I’m researching Seattle, Washington to build a plant palette for it, for my plant ID class.
Anyone have any tips or resources to point me to?
I am making a list of the best trees, shrubs, groundcovers, and perennials to use in the area. If you are a landscape architect or designer, and have had practical experience with plants in the area, or have any insights, tell me your favorite and least favorite plants in the region, so I can do further background research about them!
I’m a total noob, so any advice or suggested resources would be useful even if you consider it basic. :)
I am going to identify my sources, and do some research about the ecology of the area, for starters.

I went to a really cool lecture last night about light pollution and the impacts of misusing artificial light in our cities! It was inspiring and very illuminating, if you will pardon the pun. I want to address these issues in my park planning project, so I’m definitely going to be doing some personal research about how to apply intelligent lighting in my planning process.
