Northwest Wildflowers

A collection of information about the native plants of North America — especially the wildflowers of Oregon, Washington, and northern California

March 2024: December was mild and wet, and it looked like we might have a very early wildflower season in the Columbia River Gorge, but the mid-January cold snap put an end to those thoughts. February was chilly too, and things are now officially "running a little late" in both the Western and Eastern Gorge.

In southwestern Oregon, things seem to be about on their usual schedule.
