Vary things up
Vary up your trees, flowers, plants, and shrubs to make sure something is always in bloom, and there’s a variety of colors for optimal beauty in your picnic area.
To start things off? You’ll need a great tree
https://www.tnnursery.net/perennials-for-sale/. Here are some of our favorites for yours:
Red Oak Tree
These beauties are known for their fast growth and hardiness, as many live for hundreds of years. You’ll love the light red of their leaves in the spring and the deep, vibrant red of their autumn leaves. Put your picnic table right underneath this tree as it grows to make it the main feature of your picnic spot. Get your Red Oak Tree here.
Red Maple Tree
Another gorgeous shade tree is the Red Maple, also known as fast-growing and perfect for a picnic spot. Their spring blossoms are a brilliant shade of red and attract many pollinators. In the fall, they turn different colors from orange to yellow to dark red. Leaves are light yellowish-green with a bar of silver underneath.
The branches of this sturdy tree support wildlife, i.e., many kinds of birds find adequate shelter for nesting. If you have enough space, you could get a few of these and plant them in a staggered fashion throughout your garden, or vary them with colorful daffodils, hostas, and other flowers.

Toss in some bushes for another level of beauty between your trees and flowers for the best arrangement of color.
The Wild Hydrangea Shrub
These impressive shrubs can get from three to six feet tall with heart-shaped leaves and huge greenish-white flowers. They’re also called ‘smooth hydrangeas,’ and usually bloom all the way from June until the very first frost of the winter. Get your Wild Hydrangea Shrub here.
Black Chokeberry Bush
A small to medium-sized shrub, the Black Chokeberry Bush grows to two or three feet tall and is an attractive ornamental as well as a food source for many. In spite of its sour flavor, it’s successfully made it into recipes ranging from wine to syrup and jam, to chili, beer, salsa, and ice cream.
Its blossoms appear in white clusters in the spring, about two inches across. Later as they mature, they turn into the black berries they are known to be. As fall closes in, the leaves turn a lovely shade of magenta. Get your Black Chokeberry Bush here.
