Choosing Trees & Shrubs for Your Washington Landscape

Nature Hills Nursery is where to shop for Washington State plants and gardening supplies to make your landscape project a success. The state has a highly diverse climate befitting the Pacific Northwest, ranging from the warm and humid environment in South Puget Sound to the cool, dry air of the Northeast region. Our professionals will help you find the best State of Washington trees and shrubs for growers in Spokane, Olympia, the Coulee Corridor and anywhere else in the Evergreen State.


This page has horticulturist recommendations sorted into categories for easy searching. We of course offer plenty of Evergreen Trees — but you’ll also find plenty of Flowering Trees, Fruit Trees, Privacy Shrubs and other flora. After checking the USDA Zone rating to make sure it matches the official Plant Hardiness Map, review the Highlight Facts for each variety. This is where we list the mature size, sun exposure requirements, ideal soil conditions and other vital information. Our planting pros carefully research this data and even do testing when necessary so you can be confident in your purchase.


This is just one of many educational Washington State planting resources we provide. There’s also the Garden Blog and the Plant Care Library, both of which are filled with useful videos and articles. We also work with Plant Sentry™ to guarantee that growers are protected against invasive pests and diseases. Shop online 24/7 or call us to place an order.
