Characteristics such as drought tolerance, low water requirements, low maintenance, grows in poor soil, long summer blooms, great for cut flowers, and soothing garden fragrance put them on the list for the best garden plants.

Phenomenal Lavender Plants

Hardy as far north as zone 4, the Phenomenal Lavender has proven to be cold hardy and experiences little winter die back. The Phenomenal Lavender is mounded shaped and shown to resist root rot and powdery mildews.

The Pink Perfume Lavender is smaller growing lavender that is just right for small yards. This drought tolerant plant produces rosy pink flowers from May through September that are sure to attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden.

The small growing Blue River Lavender is perfect for growing in containers that can be placed throughout your garden or patio for splashes of dark purple during the summer season.

Plant a Summer Flowering Rose of Sharon Shrub Hedge

January 27th, 2014

For summer flowering, plant a Rose of Sharon shrub hedge. Hardy in zones 5 through 9, Hibiscus syriacus shrubs perform at their best as full sun shrubs and planted in well drained soil. These flowering shrubs provide long lasting blooms from mid summer to frost. Though they will grow in partially sunny to lightly shaded areas, their blooming may be limited. Rose of Sharon or hibiscus syriacus, which is a deciduous shrub also known as Hardy Hibiscus and Althea.

Although Rose of Sharon bushes will lose their leaves in winter, they still make beautiful flowering privacy hedges in areas for summer use such as planting around swimming pools. Their unusually large blooms attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees from mid summer until frost. As these hibiscus bloom much later than most other plants, they are, also, later to leaf out. Expect rose of sharon to leaf out in late spring to early summer.

Butterfly Bushes Make Welcoming Habitats for Butterflies and Hummingbirds

June 30th, 2012

Growing butterfly bushes is a popular hobby for many Americans? The enchanting colors of buddleia flowers, the bracing fragrance of the leaves, the hypnotic effect of the stems swaying back and forth, the sight of the trees rattling their leaves when touched by the gentle breeze, and of course, the green background of the landscape – all contribute to the uniqueness of a scenic butterfly garden. Hey wait a minute; is something missing? Yes, the butterflies!

Who doesn’t like to see a rabble of butterflies fluttering in the garden? Watching those colorful butterflies flit from one plant to another and circling in rabbles can be a great stress-relieving site for anyone. If your garden is without the butterflies then you might consider making it colorfully attractive by planting butterfly bushes.

Also referred to as summer lilac or buddleia, butterfly bushes are attractive flowering shrubs that can embellish the look of any garden. They grow fast, filling the neighboring space in quick time. And they flourish well in any type of well-drained soil; regardless of it is gravel, clay or sandy type. The butterfly bushes are flowering plants that provide a welcoming habitat for the butterflies and hummingbirds. Butterflies and bees love to feed on the nectar-rich flowers. One good thing about the butterfly bushes is that they don’t drop dead flowers.

Butterfly Bush Planting Tips

There are different butterfly bushes that thrive well in different climatic conditions. They generally spread quickly; hence should be planted at a distance of at least 6 feet away from each other, depending on the specific variety. The butterfly bushes grow at heights ranging from 5 to 15 feet, although some of the newer hybrids are small growing at 3 feet. Typically, they need at least six hours of direct exposure to sunlight everyday and should be watered regularly.

Maintenance and Variety

Butterfly bushes require regular trimming as they can grow fast in quick time. For best growth results, constant pruning of the dead petals should be done; this will make them bloom longer and grow denser. The ideal time for pruning is from July till the tail end of winter. There are over 100 varieties of butterfly bushes in the world. The flowering plants of butterfly bushes come in multiple colors ranging from red and blue to pink and purple to white and yellow and lots more. As a warning, do not use insecticides on your butterfly bushes as they can kill the butterfly larvae or sometimes even the butterflies.

Best Butterfly Habitats

Having butterfly bushes to attract the butterflies and humming birds is a great idea. But it would be wiser to think out of the box and create a friendly habitat for the butterflies. One such idea is to incorporate a few flat rocks in the surrounding area where the butterflies can enjoy and bask in the sun. Also, butterflies need some place to cool off. You can provide a relaxing habitat by including small muddy patches in your garden.

Butterfly bushes are available in a large variety of single colors- purple, orange, blue, red, pink etc. They are also available as bi-colored plants. A great selection of butterfly plants is available in smaller container sizes that are easiy affordable from Greenwood Nursery.

Planting under Black Walnut Trees

December 30th, 2011

What plants grow under black walnut trees? This is a question that we at Greenwood Nursery hear quite often. It is a good question, because not all plants thrive in close proximity to black walnut trees.

The black walnut secretes a chemical from its ...

Image via Wikipedia

Juglans nigra, commonly known as black walnut, is the largest of the twenty species of Juglans native to the United States. It easily grows to a height of 100 feet; its strong, straight trunk and magnificent canopy enhance most any landscape that has an appropriate scale for the trees massive size.

It is prized by the high-end furniture market because of its uniformity, durability and the luxurious chocolate-brown color of its heartwood. Many landowners, who have a few acres to spare, are planting genetically superior black walnut trees as an investment which will mature in 25 to 30 years.

Horticulturists discovered that certain plants did not do well, while some withered and died, when planted close to or underneath the canopy of black walnut trees. Black walnut trees secrete a biochemical substance known as Juglone. These secretions sometimes drip from the leaves down onto plants and ground below and leaches out from the roots below ground as well. The process is known as allelopathy.

Though Juglone is a poison to many plant varieties, making it difficult in planting under black walnut trees. However, there is still a large number of shrubs and perennials that can be safely planted under the canopy or near black walnut trees that are resistant to the effects of Juglone.

Avoid planting the following near or under the canopy of black walnut trees: Apples, white birch, mountain laurels, blackberries, blueberries, tomato plants, azaleas, chrysanthemum, crocus, hydrangeas, lilacs and rhododendron.
And now for a few plants that can be planted near Black Walnut trees: most grasses, aster, shasta daisy, vinca, hostas, phlox, wisteria, Morning Glory, ajuga, solomon’s seal, and Virginia creeper.Tolerant trees and shrubs include arborvitae, white ash, american beech, catalpa, black cherry, flowering dogwood, forsythia, hibiscus, red maple, japanese maple, oaks, privet, eastern redbud, sumac, sycamore, tulip tree, euonymus, rosa rugosa, viburnum (except maresii), and heucheras.A word of caution: Many factors, other than the presence of Juglone, will affect the viability of your trees and plants. Soil, moisture, temperature, shade and sunlight all play a role so results in growth may vary.

Visit Greenwood’s page on Planting under Black Walnut trees for a selection of plant varieties that will grow under the canopy of the black walnut trees.

Spring Mulching

March 15th, 2011

Image via Wikipedia

Need an extra pair of hands while working in the garden? Me, too! I have found the solution to my short handedness…The Gardener’s Hollow Leg. Finally, you can pick, pull and prune your plants, keeping the trash at your side, all the while you your hands are free. No bending or stooping to put trash in a garbage bag and dragging it along. This lightweight fabric sack attaches to your waist or across your shoulder and it’s waterproof so you don’t get dirty. Order yours today!

Are the plants in your yard beginning to leaf out or swell with buds yet? If they’re not, they certainly will be soon. Maybe you’re wondering about when to fertilize. Well, it depends.

A good layer of aged compost, aged manure or bark mulch can be placed around the base of your plants now. Create a ring around the plants that is 2 to 4 inches deep extending approximately 18 to 24 inches from the trunk of the plant. Be sure to leave a welled area at the base of the plant of roughly 3 inches wide around the trunk of the plant so the mulch doesn’t touch the bark. This welled area is to direct water to the root system and for air circulation.

Once your trees and shrubs have leafed out, you can apply a timed-release fertilizer. Unless you have tested your soil and know where the soil’s nutrients are lacking, a basic fertilizer can be used such as a 10-10-10. Fertilize is used to balance out the lacking or low level nutrients in your soil’s pH. Here is a link to a page that will explain how to read the fertilize label and the best way to distribute it. For more fertilizing information – click here.
