The beauty of the Natchez White Crepe Myrtle 

The Natchez White Crepe Myrtle is a beautiful flowering tree that exhibits lovely white blooms for you to enjoy from June through to September. A truly spectacular tree with striking clusters of flowers, many other attractive features are worth mentioning. The glossy, dark green foliage, which is a dramatic contrast to the delicate white blooms of summer, changes to a reddish-orange shade in the fall. When the delicate clusters of flowers have said their farewells to summer, they also change, yielding to an earthy, brown-toned fruit. Even the bark is showy, and it peels off in layers very similar to the layers of birch trees.

Originally from Asia, this extraordinary tree is now naturalized in the southeastern part of the United States. However, more than any other type of crepe myrtle, this one is also highly resistant to powdery mildew and aphids. That is good news for professional gardeners, but also those just starting. That is because it is complicated to successfully treat most diseases caused by powdery mildew.

Another positive selling point of this tree is that it is naturally resistant to breakage

As a result, it requires very little pruning to encourage the growth of a sturdy structure. If pruning is done, it is best to do it in late winter or early spring before new summer growth appears. It is much easier to see the natural shape of the tree then and which branches need removing.

Even though this particular myrtle prefers rich, moist soil, it is very adaptable, and it accepts clay and alkaline soils very well. It looks impressive in a large area, but it can grow in limited soil spaces. That makes it an excellent choice for adding drama and beauty to urban areas, parking lots, and other small pavement cutouts.

In short, if you want a tree that is showy all summer long, hardy against diseases and aphids, resistant to breakage, easy to tend, and drought-tolerant, then this plant is an excellent choice.

River Birch Tree - TN Nursery

River Birch Tree

The River Birch tree is a medium-sized deciduous type native to North America, prized for its distinctive peeling bark, triangular leaves, and tolerance for wet or poorly drained soils. Highly valued in landscaping for their aesthetic appeal, adaptability, and numerous benefits. With their unique characteristics and practical advantages, these are famous for enhancing outdoor spaces. The River Birch Tree is a deciduous shade-giver with charming, ornamental features for every season. It grows quickly, averaging up to 40 feet tall with a proportionate 30-foot canopy, and it is best known for its vibrant leaves and unusual bark.   River Birch Tree Has Stunning Foliage It showcases true forest green foliage. Serrated edges give each leaf character, and the leaves grow on delicate branches that move easily with the wind. The leaves' alternating arrangement gives them space to flutter, and the combined effect catches the eye in even a light breeze. In autumn, the green turns to gold. This gorgeous plant puts on a bright show at the end of the growing season. A single plant or small stand can add seasonal color to gardens after the summer flowers have had their turn. This Tree Has Unique Bark As lovely as its leaves are, this plant's claim to fame is its bark. Contrasting colors pop, and this species' vivid black, white, brown, and salmon bark looks like an Impressionist painting brought to life. The bark naturally peels in papery layers as it grows, creating a shifting display that has enchanted artists and poets for centuries. It's a wonderful trait for gardens and landscape designs. Even without leaves, this plant adds color and visual texture throughout the year. It Has Flowers It has unusual flowers. Instead of petaled blooms in spring, their catkins decorate otherwise bare branches through winter. The catkins grow larger in early spring, and the unusual flowers are relatively discreet. They serve as points of interest for guests and hopeful, seasonal signals that a long, hard winter is ending. Help Save Wildlife With TN Nursery These plants invite nature into any space. They're great choices for birdwatchers because they attract hummingbirds and a variety of songbirds. Seeds from fertilized catkins draw many species, and their structure also supports safe nests, so it isn't unusual for chicks to grow up singing in one. Several types of butterflies visit them as well. These plants deliver practical and ornamental benefits for landscapers seeking fast-growing and attractive trees. Their shade, colors, and feathered guests transform outdoor spaces into welcoming environments.
