Native Plants

Native Plant Resources

The Nursery’s below have been excellent partners for us.  Many times projects are looking for live plants instead of seed, or native seed just isn’t available.  Please take a look and search out a excellent native nursery for your plant needs.  Below is just a few that Sunmark Seeds and Sunmark Environmental works with.

Native plants are drought- and disease-resistant so they require less water and do not need pesticides, chemicals or fertilizers to thrive. When combined with natural gardening techniques like composting, planting natives helps keep gardens, yards, rivers and streams healthy and safe for families, pets and wildlife.

Native plants are “born and raised” in the local environment; they have grown up together with native wildlife and insects. So including native plants in your project, back yard or landscaping, provides the best food and shelter for the native species that call the Pacific Northwest home. Remember, native plants attract native bugs, and native bugs attract native birds and wildlife.

Benefits of native plants and natural gardening
