Amorpha False Indigo Bush

(Amorpha fruiticosa)

Full to Part Sun. Native nitrogen fixing shrub up to 18′ tall, but can be coppiced

Amorpha fruiticosa is an attractive native wildflower shrub. It is a legume, and is often used in permaculture plantings as a nitrogen fixer – usually with the plan to coppice the bush (“chop & drop”) because it will reach a fairly substantial size if not chopped down frequently. 15-18′ tall and spreading up to twice that width. NOT edible, it’s practical benefits are mostly beauty, nitrogen fixing and soil stabilization, and it also has some potential as a natural insecticide. Fast growing, thornless. Nitrogen Fixer.

Caroline Red Raspberry

(Rubus idaeus)

Full Sun. everbearing, disease resistant

Very vigorous, one of the best-flavored “everbearing” types: will crop early summer and again in the fall if only the dead (second year) shoots are selectively pruned out every winter. Most market growers (including us) mow down the entire plant every winter, resulting in a heavier crop of high quality berries in the fall only. Has good resistance to root rot diseases, but still needs a raised bed to thrive in our heavy clay.  Tolerant to grey mold. Caroline has shown exceptionally high antioxidant levels compared to other red raspberries.  Plant 1’-2’ apart in row; will fill in row with suckers in a year or two.  Does not need trellising.  Self fertile. .

Triple Crown Thornless Blackberry

Full Sun to Part Shade. Sweet, Trailing type, extremely vigorous

Trailing type, needs trellis. Our most productive (per plant) of the sweet thornless types. Large berries, fast growth, smaller seeds.   Blackberries will tip root and give you many more plants if you fail to tie them to the trellis.  Canes can grow 10’ or more but best to tip them at 4′-7′.   Blooms very late so avoids the occasional freezes that can hurt the blossoms of earlier blackberries.  Blackberries do well in almost any soil in our region.  Mid to late-season ripening.   Space 5’ apart in row.  Self fertile. . North American native plant.
