When to Plant Native Plants on Oregon Coast?

Oregon has several different types of coastal topography. The wetlands and marshes which are dotted throughout the state should have native plants planted in the spring when the water temperatures begin to rise. Planting in the coastal forest should be done in early summer to allow the roots to establish during the summer. The beaches and dunes should have native plant started in late spring, making sure the plant can withstand the sandy soil and changing temperatures.
