Spring is in full bloom and there are so many plants to choose from! It’s almost impossible to limit it to eight of our favorites, so we settled on ten (what will we do in May??) These plants epitomize spring, offering the best of spring blooms and fresh new foliage.
Welcome to garden designer and guest blogger Karen Hugg, who shares her favorite trees and shrubs for small spaces!
What should you plant if you have a 15-foot by 20-foot yard? If you have only a patio with a brief border around it? There are many dwarf and narrow versions of trees and shrubs that homeowners can use to create an interesting, colorful garden. Here are some of my favorites.
For a tough spot, sometimes you just need a tough but easy-going plant. But that doesn't mean you have to settle for unattractive or boring. Try these beautiful, high-performing plants for year-round interest and worry-free care. They are some of my personal favorites, put to the test in my Northwest garden.
Greetings from the depths of winter. January in Puget Sound country. Dark in the morning. Dark in the afternoon. And it's mostly dreary in between. As a saving grace, our relatively moderate winter temperatures offer a hospitable climate for a dazzling array of winter blooming shrubs. And there is no better winter bloomingshrub for greater Pugetopolis than Mahonia x media 'Charity'.
