Zoo Plant Life

The Zoo is a great place to see animals – but it’s also perfect for seeing a diverse array of plants. From native Northwest to spiky succulents, humming pollinator gardens and exotic flowers, our plant life is stunning – plus it recreates habitats for our animals, and even provides them with leafy enrichment.

From Northwest to Carnivorous
