Somehow I knew I had forgotten a letter and a few plants I would dearly love to obtain. Sequim Plants – where going Native feels good ...

I introduced Zauschneria and Penstemon pinifolius to this area back in the 80’s. Starting the Nursery over again I no longer have these plants and former customers have long past on, or have sold their properties. Should you have any of these plants I would be more than excited to trade for them!. There are many named cultivars both stemming from CA and AZ. material. Both of these lovely plants are Xeriscape material and with our ensuing droughts something to consider promoting. Gladiolus tristus shown as the featured image. Young plants being grown.

Penstemon pinifolius

Penstemon pinifolius

Penstemon pinifolius ‘Mersea Yellow’ is not exactly what I wanted but it looks interesting. The regular P. pinifolius compacta  is a lovely red. Depending upon the cultivar Small, bright yellow or RED, tubular flowers bloom from this hardy native cultivar from summer through fall. Excellent in rock gardens and gravelly soil. (Sold out) Penstemon-pinifolius

Working to build up stock.

Non Xeriscape plants I also grow would include rockery plants, alpines such as Primula species … P. auricula, Gentian etc. Other Perennials such as Alstroemaria, specie Iris or Pacific Coast Iris are items I would always TRADE FOR!

All plants can be picked up at my place given notice. Hope to see you soon. The Google Map..
