A wide array of wildflowers and specialized flower habitats is to be found in the Pacific Northwest, with microclimates ranging from foggy rainforests to wind-swept mountains, to arid deserts, shifting sand dunes, deep rugged canyons and gorges.

River and ocean moisture, mountain snows and moderate summer sunlight, help wildflowers of the Pacific Northwest bloom in a biodiversity of world renown. Pretty and useful, such flowering plants are major contributors to this living world that we inhabit.
