Many Reasons to Be Conscious of High Pollen Flowers

Bookmark This Article to Delicious

People all over the world, especially in Canada, have many reasons to be conscious of high pollen flowers that add to their allergy suffering when the temperatures outside begin to rise. Warmer weather means additional allergens and moulds brought on by pollen circulating in the air which comes from flowering plants, trees and shrubs. An individual who is thinking of doing some landscaping in their yard should go with the low or no pollen blooming vegetation and trees to help lower the number of days they suffer from seasonal allergies.

In order to keep pollen to a minimum, it is important to recognize male plants from female plants because one pollinates more than the other and will aggregate an allergy sufferer more. Gender of a plant makes a large difference to the pollen an individual will breathe when they are outside. During the flowering process, male plants create more pollen than the female plants.

Considered to be messier, female plants are better for being less pollen producing so therefore these are the types of trees, plants and shrubs people will want to plant in their yards. Male plants create more pollen spores throughout the year causing more allergy sufferers to seek medical help which in the end, costs money. It may be hard to tell which plants are male and which plants are female and help could be in the form of a specialist at the garden shop or nursery. Fruitless or seedless plants are typically male plants but the homeowner would not know this unless they ask. A tree that could be both male and female is the Ginkgo tree from Canada. The female version is the one that a homeowner wants to plant in their yard for less pollen.

Another trick to keeping the pollen from over running the yard is to pick tube or trumpet shaped flowers. The morning glory is one such flower that comes in a variety of colors like traditional white and several hybrids like pale yellow and lavender.

Chrysanthemums are a pollen-free variety that are available at garden shops for planting around a house to help keep pollen away from the homeowner and their family and they look good too. Other flowers that should go in the flower beds that are low-pollen are tulips, sunflowers, poppies, peonies, zinnias, clematis crocus, nasturtiums, daffodils, impatiens or begonias.

For a yard with fewer flowers and more shrubs and trees, a low-pollen and free-pollen versions would make a yard look nice. They include crabapple, cherry, peach, pear, some maple, magnolia, juniper, plump, ash, redbud and the female version of the yew or maple. In addition, to limit pollen around the house, a homeowner could plant various red berry versions of holly.

Consider planting blooming flowering plants that attract butterflies rather than bees because butterflies carry less pollen than bees and other insects.

A Boxwood tree has an extremely allergenic flower, however, if it is pruned back yearly, it will keep it from flowering every year and a homeowner could plant this lovely tree in their yard without the worry of pollen invading their air.

Plant fungus or moulds and black spots from shrubs, flowering plants and trees replicate themselves through spores traveling through the air and is the main cause of allergies in people. To avoid this, ask a gardening expert at a plant store or nursery to help identify those vegetations that are prone to diseases and stay away from them. Because if a plant gets a disease, the spore's means they travel by air so the air around the plant is toxic.

There are many reasons to be conscious of high pollen flowers in many parts of the world, especially Canada where they have different blooming plants at different times of the year. By implementing a few, or all, of these tips into a landscape, allergies will be less bothersome this year and every year.
