Encompassing well over an acre, the Lost Coast Brewery Native Plant Garden (NPG) is a central educational and display component of the Humboldt Botanical Garden. The NPG includes plants from the greater California Floristic Province, emphasizing plants native to northwest California and southwest Oregon. Selecting plants from these regions allows us to provide the visitor with an understanding of the remarkable diversity of California’s native flora. In doing so, we are able to showcase a palette of particularly interesting California and southern Oregon native plants which perform well in our sometimes challenging north coast climate and soil conditions.
The changing seasons make it especially worthwhile to visit the Garden throughout the year. For a current seasonal description of the Lost Coast Brewery NPG, see Spring 2016 in the Lost Coast Brewery Native Plant Garden by Mark Moore, Volunteer Curator of the LCBNPG.
