Looking for a list of native plants (shrubs, flowers)

Asked August 18, 2019, 1:45 PM EDT

I live Ponderosa Pine forest (with some Juniper mixed in) just outside of Sisters. I'm looking to try to attract more pollinators to my garden by planting native wildflowers (and fruiting shrubs). Do you know of any guides that might help me select these? Thanks.

Thank you for your question. OSU has two publications that fit the bill:

https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/ec1623

https://extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/default/files/documents/1/anintroductiontoxeriscaping.pdf

And this Xerces Society guide has several resources specifically addressed to pollinator-attracting plants: https://xerces.org/pollinators-pacific-northwest-region/

Hope these are helpful. Good luck!
