Plant Lists of Washington Wildflowers

Wildflower bloom on Steptoe Butte in eastern Whitman County, Washington.

Wildflower bloom on Steptoe Butte in eastern Whitman County, Washington.............June 22, 2009.

The following represent plant lists for selected natural areas in Washington. Some of the lists include plants from previous NPSO or WNPS field trips or may be based on voucher specimen data obtained from the Consortium of Pacific Northwest Herbaria or lists provided by the Washington Native Plant Society. The remainder of the plants in each list have been seen and confirmed by the webmaster, Paul Slichter. The lists are generally incomplete at this point and are in PDF format. Some rare plants may have been omitted from the lists for their protection. Plants with parentheses around a variety or subspecies name, like (v. gracilis?) have been identified to species but the variety or subspecies ID is still uncertain. A question mark after the species name in parentheses, like Potentilla (gracilis?) indicates the genus is certain, but species ID is not. Question marks after the common name or whole scientific name indicate that the identification is uncertain, or it is a plant others have seen but I haven't verified its prescence yet.

Additions or corrections can be e-mailed to the webmaster at the address below (Data concerning fungi, grasses, lichens, mosses, rushes and sedges are especially welcomed for each site.). Lists may be updated several times through the 2011 season so check back days before your anticipated trip. You are free to use these plant lists (including print them out for a field trip) both for personal hike or a group field trip (say one used for a hike sponsored by the Friends of the Columbia Gorge, Native Plant Society of Oregon, or Washington Native Plant Society). For other uses of the list, please contact the webmaster at the E-mail address below.
