Golden Vietnamese Cypress (Xanthocyparis vietnamensis) in Fayetteville Springdale Rogers Bentonville AR Arkansas AR at Westwood Gardens

It is the Purple-leaf hazel, or Corylus maxima ‘Purpurea’. This plant has been awarded the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit.

Chinese Yellow Catalpa. Chinese Yellow Catalpa. Yellow catalpa. Catalpa, or Catalpa bignonioides is a tree sometimes known as Indian bean tree.

Yellow catalpa

It is native to the southeastern United States where Europeans first found the tree growing in the fields of the Cherokee tribes who called it Catalpa. However, its vitality enables it to flourish almost anywhere in the temperate world including southernmost Canada. Any Catalpa is a bold textural statement with four to eight inch leaves giving it a wonderful, coarse texture. And it has panicles of showy white flowers as long as twelve inches. From a distance they look like so many white bouquets covering the tree in late spring-early summer but closer inspection shows them to be individually complex and beautiful. The species grows 40 to 50 feet and has a lifespan of 60 years. Bhutan pine. The Bhutan pine, also known as the Weeping Himalayan pine, is an upright tree that gradually reaches 30 to 50 feet with a spread of 30 to 40 feet, a size suitable to most gardens.

No surprise then that it makes the favourites list of so many connoisseurs. It will work as a specimen, sitting prominently alone, or as a practical screen or windbreak, shielding a structure or lining a drive. It will grow at a medium to fast rate in areas with short summers that are not too hot, meaning it will thrive in the upper US, parts of Canada, the UK and temperate Australia and New Zealand. 7 Benefits of Robinia pseudoacacia ‘Frisia’ – Why I Changed My Scathing Review.

7 Benefits of Robinia pseudoacacia ‘Frisia’ – Why I Changed My Scathing Review

It was about how I fell in love with a Golden locust some 2o plus years ago when I first saw it in London. How I knew I was going to find a place in my garden for it at the right time and was able to do so after a major renovation. How I was swept away by my vision of what the end result would be.

Choose the proper planting time.A. In warmer climate zones (about zone 5 or 6 and higher) where the ground doesn't commonly stay frozen through most of the winter, most trees and shrubs can be planted at anytime between mid fall (after leaf drop) and early spring (before bud-break) as long as the ground is not frozen. Fall is probably the optimal time for many trees and shrubs because the root system has a longer time to become established before the plant has to deal with the stress of summer heat. Potted plants which are not potbound, and therefore do not require significant root manipulation, can be planted even in mid summer without much risk.

Shagbark hickory trees (Carya ovata) are well known to be desirable for shade, fall color, tasty nuts, and desirable timber, but perhaps their most valuable use is not well known. Mature shagbark hickory trees are natural roost sites for bats, and especially desirable as maternity roosts. Quality roost sites are key to maintaining and increasing a bat population, which in turn provides an effective natural control of mosquitoes and other night flying pests.

A bat house generally consists of one or more narrow chambers into which the bat may enter at the bottom, placed in a location with ample solar heating and reasonable protection from predators. A well pruned shagbark hickory essentially makes bat houses on the sides of the trunk. The bark “shags” off at the top and bottom leaving the middle quite firmly attached. Shagbark hickories have a large tap root that makes it difficult to transplant after the tree is more than 2 or 3 years old.
