I’m moving in to a new place and I want to plant some flowers but I dont really have a green thumb so I was wondering what flowers grow best in washington state so that I wont have to give them any special treatment. So what type of flowers will grow best? And should I mix potting soil with the natural ground soil?
I live in Oregon Zone 6. Call your local garden center to find out what zone your in and visit your local garden center and they will answer which plants in their selection will be best for your area.
I have tulips, Trumpet vines all sorts of winter blooming plants such Daphne and bulbs. Lots of shrubs nd love mini maple tress there are many varieties. Evergreens and deciduous trees like Crabbe apple, plum. Ash and white Birch and many more. None require special treatment other than good soil drainage, and watering during dry periods. Rhododendrons and Azaleas are the most popular plan tin the Northwest. We are lucky to live in this are we can grow more plants than most other areas. Lavender and wisteria are super here. http://www.rhodyman.net/rarhodyho.html
