Climate Adapted Plants for the PNW
with Paul Bonine, Owner, Xera Plants Inc.
The climate west of the Cascades is one of the very best places to garden in all of North America - our mild wet winters and warm dry summers allow us to succeed with plants from all over the world. Paul Bonine, co-owner of Xera Plants, will explain how a gardener can better understand climate to achieve a more interesting palette of plants and hopefully, a more diverse and satisfying experience.
Paul Bonine is co-owner of Xera Plants Inc., a wholesale as well as retail nursery in Portland, Oregon. Paul has been an avid Oregon gardener for more than 35 years. He loves weather and climate and how it interacts with gardening and thinks the weather/climate in Western Oregon is one of the best places in the world to garden. He loves almost any plant and is firmly convinced that every genus has its diamond in the rough.
The plants that he will be profiling in his presentation will, as much as possible, be available at the Xera Plants Shop, located at 1114 SE Clay St., Portland, OR (503)236.8563. Please visit www.xeraplants.com for in depth descriptions of each plant grown at Xera Plants.
