The main condition for good growth and flowering: It is good soil moisture and regular feeding of plants. But pour Keriya Japanese is not necessary, water is applied as needed. Feed plant must immediately after the main spring pruning.

Fertilizer can serve as compost and ash, which should pour around the plant with a thin layer.

An important role in the care of these bushes pruning takes:

  • After the winter it is necessary to remove the weak and damaged branches and shoots.
  • And cut those branches, which create an increased density of the bush, that is, to make room for new, young shoots.
  • Summary same trimming and forming of the bush after the first pass, abundant flowering.
  • With this pruning cut off a quarter of the flight, on which there were flowers.

Kerry Japanese - one of a kind

That's what would say about Kerry nerd, since a single view listed in this genus - Kerry Japanese (kerria japonica).

I wonder why Kerry is rare in our gardens. She is quite pretty thanks to a refined graphic quality of the shoots and leaves and poignant "chicken" yellowness flowers. Richly flowering about a month since the last days of May, and in the late summer bloom again, though this time not abundant. And despite its relatively southern origin, is quite hardy in the middle lane, at the ends of shoots in the winter often freeze slightly.

Kerry (Kerria) - genus of deciduous shrubs from the family Rosaceae. The genus name is given to the plant after William Kerr, the first gardener of the Royal Botanical Gardens in Ceylon and plant collector. The name "Easter Rose" is given for the flowering bushes and flower shape resembling small rosettes.

A Japanese homeland Kerry - China and Japan. There it grows up to nearly three meters high. We also never overcome the penalty mark. And shoots almost entirely green, only in the lower part they slightly turn brown, making very real impression of bushes herbaceous plants. Leaves Kerry with drawn tip, up to 8-10 cm, with a clear dent veining. Notched edge of the sheet.

In central Russia Kerry often frosted over before the snow level, but then it grows well and blooms profusely.

Thin bright green twigs shoots resemble straw cereals, and thanks to the abundant root seedlings form a sort of sparse turf. Kerry remarkably fit into the company of a large mixed flower bed. She is good at the edges shrub compositions, blend naturally with low, gazing up conifer - spruce, Tusi, junipers. Quite organically in the traditional front garden next to the roses, hosts letnetsvetuschimi spirea.

My acquaintance with Japanese Kerry held a decade ago. I have tried to grow it in a variety of settings: a fairly dry gentle slope on a flat open space, protected sunny cubbyhole. It turned out that the most suitable Kerry veiled from cold winds place with moist fertile loam, in full light. In winter there is a lot of snow accumulates, Kerry only benefit.

Kerry easiest to propagate by dividing the old bush. Bending down to the ground and prishpilivaya flexible shoots, it is easy to get horizontal layers. A bush may be separated from shoots and then subcultured in its shading place at frequent watering. But most effectively propagated by cuttings Kerry - woody and green (although the color they are green).

Kerry is the basic (natural) and the terry forms. At main flower corolla simple from 5 bright yellow petals diameter up to 4.5 cm. The flowers terry form (f. Plena) resemble miniature yellow rosettes. The flowers appear in the top of the old branches - at the ends of the lateral shoots and in the axils of the leaves, and in the current year shoots.

Cut into woody cuttings in April, green - in mid-June. Cuttings with one interstitial (ie two adjacent vertical leaves, cut bottom - skew) are planted in a cold frame in the penumbra of light. Okorenyayutsya they are pretty good, but not fast. Hibernate is left in place. It was only in May next year, sat on rearing. Most developed from cuttings can be divided into containers. And by April of next year, all the cuttings are transformed into small bushes, ready for landing a permanent place.

Under Kerr dig a hole size of 60 × 60 cm and a depth of about 40 cm was filled with its mixture of humus, compost and fertile of garden soil in a ratio of 3:. 3: 2 was added to the mixture of 60-80 g of complete fertilizer. The mixture is poured slide, taking into account the shrinkage after planting shrub watered thoroughly.

Kerry tolerates transplantation with a clod of earth, with a certain accuracy it can be done at any time, but it is best to repot in the spring and fall, when there are no leaves. Two weeks after moving the plant to a permanent place of residence regularly water them thoroughly soaking the root zone. Since this rather hygrophilous shrub watering useful in the future, if prolonged for more than a week drought.

After the first flowering in July, Kerry trimmed and simultaneously fertilize mullein infusion. High branches pruned at the same height (about 1/3), and the young root growth only slightly pinch, to encourage branching. Usually limited to one feeding, but sometimes two weeks repeat it. Mowing along with feeding promotes active capacity of the crown, the formation of more young shoots. Convinced that if all let things slide, Kerry "will lose luster," and with good care is always attractive and blooms all summer without slumps.

There are a number of Kerry and variegated forms. The best known of them - variegates, Pictet or (Variegata, Picta), lower than the natural form, with nemahrovymi flowers and light green leaves covered with white spots.

Although their Kerry I winter not hide, because successfully chose a place for them on the site, I advise all the same in the open with the onset of sustained freezing nights and transition average daily temperature above 0 ° C (this usually happens in the first week of November) weigh down the branches of the bush hooks to the ground, and then to impose a plant spruce spruce branches.

Kerry used as hedges, with registration mixborders. It looks good as a solitaire with many spring primroses (witch hazel, rhododendron, azalea, Mahonia).

Even if your flower garden bursts with all curiosities, should find a place for Kerry. After all, she's one of a kind, like her there.

    Features of planting and caring for Kerry Japanese

    Condition of successful cultivation of Kerry is the right fit, and compliance with the rules of care.

    Kerr planted in a hole 60 * 60 cm wide and 45 - 50 cm deep. Favorable to the healing of the bush and its further growth is the mixing ratio for planting 3: 3: 2, which includes humus, turf ground Ogorodnaya and fertile soil. The resulting mixture was also added about 80 g of mineral fertilizers. It is best to transplant in spring or autumn, when there are no leaves.

    Landing site chosen windless sufficiently illuminated by the sun. It grows well in partial shade and Kerry, but then bloom it less intense. Shrub prefers adequate watering, and therefore requires a weekly abundant moisture, and after transplant watered more frequently and requires soaking the root zone water and mulching.

    Hygrophilous shrub although sufficient, but, nevertheless, it does not carry excessive moisture. It must be watered regularly during the flowering period, and in the intense heat, while avoiding stagnation of water in the soil. The water for irrigation once a week is necessary to include mineral supplements in the form of special preparations for ornamental and flowering plants.

    One of the important components of care is regular pruning. It is held in the spring, after frost. Podmerzshie are cut, broken and dead branches, and for greater stimulation to branch a third shorter good shoots. After the flowering period is also made trim - remove shoots, which did not bloom, but leave those that did not have flowers on them, they will fall. At the same time should be spent pruning of branches over 4-5 years. Too overgrown Kerry periodically decimated.

    Since the bush can suffer from frost, it is recommended to cover for the winter, with the onset of cold weather (mid-October). Procedure for winterization is performed in dry conditions: scrubs bend to the ground, stacked substrate on a dry foam or other material and fixed frame made of stakes. It provides reliable protection against damage branches. Then poured dry leaves or chips and placed on top of two layers lutrasila. The resulting protective structure must be well ventilated and dry, giving the plant rot. Spring cover is opened gradually after cessation of frost, it is best when it is cloudy, so that young roots do not get a sunburn.

    Propagated plants by cuttings, root suckers, or taps, which quickly take root. Offspring recommended transplanted in early autumn, and cuttings and slips - in April.

    Due to similar rules of care, Kerry goes well in the garden with Mago, Weigel, Forsythia and Deutz, which bloom in the spring.
