These native pollinator shrubs were ordered from the Iowa State Nursery and planted spring 2019. Photo above left shows the Button bush shrub growing out of the 48" tube by August.
Here are 24" bare root shrubs in the spring, soaking in water and ready for planting. Species include Buttonbush, Gray Dogwood, and Wild Plum. The blue tubes protect from UV light and deer predation. If you look closely you can see a monarch butterfly hatching in a tube!
