Lush, full landscapes don’t happen overnight. For many gardeners, especially those seeking shade or privacy from their landscape plants, frustration sets in after they plant a shrub or tree and it just seems to sit there without growing at all. Perennials, including lots of shrubs and trees, often follow the “sleep, creep and leap” rule of thumb for growth — they “sleep” the first year (no new above-ground growth), “creep” the next year (very little growth observed) and “leap” the third year (noticeable, measurable growth). Although plant growth seems to be slow as molasses sometimes, what’s happening below ground is significant — the root systems are becoming established so they can support and nourish growing plants.
What if you’re among the scores of impatient gardeners who don’t want to wait three years before you see any significant growth on your shrubs and trees while the roots are the only part growing? And then – bringing more disappointment – you watch your plants continue to grow slowly even after the third year because you’ve planted a tree or shrub that is categorized as a slow-growing plant?
The Solution: The answer to how you can get ahead of the growth curve is by planting trees and shrubs that by nature (or breeding) are classified as fast-growing plants.
Adding color to your landscape with these perennial shrubs will bring your entire yard to life!
