How To Plant Lilac Bush Cuttings... Done this many times before. Can also be done with roses and many other perennial bushes. Plant in early spring for best outcome. Cover with a glass jar large enough to cover sprout(large pickle jars work best) if possible cut lilac at root from runner an transplant. If not, cut of new spring growth and plant. Jar works as terrarium

Amsonia hubrichtii: 3 seasons of color. Masses of tiny, sky-blue blooms (late spring - early summer). Finely-cut, feathery dark green foliage (Summer). Leaves turn a blazing golden-yellow (Fall). Wow!

At last, Arkansas Blue Star gets the recognition it so richly deserves! Named the 2011 Perennial Plant of the Year, it is suddenly on everyone's wish list. We're pleased to make it available here, and to add our voice to the chorus of praise for this low maintenance, deer- and drought-resistant native perennial. For multi-season interest in color, texture, and form, there's nothing to beat it!Every season brings a new color show with this delightfully easy, hard-working native plant. In late spring and early summer, masses of tiny, sky-blue blooms add cool tones to the sunny garden. In summer, the finely-cut, feathery dark green foliage forms a rich backdrop for your showy annuals and perennials. And in fall, the leaves turn a blazing golden-yellow that rivals Japanese Maples for intensity and beauty!Arkansas Blue Star Flower is a modest little plant, just 3 feet tall and 4 feet wide, with a bushy, unfussy habit that gives little hint of the riches it has in store for you. A good neighbor in the border or bed (it is not invasive, but can hold its own with competing roots), it is especially attractive planted among ornamental grasses and in front of fragrant shrubs such as Clethra 'Ruby Spice,' which not only shares its sweet scent with Amsonia but also participate in the fall foliage show! Content in any well-drained soil receiving full sun to light shade, Arkansas Blue Star Flower tolerates dry soil and drought once established. It is generally unpalatable to deer, but butterflies and bees simply cannot get enough. Soft to the touch, billowy and beautiful, is an all-season investment in the landscape. Plant several -- spacing them about 3 feet apart -- for a glorious ribbon of fall color! Zones 5-9.

Each cluster of flowers that the Vitex produces has dense rings of lavender blue flowers and each cluster can range from 8 to 12 inches long.The Vitex can tolerate most soil conditions, provided they are well drained, and will flourish in full sun

-Vitex Tree (or Chaste Tree) / ATTRACTS: Hummingbirds. Plant with Monkey Flower which also attracts Hummingbirds.
Vitex tree, or Chaste tree. It is a deciduous shrub that is commonly trimmed into a small tree. This fast growing shrub gets to an average size of 15′ high by 15′ wide. This sun loving shrub will bloom all summer long until early fall. Normal bloom times in North Texas are from May to September. It is a well adapted plant for most landscapes in Texas, but loves well drained soil and needs full sun to get the best blooms. The most common bloom color is lavender. Will it work in Ohio's climate?

How to Grow Asparagus-If you love asparagus and want to grow some yourself, waste no time in getting started. Even with the best of care, an asparagus bed won't hit its stride for several years. But once that happens, the bed will produce an abundant crop of spears spring after spring for at least the next 20 to 30 years.

How to Grow Asparagus -Get it right and crops will grow for 20 years. You can plant asparagus in the ground, but it really thrives when planted in a raised bed. A 2x8 raised Bed holds about 14-16 asparagus plants — or "crowns" — planted in a staggered fashion about a foot apart.
