The resurrection fern gets its name because it can survive long periods
of drought by curling up and appearing dead. When just a little
water is present, the fern will uncurl and reopen, appearing to
resurrect. This plant has even been taken on a space shuttle mission
to watch it resurrect itself in space! This tiny, creeping fern has a long
stem to which the fronds are attached. The leathery, evergreen
leaves are called fronds and are 4" to 12" long. The fronds are made of
smaller, rounded, oblong blades alternately arranged but tending to
become opposite. Like all ferns, the resurrection fern does not
reproduce by fruits or seeds but uses spores instead. The spores are
found in clusters, called sori, on the bottom of the blades near the edge.
The sori appear as brown to black scales. The long, horizontal, skinny
stem is less than 1/12" in diameter and is attached to and creeps along
the bark of large trees. This is where the fronds then come out from.
You're getting a section about 4"x4" that will have several fern fronds
on it for $15.00.
I even have these in my tree frog vivarium and you can make an outside
container shade garden with these too!
Ebony Spleenwort-Asplenium platyneuron
Ebony spleenwort looks something like a smaller, more delicate version of
Christmas fern, though the two ferns are not closely related. To identify ebony
spleenwort, look for a smooth, glossy red-brown stem. The fertile
fronds (female) grow very erect, while the sterile fronds are shorter and more
These can be used in terrariums but may need trimming back in the Spring.
Habitat: rocky woods Height: 15 inches
Persistence: evergreen Location of spores: underside of fronds
Stipe (leaf stalk): glossy red-brown, smooth, & brittle
Growth pattern: asymmetric clump

Branch Description:Tall, thorny, arching cane with palmate-compound leaves,
white, 5-petaled flowers and familiar fruit; flowers white to pinkish, 5-petaled, radially
-symmetrical 3/4 inch across, with many bushy stamens, in loose clusters; fruit
aggregate, black, elliptical, faceted, 1/2 to 1-1/2 inches long; leaves palmate-compound,
up to 7 inches long, 3 to 7-parted, leaflets sharply toothed, up to 2 inches long; stem
biennial cane trailing or up to 9 feet tall, arching, reddish-brown, sharply thorny; roots
perennial. Wild blackberries are like the ones you buy, but better. Among the
best-known berries in America, you can find them wherever you live. The toothed
leaves are compound —divided into segments, called leaflets. Since the leaflets, like
your fingers, originate from a point rather than a line, the leaves are called palmate-
compound. Each leaf usually has 3-7 sharply-toothed leaflets.
Growth and anatomical description : Blackberries are perennial plants which
typically bear biennial stems ("canes") from the perennial root system. In its first year,
a new stem, the primocane, grows vigorously to its full length of 3-6 m (in some cases,
up to 9m), arching or trailing along the ground bearing large palmately compound
leaves with five or seven leaflets; it does not produce any flowers.
In its second year, the cane becomes a floricane and the stem does not grow longer,
the flower buds break to produce flowering laterals, which bear smaller leaves with
three or five leaflets.First and second year shoots are usually spiny with numerous
short curved very sharp thorns (thorn less cultivars have been developed purposefully).
Unmanaged mature plants form a tangle of dense arching stems, the
branches rooting from the node tip on many species when they reach the
ground. Vigorous and growing rapidly in woods, scrub, hillsides and
hedgerows, blackberry shrubs tolerate poor soils, readily colonizing
wasteland, ditches and vacant lots.
The flowers are produced in late spring and early summer on short
racemes on the tips of the flowering laterals.Each flower is about 2-3 cm
in diameter with five white or pale pink petals.The newly developed
primocane fruiting produces flowers and fruits on the new growth.
The blackberry is known to contain polyphenol antioxidants, naturally
occurring chemicals that can upregulate certain beneficial metabolic
processes in mammals. The astringent blackberry root is sometimes used
in herbal medicine as a treatment for diarrhea and dysentery.

Blackberries rank highly among fruits for antioxidant strength, particularly
due to their dense contents of polyphenolic compounds, such as ellagic
acid, tannins, ellagitannins, quercetin, gallic acid, anthocyanins and
Blackberries have an ORAC value (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) of
5347 per 100 grams, including them among the top-ranked ORAC fruits.
Another report using a different assay for assessing antioxidant strength
placed blackberry at the top of more than 1000 antioxidant foods
consumed in the United States.
Nutrient content of seeds Blackberries are exceptional among other Rubus
berries for their numerous, large seeds not always preferred by consumers.
They contain rich amounts of omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid) and -6 fats
(linoleic acid), protein, dietary fiber, carotenoids, ellagitannins and
You will be getting 1 plant which will be cut back and shipped bare root
just like my other perennial plants that I sell here. Remember the rooted
section is where all the plant life is. The third and fifth pictures above
show you the size plant I will be digging. They are at least 1-2 year old
plants and some may even be older than that. Price each is only $2.49
(Lonicera japonica) Bare Root
This species is sold by American nurseries, often as the cultivar
'Hall's Prolific' (Lonicera Japonica var. Halliana). It is an effective
ground cover, and has pleasant, strong-smelling flowers. It can be
cultivated by seed, cuttings or layering. In addition, it will spread
itself via shoots if given enough space to grow .You will be getting a
mature plant shipped bare root with the roots wrapped in moist
packing material then bagged. During transit and planting it is normal
for some leaves to die/fall off.
This is a woody plant like the Virginia Creeper I sell. Some leaf drop is
normal. Keeping the plant well watered until new growth appears is
the most important thing to remember. Within a few weeks new
growth will appear. Like the Virginia creeper, as the woody stem
touches the ground,it will produce roots at each leaf node section!
Height:20-30 ft. (6-9 m) Hardiness:USDA Zone 4a: 10b Sun Exposure:Full Sun
Bloom Time: Late Spring/Early Summer,Mid Summer, blooms repeatedly.
This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and/or birds .
Grape family (Vitaceae)
This native perennial plant is a woody vine up to 60' long. It usually climbs up trees, shrubs, or fences, but sometimes sprawls across the ground, forming a ground cover up to 1' tall. The stems are initially green and hairless, but eventually they become brown and woody. The alternate leaves usually are consisting of 5 leaflets (rarely 3 or 7).
Each compound leaf has a long slender petiole up to 6-8" long. The leaflets are up to 6" long and 2½" across. They are ovate or obovate and coarsely serrated (at least along the upper half of their margins). The upper side of each leaflet is dark green, while the lower side is light green and either glabrous or pubescent. The bottom of each leaflet is often wedge-shaped, while its outer margins may taper abruptly into a short blunt tip, or they may taper gradually into a long pointed tip. Opposite from the leaves, are branched tendrils that often terminate into flattened pads. These pads can cling to tree bark, wooden fences, brick walls, and other rough surfaces.
