The Pacific Northwest is popular for having a vast array of plants which grow all season. In fact, a lot of the plants which grow at specific seasons in most parts of the world such as Carnations and Iceland Poppies, will not only thrive all year round in the Pacific Northwest but do so graciously the following year. Such kinds of plants usually have certain characteristics which make them drought tolerant and able to survive the little to no rain of summer, as well as cope with the constant rainfall during winter.
