Tennessee Ostrich Fern (Glade)

Tennessee Ostrich Fern (Glade)

The Tennessee ostrich fern's large, majestic fronds are its most unique characteristic. Named for their resemblance to an ostrich feather, the fronds unfurl from tight fiddleheads to reveal lush, filly plumes.This fern will require ample moisture, full shade to partial sun and rich soil. Deer tend to prefer tastier plants, meaning they will avoid the ferns. Smaller ostrich ferns thrive in a large planter or container on a deck or balcony, provided they are not in full sunlight. The ferns are perennials, so they can be expected to grow in lawns or gardens year after year. Their hardiness makes them ideal for difficult-to-plant regions, including those that receive frost and snow in the winter. The Plant's Growth This fern produces a new set of new fronds, called crowns, each year surrounding the previous year's growth. This means that the fern will consistenly grow in size year after year. Once the fern reaches its desired size, it can be easily divided by splitting the root ball and replanting each half. If you're a fan of edible foliage, the fern's young leaves, called fiddleheads, are considered a delicacy and can be cooked or steamed. Try them in a recipe as a replacement for other bitter greens like swiss chard. Tennessee Ostrich Fern Uses The fern can be expected to grow to between 3 and 6 feet with lush, green fronds. They make an ideal backdrop for annual flowering plants and are large enough to be used to delineate different sections of a landscape. Fern fronds can also be used to provide lush green color and texture to cut flower bouquets and arrangements.

They are green in color. They are harvested for primary use as a vegetable. Before opening and reaching its full height early in the season, they are harvested by cutting them fairly close to the ground. Fiddlehead Fern Bloom Time They bloom in the spring, where they can then be foraged or commercially harvested, thus making them seasonally available.

It is about two weeks in a given area. There are three good identifying characteristics. The stem is smooth and green. They have a deep groove on the inside of the stem, shaped much like the letter 'U.' Lastly, they will have a brown, paper-like covering when just emerging from the crown. Planting This Fern When it comes to planting your own, average to fertile soil is key. All the better if the soil is humus rich and in the range of neutral to acidic. They prefer light or partial shade, but can handle full shade or full sun if the dirt is damp enough. It is critical that they have moisture. Scorching of the leaves may occur if the soil happens to not be moist enough. In the wild, they are found growing by rivers and streams. That gives way to the idea of having a woodland style garden that is exceptionally moist. If you happen to have a garden bed near a downspout for your gutter, you will find that they thrive quite well there.  Shop Garden Plants Nursery Today The Fiddlehead Ferns form a circular cluster of feathery fronds that are slightly arching. They are stiff, brown, fertile fronds that are covered in reproductive spores. They stick up the center of the cluster in late summer and persist well through the winter.

Nikko Blue Hydrangea

Nikko Blue Hydrangea

The stunning Nikko Blue Hydrangea is a shrub that grows its clusters in semi-shaded areas. The vibrant blue flowers bloom with handsome green foliage, usually on old wood. Sometimes, you will see these deciduous flowers bloom with a pink, purple, or white hue instead of blue. Nikko Blue Hydrangea Care While many people might consider the shrub to be a "showy" plant, that does not make it any less beautiful. It is fairly fast-growing and easy to maintain with its best bloom time in late spring or early summer. Plan to water regularly as a way to keep the soil moist (i.e., a couple of times a week). Good companion plants include Holly, Rose of Sharon, Azaleas, and Sweetspires. If left to its own devices, this native Japanese plant can reach four to six feet tall and wide in no time. It typically grows at a rate of approximately 24 inches per year. Its Soil and Water Conditions This kind of shrub likes moist soil that drains well. The most important thing to consider though is the soil's acidity or lack thereof, which ultimately plays a big role in determining bloom color. More acidic soil produces that vibrant blue color, but pink appears with more alkaline mixtures. You can raise acidity by adding sphagnum peat moss to the soil or nitrogen fertilizer. When fully grown, some hydrangeas can still grow in temperatures as frigid as 32 degrees Fahrenheit. That said, newer, younger plants need to be grown in temperatures no lower than 35 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. In general, these plants like mid to high humidity at any age, growing particularly well in summer. Too much of a dry climate, however, like what you might find in a desert, can make the plant wither and droop. Details on Pruning The Shrub Nikki blue hydrangeas require very little pruning. If you need to prune or cut your plant back, plan to do so before early fall and late summer to avoid cutting set buds or blooms. Cutting set buds could mean you don't grow flowers the following year. Dead branches, on the other hand, can be trimmed at any time. Buy Today At Garden Plant Nursery

Cushion Moss

Cushion Moss

Cushion moss has a cushion-like appearance that comes from growing thick and rounded, but the term “cushion,” actually refers to woody plants that are low growing, spreading like mats and putting down deep tap roots. The color of these plants is a light green that has a silvery-white overlay to it. Cushion Moss Lives For Hundreds Of Years It grows in subarctic, arctic, subalpine, and alpine environments all around the world. They evolved from many different plant families that also endured harsh growing environments. New plants on windy slopes in exposed Arctic tundra are not common. Many of the plants that exist there are several hundred years old. These plants are several years old before they reproduce. It only grows when the climate is warm enough, and the sun is available. They typically grow in areas that have rocky or sandy soils they drain water off rapidly, which makes them colonizers of bare habitat. They particularly like to grow in the windy, harsh alpine slopes, and they become denser and smaller with higher elevation. This Moss Loves Water Obtaining water is challenging where these plants grow, so they grow an extensive root system, taproots that grow about two feet underground. Water that comes to the alpine or subalpine regions comes from melted snow that seeps through shallow soil. The roots grow deep so as to retain water and sustain the plants through dry periods. The density of the cushion above also deters loss of water. The tightly packed foliage and stems trap heat from the sun and cause them to warm up by several degrees. The thick matted hairs on them also trap and heat the air that is caught there. Garden Plants Nursery Has Lots To Choose From Cushion Moss sometimes have hundreds of small flowers on them, which attract pollinators during a short growing season and over long distances. Domestically, they are commonly used in terrariums and in decorative gardens.

There are, however, some that it will usually ignore in favor of tastier treats. So, while there are no guarantees, here are five beautiful, deer-resistant plants.

Deer Resistant Plants

If you live in the south, you are familiar with hydrangeas. But did you know that they typically won't touch them? The showy blooms of the hydrangea shrub prefer partial shade and plenty of water.

Ferns

Several types of ferns are a real turn-off for deer! Try a Haysented fern, or for a burst of color, a Christmas Fern. These shade-loving ones require plenty of water. They come in multiple shades of green and in a variety of shapes and textures.

Daffodils

Daffodils are deer-resistant flowers that love the sun! The bulbs during the fall and watch them bloom in early spring. The cheerful blooms will return year after year. Privet Hedges are a great investment. They are hardy through zone 7 and, if left alone, can grow up to twelve feet high. Their glossy leaves and tiny, white springtime flowers make this an attractive hedge. Privet Hedges prefer full sun or partial shade.

Magnolia Trees

The fragrant, white flowers of the magnolia tree contrast with the glossy, dark green leaves. This tree is a showstopper. It usually leaves this tree alone, but the Magnolia is not a fast-growing tree. With a little patience, this tree can become the centerpiece of your yard.

Fulfill All Your Garden Needs With Garden Plants Nursery
