Now, I am usually pretty good at plant names - especially annuals - but since this is a perennial, I am a little bit stumped. I have never seen this kind of plant before. It's in my garden, was here when we bought the house - but the garden was such a mess last fall, that I must not have noticed it. This spring I dug out that garden entirely, and we are still in the process of re-edging it and fixing it up. I saved this plant because it looked like mini palm trees. Does anyone know what it is?
Gardening Adventures from the North started in March 2008 as an attempt to track and share my gardening experiences in Northern BC. My garden is a zone 3b, although more and more I am seeing plants hardy to zones 4 or 5 overwinter here. I am interested in sustainable gardening practices, shade gardening, seed starting and plant propagation (of which I have had little success). Hopefully as this blog evolves it will include our interior and exterior home renovations, and my experiences canning and preserving my garden delicacies.
