Plants perfect for Oklahoma
Oklahoma homeowners are often on the look out for fast growing trees to provide color and shade to their gardens. Shrubs, fruit trees and evergreens are also popular. Here at the Faster Growing Trees Nursery, we have a wide selection of trees that we can help you match to your environment and hardiness zone.
If you live in the cooler mountain regions of Oklahoma where the growing season in shorter and the summer temperatures are mild, the robust Norway Spruce and the golden Quaking Aspen are perfectly suited to your climate. For more temperate areas the juicy American Cranberry and the graceful Lombardy Polar will feel right at home.
When you want to add a splash of color to your garden, consider our Autumn Blaze or October Glory Maples. These trees will set your landscape aglow in fall with their crimson foliage and can withstand the colder mountain climes. Other colorful, hardy favorites are Gingko, Forsythia and Burning Bush.
If you live in Oklahoma’s warmer hardiness zones, you can create your own personal orchard with our Key Lime trees, Bartlett Pear, Santa Rosa Plum and Navel Oranges. The juicy North Star Cherries are also perfect for colder climates.
Perhaps you want to increase the privacy of your property, if so, consider planting a row of Thuja Emerald Green, Cryptomeria Radicans or Drought Free Evergreens. These fast growing, feathery evergreens will enhance the beauty of your property’s boundary with their year-round dark green color, while adding a sense of security.
