The North Yakima Conservation District (northyakimaconservationdistrict.com) is promoting and providing a variety of native wildflowers to the public.  From urban to rural landscapes, these plants will offer many benefits to your property and natural resources no matter the location.

Conserving Water:  Because native plants are adapted to local environmental conditions, they require far less water, saving time, money, and perhaps the most valuable natural resource, water.  Many of the plants are drought resistant or drought tolerant.

Beauty:  Many native plants offer beautiful showy flowers, brilliant colors from the pale, thin greens of early spring, to vibrant yellows, violets, blues and reds throughout the growing season.

Wildlife:  In addition to providing vital habitat for birds, many other species of wildlife benefits as well. Native plants provide nectar for POLLINATORS including hummingbirds, native bees, butterflies, moths, and bats.

Most of these plants will require some supplemental irrigation in the dry Inland Northwest. The amount of water that you will need to apply will also depend on your climate, soil type, and sun exposure. It is affected by cultural practices, including how you water your plants, whether or not you use mulch, and where windbreaks such as fences, walls, and other vegetation, are located. All plants require regular watering until their roots are established

Whatever type of native garden you choose, mix in various heights, forms, colors, and textures. Choose wildflowers that bloom at different intervals as well as those with attractive foliage to ensure year-round interest.
