In nature, a native tree is simply a member of a group of plants and animals that are indigenous to an area where their existence is common without human influence. In biogeography, indigenous species are native to an area whether its existence in that area is due to only local natural development or due to human intrusion.
The term is similar to the terminology used when talking about native or autochthyroid plants. While it’s possible to plant seeds of alien species successfully in your garden, most experts believe that they are unlikely to survive for more than a few years as many would be very weak and easily destroyed by pests and disease.
One type of native tree from Wildtree is the Black Ash, Black-Eyed Susans, and Milkweed, which are native to Europe, the USA, and parts of Asia. However, they are not native to Ireland.
Another popularly planted native tree is the Willow, which has a spectacular spread across the north and Midlands. Willow trees are an excellent addition to a woodland theme for gardens with a green theme, as they are extremely hardy and rarely need much maintenance.
Wildwoods trees are the largest native plants in America and provide excellent wildlife habitat and birdlife. Some of the larger trees can take over half the area of a square mile, so if you’re looking for a large tree, you’re probably looking for one in an area with a lot of disturbed native vegetation.
Native shrubs and grasses are other popular options for gardens with a native theme, as many of them can be used as grass replacements. Almost all wild woods grow deciduous, so you will have to choose carefully. Some of the more common deciduous trees include the Canada Maple (Ulmus rubra), the Black Elderberry (Semicarpus Anacardium), the Loblolly Pine (Picea glomerata), and the Redwood.
Many other plants can be used as a replacement for native vegetation in your garden, including flowering shrubs, ground covers and even climbing plants such as hydrangeas or pygmy palms. Planting perennials is a great idea for gardens with a natural theme.
Typically, perennials live for two to five years, after which they lose their leaves and die back. Some popular perennial plants include the plant (Alopecia speciosa), the Black Eyed Susans plant (Vitex negundo), the Blue Lobelia (Crateiferacaespitosa), and the Maidenhair Plant (Hemidesmus indicus). Other annuals include the Mexican Wildflower, the Mexican Evergreen, the Kentucky Spring Beauty, the Bermuda Grass, the Button Plant, and the Chinese Mulberry. Most perennials can be started growing in late spring or early summer, before the first frosts.
