Found throughout North America, this little grass in the foreground is known for its unique seed head which waves like a flag. This select variety has a particularly angled, blonde seedhead atop a thin stalk, creating the graceful effect of a floating texture. Being one of the smaller prairie grasses native from the Rockies to the east, it is extremely hardy and drought tolerant requiring very little water to look great in summer, fall and winter. Do you know what it is?

Koai'a is a great dry forest community builder!

When planted on the predominantly barren a'a flows of Waikoloa, koai'a is quick to start producing leaf litter and building up soil!

Here we can see both true leaves and phyllodes as they begin breaking down.

From my garden- sweet lavender #plantoftheweek #plantlife #plantbased #lavender #garden

Happy Wednesday plant lovers! This week's featured plant is the Helianthus Annuus also known as the Sunflower, and is one of our favorites here at Pine Brook. ๐ŸŒป These bright and beautiful flowers are known for not only the view but also for their production of food including sunflower seeds and oils which are edible, and can also be used for bird feed! A fun fact about the sunflower is that they resemble the sun, thus turning and facing the sun as it blooms! They need full sun and moist, well-drained soil, so call now if you would like help planting these beautiful flowers! Pine Brook looks forward to planting with you! ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒป #pinebrooklandscapenursery #pinebrook #landscape #landscapearchitect #landscapingdesign #landscapelovers #landscaping #localbusiness #flowers #plants #planting #summer #sunflower #nature #newjersey #plantoftheweek

Koai'a phyllode formation!

Here is a perfect example to show the differences between the true (young) leaves of koai'a and the formation of these phyllodes (often called the mature leaves). The compound leaves that you see in the picture are the true leaves. The stem that they are attached to is now flattening out and becoming a photosynthetic structure called a phyllode! As the plant matures the true leaves will fall away and only the phyllodes we'll be visible.

These structures help both koa and koai'a retain moisture and thrive when resources are scarce!

#PlantOfTheWeek:
Bottlebrush Buckeye โ€“ Aesculus parviflora

Aesculus parviflora is commonly called bottlebrush buckeye in recognition of the resemblance it has to its more famous relative horse chestnut, this shrub often goes by the common name โ€œdwarf horse chestnutโ€. A. parviflora is a species native to the open woodlands of the southeastern United States.

A. parviflora is a dense, mounded, suckering, deciduous, multi-stemmed shrub, which typically grows 6 to 12 feet or 1.8 to 3.6 metres tall, featuring palmate dark green leaves of five to seven leaflets and erect, showy, cylindrical panicles of tubular white flowers with noticeable red anthers and pinkish filaments. Early to mid-summer blooms can be spectacular as the flowers give way to glossy, inedible pear-shaped nuts (buckeyes). Also of note, hummingbirds, butterflies and other pollinators embrace the blooms. In autumn the foliage of A. parviflora turns attractive shades of yellow.
A. parviflora is the recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society, as well as numerous awards and medals from horticultural societies within North America. This particular shrub was a favourite of Dr. Leslie Laking, a Director at Royal Botanical Gardens from 1947 to 1981, and was relocated with special care and attention after the redesign of the Rock Garden in 2014.

On your next visit to Royal Botanical Gardens, discover Aesculus parviflora in the Rock Gardenโ€™s lower garden area.

Summer in full sultry swing with Heleniums accenting everything else in the garden this week

Dryopteris filix-mas is a native fern that youโ€™ll recognise from your walks through woodland. It loves damp shade and is flourishing in our 5LT pots in our new shade tunnel. A fantastic plant for tricky shady areas in your garden, where it will reach 1m in height when happy.

Aubrieta

Thereโ€™s much to be said for this evergreen perennial, which in spring produces cascades of flowers in purple, blue, pink or red to carpet raised beds and stone walls.

#Gardening #Plants #Flowers

It's western pasque flower (Anemone occidentlis). Resembling giant fuzzy alien buttercups, these are among the first flowers to greet the summer sun after the snow melts in the alpine tundra of the Cascades. They are also easily identified by their shaggy seed heads which give rise to another of this plant's common names: moptop.

En af vores favorit krydderurter i Plantula er mynte.
Dyrkning af mynte er heldigvis nemt! Alle typer mynte er hurtigt voksende men pladskrรฆvende og spreder sig. Giv dem god plads til at vokse i eller plant dem i krukker bรฅde ude og inde, sรฅ de ikke โ€kvรฆlerโ€ andre planter.
Mynten tilfรธrer dit uderum / dit hjem en frisk aroma og blomstrer med fine, smรฅ blomstre fra juni til september. ๐ŸŒฑ
Mynten kan bruges til mange retter. Frisk mynte gรฅr godt med lam, fisk og grรธntsager, men er ogsรฅ velegnet i te, smoothies, juicer, salater og i sommercocktails. ๐ŸŒฟ
Tรธrrede mynte er godt for fordรธjelsen.๐Ÿƒ
