Hey, congrats on the MIL approval. Just noticed on your last post that you asked about plants in the Pacific Northwest. I'm in Seattle myself, and just updating my garden now, so it's on the mind. I really like plants with visual interest throughout the year, so evergreens are something I like to include for structure throughout the garden. Sarcacoca and pieres japonica are great options- fairly small evergreen shrubs. The Sarcacoca has small white winter flowers with lovely fragrance and beautiful berries. There are a bunch of varieties of japonica, many with interesting flowers, seed and foliage. Viburnum does super well in my yard too. Beauty berry is another awesome option- it gets bunches of purple berries along the stems that remain all winter long. Clearly I've been craving more winter interest plants. Anyways, you might want to check out Rosso nursery, down on airport way. They just moved and everything is half off right now, so it's a pretty cheap way to get some nice plants. FYI, their new location looks sketchy as fuck, and you'll want to call ahead to make sure they're actually there- apparently they'll just leave if it's been a slow day.
The MIL Seal of Approval (Phew!)
