The real dirt: Adding composite flowers to your garden
Other useful more compact cultivars in our area include G. x grandiflora "Arizona Sun" which has stunning mahogany-red rays rimmed in golden yellow. It reaches a height of twelve inches, and blooms sooner than many other cultivars. G. x grandiflora "Mesa Peach" and "Mesa Red" grow a bit taller, to eighteen inches, with peachy-yellow and deep red petals, respectively.
Finally, plants in the genus Aster are perfect plants to think about at the beginning of the fall season because they add spectacular color in the autumn. Aster plants are very durable and long lived.
Plant asters in early to mid-spring, or buy them now, in pots, to add fall color to a sunny porch or deck. They should be trimmed back in early spring and again in June to maintain bushiness; deadhead occasionally for more blooms. Divide every two to four years in the spring to maintain vigor and flower quality.
The plants can be used in many places: asters work well in borders, rock gardens, or wildflower gardens. As a bonus, asters attract butterflies.
Many varieties of Aster are available, Aster × frikartii “Wonder of Staffa” has the longest blooming season. It is a repeat-blooming aster that produces lavender-blue two-inch-wide flowers from summer into fall on bushy plants. It grows to three-feet tall and one- to two-feet wide and prefers full sun and average, well-drained, dry to medium soil.
Cut plants back by half in midspring to encourage bushiness. Divide in spring to maintain vigor as required. But be advised, this is a plant for USDA zones 4-8, a bit cooler than the valley floor, so it will not live as happily here as it will in the foothills.

Horticulture expert brings floral design class to ASU
Morgan Anderson, florist and floral art advocate, arranges stones in her cacti arrangements at her home in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018.
By Jessica Ferrigno
Spring semesters bring new flowers and new classes to ASU, including a new stem class, but this one has no connection to the engineering school.
Florist and floral art advocate Morgan Anderson is bringing floral design coursework to the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts.
Anderson received a master's degree in horticulture, the science and art of growing plants, at Kansas State University and her doctorate in horticulture from Texas A&M University. She also taught classes in floral design at both universities.
Anderson will teach a topic course called Wellness in Floral Art for the 2019 spring semester at ASU. The class will focus on how flowers relieve stress and affect the senses.
"It's biophilia, so we're being connected back to nature, which is where we come from," Anderson said. "Working with plants is a therapy, so not only is it a therapy for me to educate others on floral design as an art form and a stress reliever, (but) it's also awesome to see other people benefit from it."
While 90 universities in the U.S. off... Sep 10, 2018
Farm-Fresh Flowers and Lobster Rolls Aplenty
Jesse Marlo Lazowski's many, many travels. Her most recent collection, inspired by a road trip across Arizona and New Mexico, yielded arrowhead-shaped drop earrings and a squash blossom necklace inspired by the society heiress gone rogue (a famous proponent of the Americana-style necklace) Millicent Rogers. Other collections pull from those Art Nouveau letters that dance across shop signs in Budapest, and Greco evil eyes-ancient negative-vibe warding talismans. But between all these fruitful sojourns (her passport was most recently stamped in Puglia, Matera, and Mykonos) Jesse returns year after year to Nantucket, where she and her family have spent nearly every summer. "It's where I come to collect my thoughts and transform my inspiration into jewelry designs," she says.Given the sweeping views she enjoys from her family's shingle-style home in Nantucket's Madequecham, it's not hard to see why she continuously returns to the New England beach island, famous for its preppy red trousers and superbly crafted baskets. To the south of her house, the Atlantic ocean shifts in color-from deep blue to steely grey-depending on its mood. Jun 14, 2018
'Field Notes:' All About The Bitterroot, Montana's State Flower
Rockies, ranging from southern British Columbia and Alberta to the high-altitude deserts of New Mexico and Arizona. Dormant for nearly ten months of the year, the bitterroot flowers in May or June and blooms only briefly. The plant uses stored energy from nighttime moisture to open its flowers in the morning. The flowers close during the sunny afternoons and evenings to preserve their energy. Each brilliant blossom contains 60 to 70 tiny seeds, which are spread when the bloom dries and detaches from the plant and the wind blows the flowers across the plains. An enduring part of the culture and landscape of this region, the bitterroot was voted the Montana state flower in 1894. Anyone could vote, no matter age or gender. When the polls closed, 5,857 ballots were in. More than 32 separate flowers received votes. But the bitterroot was the clear winner with 3,621 votes, and has been our state flower ever since. Lewis And Clark are often credited with the discovery of the plant. In fact, its scientific name is Lewisia rediviva. But long before Lewis and Clark came along, the bitterroot was a staple in trade and cooking for several indigenous tribes, namely the Salish people who lived in the bitterroot's habitat. A sack full of the dried herb commanded a substantial price in trade. Documents show that a sack of the root could be traded for a horse. Salish women collected the root before the flowers of the plants bloomed, because that's ... Jun 14, 2018
