KatEnns said:Thank you Deb, where ever did you get the Spirea douglasii from? I have seen it up near Revelstoke, and in the woods around Victoria and Vancouver, would love to grow it. Its fairly cold hardy, or possibly actually two disjunct subspecies, and interior one and a coastal.
Kat, these just grow wild for me. They seem to like wet feet and full sun, and sucker freely. The common name is hardhack, not sure why. I did see there is a white variety - Spirea betulifolia - that is also native, but I don't have that on my property. We quit running livestock several years ago, which has resulted in a lot more native plants establishing themselves.

and, considering other plants for the garden I've noted by others' entries.
