Our shrub selections are based on seasonal attributes in the landscape so they are available in a range of mature sizes, foliage coloration, and bloom times and work well as hedges and screens, as a backdrop for a garden, as stand alone plantings in the landscape, and to add year-round seasonal color. Shrubs provide privacy and a sense of enclosure as we avoid views and noises from intrusive surroundings by creating spaces to relax and enjoy being outdoors. While many of the plants we offer are natives, we also include shrubs and perennials that are adapted to our climate and soils. Since we're all looking for plants that are easy to grow so we can spend more time enjoying them and less time maintaining them, we encourage gardeners to consider providing a diverse plant community of shrubs, perennials, and all-season annuals that provide a range of food and shelter for beneficial insects and birds to keep pests in check. 


 



Our perennial selections are based on providing color through the changing seasons. Most perennials have a "bloom time", either spring, summer, or fall so it's important to select varieties that have differing bloom times. Perennials also have different heights and spreading habits, so be sure to select the right perennial for the garden space you are developing. Our Perennials Availability List Page is further defined by perennials that: Attract Pollenators, are Deer-resistant, are best For Shade, serve as Groundcovers, or are Xeric/Water-wise. And again, we encourage gardeners to consider providing a diverse plant community of shrubs, perennials, and all-season annuals that provide a range of food and shelter for beneficial insects and birds to keep pests in check. 


 

'Oregon Spring' slicer 'Cherokee Purple' heirloom 'Sweet Million' cherry
Our tomato plants are grown from seed here at Colorscapes and include: Roma (indeterminate vine), 'Oregon Spring' (determinate, parthenocarpic), 'Cherokee Purple' (indeterminate vine, heirloom), and 'Sweet Million' (indeterminate vine, cherry) @ $2.00 each. We grow our tomato plants in large containers on the deck. The 'Oregon Spring' slicers are easy since, as determinate vines, they do not require large "cages" and parthenocarpic plants do not require pollination to set fruit.


Our Long Term Goals Continue to Be:

To educate customers so they can be successful, confident gardeners.
To provide healthy plants that are grown in and for this area.
