The red, North Star cherry tree is recommended to grow as a cold hardy cherry in Northern parts of Georgia. The Montmorency cherry tree is also a sour, red cherry that is best for baking into pies. The Black Tartarian cherry tree and Bing cherries are sweet cherries and when ripe can be eaten fresh off the tree. The Moorpark apricot tree and the Yellow Golden apricot trees are best for growing in North Georgia. The Katy apricot trees have produced sweet delicious apricots at Ty Ty, Ga., in Southwest Georgia.

Bunch grapevines are best adapted for growing in USDA Georgia zones 6-7 in North Georgia. Concord grapes are standard vineyard bunch grapes, that along with the black Fredonia bunch grapes, the red Catawba grapes and the white Niagara grapes , are heavy producers of sweet, juicy grapes. Bunch grapes are tasty to eat fresh in clusters straight off the vines or to make grape juice, grape jelly or to ferment into grape wine. Seedless grape vines are also the best choice to grow in North Georgia rather than in South Georgia, zone 8 and 9, because in South Georgia the humidity and extreme heat are not favorable for seedless grapes growing here.

The longleaf pine tree is well adapted for growing in Georgia forests, and many homeowners grow the longleaf pine trees as shade trees that save costs of electricity and air conditioning. Most pine trees are fast growing trees, however, the longleaf pine tree begins its growing cycle in a grass-like stage that produces leaves (needles in bundles of 3) that grow long (1 ½ feet) as the name, “longleaf” would suggest. The longleaf pine tree grows throughout the Atlantic eastern seaboard States to the Carolina's to Virginia. The States of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana are densely covered with top longleaf pines that grow even down into Texas.

Do you live in South Florida or the Florida Keys? If so, the Institute for Regional Conservation (IRC) has an additional database of native plants useful in landscaping and restoration. This database is particularly good for restoration and for making sure that you only choose plants that are native in you immediate area. FNPS provided substantial financial support to IRC for the development of this database.

Blueberry plants not only produce tasty crops of blueberries the second season after planting, blueberry plants add a natural beauty to the landscape as well. Growing blueberries in Florida requires selecting special low-chill cultivars that grow well in the state's warmer climate. Choose southern highbush cultivars, if you live in Central Florida between Ocala and Sebring. Grow rabbiteye cultivars, if you plan to grow blueberry plants in Ocala or other northern areas of Florida. Grow at least two or more cultivars of blueberries to ensure pollination of the plants.

Select the site to the grow blueberries that provides full sun and well draining soil. Pick a location clear of any tree roots (except pine trees) and no closer than 20 feet from structures. Plan to plant the blueberry plants in Florida some time between the middle of December to the middle of February.

Clear the area for planting blueberries of all plants and debris several months before the intended planting date. Add peat moss to the soil and mix it to a depth of 6 inches.
