Native Fern Advantages

Native Ferns

Every landscape has a place for exotic plants native to faraway places. There are many more places for plants native to the local area that are well adapted to local environmental stresses. Native plants also are more resistant to insects and diseases common in the local area. Of all native plants, native ferns are highly desirable. Fern plants are available in wide varieties, each of which brings its qualities to the landscape.

Native ferns are tough and undemanding as long as they have enough shade and moisture 

Tall fern plants provide a feathery backdrop for other types of plants. Medium-sized ferns can form a veritable sea of cultivated plants that soften the lines of any landscape where shade is abundant.

Ferns are available in a broad range of types and textures. Ferns with a heavy, coarse texture can stand on their own or provide a backdrop for other ferns with delicate, feathery fronds. Delicate, low-growing ferns provide a beautiful complement to flowering plants.

Native ferns are wonderfully versatile and provide interest in the perennial garden

Most ferns barely notice the insects and diseases that can plague other types of plants. Once established, they require very little care. Ferns are very nearly carefree yet offer a high return in terms of their value in the landscape.

 

Lily Pads - TN Nursery

Lily Pads

Lily Pads are round, flat, floating leaves of aquatic plants, typically green in color, providing a resting place for frogs and a picturesque element in ponds and water gardens. They are often associated with serene ponds and water gardens, they offer unique benefits when strategically incorporated into landscaping designs. Their aquatic nature, ability to create captivating reflections, contributions to ecosystem health, and role in enhancing the visual and sensory experience make them valuable to outdoor spaces. Lily pads are clusters of aquatic plants with leaves and blooms that grow in ponds, water gardens, and natural bodies of water. They root in the soil at the bottom of quiet, freshwater habitats. There are many reasons to cultivate these uncommonly alluring plants. The Extraordinary Beauty Of Lily Pads If you want breathtaking plants and a unique landscape, consider them. The magnificent blossoms burst forth through the surface of the water with bold flowers in a rainbow of colors from bright white, pale pink, and rich red to yellow and even blue. Large green leaves provide a stunning backdrop for these graceful flowers. The delicate petals and intricate stamens create a visually exquisite display that can grace your landscape with something very special. The Spiritual Symbolism Of The Perennial Lilies represent resurrection, rebirth, purity, and enlightenment. From the muck at the bottom of the pond, they emerge triumphantly, transformed into extraordinary blossoms. They have long been associated with higher qualities of consciousness like enlightenment and spiritual awakening. Some cultures associate the plants with grace, beauty, harmony, and serenity. In Buddhism and Hinduism, the pads have spiritual significance. In ancient Egypt, they were thought to repel negative entities, while Christians saw them as symbols of life, energy, and vitality. The Hardy Leaves and Blooms  The leaves can be round, oval, or heart-shaped, and they float on the surface of the water. The leaves are supported by long stalks that emerge from thick, fleshy underwater roots. The leaves have a waxy coating that repels water while keeping them dry and buoyant. The size of the leaves varies by species. They range from a few inches to one foot in diameter. The flowers have delicate petals arranged in layers around a disk. The petals can be single or double-layered. The Strong Roots  Visible blooms and leaves can completely cover the surface of a body of water. The showy display is supported by strong roots made of fleshy rhizomes that secure the plants in the muddy substrate at the bottom of the water. The rhizomes produce slender roots that absorb nutrients in the water and further secure the plant in its position. The plant is important in aquatic ecosystems, where it can be a primary food source and desirable habitat for fish and small animals alike.   Shop Today At TN Nursery
