How does the shrub Bubbleplodnik look like
Winter claw bristles, shade-tolerant, resistant to adverse conditions. Dislikes only stagnant water in the soil. Easily propagated by cuttings. Decorative forms are perfectly combined with each other, thanks to which the bubble in the design of landscapes is used very actively. From a species plant, you get a good hedge, including shorn.

Types and varieties of blister: photo and description
The main are two types of bladder clade - Amur and leaf-bearing.
Amur is located singly or in small groups among thickets of various bushes, on mountain slopes. It is a protected plant in the reserves. It is a bush up to 2,5 m tall. On adult specimens, the bark peels off in even stripes. The trunks of young bushes are smooth, usually dark colors. The leaves are about 10 cm long, green above and gray below. The flowers are white, with a diameter of about 1,5 cm, organized into inflorescences-semicircles.
Appreciate the beauty of this species of bubble in the photo below:
Amur blister flowers bloom up to 20 days, the fruits turn red when ripe, giving the shrub a bright, colorful appearance. It is also worth noting that this type of plant tolerates winter well, since the branches are woody completely. All known forms and varieties of this species of bladders are actively used in the design of personal plots, parks, city squares.
Kalinolistny view - It is a shrub about 2,5 m in height with wide, spreading branches. Shoots form a dense spherical crown.
We offer to evaluate this species of phytosperm - look at the photo, successfully conveying its advantages:
The leaves are approximately 5 cm in diameter, greenish above and lighter below, serrated at the edges, slightly drooping. Flowers are about 1,2 cm in size, white or pink, with hairs in the center. The fruits look very elegant, as they mature they change their color (from green to red).
And others serve as an excellent "material" for landscape designers.

How to multiply the blister cuttings, layering and division
The reproduction of the bubblefruit is carried out in several traditional ways, namely, by cuttings, grafting or dividing the bush.
The following describes the technology of the most popular breeding path for the bladder stem - reproduction by cuttings:
- Cut off young branches up to 20 cm, with several ramifications. At the same time, it is necessary to cut all the leaves from the bottom, and shorten them from above by about half.
- Soak cuttings in a root formation stimulator.
- Plant blanks in a bed, pre-supplied with sand and peat mixture.
- Liberally pour and cover with polyethylene.
In the future, the cuttings of the blister need care: you should air and water them, cover them for the winter. It’s not hard to figure out how to propagate the blister blade by cuttings, even an aspiring gardener can handle it.
Cultivation of the bladder funnel by the method of education layering is also not difficult. They take a strong shoot, cut off all the foliage from it, except for the top row, put it in the ditch done in advance (depth 10-12 cm). Spoon the brace, sprinkle with soil. Do not forget about the timely watering and removal of weeds. By the fall, a separate delineation will be ready, with its own root system. It is cut from the maternal shrub, as a result of which they receive a strong seedling of a bruteplodar, which are subsequently planted and cared for according to the general rules.
Then we will talk about how to multiply the bamboo in the garden by dividing the bush.
To begin the procedure is best in early spring or autumn. They dig up a mature bush, cut the root apparatus into several segments, then immediately plant the bladder-root (or rather each new unit obtained in the process of dividing).
How to plant a bubble and how to care for it
Care and cultivation of the bladder stem should be started with the selection of the area for planting. The plant feels great both in the sun and in the shade. The site is better to choose open, without trees nearby. A specimen does not tolerate lime in the soil, stagnant water - this kind of soil will cause the root system to rot. The shrub is able to tolerate a high concentration of carbon dioxide, so it is often planted as a hedge along the road.
Acquire a young seedling with closed roots in a proven nursery or use planting material harvested personally. A young plant can not be planted in frosty weather. It is better to engage in planting in the autumn, as there are more conditions for successful survival, intensive growth.
The following is a step-by-step instruction on how to plant a bubble:
- Dig a hole, pour a layer of fruitful soil there a few days before planting, so that the ground has time to settle. Determine the depth of the trench so that after placing a layer of fruitful earth the top of the roots of the plant is on the surface.
- When transferring the seedling to the planting ditch, do not remove the ground from the roots, so as not to harm the immature plant. Fertilizers at this stage, as a rule, are not added.
- Fill the trench with the land mixture (fertile soil layer + sand + turf + peat), water the plant abundantly.
- After the precipitation of the trunk circle, add more land.
- For several days, make sure that the ground around the seedling does not dry out.
If you want to make a dense hedge of the bushes of the bruisplodnik, plant young plants in 2 strips. Leave an 40 cm distance between the rows; the space between plants within one band should be 45 cm. In the future, the hedge is formed by trimming for every taste.
Pay attention to the planting of the bladder pole - the photo shows the procedure of transferring the seedlings to the place of their stationary “habitat”:
His health and appearance depend on how you take care of the bladder. The plant is unpretentious, but this does not mean that after planting you can forget about it. Under the necessary conditions, the bush can grow to 40 per season. In the second year after planting, only the flower cobs are laid, because of this, pruning and accurate crown formation are extremely important. The plant is frost-resistant, but with very strong cold, the tops of the branches can frost up. Care should be taken to warm the winter.
Take a look at the photo - with the right fit and care, the bubble will look just as gorgeous:
The plant does not tolerate drought. The frequency of moistening is regulated depending on the soil, weather, planting age. If the soil is loamy and the temperature is stable in summer, the bushes are watered abundantly from mid-spring to early autumn. When watering water should not irrigate the leaves or flowers, from this bush appear on the bushes. It is recommended to water the plant either before or after sunset. Do such manipulations 2 times / week. Under the adult bush is about 40 l of fluid. Avoid stagnant water!
Bubbyplodnik is famous for the fact that it is practically not subject to ailments and parasitic damage. Chlorosis of the leaves is very rare, due to the fact that the plant is deficient in trace elements in the ground. Also, chlorosis can be caused by pests that carry viruses. That is why the bushes must be regularly fertilized. Without proper feeding, they may soon die.
Fertilize planting twice a year. In the spring they feed with nitrogen-containing preparations, nutrient mixtures (10 l of water + 1 tbsp. Of ammonium nitrate + 0,5 l of mullein). Before the onset of cold weather in the fall, they fertilize with mineral complexes.
The plant shows all its decorative qualities only when it constantly receives rational care.

Adult bushes need rejuvenating haircut (every 6 years). The best time for it is early spring, when the foliage formation period has not yet come. Allowed the procedure in the fall, after the deciduous season. Old, dried branches are removed to their very foundation, and the rest are cut to the place of discharge of lateral shoots.
In instances that grow freely, the crown resembles a fountain. To make the bush wider, the branches are cut at a height of 0,5 m. Only the strongest and healthiest elements need to be left, then the bush will quickly take on a beautiful shape.
