Did you know that there are plants that celebrate the Fourth of July?

There are actually plants that are named in honor of this patriotic holiday.  What would you expect from them?  You’d think that they would be red, viagra sale  white or blue.  They should be good to grow in July and be able to take the summer heat.  And, tadalafil of course, they should look and/or taste great.  Here are are a few of our American holiday plants.

4th of July Tomato - Desert LandscaperThe Fourth of July tomato variety is a common variety of tomato plants. This non-cherry tomato ripens by the 4th of July in a typical climate. It grows to 4-ounces and is bright red. This tomato usually ripens forty-nine days after transplanting. These tomato plants are one of the earliest varieties of non-cherry tomatoes to ripen and they will continue to produce tomatoes until into the late summer until the early fall.  In some ideal weather conditions they will produce up to the first frost in the late fall or early winter.

 

4th of July Rose - Desert LandscaperFourth of July Red-White Climbing Rose was first introduced in 1999 by Tom Carruth, and has abundant clusters of big, semi-double flowers of deep red striped with white. They have an enticing fragrance of apples with  roses — they are irresistible! And, best of all, they bloom early in the season, then repeat throughout the summer. This rose won an All-American Rose Award, the first climber in a quarter century to do so. The raves started pouring in from the first lucky gardeners to plant this beauty!

Shooting Star Hydrangea - Desert Landscaper

Shooting Star Hydrangea This hydrangea is pure white and shaped like a star.  They look like fireworks in your yard!  These hydrangeas need to be planted so that they are shaded from the hot sun and any winds.  Water them often to keep them looking  lush and beautiful.  Don’t let them dry out.  They like a slightly acidic soil with good drainage.  The Shooting Star Hydrangea can grow to about 5’, so be sure to give it room to grow.

Now you know about three plants that celebrate the 4th of July.  Let us know how you will be celebrating our nation’s independence.  We’ll leave you with a quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed – else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.  ~Dwight D. Eisenhower
