Propagation Protocols for Pacific Northwest Plants

Last Updated 05/16/19

Plant Propagation Protocols

Text Box: These plant propagation protocols have been produced by students in ESRM 412 (Native Plant Production) at the University of Washington from 2003 to present.  They are provided as a service to the restoration and propagation community; please be aware that quality and content vary.  
Note: Students are working on new protocols during the Spring 2019 quarter.  Protocols that are being revised are highlighted in yellow.  New protocols that are being prepared are highlighted in red.
Most species names are links that lead to protocols.  All species are listed in the USDA Plants database as native to the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, British Columbia).  Species are organized in tables based on plant life forms:
Shrubs and vines (genera from A-L and M-Z)
Forbs (genera from A-Ch, Ci-Gd, Ge-M, N-R, and S-Z)
Graminoids (grasses, sedges, etc.)
Ferns (ferns, lycopods, etc.)
