If you live in the Pacific Northwest,
and you want your landscape to look like this, require minimal irrigation and attract wildlife....
Then you probably have shopped at a place like 'Bosky Dell Natives'.
Nestled between the hills of West Linn and the Tualatin River, this native plant nursery has it all!
We find ourselves here today, to select plants for a client, who is striving to make her urban Portland landscape a sanctuary for birds.
She has received the Audubon Society's gold standard, in the Backyard Habitat Certification Program.
Even in the winter, this nursery is full of whimsy and wildlife.
We successfully found and purchased an Oregon Native Azalea, Iris Tenax and some Evergreen Huckleberries.
4 Paws Up for 'Going Native'!

We agree - going native is the way to go. By the way, my mom worked for National Audubon Society for a couple of years right after college. They are a great organization.ReplyDelete
Your pal, Pip
We have the Theodore Payne Nursery here in L.A. I wish you all could help us with some So. Cal. native plants ;-)ReplyDelete

Evergreen huckleberries! That's worth a photo, just for fun....ReplyDelete
Native plantings make the landscape so rich and inviting! What a cool place. We have special nursery's here to that specialize in xeric native plants...because water is such an issue...we have nearly converted all of the front yard to a xeriscape.ReplyDelete
We have an Australian Native Garden....the plants don't need much water. It's supposed to attract birds, but we chase them away...BOL!ReplyDelete
XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra, Bella & roxy
Love the huckleberries. I was so excited over the summer to find not only the red huckleberries but the blue ones as well when we climbed Mt. Hebo. In fact, I brought some home and froze them. I'm thinking pancakes in the dead of winter.ReplyDelete
Hehehe, mum tries to have a garden, any kind of garden, but we chase the plants away hahahahahaha. Sorry, but sometimes we amuse ourselves. No worries, and love, Stella and RoryReplyDelete
I bet the plants are really slowing down now because of the cold Wyatt. Hey - my mum has FINALLY posted the PSH - I thought we weren't gonna make it!! Whew!ReplyDelete

I love it, Wyatt! We "go native" but with minimal work. This year, I bought a boatload of native wildflower seeds which I planted before the first big snow. I have high hopes that we'll add more color to our landscape with those seeds!ReplyDelete
