Petula’s Test Garden 2015

Welcome to our Garden!

This winter Petula  jumped at the opportunity to design the plantings at Hazel Miller Plaza located in the seaside town of Edmonds, WA. Our goal was to fill the garden with beauty, but also spark imaginations by testing renegade choices not usually seen in city plantings.  We used succulents, agaves, drought tolerant shrubs, tropicals–even citrus–combined with Northwest perennials. The result is a beautiful, evolving mix that is low maintenance and lasts longer than your standard annual flower planting.
