Plants for Spring Interest
Evergreen shrubs provide year-round structure in your garden beds and planters - and, properly chosen, can provide lively seasonal color and fragrance as well. Yedda Hawthorn has long been loved for its glossy evergreen foliage and spring display of sweetly-scented white or pale pink flowers; the variety 'Southern Moon', above left, is distinguished by its disease resistance, compact handsome form, and profuse blooming.
Choisya ternata, called Mexican Orange for its swooningly-perfumed pure white blossoms, is another strong performer in Northwest gardens. Spruce up your beds with 'Sundance,' above right, noted for as much for its bright foliage color as for its flowers’ fragrance.
These evergreens join a gorgeous assortment of magnolias, enkianthus, and other spring bloomers bursting to put on a display in your garden now!
