Okame Cherry Tree (Prunus okame) Okame Cherry Tree: Prunus Okame, or the Okame Cherry Tree, is a small, deciduous, ornamental tree that most gardeners purchase from TN Nursery to enjoy the stunning pink springtime blossoms. The Okame cherry tree is a Japanese native species. It became a favorite American species after Japan gifted these trees to Washington, D.C., in 1912. The gift was a gesture symbolizing Japan's friendship with the United States. The Okame cherry tree performs best in the warmer USDA growing zones, from the mid-south to the deep south and across the lower midwestern states. How to Use the Okame Cherry Tree in Your Landscape The Okame cherry tree is a small size for a tree, reaching a thirty-foot maximum height. It requires full sunshine and about an inch of water per week. Besides some care at planting, the Okame cherry tree is easy to take care of, especially once well-established. It doesn't mind hot, humid summers. However, it is also drought-tolerant, disease-resistant, and pest-resistant. Plant this tree as a focal point specimen to accentuate a driveway or sidewalk, as a patio tree, in a pollinator garden, or anywhere you want bountiful blossoms in the spring. The Breathtaking Charm of the Okame Cherry Tree The Okame cherry tree is a member of the rose family--more prized as an ornamental than harvesting any fruit. A single trunk splits into several upright, sturdy branches. The bark is a bronze to red-brown hue with shallow, vertical furrowing. Flowers have five ray-shaped petals, measure about an inch, and are a rosy, bright pink tint. They bloom profusely for about two to three weeks in the middle of spring and emit a softly floral fragrance. The leaves emerge after the blossoms drop. Their leaves are petite, under three inches, alternating along the branches and stems.

Sycamore Tree
Sycamore Tree (Plantus occidentalis) Sycamore Tree: Plantus occidentalis, or the American sycamore tree, is a deciduous North American native species. It originated on the continent's east coast, stretching from southern Canada to northern Mexico. The sycamore tree is a tall, emerald green specimen, prized by landscapers and gardeners for its abundant shade, dense crown, and graceful good looks. The Sycamore Tree Is Good-Natured It grows well in most continental USDA growing zones, equally able to tolerate icy winters and summer heat. Its easygoing nature can thrive in soil with high moisture content but is drought-tolerant. It prefers a location that provides a combination of sun and shade. However, it can tolerate full sunshine if you keep the soil moist, especially during long and hot summer days. As an eastern forest native species, the sycamore tree loves woody organic matter. Your tree would love for you to put some hardwood mulch around it, especially mixing in some organics when you first plant your tree. Once you meet those two basic needs, your sycamore tree will establish roots and become self-sufficient faster than you can imagine. The Stately, Grand Appearance of the Sycamore Tree The sycamore tree is a grand, tall species that can grow up to one hundred feet and almost that wide at the crown. The crown is pleasantly shaped, rounded at the top, and usually slightly asymmetrical. The branches and leaves are dense, creating plenty of shade to relax on a hot day. Sycamore tree has a sturdy trunk with nutty brown to dark gray bark near the base, often mottled with red tones. It develops scales around the base. The upper bark lightens to a lighter tone as the bark exfoliates and exposes a fresh, more delicate layer. Sycamore tree leaves have three to five lobes, alternate on the stem, have slightly toothy edges, and are broad and oval-shaped. Their color is a bold green color. In the autumn, the leaves usually turn yellow or amber.

Wild Blackberry
Wild Blackberry Bush Wild Blackberry Bush: TN Nursery presents the wild blackberry bush, a North American native species particularly abundant in the United States. The wild blackberry bush is an easy-to-grow, low-maintenance plant that is multi-functional. Not only does it bear sinfully sweet and juicy berries, but it also makes a lovely ornamental. The five-petaled white flowers grow in beautiful clusters sometime between late spring and early summer and then bear those famously delicious berries in the later part of the summertime. Some gardeners choose the wild blackberry bush to take advantage of its spread, not for the fruit. Each plant can grow as much as five feet across and tall. They grow in brambles or thickets and can liven up an area of the yard that may otherwise go underutilized. How to Grow the Wild Blackberry B When you plant your wild blackberry bush, remember the five-foot spread. Allow them some elbow room for future growth. Although the bare root you receive from TN Nursery might look small now, it will mature in just a few growing seasons. The wild blackberry shrub is intriguing because its root is perennial, but its foliage is biennial. That means the canes grow, bear fruit, then die back; however, fresh canes will emerge to replace the dead ones. Annual pruning, either at the end of the season or early spring before flowers develop, will keep a wild blackberry bush in good health. They prefer soil that drains well, and you should plan to fertilize them once yearly during late spring. Because the wild blackberry bush is a native species, it is drought-tolerant. It prefers about an inch of water per week, mainly as it produces blossoms and berries. However, it is resilient and can tolerate short dry spells.

Bald Cypress Tree
Bald Cypress Tree Bald Cypress Tree: Taxodium distichum, or the bald cypress tree, is a North American native evergreen tree species. Before cultivation, it occurred naturally across most of the temperate USDA growing zones. Early colonials found this tree in many areas, from the marshlands and swamps of the eastern shore of Maryland to the lower Mississippi River region. They cultivated this tree when they found its wood to be rot-resistant and sturdy for building barrels, homes, and even railroad ties. Today, growers across the United States love the bald cypress tree for its adaptability, year-round greenery, easy care, and lovely shape. TN Nursery recommends this tree for gardeners who need something to plant in constantly wet, poorly-draining soil. Where to Grow the Bald Cypress Tree The bald cypress tree loves soil with a heavy moisture content and abundant organic matter. In fact, this tree even thrives in marshes and swamps! When you plant your bald cypress, select a full-sun location. It makes a lovely species to plant in these locations: Near a creek or stream. On the banks of a pond. In a slow-draining spot in the yard. As a feature in a water garden. The Evergreen Beauty of the Bald Cypress Tree The bald cypress tree grows to a mature height between fifty and seventy feet. If in water, the species develops knobby-looking root growths, or knees, that appears just above the water's surface. This species grows to a pyramid or triangle shape with a slightly rounded top. Mature branches have a subtle but attractive drooping form. The bark presents as a dark reddish-brown with thin, peeling scales. The bald cypress tree bears small, feathery-looking, linear leaves almost an inch long.

Sphagnum Moss - 5 Square Feet
Sphagnum Moss (Spagnum centrale) Sphagnum Moss: You might better recognize spaghnum moss by its more widely known name, peat moss. This mossy plant is beloved by gardeners who cultivate this moss to add nutrients and retain moisture in their soil.  Gardeners in drought-prone areas benefit from using sphagnum moss as a ground cover plant to minimize their need for water. Sphagnum moss is especially helpful for people who grow herb gardens, vegetables, berry plants, or flower gardens in locations that require a lot of sunshine that parches the earth. Amending the soil with dead sphagnum moss can help increase the garden's moisture retention, absorbing water not allowing to go in the ground. Besides being fantastic for adding nutrients and locking in water, sphagnum moss provides lovely green foliage that spreads relatively quickly. It's a beautiful addition to any shade garden. Sphagnum Moss Contributes to a Healthy Ecosystem Some call sphagnum moss an environment manipulator. As it grows, it can change the makeup of the ecosystem. Sphagnum absorbs minerals like magnesium and calcium and then releases hydrogen ions acidifying the environment. This process makes growing Sphagnum centrale an ideal way to acidify more alkaline soils naturally without using harsh chemical treatments.  Some plants that benefit from this acidification process include berries, orchids, tomatoes, and other fruits.  Sphagnum Moss Retains Water Like Nobody's Business You might call sphagnum moss a moisture magnet. This mossy plant has a cell structure that retains significant amounts of moisture. The plant has a barrel shape with tiny, sponge-like openings that pull in a surprisingly large amount of water.  After it collects the humidity, sphagnum moss expels the water into the surrounding area. As the peat moss continues reproducing and expanding its footprint, it creates puddles around it that grow in size with the expansion of the spread of the moss. As older sphagnum dies, it adds nutrients to the soil and will decompose slowly, becoming an excellent, moisture-rich compost and potting mix. Sphagnum moss should be part of your plan to grow a more resilient, self-sufficient garden.

The plant has narrow, lance-shaped leaves about 2-3 inches long, producing small, white, or pale purple flower clusters from mid-summer to early fall. The flowers are tubular and favored by pollinators like bees and butterflies.Water willow has been used for medicinal purposes by some Native American tribes to treat various ailments, including fevers, coughs, and digestive problems. It is also a food source for some aquatic wildlife; its stems and leaves can cover fish and other aquatic animals.Water willow is a popular plant for use in water gardens and aquariums, as it provides aesthetic value and benefits to the ecosystem. It can be propagated by seeds or by taking stem cuttings, and it prefers full sun to partial shade and moist, well-drained soil. Water Willow: Justicia americana, or the American water willow, is an aquatic perennial that will add lovely purple flowers and greenery to your pond or water garden. The North American native pond species grows on the banks of creeks, ponds, and small lakes in nature. It loves to bask in the full sunshine. TN Nursery grows some of the hardiest species you could hope to find--it will not disappoint you. Water Willow care and maintenance Your pond or water garden creates an ecosystem and requires plants to maintain good health. That is especially true if you stock your pond with koi or other fish. Here are the reasons why you must add plants to a water garden, aside from the apparent beauty: Fish in your pond need plant life to hide from predators that would love to snack on them, such as birds of prey or raccoons. Your water garden will attract frogs. They are essential to providing natural insect control (especially from mosquitoes). Like the fish, frogs will hide out among greenery to escape predators. Water willow and other plants will oxygenate the water, keeping your pond healthy for supporting wildlife. The Graceful Good Looks of Justicia americana TN Nursery grows water willows of a variant so hardy that it extends north of Alaska. These are smaller plants, only about three feet above the water line. The white and violet-colored flowers have four petals, each in an elongated oval shape and with a gentle, graceful curve that gives the impression of a loose curl. The flowers appear in early summer and reappear throughout the warm months, right into the first days of fall. The roots grow partially submerged on the sunny banks or in the pond's shallows, sending out bright green, long, slender leaves. Water Willow Plants are available online at TN Nursery Today.
