Rusty Black Haw Viburnum

Rusty Black Haw, a plant indigenous to Eastern to Central Texas, can be found primarily in outlying wooded areas and streams. It tends to grow differently depending on the environment. Rusty Black Haw can become a shrub averaging about 10 feet or even a tiny 30-foot tree. Though the plant tends to increase in brush areas, it is most visually appealing when growing entirely in the sun. When it blooms, it has glossy bright green leave and clusters of flowers. In the spring, these flowers are white, but in the fall, it grows a blue fruit. Sometimes, the leaves also tend to change to a more pink or purple shade in the fall as well. When growing in a more shaded, moist area, Rusty Black Haw tends to be just a single tree with maybe a few growing in the near field. A city with less rainfall can be found in groves of up to about 100 plants. Tn Nursery sells thousands of these shrubs for wetland mitigation plantings.

Make Your Insecticides or Pest Repellents

Making your insecticides or pest repellents for your garden is more organic and, at the same time, saves you more money. In a plastic spray bottle, add three to four drops of liquid soap and fill it up with water. This homemade pest repellent can help eradicate various bugs, white cabbage caterpillars, black fly, and greenfly. Use it on the affected garden plants until the pests are gone. Just make sure to keep the spray bottle away for children’s reach and label it appropriately.
