Bonehead's Plant List

A note from Bonehead
I am located in north Snohomish County, Washington, Zone 8b. I am happy to do trades/sharing with local folks, but not so much into mail trades. Feel free to tree-mail me with requests and we can arrange an exchange. Note to self: The dates are ranges, not necessarily inclusive on both ends.

Thumb Plant Status Notes Events
Image Grand Fir (Abies grandis)
Have
Tree
Native
1990 side forest. Initially planted for Xmas trees, let them go and they have now evolved into an effective visual screen between us and Vanessa. 2015 trimmed the dead lower branches which opened it up, and plan to also cut out the dead trees. 2016 native ferns, salmonberry, snowberry, elderberry, and vine maples are noticeably colonizing. 2017, 5 pots planted along front creek by SCCD.

Image Bear's Breeches (Acanthus mollis)
Have
Perennial
Medicinal
Originally in the hosta bed, where it never bloomed, then moved to porch bed where it also never bloomed. 2014 moved to front bed, still no bloom. Give this a slug ring. Compressed leaves will bring down swellings. Roots ooze a slime useful in a compress for burns, dislocation, and gout. Watch for slugs.

Tree
2012 side forest. Serious scratch-n-dent, but making a come-back. 2016 looks like Marla mowed it over, but one side branch is doing well and regained its color. 2017 doing well, full on color. Charlie
