City of Eugene Native Plant Alternatives
(6 page PDF document) There are many beautiful native species that are readily available from local native plant nurseries. Below is a list of some of the more common species that are found in the southern Willamette Valley. While native species generally require less water and care than non-native species, this is only true when planted in the appropriate soil moisture and sunlight conditions. We have tried to include brief notes on habitat requirements to help you make your choices; however we encourage you to do further research to make sure the species you choose will thrive on your property. For other resources, such as a list of local native plant nurseries, other native plant lists and a great piece on native pollinators see the reference section at the end.
