Happy New Year! It is time again for our Annual Native Plant Sale. Visit our website for a complete list of plants and descriptions. Fill out your order form (online or hard copy) and mark your calendar for Saturday, March 11. Now is the time to think about what to plant this spring!

This year we are offering 16 species of evergreen and deciduous trees, shrubs and perennials including favorites like Red Flowering Currant, Nootka Rose, and Blue Elderberry. Some species have been selected particularly for being somewhat drought tolerant. Native plants are beautiful in the garden and landscape, are beneficial for wildlife, and improve habitat and plant diversity. Once established, native plants tend to require less maintenance and fertilizers than other landscape plants.

Pick up your pre-ordered plants on March 11 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. at the following locations:

• Lopez Island Sunset Builders

• Orcas Island Grange

• San Juan Island County Fairgrounds

Limited quantities of miscellaneous plants will be for sale at the San Juan Island location.

Remember, plant quantities are limited, so order today! The deadline for orders is March 1st.

For more information and the entire list of plants, order online, or print an order form, visit or call WSU Extension at 378-4414.
