The Pacific Northwest Perennial Garden

A perennial border is somewhat of a heavy maintenance project. When I started this project, the soil condition was very poor. It consisted of heavy clays and traditional tractor squish em hardpan. Even today when it rains cats and dogs (never in the PNW) the water just runs off to bog garden. To solve the hardpan problem, I amended 40 yards of compost and raised the bed to an average soil height of 15 inches. The rest of the garden is composed of native soil. One the main lessons I have learned with perennials is "what not to buy" . I hate plants which have runner roots and take over my border. These type of plants should have a special marker, "INVASIVE".

This is the garden in early spring (March).
