Native Plants for Native Pollinators

Wondering what native plants to grow in larger areas (not home gardens), such as farm hedgerows, community parks, restoration areas, roadsides, and other habitats where native plants would be appropriate? All of these support bumble bees, important native pollinators, and are well adapted to lowland Whatcom County locations.

Native Plant Lists for Selected Whatcom County Locations

Over many years WNPS members have been recording the plants they’ve found in parks, along trails, and in other locations around the state. Lists for every county in Washington are available on the Washington Native Plant Society state-wide website.

NOTE: Due to a ransomware attack, the lists are currently not available. They’ll be back, but we don’t know just when.
