Main Street Florist provides flowers for Illinois Senate inauguration - Macoupin County Enquirer Democrat
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 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.

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

Funeral flowers at Vets Home show Knapheide's patriotism
Posted: Sep. 7, 2018 10:10 am
To The Herald-Whig: I moved to Quincy six years ago to live at the Illinois Veterans Home and immediately noticed the wonderful American flag display at Knapheide Manufacting Co.'s 24th Street and Koch's Lane property. Beautiful display of love and respect! Now H.W. "Knap" Knapheide III has again shown his love of this great country by having his funeral flowers put up in front of all of the war memorials at the Veterans Home. Thank you, Knapheide family, and God bless you and God bless America. Louise Seaver Quincy
