Native Plants in the Garden
It was such a nice sunny weekend that we decided to go on a little walk in the woods behind the house. I found that the walk was a great way to show Jason some of the plants I pre-ordered from the Snohomish County Conservation District plant sale.
During and after our walk we talked about the plants and the benefits of each. I like incorporating native plants into the landscape because they need little care when planted in the right place. Plus, I like feeding the wildlife. I even bought the deer a couple bushes to munch on that I’ll plant along the property line (away from our fenced yard).
The Conservation District no longer accepts pre-orders but their sale is this Saturday at the Monroe Fairgrounds if you want to check it out.
Here’s what I ordered:
- Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea)
- Bunchberry (Cornus canadensis)
- Pacific Rhododendron (Rhododendron macrophyllum)
- Evergreen Huckleberry (Vaccinium ovatum)
- Red Flowering Currant (Ribes sanguineum)
- Mock Orange (Philadelphus lewisii)
- Snowberry (Symphoricarpos albus)
- Maidenhair Fern (Adiantum pedatum)
- Deer Fern (Blechnum spicant)
- Sword Fern (Polystichum munitum)
- Red Osier Dogwood (Cornus stolonifera) – Bareroot
