Asclepias tuberosa is an easy-to-manage plant from seed and may self-seed in the landscape once established. It requires only a little care from you, including occasional fertilizing, possible aphid control, and deadheading the spent blossoms. Butterfly weed is also prized for its cut flowers, making it a popular choice for dried floral arrangements. The flowers also produce attractive seed pods. Like the spent blossoms, crafters frequently use those seeds to add interest and texture to wreaths and dried flower arrangements. Butterfly weed or Asclepias tuberosa Is an Easy-Care Option. Not only is Asclepias tuberosa a beauty, but it's also drought-tolerant and heat-tolerant, making it hardy in semi-arid regions. Finally, butterfly weed is deer-resist and rabbit-resistant. That means it is not a first-choice dining option for the local deer and rabbits. Because herbivore animals have a sharp sense of smell, they usually prefer less fragrant plants. Thus, they will eat your plant only if they lack fewer aromatic options. Butterfly Weed is available to order today at TN Nursery Are you ready to plant the butterfly garden of your dreams?

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

Milkweed Plants: Butterfly gardening at its best with this type of plant, The regal monarch butterfly recently landed on the endangered species list. But one action you can take to help restore their numbers is adding milkweed (Asclepias incarnata) plants to your garden. Swamp Milkweed Could Save the Monarch Butterfly This North American native species nourishes the monarch butterfly's larvae. Indeed, milkweed is the only plant that can give its eggs, larvae and newly hatched caterpillars protection from predators and the sustenance they need. Since monarch butterflies only exist on the North American continent, from Canada to Mexico, it makes sense that they adapted along with this once-abundant native plant. As America grew from the east coast, large swaths of natural meadows fell victim to land clearing for development. Most likely unknowingly to the earliest developers, they destroyed the food necessary for the monarch to raise their young. Scientists placed monarchs on the endangered list with one bright spot. If every gardener across North America plants milkweed, there is still hope. We can reverse this cycle by restoring the habitat the monarch butterfly needs for its survival. Besides being the nectar that could save the monarchs, milkweed is a grand flower that deserves a sunny spot in your garden. Swamp Milkweed - Asclepias Incarnata Plant care and maintenance A full-grown Asclepias incarnata plant can reach a stately height of almost five feet. You may wonder how the weight of the long, narrow, willow-like leaves, tall stalks, and flowers don't topple the plant. Don't worry--the long taproot will keep Asclepias incarnata well-secured all season long. Furthermore, the long taproots of the plant will help keep your soil loosened for proper water and nutrient absorption. The gorgeous cotton candy flowers bloom in vibrant pink, purple, and lavender hues. Milkweed gains that fluffy appearance as many small, vanilla-scented flowers form around a central flower in a clustered head. The perennial plants seed themselves, forming inside pods that dry out in the summer heat and then burst open to reproduce the following season. They are easy-growing plants that want nothing more than a full-sun location, well-amended soil, and moisture--but with good drainage. The name milkweed refers to the white, sticky fluid you would see if you break off a stem. Do Your Part to Save Monarch Butterflies…Order Swamp Milkweed Today Swamp Milkweed is available online at TN Nursery Please feel free to order milkweed today--the existence of monarch butterflies depends on concerned gardeners like you.

BAMBOO PLANT - Arundinaria Gigantea Bamboo plants have two types of species that are often in use within residential landscapes. These plants increase by releasing underground runners, also known as rhizomes, which might emerge from the parent plant at a distance from the original location. They bridge those gaps between plants more quickly, making them perfect for use as screens, hedges, and the trendy open groove effect. Because the rhizomes develop horizontally at a depth of roughly 2 to 18 inches, it is possible to keep their growth under control. It can produce stunning thick hedges by employing a rhizome barrier to limit this subsurface expansion. Many of these plants can withstand the cold. The experience of strolling across a large, open grove full of these tall plants is unlike anything else. They are also helpful for various applications, including specimen groves, perennial security screens, windbreaks, noise and dust shields, groundcovers, and erosion management. They are also widely known for producing a tropical impression in a usually moderate or even frigid environment. The most effective method of controlling this plant is maintaining a groomed path around the planting. This route's minimum width should equal the maximum possible height of this species selected for the given area, if not more. Undoubtedly, this may not be practicable at all times, and the confinement methods available will vary according to the location. You may contain these plants using techniques such as rhizome barriers or rhizome trimming, both of which need continuous monitoring to be effective. Natural barriers such as everlasting waterbodies and dense darkness may also aid this purpose. Bamboo Plant is Easily Grown They are garden plants of the evergreen variety. They are easy to care for and do not require a lot of water. They are used in gardens in many ways and add an exotic feel to any backyard; They can be used as a hedge or screen to add privacy to your yard or in any other garden arrangements. They can grow in almost any climate and can last for many years. They come in a wide range of sizes, including dwarf and giant-sized. Bamboo requires very little maintenance These plants can also be grown in small containers inside and outside. Placing a number of them in your landscaping will help you to showcase your other garden plants. They are also known by many cultures to bring luck to their owners. They have also been grown to become bonsai trees. The stems are easily shaped and can be pruned to interlace. You can also prune bamboo trees back into topiaries. The under leaves are removed, leaving only clumps of leaves at the top. When planting bamboo trees as a screen, they should be planted in the area approximately 2 to 3 feet apart. That allows them to spread out and create the coverage you need. Pruning it back will stop further growth into areas you do not want. Once they have been planted, they will require very little maintenance. Bamboo is For Sale at Tennessee Wholesale Nursery with Low Prices and Fast Shipping
