Down To Earth: Spectacular Colors And Winter Flowers Make Witch Hazel A Garden Delight
Hamamelis x intermedia is a group of plants that have as parents H. japonica and H. mollis. Among these plants are the well-known cultivars Arnold Promise (the beautiful yellow), Jelena (a coppery-colored flower) and Diane (a red-flowering form).These plants tolerate our soils on the Cape well; are tolerant of sun to shade; and are remarkably cold hardy, usually to zone 5. There are several species that are worthy of mention, including H. mollis, the Chinese witch hazel, which grows to 10 to 15 feet in height and spread. Hamamelis vernalis is a native species that is quite hardy (zone 4) and can be found along streams from Missouri to Louisiana. Finally, the species Hamamelis virginiana, another native, can grow quite large—to 18 to 20 feet. It’s also found throughout much of the eastern US.Most of these plants grow to 5 to 6 feet in the average landscape, although they have the potential to get larger, depending on the cultivar chosen. Their broadly upright habit makes them ideal for use in most gardens and they work well even in a small space. They respond well to pruning and can be kept to 4 to 5 feet easily. They also add spectacular fall color, as do many plants in their family (Hamamelidaceae). Leaf colors in the fall can range from yellow to orange, gold and bright red. Fall color alone makes these plants worthy of use. They have spectacular foliage during the summer months as well, with rounded, slightly wavy leaf margins and a nice, clear green color.If you’re looking for a good resource for this genus, try Michael Dirr’s “Manual of Woody Landscape Plants.” He has a great chart listing all the relevant cultivars of each species. Arnold Arboretum in Boston has a wonderful collection and they should be in flower now, if you can make the trip.There are 33 cultivars listed in Michael Dirr’s manual.

Researchers study flower that catapults pollen
University of Washington), Robin Hopkins, assistant professor of organismic and evolutionary biology at Harvard and a faculty fellow of the Arnold Arboretum, and Stacey Combes, a professor at the University of California, Davis, used high-speed video to determine how fast the filaments move and to show how they target likely pollinators. The study is described in a recent paper in the journal American Naturalist."Those filaments are under tension, so when an insect comes along and pulls at them, they launch the pollen onto whatever is there," Switzer said. "There had been two longstanding hypotheses about these catapults. One was that they're used for wind pollination. But our findings point to the idea that the pollen attaches to pollinators that are likely to take it to another flower."Credit: Harvard UniversityThose filament catapults are actually long stalks that end with the male part of the plant, called the anther. When the flower develops, the anthers become stuck in tiny pockets on each petal. As the petals open, they pull back on the filaments, increasing the tension on them, and in effect leaving the catapults ready to fire.To understand the speed of those catapults and what they target, Switzer, Hopkins, and Combes conducted four studies.The first focused on the biomechanics of the catapults and tried to quantify how fast they fire pollen. The second created a heat map showing where the pollen was launched, while the third examined which pollinators visited the flowers. The final study involved preventing pollinators from visiting the plants as a way to investigate their ability to self-pollinate.The researchers' findings put the mountain laurel in rare compa...Nov 17, 2017

Family mourns Pierson girl killed in accident
Melody Dearborn. The friend, Karley Labaw, 14, survived the crash and was airlifted to Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando. Labaw is at home recovering from her injuries, Darian's family said.
Darian was laid to rest Wednesday after a service at Stetson Baptist Church. in DeLand. Instead of flowers, the family is asking that donations be made to the ARNI Foundation.
Karen King, a family friend, said Darian was “sassy but respectful” and started creating memories from the time she was born. She was 3½ weeks early and because she was breached, she was delivered by cesarean section, a birth Melody Dearborn will never forget.
“The doctor started singing: 'To all the girls I’ve sewn before,’” Melody Dearborn recalled between laughter and tears. “That was Darian’s beginning, very impatient to enter the world at 5 pounds 9 ounces.”
The child had a lot of spunk, learned quickly and was good at anything she tried, said her stepfather, George Martinelli, who taught Darian to shoot a long bow, rifle and handgun. Darian's heart, though, was in horses.
“Her barrel racing was just amazing,” Martinelli said. “She went into it with no fear.”
Darian was pretty, petite and tough, though she never used her toughness to bully anyone. She always stuck up for people, even those she didn't know, said one of her teachers, Ian Jackson.
"I always found it ironic that she loved horses so much; that she found joy in taking control over a massive animal," Jackson said. "She had a bit of that wild spirit in her; the spirit of a powerful horse."
Darian’s bond with horses began with her birth, said her father, Dennis Dearborn, a Volusia County sheriff's deputy. The family had been given a malnourished yearling that they nicknamed Booger and raised. When Darian was 2, she started riding the pinto, with her mother leading her around the barrels. Darian would lie in the pasture with the horse grazing near her or she would crawl under the horse in the stall. And when Darian was not paying attention, Booger would tug at Darian’s hair, her father said.
“That horse had a lot of ch... (Daytona Beach News-Journal)Apr 13, 2017
