Gardening with Native Plants
The Native Gardening Awareness Program, which is a committee of the Emerald Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Oregon, has produced a set of three booklets about gardening with native plants:

     Native Herbaceous Plants in Our Gardens
     Native Shrubs in Our Gardens
     Native Trees in Our Gardens

The booklets cover plants locally native to the southern Willamette Valley and the specific gardening conditions encountered here. These online versions are provided in the hope that they will serve as a useful reference for home gardeners, as well as landscape architects and nursery retailers.

Printed (hard copy) versions of the guides are available from Down to Earth. You can also get printed copies through the mail by sending a check to PO Box 902, Eugene 97440-0902. Checks should be made out to 'Emerald Chapter NPSO' with 'NGAP Gardening Guides' in the memo line. Cost is $9.35 (which includes postage) for the set of three. A few minor post-publication updates to the booklets are available here.
