Get advice on choosing plants at Monsoon Madness sale this weekend - Prescott Daily Courier
Jeff Schalau, county extension director and area agent for agriculture and natural resources at the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension. “They have to be able to withstand temperatures up to 100 degrees and temperatures as low as potentially 5 degrees … for the snow, you grow plants that can handle that. All of our native plants can, because they have grown here for a long time.”
Residents also need to look at the soil and identify its limitations, Schalau said. It is not easy to grow in clay soil compared to other soils around the county, he said. Clay soils are dense and compacted with poor drainage, staying soggy when wet and hard when dry during the summer, which doesn’t allow for the necessary air, water and nutrients to move to the plant.
The easiest plants for people to grow in the area are cacti and succulents because they are pretty forgiving, Schalau said.
Master Gardener Mary Barnes also said that low-water plants are encouraged because of how little moisture they need.
“We live in the desert,” Barnes said. “Anything that takes a lot of water or a lot of moisture probably won’t be as successful because most people are not applying that much water in their yard, and because we’re a desert climate, things ... Jul 5, 2019
12 annual flowers that thrive in full sunlight - The Daily Courier
Lantana’s fame is wide-spread. Miss Huff Lantana is the only variety that comes back perennially in the mountains of Arizona. This orange bloomer likes as much sun and heat as she can get! No animals bother, or eat lantana, including destructive javelinas.
Marigolds: Because marigolds are so ubiquitous, we don’t give them their due. These are extremely tough workhorses in mountain gardens. They do best in full sun and prefer being on the dry side. Deadhead spent flowers for endless waves of mop-top blooms well into autumn. An added benefit is their ability to repel mosquitos around the patio, as well as asparagus beetles, bean beetles, nematodes and even rabbits!
SunBelievable Brown Eyed Girl Sunflowers: This jewel for a backyard garden offers amazing summer color with large, vibrant blooms. An award-winning, multi-branching, heat-loving flower, it produces 1,000 flowers in a single season! Sunny yellow petals with a dash of rich red surround the large brown center of each sensational flower. Excellent in borders and containers.
Nierembergia: The difficult to spell name, Nierembergia, is from the name of Spanish Jesuit and mystic, Juan Eusebio Nieremberg. While the name is a mouthful, “Nierembergia” remains more popular than its common name, “Cupflower”. It’s a favorite in containers, but equally at home in the garden and makes an excellent edging plant.
Cleome: Its common name, Spider Flower, is appropriate for the long “legs” that jut out from the blooms. The plants flower from the bottom up, extending the bloom period for weeks. Cleomes are prodigious self-seeders, but because most are hybrids, you never know what colors will show the following year! These are tall flowers that branch out, most supporting themselves without staking.
Verbena: Blooming begins early in the season with bright purple flowers that continue well into cool weather. Several are Arizona natives with leathery foliage that critters find utterly detestable, so plant many where those pesky javelinas roam!
Zinnias: These well-loved plants genuinely love heat. They bloom so quickly that they are favorites to plant for cut flowers. Cut them and they will bloom again in just days! There’s a zinnia color for everyone, from peppermint stripes, to eye-popping golds, to delicate pastels.
Until next issue, I’ll be helping local gardeners with sun-loving flowers here at Watters Garden Center.
Ken Lain can be found throughout the week at Watters Garden Center, 1815 W. Iron Springs Road in Prescott, or contacted through WattersGardenCenter.com or FB.com/WattersGardenCenter.

Door to Nature: Thimbleberry Flowers and Fruit - Door County Pulse
Ontario, across the upper Great Lakes region to southern Alaska, into the Black Hills of South Dakota and south to the mountains of Mexico, Arizona and California.
There is little doubt in my mind that this sought-after fruit is at its very best in lands bordering the upper Great Lakes. The growing conditions in northeastern Wisconsin – always near the cool Lake Michigan shore, but away from the water’s edge – are similar to those encountered at a specific altitude on the wooded mountain slopes of the West.
Perhaps no plant genus – other than the Crataegus (thornapple) genus – is in such a chaotic condition as the Rubus when it comes to Latin names and identities. The genus has 250 to 700 species!
The outstanding thimbleberry is one of the well-proven and studied species. One place to admire them is along the roads bordering Lake Michigan northeast of Sturgeon Bay. Their large, five-petaled blossoms remind me of a single white rose set against handsome, deep-green leaves that are very slightly tacky to the touch and impart a clean, subtle perfume to the surrounding air. This would be my idea for a can of air freshener: clean, invigorating, but not overpowering or artificial.
What a pleasure it is to carefully walk through a patch of thimbleberries as you pick the fruit: no thorns! You don’t have to wear a suit of armor as when picking blackberries, when you earn every berry plucked off those thorny canes.
Prepare yourself for some slow pail-filling when you go in search of thimbleberries. Then line your pail with several of the huge plant leaves to cushion the delicate fruit as you put it into the container. Walk slowly and carefully because the huge, dense foliage tends to hide fallen logs.
I remember going to pick some thimbleberries one mid-morning during the dry summer of 1976. I was going through the rocky south point of Baileys Harbor with a plastic ice cream pail and had picked enough berries to cover its bottom when I looked at my watch. Holy cow! It was time to get home to make Roy his lunch. I hastened back to my car, and as I did, I tripped over a fallen tree, spilling all of my fruit onto the rough, rocky ground. That was it for my thimbleberry harvest that summer.
Thimbleberries tend to flatten when picked, and it’s important to pick them clean because it’s very difficult to pick out debris once they’re in the pail. When you’ve picked a pailful, you really have a lo... Jun 22, 2019
Low Water Plants of Many Colors - Prescott eNews
I've sprinkled in a few of my favorite tough annuals for a really outstanding garden. The list begins with the most common Arizona floral color:
Yarrow has low, ferny foliage of gray-green, with flat-topped bunches of tiny, pale to intense yellow flowers on skinny stems. Watters also has this plant with flowers of white, pink, paprika, and terracotta.
Primrose blossoms of bright, single, clear yellow flowers look a bit like poppies. Oenotheras (pronounced “ee-NO-thur-a”) are a great addition to any Arizona cottage garden.
Black-Eyed Susan, aka Rudbeckia, has giant, daisy-like flowers on 18-inch to 3-foot tall plants, depending on the variety. Commonly yellow, black-eyed Susan has a close cousin, Gloriosa Daisy, available in orange, lime, and red.
Lavender Cotton, aka Santolina is a classic Mediterranean-style plant with mounds of silver foliage and small button flowers of pale or bright yellow. Javalinas, rabbits, and deer detest the herbal taste of this evergreen perennial.
Butterfly Weed, or Asclepias (Pronounced “a-SKLEE-pee-us” ) produces clumps (3 feet tall and1 foot wide) of narrow leaves, and covered with clusters of bright orange flowers that butterflies love. There’s a popular yellow-flowering butterfly weed, too. Both are at their best with regular water, but will hang tough with little water once established.
Lewisia is an annual succulent that looks great in containers. In summer, rounded pairs of gray or green leaves provide an attractive background to the clusters of bell-shaped orange flowers.
Gazania is a classic annual low, mound... Apr 27, 2019
