My Favorite Shrub

Recently we were asked 'What is your favorite shrub?' and had to come up with an answer on the spot. This question opened the floodgates, and out poured not one favorite, but a whole handful of contenders. We realized that they were all shrubs native to this area or selections of natives. We may be biased in that natives are much of what we grow, and there certainly are many spectacular non-natives and cultivars, but for us, nothing compares to the wonder of a healthy plant in its natural state.
So, we would like to share with you our experiences with our favorite shrubs, and hope you come to love our 'old friends' as much as we do.
