Perennials at Portland Nursery
Perennials bring color to
your garden year after year.
We have a wonderful selection of perennials year round, but if you are looking for a specific perennial we will have the best selection when it is in bloom around town.
Sun loving perennials offer blooms, great foliage, or architectural structure for areas that have full blasting sun, just afternoon sun or sun morning to noon. Whether you have a container to fill or a landscape to decorate we will have a perennial to spice things up.
Whether you have morning sun, dappled shade, or full shade you can find a beautiful shade perennial to fit any type of shade in your garden. Perennials are the perfect partner to shrubs and trees in the shade to help the design flow and add color.
Ferns are one of the quintessential plants characterizing the Pacific Northwest. Whether you have a shady rock wall, moist depression or dark dry place under a tree there is a fern for that spot.
