is often mistaken for it. Its name comes from a drooping flower that looks like
it's nodding or sleeping. It grows well in its natural habitats of fields,
marshes, and wetland areas such as swamps and river shores. Nodding Sedge also
does well in artificial habitats, such as in landscape design and flower beds.
The leaf blade has a sandpaper-like texture to it. Nodding sedge is a grass-like
perennial that has a fibrous root and alternating leaf arrangement. Leaves are
linear in shape and grow parallel to one another; Nodding sedges can grow
anywhere from one to six feet in height. Nodding sedges prefer very moist soil
conditions and can thrive in the shade, partial shade, or sun. Nodding sedge
are vascular plants with internal water delivering circulatory systems.
are part of the lily family. The stems of the nodding sedge are triangular and
occur in tufts. Each stem of the nodding sedge supports two to five seed
spikes. The seed spikes can be 4 inches in length and up to a quarter of an
inch in diameter. The leaves of the nodding sedge are grass-like and
"u" shaped. A rough-textured sheath surrounds the base of the nodding
sedge plant; The sheath becomes fibrous as the plant ages. The stems are erect,

flower is framed like a picture by a contrasting colored flower. It loves
sunshine but needs shade in the summer part of the day.
Its average height reaches 12 inches, but some
can grow up to 3 feet. Not fast-growing, each plant holds plenty of spring
blooms, over and over again in one spring. One would categorize it as a hardy
Colors range from cream, violet, periwinkle,

It is suggested to break several plants up and
grow them separately when brought home from the nursery. They love lots of
room, so any potted Columbine should be for only one plant and main root.

prevent transplant shock.
Hummingbirds are sure to visit your garden
because of their attraction to this flower. This plant self germinates and
lasts for several years if well-tended. The height of its bloom season is in
April and May. Its native soil in Quebec, Canada, flourishes south to Florida
and the east reaching Texas, but it's genuinely splendid in Virginia. Any
garden graced with Columbine is a garden pleasurable to spend time in!
Lizards tail - Saururus cernuus L
Lizard's tail (Saururus cernuus L) is almost
referred to as lizard's tail swamp lily, breastweed, and water dragon. It is
referred to as breastweed because it has been known to treat inflammation of
the breasts. It is an erect and hairy perennial. It can reach up to four feet
in height. It has slender, nodding (leaning) spikes of white flowers. Many tiny
and fragrant flowers are on the sharp and stalked spike. This perennial herb
blooms from April through August. When in bloom, it resembles a bottle brush.
Lizard's tail stems are a light green color. It is commonly found growing in
wetland areas and river banks, marshes, ponds, and lakes. Lizards tail grows
best in full to partial shade. That is an aquatic-loving plant that grows best
in very wet soil and mud.
The foliage of the lizard's tail has a sassafras
scent. It is best for wetland gardens and creates lovely ground cover. It can
grow in four inches of ground saturation and colonizes quickly. If over-eaten
by cattle, it can be toxic. Humans should avoid eating this plant. It should
not be planted where animals forage. The leaves of the lizard's tail are large
and heart-shaped or arrowheads. Small aquatic creatures like woodland ducks,
fish, and frogs use the lizard's tail as hiding grounds. When a lizard's tail
dies, it is decomposed by algae and is a food source for aquatic life. Lizard's
tail requires very little care once it is established. It spreads by root
propagation. It is considered a good plant for beginner gardeners; It is not
susceptible to disease or insects. Lizard's tail is a herbaceous perennial that
grows best in hardiness zones four through eleven. This emersed plant grows
from a colony of underground runners.
Northern Privet - Ligustrum x ibolium
The Northern Privet (Ligustrum x ibolium) can
be found growing in hardiness zones 4 to 8. It is an ornamental shrub that is
one of America's fastest-growing hedge-producing shrubs. North privet is
commonly used in landscape design, eliminating the need for a fence. The North
Privet can grow from 8 to 12 feet in height and spreads 4 to 6 feet in width
once it matures. If left untrimmed, the northern privet can reach heights of up
to fifteen feet and spread eight feet. The North privet is an exceptionally
fast-growing deciduous shrub, and it grows around two feet in size each year.

sheared. There is no specific trimming schedule to follow when clipping the
north privet. It will maintain its natural shape if sheared a few times a year.
It prefers no less than 4 hours of unfiltered, direct sunlight each day.
northern privet does best in partial shade to full sun; The privet grows well
in most soil conditions. It can tolerate well-drained, acidic, alkaline, sandy,
silty loam, loamy, moist, and rich soil conditions. Once it is established, it
can become drought tolerant. The foliage of the northern privet is a glossy
dark green color. It is a semi-evergreen shrub. It grows pyramidal and provides
a privacy screen. When sheared often, it will develop a thick layer of
branches. The North privet features fragrant white small flowers that bloom in
the early spring. These flowers often attract butterflies and bees. Once the
flowers fade, the northern privet then produces a dark blue-colored berry that
attracts birds. These droops typically form in the late summer to early fall
and can remain on the privet through the winter months to provide food for
birds and other small animals.
