The Perfect Plants For Your Washington State Garden

Sometimes called “The Evergreen State”, Washington is lush and rich with natural resources.    Mountains, coastal areas, rivers and temperate rain forests enhance this state and add to its natural beauty, with large tracts of conifer forests contributing to its also being known as “The Green Tree State”.  With such a stellar reputation as a natural treasure, it’s easy to see how Washingtonians would be serious gardening aficionados.  With its diverse geography and gardening conditions, Washington natives understand the need for a nursery that can provide the types of products and services unique to their needs—and Nature Hills Nursery certainly fits the bill.

Choosing A Tree For Your Washington State Home

If visiting Mt. Rainier or Olympic National Park you’re sure to see an abundance of Washington’s state tree which is the Western Hemlock.  However, our Washington guests most often choose the Lavender Twist Weeping Redbud (for its amazing spring/fall color), the Royal Empress Tree (a gorgeous tree with incredible attributes), and the Weeping Willow (with its graceful, ground-sweeping branches).  These trees, and more, are available at Nature Hills Nursery for our Washington guest’s pleasure.

Selecting Washington State Shrubs

Washington is the top apple, cherry and pear-producing state, so Washingtonians certainly value fruit-bearing plants and enjoy watching them grow in their own backyards.  A good example of a natural, fruit-producing plant that is also beloved by our Washington guests is the Elderberry.  If hiking in some of the North Cascades regions, you’re sure to see some Elderberry Shrubs, which are a favorite Nature Hills Nursery choice among our Washington guests.  Black Beauty Elderberry provides a spring floral display, and berries that are delicious for humans and wildlife alike.  Likewise, Washingtonians often choose the Common Purple Lilac and Dark Knight Bluebeard, exceptional ornamental shrubs with vivid displays.

Popular Washington State Perennials

“The Chinook State” has a lot to offer in floral majesty due to its vast expanse of natural areas and the wildflowers that frequent them.  In fact, Mount St. Helen’s hillsides are covered with them in spring!  Washingtonians have come to expect high standards when choosing their perennials, and Nature hills Nursery certainly meets those needs.  With such popular choices as Lavender, Hostas and a variety or ornamental greases, it’s easy to see why Washingtonians turn to Nature Hills Nursery again and again for their gardening needs.
