PCHS music program hopes to boost flower sales for its fundraiser - East Peoria Times-Courier
Drum majors are sent to leadership camp during the summer to acquire the skills needed for their position. Western Illinois University, Northern Illinois University, Eastern Illinois University and Illinois State University offer camps for wind and string instruments along with jazz band camp. McCann said that each year several PCHS students attend a national band camp in Nashville after they audition. PCHS helps pay costs for students to go.
“We never want to exclude a student because of financial hardship,” McCann said. “I don’t want to have to say, ‘Sorry, you can’t be in band because you can’t afford it.’ We are very well supported by PCHS. We have a substantial budget. This is a way to supplement it.”
McCann said they will happily accept donations if people do not want to have the flowers. The order forms may be dropped off or mailed to the PCHS Principal’s Office at 1903 Court St., attention PCHS Flower Sale.

The best new perennial flowers of 2019 - PennLive
Perennial Plant Association to spotlight great perennials that deserve more use in American gardens.
New in 2019 is another ornamental onion from Illinois' Intrinsic Perennial Gardens that Sinclair Adam, director of the Penn State Trial Gardens in Lancaster County, believes might be even better.
Adam gave 'Windy City' a nearly perfect score in trials of it over the past three seasons at Penn State.
"It blooms very well and maintains a compact, uniform habit," he says. "It's a strong mid-season bloomer, and the bloom color is a bit stronger than Millenium."</p>
Like Millenium, Windy City blooms almost all summer long with golfball-sized blooms of violet-purple atop 15- to 18-inch stems.
It's also attractive to butterflies but not very tasty to deer.

Main Street Florist provides flowers for Illinois Senate
By Misty Fritz
A Carlinville business had a chance last week to show off its best work for state officials: Main Street Florist, owned by Sarah LoBue, was chosen as the official florist of the 2019 Illinois State Senate Inauguration of the 101st General Assembly, held at the Capitol Building in Springfield on Wednesday, Jan. 9.
LoBue said Main Street Florist got the job through "pure luck," as someone in Springfield had seen the company's work and brought it up when florists were being considered. "They reached out to us, and we did a proposal for them, went up and met them in person, did measurements, saw what all the job would take," said LoBue. "It was just word of mouth, really.

The Thanksgiving cactus (Schlumbergera truncate) naturally flowers around Thanksgiving time because of decreasing daylight and temperatures this time of year.
Nothing symbolizes the holiday season to a horticulturalist like a holiday cactus in full bloom.
These fascinating plants are cacti, but not at all like the full-sun, desert-loving specimens we commonly think of.
Instead, these plants hail from the treetops of forests in Brazil, which is quite different than the desert ecosystems associated with other species of cacti.
They are all epiphytes, living in mostly shaded treetops and rooting into pockets of organic debris instead of soil.
There are three species of commonly available holiday cacti: the Thanksgiving cactus (Schlumbe... Oct 26, 2018
