Witch Hazel Witch Hazel is a shrub or small tree native to the North American, European, and Asian continents. It can grow as tall as twenty-five feet high, but many gardeners prune them into a lower, shrub-like appearance. Others adore this shrub because it flowers late in the fall--when an unexpected pop of vibrant yellow color turns heads. It's a relatively fast grower, with a rapid growth rate of two to three feet per growing season. When gardeners reach out to TN Nursery seeking advice on a low but dense shrub to define their property line, we often recommend witch hazel. How to Use Witch Hazel in Your Garden Witch hazel is a cold-hardy, drought-hardy, deer-resistant shrub. It grows well across most of the contiguous United States, regardless of soil type. When you plant it, find a partially sunny location and amend the soil with peat moss or mulch to give it the organic matter it needs. After you establish the plant, it requires little care other than occasional fertilizing. Some gardeners let witch hazel grow to its full height, especially when they want privacy or to block an unsightly view. However, others will groom it into a long, low hedge around a home's foundation or in a formal garden setting. Witch Hazel Is a Highly Attractive Shrub or Tree Witch hazel has light brown, smooth bark that forms an intriguing zig-zag pattern. Leaves unfurl and bring a refreshing dose of green in the early springtime. Each leaf is small, approximately four inches long, oval-shaped, and has slight toothiness along the edges. The greenery is lovely to behold all spring and summer. But the crowning glory occurs at the end of the season. In late fall, profuse amounts of four- to five-petalled, cheerful yellow flowers appear. Each petal is ribbon-like with an interesting crinkled texture.

Wisteria Wisteria: A deciduous flowering tree with a distinctly floral aroma, wisteria plants can grow as high as ten to twenty feet with sturdy support. Wisteria sinensis is an Asian native species, frequently found growing naturally in the woods and natural areas throughout the United States. You can plant wisteria in either full sunshine or partially sunny conditions, with organics like hardwood mulch, peat moss, or shredded leaves added to loose soil. This vine is rugged: drought-tolerant and cold-tolerant. Care is minimal, including trimming to guide the growth or to remove frost damage. Although some people describe wisteria flowers as purple, TN Nursery explains to customers that they are usually closer to blue with a slight tinge of purple. Where to Plant Wisteria Plants Wisteria is a prolific bloomer in the last weeks of spring. It might take two seasons or so for you to see them on full display, but these abundant, lush flowers are well worth the wait! Wisteria will grow to form clusters or thickets, creating dense foliage after blossoming. Here are three ways you can use this hardy plant: Create a privacy hedge: If you have close neighbors, install a tall support structure and plant wisteria to protect your privacy. Barrier hedge: Do you have pedestrians use your yard as a cut-through? Wisteria will grow into a thick barrier hedge. Cover an old, unsightly building: A wisteria plant can quickly cover an unattractive barn or shed--make it a charming, rustic focal point instead of a tear-down project. Wisteria prefers full sun or partial sunshine; it will tolerate shade, although you will not get profuse blossoms. The Graceful and Elegant Look of Wisteria The brown stem of wisteria will form into lovely, twisted shapes as they wanter into a vine. You can "train" it to grow straighter with some time and patience. Wisteria leaves are green and elliptical, growing in an alternative pattern. They are compound and grow in clusters of about seven to fifteen leaflets. Leaves are approximately six inches long. The flowers of the wisteria will stop you in their tracks with beauty. Tiny pea-shaped blue-violet flowers emerge in enormous, gracefully drooping clusters. They appear almost like delicate bunches of grapes. The scent is heavenly!

Red Hibiscus Syriacus Is a Gardener's Favorite Species Prolific flowers appear on the Red Hibiscus Syriacus by the middle of summer. In the warmest climates, the blossoms might continue well into the autumn. The flowers are large, intense coral-red, up to four inches, and showy. They have a lovely double layer of five velvety petals. The flower's center is golden yellow or orange, creating a stunning, warm tonal effect against the red petals. Most often, the blossoms only live for one day, with a new replacement emerging right behind. The foliage of this shrub is beautiful. It features dark green, glossy leaves with coarse teeth around the margins—leaves alternate along the stem.
