Lost Coast Brewery Native Plant Garden
Horticulturalists and visitors have an opportunity to participate in educational activities in the Sun Valley Greenhouse relating to the propagation of the endangered Lilium Occidentale (Western Lily) in the Native Garden.
The Native Plant Garden emphasizes the Humboldt County Region but also includes plants in the greater geographic area from the Rogue River in Oregon to the north shore of San Francisco Bay and inland to a north-south line which runs from Vacaville through Williams, Redding, Yreka, Medford, and then follows the Rogue River to its mouth. To be considered a “native plant” for the Lost Coast Brewery Native Plant Garden’s purpose, a plant would have existed in the above referenced geographical area prior to October 12, 1492.
The Native Plant Garden provides visitors with striking examples of how native plants can be aesthetically integrated and used to conserve resources and cultiviate native habitat as well as to create a beautiful cultivated landscape. The resource-conserving benefits of using less water, fertilizer, pesticides, and maintenance as well as the overall positive impact on the environment will be emphasized in future native plant horticulture and landscape design classes as part of the HBGF Education Series.
