I may have mentioned just how many plants they've got over at the Cascadia nursery...This
is about half of what they've got outside. It's a nice, wide, scape of plants out
These are willow trees, believe it or not. The method they use to cultivate these
plants is rather interesting; They take cuttings from established trees, and stuff
them into really wet dirt or a bucket of water. The willows take root and take off
all by themselves!
These are the willows once they've been growing for a while. These pots are probably
pretty close to planting time.
These are a whole bunch of under-water plants...as you can see, they're got
a lot of them over at the nursery.
This is one common species of grass found in native wetlands in the Pacific Northwest.
It does have a better name than simply "grass," but I couldn't zoom in
with the camera close enough to catch the plant tag.
These are some pots of dogwood, another tree which likes to have its feet wet. Dogwoods
however need a great deal of oxygen near their roots, and so do best when planted
near running water.
