Flowers are blooming all around Portland. They are amazing and easy to grow in the NW. Sometimes it can be overwhelming when deciding which variety to plant. I decided to do my research before shopping this year.
I spent some time on the internet and stumbled across this website http://www.portlandnursery.com/tips/tips_july.shtml where I found a wealth of good information. There are some great videos too. This one on hydrangeas is fun to watch
