River Birch Live Stakes

River Birch Live Stakes

River Birch Live Stakes are young, rooted cuttings or branches of the trees (Betula nigra) used for streambank and erosion control, known for their rapid growth and ability to stabilize soil along waterways. If you have a property close to a riverbed or other body of water, river birch live stakes can help. They take a short time to grow, are easy to collect, and can protect your land against erosion or a reduction in soil quality in a relatively short period. A stake is little more than a branch or root cut from its parent tree. Stakes are often cultivated during the winter when the tree is dormant and planted directly on the side of a riverbed or other body of water. After planting, they will grow into a new tree. Benefits of Using River Birch Live Stakes Using it can be beneficial for several reasons, including being easy to obtain and plant. In addition, they tend to start guarding against erosion and other soil issues as soon as they are planted. Of course, it may take a few months before the root system can fully establish itself in a given area. Finally, as it is a natural resource, you won't have to use chemicals, machines, or anything else that might pollute to save or reclaim a landscape. The Growth Of River Birch Live Stakes  The tree can grow up to 70 feet tall and 60 feet wide to have a relatively robust root system underneath it. Those roots will collect excess water, which helps to prevent erosion on sloped surfaces. It generally takes two or three years to produce what are referred to as nutlets, the seeds that also allow the tree to propagate. Attract Wildlife to Your Property With River Birch Live Stakes By keeping a landscape viable, River Birch Live Stakes can be used to attract wildlife back to your property. A variety of birds, squirrels, and other creatures will use the tree for shelter and as a source of food. Fortunately, the tree is unlikely to be damaged by pests, so you'll have it on your property for decades.

Black Eyed Susan

Black Eyed Susan

The vibrant Black Eyed Susan offers a long Summer and Fall blooming cycle, making it a favorite of all sun perennials. Its striking yellow petals resemble daisies, making it a garden favorite. It also attracts pollinators like butterflies, bees, and birds, making it an essential favorite in the garden. The black "eye" in the center of the deep yellow blooms is striking, making it a more exotic plant than most.   Black Eyed Susans Resilience and Growth At maturity, it grows to be 1-3 feet in height, and the spread is 1-2' wide. If you love growing plants that offer more than just beauty, always opt for native plants and wildflowers like the Black Eyed Susan. The Latin name is Rudbeckia Hirta, and for those without a green thumb or those wanting a resilient plant that blooms and can not be harmed easily, this is the plant for you! They Thrive In Sun These perennials thrive in full sun and well-drained soil and are low-maintenance native plants that live for decades. That's why TN Nursery loves natives; not only are they disease- and pest-resistant, but they are also low-maintenance and hardy. Wildflower gardens and beds are usually where homeowners like to plant rudbeckia plants. It is a vibrant and cheerful flowering plant native to North America, belonging to the genus Rudbeckia. Here's a description: Appearance: They are known for their striking appearance, featuring golden-yellow petals surrounding a dark brown center, giving them their "black-eyed" look. The petals are often daisy-like in shape, with a slightly drooping or upright habit depending on the variety. Size: These plants can vary depending on the species and cultivar, but they typically range from 1 to 3 feet in height and have a spread of about 1 to 2 feet. Blooming period: They typically bloom from midsummer to early fall, adding color to gardens and landscapes. Growing conditions: They thrive in full sun and well-drained soil, although they can tolerate various soil types, including clay and sandy soils. They are relatively low-maintenance plants and are drought-tolerant once established. Landscaping uses: They are famous for borders, mass plantings, wildflower gardens, and cottage gardens. They also attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies, making them valuable additions to wildlife-friendly landscapes. They Have Stunning Blooms Overall, Black Eyed Susans are cherished for their beauty, resilience, and ability to brighten up any garden with their vibrant blooms. They have a flower pattern similar to daisies. However, their bright yellow petals and cone-shaped centers are a dead giveaway. This exceptionally cheery flower can survive less-than-perfect conditions, making it an excellent choice for dryer climates. Whatever your landscaping plans, read on to discover why they should be a part of them. The Aesthetic Appeal of the Black Eyed Susan  They are mostly known for their bright yellow petals, which are of a similar hue to common sunflowers. The petals reach the sky before splaying parallel and then downward to expose the unique cone-shaped center. This gives the blooms an expressive appearance that spreads color and life throughout any landscape they adorn. Another attractive feature is the stem length.  The plants can grow between one and three feet tall, with two feet being the average. The long stem supports a single flower, which allows the bloom to be the focal point of the entire plant. The plant leaves are mostly basal, so they stay low to the ground. So, the stem holds the flower high off the ground with no nearby leaves cluttering the visual appeal.  The green plant has blade-shaped alternate leaves that grow about 3 and 7 inches long. The leaves and the stem of the plant are covered in fine hairs. The flowers' diameter can vary between 1 ½" to 3" wide.  One of their most striking visual features is the intricate cone structure. The cone juts out from the bases of the petals and is flanked by tiny, sophisticated leaflets that reveal a bulging cluster of disc florets. As the flower's petals splay out, the tiny leaflets surrounding the cone similarly prostrate themselves - giving the bloom a concentric, ordered appeal.  In a garden, the gilded petals contrast to green ground cover plants and can handsomely complement flowers of various colors. Since they produce nectar that attracts pollinating insects and birds, they're an excellent option for drawing colorful wildlife and cultivating a bustling ecosystem in outdoor spaces.  Benefits of Them  They have become one of the most popular flowers in America for various reasons. Here are just a few of them: They Make Excellent Bouquet Flowers - Once cut, they can last for ten days or more. This makes them ideal for adding to your bouquet and other floral arrangements. Their bright yellow petals liven up outdoor and indoor areas and work well with purple, white, and red blooms.  They Produce Seeds - Pollinators like bees and butterflies seek out the flower's nectar. Once pollinated, the flower produces seeds that attract a variety of birds. So this is an excellent option if you want to attract more wildlife to your garden. They are also a staple among cultivators of butterfly gardens.  Easy Coverage: If given enough space, the plant can spread and provide excellent coverage of outdoor areas. Even as the stems support just one flower each, the plant can quickly colonize empty outdoor spaces.  Larval Hosts: Certain butterflies lay their eggs in them because the nectar sustains their larvae. Some of the species of butterfly that use them as larval hosts include the Silvery Checkerspot butterfly, the bordered patch butterfly, and the Gorgone Checkerspot butterfly.  Visual Appeal: Of course, many home gardeners enjoy the visual appeal of the flowers. The yellow petals and the dark centers (from which they derive their name) produce an attractive color scheme reminiscent of summer weather. Their golden-blazing palette also helps to illuminate dreary earth tones and liven up otherwise dull areas of gardens.  Mosquito Control: Lastly, they can help regulate the mosquito population in outdoor areas. The nectar and seeds of these flowers attract birds and dragonflies that feed on mosquitoes. Limiting mosquito exposure can also safeguard yourself and your loved ones from insect-borne illnesses.  If you are still on the fence as to whether the plant would be suitable for your gardening needs, take a look at the following list of common questions and their answers:  Do They Come Back Every Year?  The short answer is that they can. Depending on the growing conditions, they can be perennial, biennial, or annual; feed the plant with fertilizer or compost to encourage perennial growth. Deadheading will also keep the flowers healthy and proliferate new blooms.  When Should You Plant Them?  It would help if you planted yours in the spring or at the outset of autumn. Be sure to plant them where they will be exposed to full sun. Provide partial shade as the root system establishes to encourage longer blooming periods.  How Tall Do They Grow?  In general, the plant's long, skinny stems will lift the dazzling yellow flowers about 1-2 feet in the air. As always, the growing conditions will greatly affect how tall these plants grow and how wide they spread.  Sun or Shade? They thrive in full sun. You can also extend their bloom by giving them partial shade.  When Do They Bloom?  The plant tends to bloom from the early summer until just after the first frost of autumn.  Add Sunny Black-Eyed Susans to Your Garden At TN Nursery, we pride ourselves on making gardening fun and accessible for all. Our Black Eyed susans are easy to plant. Place your order today and breathe new life into your outdoor spaces.

New York Fern

New York Fern

New York Fern is a popular and low-maintenance fern native to New York. Its beautiful fronds can reach up to 2 feet long, making it a perfect addition to any indoor or outdoor garden. With moderate watering, it will thrive in almost any environment. New York Ferns Characteristics and Aesthetic Features The New York Fern is a perennial species of fern with very intricate fronds and leaflets that give it a sophisticated aesthetic. Apart from its natural beauty, the New York Fern is ideal for filling in gaps in your garden that could use more greenery. Today, we will look at the benefits of the New York Fern and answer some common questions about it The Beauty of the New York Fern The New York Fern has arguably one of the most complex leaf structures of all native ferns. Each leaf has about 20 leaflets, which are divided into rounded subleaflets. The subleaflets are a microcosm of the primary leaflets, making them exciting pieces to add to your garden or landscape. The leaflets can grow to about 25 inches and, as perennials, maintain a vibrant green hue for most of the year.  It's common for New York Ferns to produce three primary leaflets. However, they can also grow lower leaflets, which are not as long as the upper ones. This gives the New York Fern an attractive, textured look that can add elegance to any landscape. The fronds have a tapering pinnae (leaflet) pattern, one of the features that makes this plant unique. The leaflets close to the base are more extended and start to taper down as they work up to the tip of the frond. This gives them a blade-like shape and a natural order that adds to their appeal. The leaflets are also delicate and have a very soft, fine texture. They can be described as frilly or wispy but belie the natural hardiness of this fern. In the fall, you may see that your New York Fern's fronds take on a slightly yellowish hue - corresponding very well to natural autumn color motifs. In the Spring, though, the fronds of the New York Fern glow green and can quickly brighten up any garden or yard space. This makes this fern a popular choice for anyone who wants to enhance the greenery of their outdoor spaces easily. The stipe (stem) of the New York Fern is only 20% the height of the length of the fronds. The base of the stipe is a dark brown but adopts a green color as it meets with the fronds. What Are the Benefits of New York Ferns? Aside from the natural beauty that New York Ferns offer, there are plenty of peripheral benefits such as Grows Where Grass Doesn't - If you have difficulty maintaining grass in your yard, the New York Fern offers an easy alternative to increasing greenery. The roots take hold very quickly and provide ground coverage of green leaflets. Moreover, they can decrease ugly, brown, or yellowish growths because they displace weeds, making it harder for them to grow where these ferns are planted. Great for Woodland Planting- Because New York Ferns take root effectively, they are great for stabilizing recently disturbed soil in woodland areas. They fill in quickly and help stabilize the soil after various types of harvesting. Prevent Soil Erosion- The New York Fern can take root where it is difficult to grow anything. This will help bind the soil in problematic areas of your garden or landscape and prevent erosion. Suitable for Wildlife—The ground coverage that the fronds of the New York Fern provide creates a natural sanctuary for small, ground-dwelling animals. It can also act as a host plant for these kinds of creatures. Moreover, the New York Fern is a rabbit and deer-resistant plant, so you won't have to worry about it being gobbled up or destroyed by hungry critters. Easy Maintenance - New York fern is a hearty plant tolerant of many kinds of soil. While it prefers slightly moist to dry soil, it can also handle drier conditions. Once the root system has been established, the New York Fern requires minimal watering. They are hard to kill, so they are ideal for people who don't have a ton of gardening time on their hands but still want a green yard. New York Ferns F.A.Q.s Find the answers to some of the most common questions about New York Ferns:  How tall are New York Ferns at Maturity? The New York Fern can grow to about 8 to 25 inches. It stays low to the ground, making it suitable for planting with taller perennials.  Do New York Fern Spread? Yes. New York Ferns are known for quickly developing colonies on forest floors in the Northeastern United States. As a result, they can be aggressive towards nearby growing flowers and overtake less hearty plants. When do you Prune New York Ferns? New York Ferns don't require much pruning at all. You can remove yellowed or dying leaflets as they appear. If pruning is needed, do it in Spring before new leaflets emerge.  How Should You Plant New York Fern? Choose a place that is shaded chiefly but gets some indirect sunlight. New York Ferns also prefers nutrient-rich, well-drained soil. Adding compost is a good idea when planting as the New York Fern thrives with lots of organic matter. How Long Do New York Fern Live? The New York Fern is a long-lasting plant. With great care, it is not unreasonable to expect an 8-15 year lifespan from it. Where Do I  Purchase New York Ferns?

New York Fern Does Not Flower  The Latin name is the lypteris noveboracensis, native to various fern species. Ferns are nonflowering species and reproduce through spores. They are often found in moist environments along streams, in woody areas, and deep forests. The fern gets its name from the state due to the abundance of the plant growing there. It is native to a lot of parts of eastern North America. New York Fern Does Great In Woodland Gardens New York Ferns are hardy border plants perfect for woodlines and near streams and branches. They do exceptionally well and thrive without a lot of care or maintenance. Ferns absorb toxins not only from the air but also from the soil. They are bio-indicators and improve the soil composition. New York Fern Is The Perfect Focal Point Gardens come alive when New York Fern is utilized in them. They are often a focal point when surrounded by blooming perennials or native wildflower plants. Old southern plantations from the 1800s and early 1900s are usually adorned with ferns. Ferns are generally referred to as woody perennials. They live for decades and have a long lifespan due to the reproducing spores.

Air Purifying Plant Package - 5 Sq Ft Moss, 5 Black Eyed Susan and 5 Giant Ostrich Ferns

Air purifying plants can contribute to improving indoor air quality in a more sustainable and aesthetically pleasing way. Moss: Moss can absorb airborne pollutants, such as particulate matter, V.O.C.s (volatile organic compounds), and even heavy metals. Its dense growth and high surface area make it efficient at capturing and retaining these pollutants. Moss is commonly used in green walls and green roofs to help improve air quality in urban areas. Ferns Are Good Air Purifying Plants Ferns: Ferns are known for their ability to remove formaldehyde, a common indoor air pollutant, from the environment. They have large, feathery leaves that can absorb and break down formaldehyde molecules. Boston ferns, in particular, are considered effective in purifying the air. Perennials: Certain perennials, such as peace lilies (Spathiphyllum), are known for their air-purifying properties. Save The Planet With Air Purifying Plants Peace lilies can filter out common indoor pollutants like benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene. They also can increase humidity levels, which can help alleviate respiratory symptoms in dry indoor environments. Moss, ferns, and perennials are natural air purifiers. It's important to note that while these plants have air purifying capabilities, their effectiveness in cleaning the air may vary depending on plant size, species, and environmental conditions. Additionally, their impact is limited to the immediate vicinity of the plant. A combination of plants and mechanical air purifiers may be the most effective solution for effective air purification.

Virginia Bluebell

Virginia Bluebell

Virginia Bluebells have unique bell-shaped flowers that bloom in the spring and summer. The foliage is deep green, and the flowers are deep blue. This low-maintenance perennial is easy to care for and brings beauty to any garden. Virginia Bluebells are sky-blue, bell-shaped flowers that can grow up to 24 inches long. As an early spring riser, they'll brighten your yard with deep purple foliage. It won't be long before the foliage turns green and allows the blue flowers to take over the show. The Flowers Of Virginia Bluebell The floral buds are initially pink but will change colors once this flower opens. Although they're known for having a sky-blue color, they'll occasionally surprise you by becoming pink or white instead. Either way, they'll have five shallow lobes, a central pistil, and five stamens. One of their more unique features is that they mostly grow downward. This suits them, though, as each flower has a long, slender base before opening its five petals. The middle of these flowers will mostly have a white pistil, although it may occasionally be more yellowish. The Leaves Of Virginia Bluebell As previously mentioned, their leaves will initially be purple but then turn gray-green. The alternate leaves can reach a size of up to eight inches, although the majority of them won't pass five inches. Interestingly, they have sessile leaves toward the top of the flower but petiolate leaves toward the bottom. They'll also have smooth margins. By early summer, these flowers will have already revealed themselves and started to go dormant. However, if fertilized, they'll produce small, wrinkled nuts. Inside these nuts are four individual seeds, which help to propagate the species further. Attract Wildlife With Virginia Bluebell Virginia Bluebell flowers have a more deeply set pistil. Fortunately, this makes them an ideal food source for hummingbirds. Additionally, you may see butterflies, skippers, moths, bumblebees, bee flies, and flower flies. Between their sky-blue coloring and all the exciting wildlife they can bring into your yard, they are a big hit with most gardeners. Be aware that they may appear to die permanently the first time they go dormant. Don't worry because these perennials will come back to brighten your yard and delight the local wildlife year after year.
