Hosta

Hosta

Hostas are shade-loving perennials known for their large, heart-shaped, and often variegated leaves and spikes of bell-shaped flowers, making them popular choices for garden borders and landscaping in low-light areas. They are renowned for their lush foliage and graceful appearance, which offer many benefits when incorporated into landscaping designs. These versatile perennials have gained popularity for their ability to enhance outdoor spaces with their aesthetic appeal, adaptability, and ease of maintenance. Hosta is an attractive herbaceous plant that can grow up to 4 feet in height, although a height of 18 inches is more common. There are several species of them, each with slight differences in leaf color. Each species has a different bloom, making exceptional focal points in any garden. Hosta Has Stunning Leaves The type seen most commonly in the United States is the "Keepsake." The charming green leaves ringed with yellow accents are popular because of their hardiness in different climates and the beautiful vistas they create in a garden. Sometimes, the lighter color rings are shades of white rather than yellow, but they don't lose any eye-catching effects. They have leaves of a single color, usually dark green. All their leaves are sturdy and ribbed, even if they're longer and tapered rather than cheerfully oval. Most versions have pretty purple or white flowers that bloom in the early summer through the beginning of fall. The flower buds form in the middle of spring and are generally the same color as the flowers. Even when they're just budding, they are beautiful plants that complement everything else in the garden. Once the buds bloom, the flowers form trumpet, bell, or elongated pendulous shapes. Only one version of these flowers has a strong scent, called the "August Lily." It's a shy flower, blooming in the evening and closing up again by morning, so it'll brighten up any garden when the sun goes down. Hosta Does Great With Other Plants When they are surrounded by flowers of similar colors, such as California bluebells for the species with violet flowers or tuberose for the white-flowered species, it creates a breathtaking effect. Alternating the various species in concentric rings would increase their appeal and let them truly shine. This Hosta Is Good for Pollinators Hosta blooms are essential for pollinators, such as bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. The flowers provide nectar, and the leaves collect dew in the mornings, allowing these little creatures to drink while visiting the garden.

Individual flowers feature a large petal at the top and two smaller petals cupped together around a center with yellow-green stamens. Flower petals can be all shades of purple and white, and some may have a bluish or pinkish tint. It's common for the flower clusters to have a pleasant, ombre appearance, with flowers at the tip of the cluster being a much darker shade of purple. Wisteria Vine Is Flexible  Since this plant's flexibility can twist into many shapes, it's a highly versatile landscaping option. Some people prefer to keep their plant as a tree or bush.

Once the weather cools, the leaves turn a brilliant yellow before falling away to reveal the fascinating twists and loops of the underlying branches.

English Ivy

English Ivy

English Ivy is a low-growing ground cover plant; it has glossy, heart-shaped leaves and produces small, inconspicuous brownish-purple flowers nestled among its dense, carpet-like foliage. It is a fantastic and versatile plant with several landscaping benefits. This evergreen vine is native to Europe and Western Asia and is widely embraced for its aesthetic appeal, adaptability, and practical applications. English Ivy is a woody evergreen perennial vine and foliage plant proliferating on vertical surfaces like trees, walls, fences, and trellises. The ancient Greeks believed the plant was sacred to the god Dionysus, and pagan druids revered it as a symbol of the divine feminine. In classical Latin, “hedera” refers to the ability to grasp, which is in keeping with the vine’s nature. English Ivy Loves Shade Native to Europe, Scandinavia, and parts of Russia, the Hedera helix is nearly ubiquitous in Britain and is naturalized and prolific in many regions of the United States. In the wild, the plant grows under, on trees, and up the sides of rocky cliffs, favoring moist, shady areas out of the sun. Mature Hedera helix vines typically grow up to 80 feet tall and span a three- to five-foot width. Their climbing stems bear young, five-lobed leaves, while their fertile stems bear adult, spade-shaped leaves. These deep-green leaves can vary in size between two and four inches long. The top of the plant will often develop clusters of small, greenish-yellow flowers that bloom from late summer until late autumn. These nectar-rich blossoms will eventually yield a crop of small purple-black to orange-yellow berries that persist into winter. English Ivy Kills Weeds Its bright green foliage can add all-season color to any landscape and beautify forlorn spaces. Its vines can be trained to climb many stable vertical surfaces or grown as a ground cover to suppress weeds. Since Hedera helix proliferates, it can make a good screen on a fence or trellis. When carefully grown on exterior building walls, it can protect their surfaces from exposure to bad weather and help regulate the temperature. Within the United States, Hedera helix can provide food and habitat for wildlife. Butterflies and moths eat their leaves, bees feed on their flowers’ nectar, and birds eat their berries in winter. The foliage often shelters insects and small animals and sometimes attracts nearby deer. English Ivy Is An Evergreen Hedera helix is a beautiful evergreen vine with a rich history. When you plant it in your garden, you can enjoy its charming English ivy character all year.

However, it's worth noting that the most significant benefit is what the plant reveals. Because it removes toxins, changes in the plant's health could indicate issues with the soil or the air that even this hardy little plant can't handle by itself.

This vascular plant has root systems, allowing it to defend against soil erosion more effectively. Its love of moisture also means that it can protect against flooding and absorb more water when it appears. Running Cedar is small, but it spreads out, making it an excellent, lush green ground cover for any space in your yard. Unlike traditional moss, it also has the added benefit of the stately strobili, which reaches into the air to add volume and help the plant reproduce.

Fan Clubmoss

Fan Clubmoss

Fan Clubmoss is a low-growing, evergreen plant with densely packed, needle-like leaves that form a distinctive, fan-like appearance and often cover forest floors. It is a unique and versatile plant with various landscaping benefits. Its unusual appearance and adaptability make it a popular choice for enhancing the aesthetics and functionality of outdoor spaces. Unlike its name may suggest, it is not a true moss but a primitive vascular plant belonging to the Lycopodiaceae family. Fan clubmoss called running cedar or ground pine, looks like a low-growth coniferous plant. However, it is a clubmoss, which is related to ferns. This non-flowering perennial plant was once commonly found across the eastern portion of North America. However, deforestation has dramatically reduced its presence in the wild. Because of its many notable attributes, this plant is an ideal choice to consider adding to your yard.

Its pine-looking branches are out, creating a stunning design up close. From farther away, the ground appears to be blanketed in green.

Some people trim the plants into a topiary design to add an ornamental touch to their yard. Weed Control With Fan Clubmoss This plant is commonly used for ground cover as it proliferates and stays close to the ground. Because the plants can grow densely together, they can block out sunlight from reaching any vegetation attempting to grow underneath it for optimized weed control. This is a highly adaptable plant that can be incorporated in numerous environments. Generally, it will dry out in drought conditions but return with moisture. At one time, when the plant thrived in its native habitat, this plant was harvested in the wild and used for winter holiday decorations.

The evergreen leaves can also be added to your home decor throughout the rest of the year, such as in a floral vase for a boost of greenery. Minimize Erosion With Fan Clubmoss Fan Clubmoss can absorb considerable water, which is beneficial during heavy rainstorms. It can hold ten times its weight in moisture, offering natural protection in areas prone to erosion.

Lyreleaf Sage

Lyreleaf Sage is a perennial wildflower characterized by its delicate, lyre-shaped leaves and spikes of tubular, purple-to-blue flowers. It is often found in dry, open woodlands and meadows. When thoughtfully integrated into landscaping designs, it presents a range of benefits. Its distinctive appearance, adaptability, contributions to biodiversity, and potential for enhancing outdoor spaces' visual and ecological aspects make it a valuable addition to gardens and landscapes. Lyreleaf Sage Produces Flowers Annually  Lyreleaf sage, also known as Salvia lyrata, is an herbaceous perennial. This means that its stems usually do not consist of any woodsy parts. It produces flowers annually before losing them every winter and usually lives for over two years.  Also, being described as "sage" means that it is a hardy, vigorous plant that can withstand being walked on much more than is the case for many other types of greenery. It is also known for its ability to resist, especially wet or dry conditions. This plant is the only one with this specific description native to North America. It should not be confused with the nightshade, an East Asian flowering plant.

Its stem usually reaches 1-2 feet long, and leaves typically grow higher, although those located there are much simpler.

20 Mixed Soil Erosion Vines - Perfectly Selected For Your Zone

20 Mixed Soil Erosion Vines - Perfectly Selected For Your Zone

Planting vines for soil erosion control is an effective and environmentally friendly method that has been practiced for centuries. Vines are climbing or trailing plants that grow by extending their stems. They can be instrumental in stabilizing dirt on slopes, preventing erosion, and improving overall landscape health. This article will discuss the usage of vines for soil erosion control, highlighting their benefits, types of vines commonly used, and best practices for successful implementation. Vines In The Battle To Fight Soil Erosion Unattended, it can lead to the loss of topsoil and sedimentation in water pools. To combat these issues, planting vines is a sustainable approach that offers several advantages. Vines have an extensive root system that helps bind dirt particles together, reducing erosion risk. Their roots penetrate deep into the dirt, creating channels for water absorption and increasing dirt stability. Additionally, the dense foliage of many vine species acts as a protective cover, shielding the ground from the impact of heavy raindrops and wind, thereby reducing erosion rates. Various types of vines are commonly used for soil erosion control. One popular choice is the English ivy (Hedera helix), a vigorous vine known for covering large areas quickly. It forms a dense vegetation mat that helps control slope erosion and can be particularly effective on steep inclines. The Remarkable Trumpet Vine Fights Soil Erosion Another notable vine is the trumpet vine (Campsis radicans), valued for its attractive trumpet-shaped flowers and ability to grow in various dirt conditions. Its fast growth and sprawling habit suit areas where erosion is a concern. Additionally, the Honeysuckle family (Lonicera spp.) offers several vine species that can be used for control, such as Japanese Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) and Hall's Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica 'Halliana'). These vines proliferate and form dense covers, preventing erosion on slopes and embankments. Several best practices should be followed to successfully implement vine planting for erosion control; a site assessment is crucial to determining the area's needs, such as dirt type, sunlight exposure, and moisture levels. This information will guide the selection of suitable vine species adapted to the site conditions. Preparing the planting site is another essential step. It involves removing existing vegetation, loosening the dirt, and incorporating organic matter to improve dirt structure. This will create an optimal environment for vine growth and root development. Proper spacing should be considered when planting the vines to ensure adequate coverage without overcrowding. Spacing guidelines recommend planting vines 6 to 12 feet apart, depending on their growth habits and the desired coverage rate. Soil Erosion Vines Does Well In Climbing Gardens  Support structures such as trellises, arbors, or stakes may be necessary to guide the vines' growth and prevent damage to nearby structures or plants. Regular maintenance is vital to ensuring the success of vine planting. It includes watering the vines during dry periods, especially in the establishment phase, and mulching the dirt around the base of the plants to retain moisture and suppress weed growth. Pruning should also be performed to control excessive growth and maintain the desired shape and coverage. In conclusion, planting vines for dirt control is a sustainable and effective method with numerous benefits. Vines help stabilize dirt on slopes, reduce erosion rates, and enhance the landscape's health.

Evergreen vines are incredibly versatile and can be used in many ways to enhance your garden or landscaping. From covering an unsightly chain link fence to providing colorful ground cover, there's a lot you can do with them. The fact that they're evergreen means you can expect color year-round and, in many cases, blooming flowers from late winter through spring.

Landscaping With Evergreen Vines

Evergreen vines are a go-to plant for many gardeners and landscapers because they have many uses. They require less space to grow than other plants for borders and privacy screens. People with small backyards or gardens can use them to add a lot of greenery and color in limited space. They can create shade to avoid growing a tree in your yard. They are also fast-growing, so they can be used to cover something with greenery and even flowers quickly.

Decorative Trellises and Arbors With Evergreen Vines 

Planting Evergreen vines to cover a trellis or arbor is a favorite way to use them in a backyard. They provide a beautiful privacy screen and shade for the summer months. Just be sure to grow them on a sturdy structure. They have an aggressive growth pattern and could collapse a structure under their weight in time. Wisteria Sinensis, Vinca Minor, and Periwinkle are excellent choices for decorating a trellis or arbor.

English Ivy is a favorite for planting near a fence or climbing wall. It grows fast to provide a privacy screen. Even when the plant sheds leaves, it has new growth so quickly that it's barely noticeable. The densely green color of ivy allows it to fit well with any landscaping scheme.

TN Nursery Offers Many Evergreen Vines 

Certain creeping types like partridgeberry plants can be used for colorful ground cover on hillsides or bare spaces in your landscaping. A ground cover grab bag from TN Nursery allows you to experiment with a batch of different types to see which ones are your favorite. We select the samplers we'll send you based on your zip code to ensure they're good choices for your climate zone.

Ajuga Reptans is one of our hard choices for an evergreen vine that works as ground cover. Its blooming flowers provide color in the spring and summer months and attract butterflies, bees, and other pollinators. Ajuga Reptans can form a carpet on the landscape where grasses don't want to grow. It also acts as a weed control plant and prevents soil erosion.
