Nothing But Northwest Native Plants

We used to sell Northwest native perennials, shrubs and trees, but our small retail nursery is now phased out. However, there are some other resources and groups listed below. I really need to fix up this boring website!

The Ultimate Reference Book for native plant lovers, landscape designers, restoration ecologists and gardeners!!!!

Click the link for more: Encyclopedia of Northwest Native Plants for Gardens and Landscapes by Kathleen A. (Kali) Robson, Alice Richter and Marianne Filbert (with additional photos by Dr. Sally Simmons). Visit Timber Press and browse many other fine books for plant lovers!

Robson Botanical Consultants

Interested in a seminar / PowerPoint show on native plants for different landscape situations? Mine are excellent (if I do say so!), though not free. Here's some seminar information for any group wanting to know more.

I am moving my Continuing Education Hour seminars to an online format, with the approval of the Oregon Landscape Contractors Board Each one hour seminar is worth one credit hour of ontinuing education from the Oregon State Landscape Contractors Board. Email me or visit the seminar link above for more info.

This seminar is ready to go:

NW Native Plants for Fruit and Seed-eating Birds (for landscapes west of the Cascades)

Title slide

I've been working on another project, one that will continue for some time, so more seminars will be edited for continuing ed credit over time.

I finally joined Facebook!

If you love native plants, here are some places I like to visit

Oregon Flora Project

University of Washington Herbarium

PNW Consortium of Herbaria

Spring Plant Sales

Although we're out of the nursery business, here are some links to great plant organizations. Visit them for upcoming events and other information.

The Plant Sale & Garden Art now known as Hortlandia is hosted by Hardy Plant Society of Oregon and takes place at the Portland EXPO Center around the second weekend in April. They sometimes have a fall sale as well.

The Leach Garden Friends Spring Plant Sale hosted by Leach Botanical Garden takes place around the third Saturday in April at Floyd Light Middle School, located at 10800 SE Washington St. in Portland (just east of I-205 and Mall 205).

The Spring Home & Garden Idea Fair sponsored by the Specialty Nursery Association of Clark County and Clark Public Utilities usually happens at the Clark County Event Center (a.k.a. Fairgrounds) on the last full weekend (Friday-Sunday) in April.

The Clackamas County Master Gardeners host their Spring Plant Fair on the first full weekend in May at the Clackamas County Fairgrounds in Canby, OR. Contact the Master Gardeners for more info. (Sorry, I don't have the link.)

The Clark County Master Gardeners usually have their Plant Sale in mid May (Mother's Day weekend) at the 78th Street Heritage Farm at 1919 NE 78th St. in Vancouver (Hazel Dell), WA. Contact the Master Gardeners for more info. (Sorry, I don't have the link.)

For other native plant resources try your local Soil and Water Conservation District (OR) or Conservation District (WA) - every county has at least one, and all have a native plant sale in early spring (but you may have to order plants the previous fall). Some of the larger districts may have plants available for a longer period.

Also try Wild Ginger Farm (near Portland, OR), Humble Roots (in the Columbia River Gorge), Naturescaping (in the Vancouver, WA area), Livingscape (in Portland, OR) or Watershed GardenWorks (north of Vancouver, WA in Longview).
