Paw Paw Tree (Asimina triloba) Paw Paw Tree: Asimina triloba, or the paw paw tree, is an unfussy North American native species. It grows in various soil types and across most USDA growing zones. Unlike many fruiting trees, the tree performs well in shady or semi-shade locations. Gardeners prize the tree for its good looks and the large, delicious fruit it bears. The tree displays large, emerald green leaves in the summertime, turning a bright yellow in the fall. The tree reaches approximately twenty feet high at maturity, making it a very manageable size for most. The Striking Appearance of the Paw Paw Tree The paw paw tree, although relatively small in stature, is big in style. It has a full, thick canopy and dark green, somewhat glossy leaves that sway gracefully from their stems. This tree performs well in woodland or naturalized areas, as it will thrive in shaded or semi-shaded conditions. It will also tolerate several hours of sunshine daily–just keep an eye on the moisture. This tree attracts birds, who find security in the dense leaves, butterflies, and other small mammals. A tree house offers an entire ecosystem that you'll enjoy watching. Springtime brings on the six-petaled purple flowers. You can harvest paw paws sometime between the latest days of summer to early autumn. Asimina triloba Creates an Interesting Fruit Paw paw fruit is heavy and grows into an oval shape. Although the outside of the fruit resembles a tropical mango (and some folks mistakenly refer to it as such), they are entirely different species. The mango tree is tropical and grows only in sub-tropical and tropical climates. However, this tree grows in cool and moist USDA growing regions in the United States. The green fruit ripens on the branches and is ready to harvest when they are slightly soft and emit a fruity aroma. Some compare the fruit's taste to a blend of banana and pineapple--it has a smooth, custard-like texture and does not stay fresh for long after picking. Order Your Paw Paw Tree From TN Nursery

The American persimmon tree will thrive in poor soil, hot or dry conditions, or in an urban garden. As long as you provide plenty of sunshine, it will do well. The Sweet Taste of Persimmons Persimmon fruit is ovate, with an appearance similar to a peach or nectarine. They are sweet, juicy, and delicious.

Wild Strawberry Plant$4.69
Wild Strawberry Plants Are Worth Growing Wild Strawberry: Sometimes, the simplest things in life can offer the most extraordinary pleasure--the wild strawberry plant is one example of this. The North American native plant often creeps up in the wild in the most unexpected places--along a gravelly roadway, at the edge of a wooded area, or in the middle of the lawn.

Instead of hoping to find a wild strawberry or two in the late spring, you can grow them and be confident you will get to enjoy their sweet, juicy goodness.

Wild Strawberry Plant Makes a Lush Green Ground Cover Not only do wild strawberries provide you with tasty berries, but the plants also make an attractive ground cover. Wild strawberry plants have trifoliate, dark green leaves. The flowering stem shows off with five-petal white flowers with a yellow center in the late spring. The flowers emit a lightly floral aroma that attracts bees and pollinators to your yard. Of course, the blossoms later give birth to beautiful red berries. The plants spread quickly, producing runners from the root system's crown. The runners dig into the earth nearby and create a new plant; some gardeners call this seedling a daughter plant. This cycle continues all season long, forming a dense mat of dark green foliage that stays green through the fall. The plants go dormant during the cold, shorter days of late fall and winter, and wake up in early spring. It's Easy to Grow Wild Strawberry Plants Besides being prolific, the wild strawberry plant is easy to grow. It thrives in most growing zones in the continental United States and requires nothing more than full sun or partial sun, springtime fertilizer, and water if you experience drought.

Blackberry Plant Blackberry Plant: If you have a partially wooded yard with plentiful sunshine or mixed shade spots, a blackberry plant might make an excellent addition. When customers call TN Nursery for advice on easy-care fruit-bearing options, we often suggest the blackberry plant. Unlike fruit trees, which can take several years to bear fruit, the blackberry plant might give you a few berries in the first season, ramping up production season after season until year three. Once mature, it will supply you with ten to twenty pounds of berries for the next twenty to twenty-five years. The Rustic Charm of a Blackberry Plant The blackberry plant grows in brambles or thickets, thriving in sunny clearings at the edges of woods or a forest. The North American native plant thrives in full sun or partial sun--a bright spot is a requirement for producing plump and luscious berries. The first year you plant your blackberry plant, it will develop a few clusters of petite, pretty white flowers. Those flowers may produce a handful of berries during the first season. The blooms will produce small white berries that plump up as they mature. The berries appear white at first, then reddening to an almost burgundy color and eventually a rich violet to black. Ripe blackberries are juicy, sweet, and plump. As the plant matures, it grows wider and taller, topping at around six feet. They bring lazy summer days and fresh pies (or scrumptious cobblers) to mind. Can't you imagine the sweet juices drizzling down your chin as you bite into a lush berry? How to Grow a Blackberry Plant The blackberry plant requires a full-sun to partial-sun location for the berries to develop and ripen fully. Blackberry plants need approximately one inch of water weekly, especially as the blossoms and berries develop. That's because the berry contains a high water content. You will not need to assist your plant if your region receives ample weekly rainfall. However, gardeners in arid locations must help the blackberry plant by supplying water. Although it likes moisture, the blackberry plant does not like wet feet. Instead, it prefers soil that drains relatively quickly. You'll also need to fertilize it in the springtime as the blossoms develop--that food will nourish the plant and help it produce abundantly.

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.
