Most Recent Plants

Annuals

Annual plants are a category of botanical species that complete their entire life cycle within a single year, from germination to seed production. These plants are known for their relatively short lifespan and are often characterized by rapid growth and profuse flowering during the growing season. Annuals play a crucial role in ecosystem dynamics, as they can colonize disturbed or temporary habitats, providing bursts of vibrant color and serving as a vital food source for pollinators. Gardeners frequently cultivate annuals for their diverse and showy blooms, making them a popular choice for creating seasonal displays and adding variety to landscapes.

Bulbs, Rhizomes, and Tubers

Bulbs are not just for spring, though a lot of early flowering popular spring flowers are bulbs! In fact, there are several categories bulbs, corm, tuber, tuberous root, and rhizomes. A true bulb like a hyacinth, tulip, or daffodil usually looks a lot like an onion and has a protective layer that protects it from drying but some bulbs such as lilies do not and you have to be more careful with them. Most bulbs are more rounded with a flat bottom where the roots grow, true bulbs have rings however if some of the features are missing then you don’t have a true bulb but a corm.

Corms are synonymous with rhizomes or tuberous roots. Some of the better-known flowers in this category include Crocus, Gladiolas, and Freesias. Unlike bulbs, corms do not have rings like onions. And of course, tubers are the other category, flowers or plants like Begonias and Cyclamens are tubers that don’t have the outer cover for protection nor the flat base or rings, so it becomes difficult to distinguish the top and the bottom of a tuber. And finally, rhizomes are stems that grow sideways and store food, iris, and ginger are forms of rhizomes.

 

Climbers

Climbers are truly unique in creating landscape features they can grow over fences and walls. They create unique tunnels and archways and are used to cover unsightly features. Usually, they take up very little space on the ground and create a large cover of green and many blossoming varieties of climbers add incredible color during their flowering season. There are also many fragrant blossoming climbers that also add another dimension to your experience in the garden. Many favorite climbers include Roses, Clematis, Wisteria, Bougainvillea, and Ivy. Plants like Honeysuckle and Wisteria and many climbing roses are very fragrant.

Perennials

Perennials are probably the most popular and widely used group of plants. They are usually referred to as plants that live longer than two years. And most commonly in two forms herbaceous those that die down to the roots in colder climates and regrow in spring and evergreen which do retain their stems and leaves. Usually, most perennial plants are softwood which differentiates them from shrubs and trees which are also technically perennials. A mixture of Perennials and annual plants can give you a nice combination for borders where you can vary the annuals each year whereas the perennials will come back each year.

Shrubs

Shrubs are woody plants and differ from trees by the fact that they have several stems. Usually, they are shorter than trees and are dense toward the ground rather than high up. Some plants such as lavender, roses, and such are considered formally subshrubs.

Trees

Trees are long-lived woody plants that continue to grow and reproduce for many years. They have a strong trunk, branches, and deep roots, providing stability. Trees vary in size, shape, and species, and they play a crucial role in ecosystems by offering shade, shelter, oxygen, and resources like timber and fruits.

Aquatic Plants

Aquatic plants, also known as water plants, are specialized plants that thrive in aquatic environments such as lakes, ponds, rivers, and wetlands. They have adapted to grow either partially or fully submerged in water. Aquatic plants display a remarkable variety of forms, ranging from delicate floating plants to rooted plants with submerged leaves and stems. These plants serve important ecological functions, such as oxygenating the water, providing shelter and food for aquatic organisms, and helping to maintain water quality by filtering pollutants. They also contribute to the aesthetic appeal of aquatic habitats with their vibrant flowers, attractive foliage, and interesting textures. Whether they are water lilies, lotuses, or submerged grasses, aquatic plants add beauty and contribute to the overall health and balance of aquatic ecosystems.
