Schuettes Oak | Zone 3 - 9. This fast growing Oak (up to 3 times quicker than other swamp oaks) is a hybrid cross between Swamp White Oak and Bur Oak. They produce a sweet acorn in abundance (starting as early as 4 ft. tall) which will only draw the Whitetail out. Grows upwards of 70 ft. with 40 ft. spread. Will grow in wet areas as well as upland areas.
Myrtillocactus is a fast-growing candelabra-shaped cactus that grows 15' tall. And it's blue, glowy blue, and makes magenta berries so sweet that they're grown as a crop in Mexico. Bilberry Cactus is fast growing and is often used as grafting stock; it's so easy to grow that collectors don't bother. Go figure. With favourable conditions it can reach heights of 15 feet, an impressive, architectural specimen with creamy white flowers, sweet berries, and minimal prickers.
