Three wines to stock up on for Thanksgiving, plus 2 more to sip on warm days
I've had a few from northern Italy, and David Ramey makes a California kerner for his Sidebar label. This example from Michigan's Leelanau Peninsula grew on me, its flavors and aromas of white flowers, ripe peaches and apricots expanding as the wine shrugged off the refrigerator's chill. New to the Washington-area market, this may take some hunting, or you could ask your favorite retailer to order it for you. ABV: 12 percent.Distributed by Siema: Available in the District at Wagshal's Deli (Massachusetts Avenue); on the list at Maxwell Park, Momofuku CCDC. Available in Maryland at Wine Bin in Ellicott City, Wells Discount Liquors in Baltimore. Available in Virginia at City Vino in Fredericksburg, Department of Beer and Wine in Alexandria, In Vino Veritas in Keswick, Unwined (Alexandria, Belleview).
Domaine de Mus Rosé 2017
Pays d'Oc, France, $13 in 750-milliliter bottle, or $28 in three-liter box
This blend of grenache and cinsault is a delicious Provencal rosé, with racy flavors of melon and herbs and a slightly tart finish. The importer has sold out of the bottles, but the wine is still available in three-liter boxes, with more on the way. Consider that a nearly 50 percent discount on four bottles. That's a steal. Keep the boxes in mind for holiday parties, from Oktoberfest through New Year's. This is fun, food-friendly, delicious wine. ABV: 12.5 percent.Imported and distributed by Kysela: Available in the District at Cleveland Park Wine and Spirits, Magruder's, Rodman's.

Stobi Rosé 2017
This is an unusual wine, not just because we don't see many from Macedonia. It is a blend of the white rkatsiteli grape (native to Georgia) and the native Balkan red vranec. The mash-up is delicious, a basketful of fresh-picked berries with a squirt of citrus. ABV: 12 percent.Imported by Winebow, distributed by Winebow in the District, Country Vintner in Maryland and Virginia: Available in the District at Rodman's, Town & Country Market, U Street Wine & Beer; on the list at Ambar, Bistro Boheme, Hank's Oyster Bar (Pennsylvania Avenue), Sospeso.

Gardening: Thar be dragon fruit cactus growing fast and looming large
If you are interested in learning more about growing these and other exotic fruits, you might wish to connect with California Rare Fruit Growers, an organization with several chapters in the Los Angeles area. Contact them through the website at crfg.org.
Plant lovers are blessed (or cursed?) with the inability to drive by seldom-seen trees, shrubs, or flowers. We always stop to take a second look, even at the price of imperiling ourselves when suddenly swerving to the side of the road.
Five years ago, in two Valley locations about 10 minutes apart – one in front of a hotel on the corner of Ventura Boulevard and Orion Avenue in Sherman Oaks and the other on the side of an apartment building on the corner of Burbank Boulevard and Vesper Avenue in Van Nuys – I had to stop and take a closer look at newly planted smoke trees (Cotinus coggygria). Five years later, those specimens have been transformed into handsome domes of bronzish-purple foliage. As the weather cools, that foliage will change to orange-red and gold before dropping off.
Tip of the Week: Smoke trees, so-called because of faded flowers that resemble puffs of smoke, are moderately sized, reaching a maximum height of thirty feet. Given enough room to grow, they should never need to be pruned as they keep their natural, symmetrical shape from year to year. Trimming, which may eventually be necessary on sites where growth over sidewalks, entryways, or roof lines may occur, should be done with long sleeves and gloves since smoke trees are in the same family as poison ivy and poison oak and their sap is dermatitic to some people.

Autumn planting tips and ideas to liven up the garden
Sept. 22 are you ready?
With the colorful season come falling leaves, heavier clothing, and hopefully, getting your fall garden in order.
In Southern California, we are lucky to have mild temps for the most part - give or take a few months - when temps could dip into the freezing zone. But, don't think about that now.
Instead, as you put away your summer toys, bathing suits and other seasonal items, you might want to ponder fall gardening, and what home-grown goodies to plant in time for the holidays. Let's get some ideas for your fall garden from a few experts.
According to Cristin LaFromboise, color and foliage buyer, at Armstrong Garden Centers, 2200 E. Route 66, Suite 200, in Glendora, now is the perfect time to get busy with outdoor planting.
"Going into the tail end of summer, sometimes the garden starts to look a little tired," she said. "It is a great time to pop annual color into pots for instant color. Vinca and zinnias are the best choices to stand late summer heat.
"In Southern California, you can also put herbs in year-round. Basil, parsley and thyme are popular ones right now."
She said as summer turns to fall, it is wonderful time to plant... Sep 10, 2018

Stinky corpse flower in full bloom in California
SAN MARINO, Calif. -- Visitors were flocking to the Huntington Library in Southern California on Friday to get a whiff of a so-called corpse flower, known for the rotten stench it releases when it blooms.
The flower, nicknamed "Stink," began blooming unexpectedly on Thursday night, Huntington spokeswoman Lisa Blackburn said.
"We thought we had a few more days to go. But it was ready, and it was pretty spectacular," she said. "The great thing about these flowers is they're so unusual-looking and have this reputation for smelling really bad. It gets all kinds of people really interested in botanical science. It's just a charismatic plant."
Corpse flowers typically take 15 years to reach a mature blooming size, and blooms usually only last 24 hours.
The foul odour the plants emit attracts insects for pollination. The...
