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 inch tube by August.
Here are the 24 inch bare root shrubs in May, 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. Pictured above a monarch butterfly hatches in a tube.
