Plants that grow in the mild Pacific Northwest

We are a small specialist nursery, located in Brentwood Bay on Vancouver Island's Saanich Peninsula. We grow mainly perennials and roses. We propagate and grow perennials from seed and divisions from the gardens of ourselves and friends, and from across the world.

We are not a mail order nursery and we do not ship plants.

The main objective of this site is to help and educate anyone who is interested in plants, especially those plants that will grow in the Pacific Northwest in our wonderfull and exciting climate that ranges from zones 7 to 9 (in a good year). Every now and then we get a nasty snap like the night in November 2006 when everything was so wet and drainage nonexistent and then it suddenly froze - a definite zone 9 killer.

Supply is sometimes limited as some plants are very slow to propagate, especially those that can be done only by division. Because of this, we have many varieties in quantities too small to list. If there is a particular plant you are looking for, do not hesitate to ask. We may have it.

We also carry some shrubs and trees, again trying for the not so common ones.

A very large selection of roses is available, mainly Old Roses, English roses, climbers, and modern shrubs. Please feel free to print the lists from this web site.
