Editor's Notes

  1. This portion of the Streamside Gardening Workshop was prepared by Linda McMahan, Extension Horticulturist in Yamhill County. Please note that there are many more plant species in this presentation than can be presented in a typical 90 minute presentation. Please select the plants most appropriate to your area of Oregon and feel free to substitute other species you consider to be more appropriate or to use your own photographs. The OSU Landscape Plants ID site at http://oregonstate.edu/dept/ldplants is an excellent source of photos and information. For statewide distribution of species, check The Oregon Flora mapping functions at http://www.oregonflora.org/atlas.php
