One-hit wonder? Pfft! Not even. Move along, you're not invited to this garden party. This is an exclusive event with a prestigious guest list—a veritable Who's Who of Pacific Northwest garden plants.
These star performers deliver hit after hit, season after season—they've been climbing the charts all summer and are sure bets to top the hit parade for a good while more.
How does one earn a place in this prestigious cast? There are many paths to stardom: colorful foliage, showy flowers, the ability to age gracefully over multiple seasons, by being a steady contributor to an ensemble cast, and others.
Every garden needs a few plants that can assume the center-stage role of prima donna—plants that possess the glamour and the glitz to pull it off—but the real stars also possess the substance and poise that is the hallmark of well-rounded players with staying power. They can play the show-off and are the life of the party when covered in showy flowers or at the pinnacle of their performance, but the show goes on even when the flowers fade.
Supporting roles are important too. The job of these players is to make everyone look good! They contribute structure and a framework for the story. They may perform practical functions while maintaining their composure and poise.
