New Zealand White Clover (Trifolium repens) is a perennial nitrogen fixing legume that reaches about 8-12 inches in height.  New Zealand White Clover is more tolerant of heat and drought than larger clovers, is more vigorous, and tolerates a wide range of soils.


New Zealand White Clover forms a symbiotic relationship with nitrogen fixing soil bacteria called Rhizobium trifolii. Rhizobium bacteria are found in root nodules of clover and other legumes. The Rhizobium bacteria fix atmospheric nitrogen into ammonium that the plant uses for growth and development. The plant in turn provides a suitable growth environment (root nodule) as well as other nutrients such as carbohydrates and protein.

New Zealand White Clover is used as green manure as it fixes up to 170 pounds of nitrogen per acre. Excess nitrogen is released into the surrounding soil where associated plants use it for growth and development. Local Orchards, Valencia County Extension Service, and Homeowners use New Zealand White Clover under their orchards or vineyards to provide natural organic nitrogen and reduce or eliminate the need to buy inorganic nitrogen fertilizers.

New Zealand White Clover is also used as “living mulch”. Like other mulches a surface crop of New Zealand White Clover protects the soil from drying, high temperatures, chokes out weeds, and the flowers attract beneficial insects like honeybees (photo).


New Zealand White Clover will grow on most soils but requires regular moisture for growth. This is one reason it is well suited as an orchard or vineyard cover crop because fruit crops require regular moisture for production.

On The Tenth Day Of Christmas My True Love Gave To Me

And

A Partridge In A Pear Tree

The Friendship Plant, Billbergia nutans or Queen's-Tears is a bromeliad native to South America. This plant makes a wonderful ornamental house plant. It tolerates under-watering, over-watering, heat, and some cold (but not freezing temperatures). The plant has foliage similar to that of a Day Lily with long, green, arching foliage.



The Friendship Plant produces spectacular flowers combining colors
of pink, blue, green, yellow, and purple that bloom in February.


Called the “Friendship Plant,” because it is easily propagated 
allowing it to be shared with friends. 

The Friendship Plant produces small plantlets, called “pups” that are produced from rhizomes at the base by the mother plant. Individual pups can be removed and transplanted into new containers.


These will quickly proliferate to fill their container. You can then divide and transplant them into new colorful containers and gift them to your friends!

The Jujube tree (Ziziphus zizyphus) is also known as the Chinese date, red date, or just Jujube. It grows as a small to medium sized tree reaching 10’ – 20’ tall and wide. It has a very beautiful canopy with glossy-green leaves. Branches usually have spines approximately 1 inch in length. Jujubes produce small flowers in spring and summer on branches throughout the tree. Jujubes normally produce fruit every year since they continue to bloom into June beating the late frosts!

Jujubes produce a small fruit that can be round to oblong or egg shaped. At maturity, fruits are brown skinned and look like small apples. Fruits may be eaten fresh and are similar to an apple but a little less sweet and juicy. After the season’s first frosts the fruits shrivel and turn a darker reddish brown. The shriveled fruits are chewier and typically sweeter, resembling “dates”.




Jujube is a nice fruiting ornamental that grows well in our hot dry climate.

Mulch is woody to semi-woody, difficult to compost organic debris.
Mulch is composed of recognizable plant material like
branches, pine needles, leaves, wood, etc (see photo below).


Mulch helps to conserve water, protects the soil from heat, aridity, wind, weeds, and erosion. Mulch can be considered a blanket or cover for the soil. Mulch adds organic matter to the soil. Apply mulch around trees, shrubs, and other plants to a depth of 3-5 inches. Replace mulch as it decomposes.

Be Generous In Applying Mulch Around Your Landscape Plants As It Is Very Beneficial In Our Hot, Dry, Windy Climate.

Trees That Please Nursery Has Both Bagged and Bulk Mulch Depending Upon Your Landscape Needs.
