Maximilian Sunflower (Helianthus maximiliani ) is in full flower now!

Maximilian Sunflower (Helianthus maximiliani ) is in full flower now across our area.
Maximilian Sunflower makes a bright colorful addition to your garden space from late summer into early fall. 

Be sure to give it plenty of space as it spreads by means of an underground rhizome. Maximilian Sunflower can reach 4’ – 5’ tall and many feet in width.

This plant can be propagated from seed or by digging up the rhizomes during the dormant season. In addition, the rhizomes are edible similar to the to the Jerusalem artichoke.

Consider a Fast Growing Oak For Your Next Shade Tree!

Consider a Fast Growing Oak For Your Next Shade Tree!
More often than not Oak Trees are considered for shade in the landscape because they are thought of as “Slow Growing”.
Trees That Please Nursery will tell you that is not true. There are many fast growing oaks that deserve consideration as shade or specimen trees.
Oak trees have many desirable traits that make them sought after in the landscape. Oaks have deep roots so can be planted near structures. Oaks are long lived. Oaks are hardwoods so are not prone to the broken branches that are common in trees like cottonwoods or willows. Oaks are less prone to insect damage than other trees.

Can I Plant Now?

Great Question!
September days are still hot but nights are beginning to chill down. Yes you can plant now- as long as you can commit to the watering requirements of your newly planted tree or shrub. Generally a new planting requires watering 2-3 times per week. Winter watering is also required at least once monthly to prevent the plants root system from drying out.
Visit the nursery we propagate shade trees, ornamentals, fruit trees, shrubs, perennials, cacti, house plants to name a few.

Our staff can assist you with tree descriptions such as dimensions, root type, fall foliage, soil requirements, watering needs as well as site requirements.
