You'll find Pistils Nursery tucked into a historic building on a busy stretch of the Mississippi Avenue shopping district. This plant-lovers dreamscape is one of our very favorite places to shop for plants, indoors or out. The Pistils team carefully curates a selection of specialty plants for Pacific Northwest ornamental and vegetable gardens, but they also love to enliven interior spaces with plants. They call it #InteriorRewilding and their Instagram feed is the perfect antidote to a rainy Portland winter day.
The mercantile is filled with an unusual assortment of houseplants. Kokedama string gardens--plants with their roots bound in a ball of moss--hang from the ceiling, air plants dot the walls, trays of succulents and cacti fill shelves and the mounted staghorn ferns hanging about the shop look like living works of art.
Like Perch, Pistils will be participating in Little Boxes 2017--Portland's best holiday shopping event! We stopped by and talked with one of their resident plant experts, Chris, to find out what they are excited about for the holidays.
