Collection: Beat the Heat

Filling a Pacific Northwest garden with color and greenery in May is easy. The hard part is finding the right plants to keep it looking lush in hot, crispy August - especially as we're settling into the "new normal" of 90+ degree days in this climate-changed world! Fret-not, we've got this! Here's some of our faves for creating a garden that can beat the heat, conserve water, support the birds and the bees we love so much - through the dog days of summer.
