NPC #5/CPC: First Hints/Signs of Spring in The South-Central Piedmont Region of North Carolina

Eastern Tree Caterpillar
nests are commonly found on
wild cherry, apple, and crab apple,
but may be found on hawthorn, maple,
cherry, peach, pear and plum as well.
There is one generation of the
Eastern tent caterpillar per year.
The insects overwinter
as egg masses on twigs,
and they hatch in April.
They turn into moths
which are reddish-brown
with two pale stripes running
diagonally across each forewing.
Photinia ‘ Red Robin ‘ P x fraseri
also known as the Christmas Berry
makes an attractive hedging plant
with its glossy red new growth.
Wisteria sinensis ‘Cooke’s Purple’
Hally Jolivette Cherry (Prunus)
is one of the best
flower ornamental
cherry trees available.
