Left fir > expanding the understory
by Rainbow Bobbins
And filled the area with heavy clay soil from the veggie garden (which was replaced with a 4-way mix soil delivery from Mt. Scott Fuel). There is a lot of dirt getting moved around the yard right now. Wha-la! Below = excuse to buy more plants.
And planted an Oregon Grape that I picked up a Portland Nursery a few weeks ago – Mahonia aquifolium – which I’m hoping will be a backdrop to the rose campion and eventually block the view of the compost bins.
I have my eye on a fern I am thinking of transplanting to this area and will be adding epimedium, hostas…maybe a hardy fushia. I am still learning what will grow under these fir trees. Any suggestions? Would it be a bad idea to plant Bishop’s Weed?
