Today is Christmas day and I thought I’d share with you a few photos of some of my favorite native plants of the Northwest. All of the plants featured here are evergreen shrubs or trees. All of them produce berries that attract birds to your garden. All the fruits are edible by us humans too and are quite tasty.
David and I went out for a walk on Christmas eve and took these photos to share with you. We walked along the shores of Hood Canal on the Kitsap Peninsula up in Washington State. Winters are mild here and there is no snow on the ground. Plants that keep their leaves all winter are especially valued in the landscape in the Northwest.
