Plants can also serve as focal points. We were very pleased that Fine Gardening Magazine asked us to choose our favorite focal point plants for the Pacific Northwest and write an article about their qualities.

This is a magazine designed for garden lovers so we encourage you to pick up a copy now on sale.
