Northwest Wildflowers

A collection of information about the native plants of North America — especially the wildflowers of Oregon, Washington, and northern California
Wildflower Update, Spring 2022: In the Columbia River Gorge, the Portland area, Puget Sound, the North and Central Oregon Coast, and Eastern Oregon, things have gotten off to a slow start thanks to colder-than-average spring weather. The southern Willamette Valley (around Eugene) seems to be about normal so far. Southern Oregon and Northern California, on the other hand, started blooming ahead of schedule, especially the vernally moist areas. Meanwhile, note that central and north-central Oregon are headed into their third year of severe drought, so temper your expectations in the Deschutes and John Day basins.
