Tree & Planting Information
When Autumn arrives and the days are shorter, deciduous trees, plants, and shrubs decrease chlorophyll pigment production. This will result in the leaves changing colors. The leaves are also no longer producing food to grow and are showing signs of shutting down, which leads to discoloration, leaf curling, and leaf spot.
In this series of posts, we'll be highlighting the best-looking plants on our nursery each week. We'll provide you with information about each plant and a nice picture of it, too. This week, we'll be taking a look at the Coral Magic Crape Myrtle and the Ichi Ki Kei Jiro Persimmon.
Persimmon trees are a unique option for those interested in growing fruit trees on their property. These deciduous trees can produce a large amount of persimmons, a fruit that might not be well known to Americans, but is actually the national fruit of Japan.
