now sold as a bareroot plug). Make sure you get orders in ASAP to ensure you get the species you want.
This is a pre-order sale. Plants must be picked up at 11104 N.E. 149th St. in Brush Prairie on Saturday, Feb. 27, at the selected pickup time. Review the ordering and pick-up procedures in the Guide to the 2021 Native Plant Sale or on the Clark Conservation District website.
Not sure which species to order? Here are some suggestions:
- Kinnikinnick (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi): This low-growing shrub is low maintenance and produces both flowers and berries which are well-loved by birds and other wildlife.
- Western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla): These trees are a great choice for streamside plantings and can help stabilize streambanks, protect aquatic environments and support wildlife.
- Big leaf lupine (Lupinus polyphyllus): Lupine is also a great species to help stabilize banks and prevent erosion.
- Oregon iris (Iris tenax): These are excellent pollinator plants for yards with partial shade.
- Douglas aster (Symphyotrichum subspicatum): This is a low maintenance plant with a late summer bloom.
- Oregon sunshine (Eriophyllum lanatum): These vibrant flowers are known for attracting butterflies and are drought tolerant.
- Western red cedar (Thuja plicata): These are great trees to plant in streamside or heavily shaded areas and they provide excellent wildlife support.
- Beaked hazelnut (Corylus cornuta): Hazelnut trees produce a tasty nut that can be enjoyed by both humans and wildlife.
- Oregon oak (Quercus garryana): This tree is a good deciduous tree option for adding wildlife shelter and food to your property.
- Western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla): These trees are another great way to protect streams and support our wildlife.
