UCD’s 2017 Native Plant Sale is here! Our native plant sale is one way UCD encourages the restoration of natural habitats and promotes native species. We hope it makes a convenient, low-cost way for property owners in Skamania and western Klickitat Counties to obtain native trees and shrubs. Last year, UCD’s Native Plant Sale helped to get nearly 20,000 native plants in the ground!
UCD’s plant sale includes a variety of species for all your planting needs. We have beautiful flowering shrubs that will attract beneficial insects to your garden; fire- and drought-resistant species; large trees that provide shade year round to your home or creek; and hardwoods to bring vibrant colors each fall. Planting native trees and shrubs serves a number of purposes including reforestation, erosion control, improving bird and wildlife habitat, visual buffers, and stream enhancement – all while adding beauty and color to the landscape.
UCD is currently accepting online orders for native conifer, hardwood and shrub seedlings and will do so until February 28, 2017. All orders will be available for pick-up on Saturday, March 18, 2017 in White Salmon.
Plants are ordered in bundles of ten plants of the same species, with a minimum online order of $45 (at least 3 bundles). If you’d like to shop for smaller quantities, or mix-and-match species within a bundle, please plan to come to our distribution event on Saturday, March 18, 2017. We’ll have single seedlings in a variety of species available for sale, and the opportunity to create your own mixed bundle tailored specifically for your site.
And as in past years, large-quantity discounts are available for all of our conifer species. Don’t forget to check out our native seed mixes! We offer two seed mixes —a native meadow grasses and a mix of pollinator-friendly grass and flower species— both are available in several quantities.
Browse our online Native Plant Sale shop for plant photos and full descriptions, or search by site characteristics such as sun and soil moisture. Or, call or come by the UCD office and talk to someone on staff about the best plant for your location and goals.
