Killing plants so you don't have to

Recommended top plants for Northwest homes




Croton Plant ( Thanks twoblueday for the photo )

The Columbian has an article on recommended house plants for Northwest homes. They recommend looking at the room colors and choosing plants to emphasize the room colors.

Because light is low in the northwest, like most of the northern part of the country, they recommend some low light loving plants. These plants have very colorful flowers or foliage.
