It is a shrub or tree up to 3 m tall, blooms in May, before leafing. At the same time the plant is completely covered with large pink flowers. Especially good terry shape 'Plena'. There are no other decorative features of the bush. Luisean is light-requiring, prefers permeable fertile soils. Better winters in places protected from the cold wind. Propagated by luizeanii vaccine seedlings plums (Prunus). Extremely spectacular in bloom is a grafted stumb shape of luiseania. A tree that looks like a large bouquet looks good as an element of a flower garden.
The most famous and decorative look is the three-bladed Louiseania (Louiseania triloba).
Luiseania (Sakura three-blade) in landscape design
Experienced gardeners are more refined called luizeanii - three-lobed almonds. In addition, since this plant has an unusually beautiful flowering in May, the masters of the garden business say that it resembles a three-lobed sakura.
Experts consider planting a bush with other types of shrubs a good solution for landscape design: for example, in combination with spirea. A winning option will be with the creation of a plant ensemble from luizeanii and such a perennial as a daylily.
What must be remembered for those who decided to decorate their garden with this wonderfully flowering plant is the fact that gray rot and aphid are the main threat to it. To prevent rot, we recommend that you pay due attention to caring for luiseanie: if signs of disease have been noticed, you must immediately remove — that is, trim — all affected parts. Aphids and bark beetles, which most often damage the old bushes, should be destroyed as follows - process the trunk of a bush with a clay-known mixture.
However, these threats are not so terrible for a plant as moniliosis is a fungal disease. In order to protect the shrub luizeaniya from a similar misfortune, gardeners are advised to spray a bush with such a substance as foundationol. The procedure is carried out during flowering at least 2 times - necessarily when half the buds bloom, and re-sprayed after opening the rest of the flowers. Suitable for combating the disease and the already mentioned procedure for cutting. It is performed so that 3 buds remain on the branch.
Planting and caring for luiseania shrubs
Planting luiseanii provides placement of the bush on a plot of land where during the day the plant will be able to get a sufficient amount of sunlight. It would be desirable that the place was protected from the north winds.
The soil should be chosen such that it was, firstly, fertile, and, secondly, well drained. The content in the soil of a sufficient amount of lime is welcome - approximately, 300 g.
When a hole has been dug in the right place, you should lay it out with the same drainage layer, which consists of 20 cm. Layer of rubble and sand no less than 5. .
Remember that important point that the root neck of a plant cannot be dredged into the ground - it must be above the soil surface. If you plant several bushes, then place them at a distance of at least 1 m.
After landing luiseanie care for her provides for the first stage, the obligatory mulching of the land under it. To do this, it is necessary to sprinkle a small area around the trunk with peat, a layer of which should not be thicker than 7.
In our area, a certain threat in the cultivation of this shrub is represented by abrupt changes in temperature regimes - the rapid transition from severe frosts to the sudden onset of thaws. To protect luizeaniyu from death, experts advise to shelter a bush for the period of winter cold.
Pay attention to the following point: If you planted a plant on a plot with sandy soil, you should take care of its regular watering. This is especially necessary during the blooming of buds. The shrub planted on loamy soil is less demanding. Moreover, if water stagnates in the ground, it can lead to rotting and even death of the three-bladed almond.
Another feature in the description of luizeaniya is that it needs regular feeding. The process of applying various fertilizers is as follows: in the spring, for example, it is desirable to add a mixture of urea, mullein and saltpeter to the soil (ratio: 10 g, 1 kg, 20 g). But in the fall, gardeners use mineral supplements such as potassium and superphosphate.
Look at the photo: in order for luiseania to give such a lush color, it is necessary to conduct two types of pruning annually - sanitary, when all frozen or old branches are removed, and formative ones.
Forming haircut suggests that the gardener carefully trim the crown on all sides. Most often this is necessary in order to give the plant a spherical shape. This procedure is first carried out after the plant is running 2 of the year.
If you need to transplant luizeanii, then it is best to do it in August. Even in spite of the fact that, in principle, at any time the shrub moves away well after transplantation.
As we said at the very beginning, the three-bladed jasmine must be covered with the onset of winter cold. This is done as follows:
- you must collect crown branches in a bundle;
- then wrap them with the same film to protect the kidneys;
- young saplings can be helped to survive the winter by sprinkling the area around the trunk with a layer of earth no less than 13. Just do not forget to leave the root of the plant open!
Admire the photo of the three-bladed luizeaniya: such magnificence will be able to decorate your garden if you listen to the recommendations that you could see above:
Breeding three-blade liuseania
The masters of the gardening case warn: reproducing luiseanii with the help of cuttings is not an easy matter, which only experienced gardeners can do. Therefore, beginners should opt for such a procedure as vaccination. It is carried out on cherry plum, yellow plum varieties or sloes. The most successful time for vaccination is the beginning of spring.
What you need to know to properly perform this procedure for reproduction:
- First, the grafting is done at a height of at least 7. This ensures that the appearance of the future tree will be aesthetic.
- In addition, be sure to make cuts so that the top one is straight and the cut stalk has at least 2 buds. Then the sections should be compared and fixed with each other using a special graft tape.
- Cut the top stalk to handle brew.
If you have done everything correctly, then after a short period of time it will be possible to see how the buds that remained on the handle began to grow.
When the year passes, you can already boldly transplant the plant to a permanent place.
And it will decorate your garden in the same way as you can see the picture of the luiseania shrub:
