Poinsettia: the Christmas plant
It is always a good idea to keep the plants out of the reach of children and pets
North Carolina connection
If purchasing a poinsettia this holiday season, it is likely that it was grown in North Carolina. Our state is one of the top 10 growers in the country. Locally, the Van Wingerden Greenhouse in Mills River ships close to a million plants within a 350-mile radius.
No matter your favorite poinsettia color, we wish you the good cheer and celebration that these beautiful Christmas plants symbolize.

Ask a master gardener — peonies can be grown here
Colors include black, coral, cream, crimson, pink, purple, rose, scarlet, white, and yellow.Two types of peonies are grown in North Carolina — garden peonies (Paeonia valbiflora or Paeonia officinalis) and tree peonies (Paeonia suffruticosa). Garden peonies are herbaceous perennials) grouped into five types according to flower shape: single, semidouble, double, Japanese, and anemone. Tree peonies produce large numbers of flowers on a shrub-like plant; the stems do not die back each year.Peonies grow best in cool climates. In general, most of the newer peony cultivars do not perform well in the South because they were bred and selected in northern nurseries and do not receive an adequate amount of cold weather in North Carolina. Many of the older cultivars perform reasonably well in North Carolina including Baroness Schroeder (white), Felix Crousse (red), Festiva Maxima (white double with a crimson center), Felix Supreme (raspberry), Mons. Jules Elie (medium pink double), Sarah Bernhardt (apple blossom pink), and Teresa (pink).Peonies grow best in full sun, but will tolerate light shade. Peonies require winter cold to flower. To encourage flowering, plant on a northern exposure and do not mulch in the winter. Flower size will decrease due to root competition from nearby trees an... (New Bern Sun Journal)Nov 17, 2017

Monday on Dr. M.L. King Jr. Boulevard directly across from Snap Fitness. As usual, they sell only fresh-cut North Carolina Fraser Firs, and they will limb and load your tree for you. Their proceeds go to so many local causes (i.e. building handicap ramps, Craven County Special Olympics, MERCI Clinic, RCS and many others in this area).I hope to see many of you while shopping or dining between now and year’s end.Judi Lloyd lives in River Bend and can be contacted at email@example.com.

Roger Mercer: Some plants have wings to help imaginations fly
Cape Fear Botanical Garden.Dear Roger: Please help me find a source of rugosa rose, a spreading, pink rose which thrives in coastal North Carolina conditions. I have been to some local garden centers but have not had success. — Katie Marshall in Orrum.Dear Katie: Eighteen excellent varieties of Rosa rugosa and its hybrids are offered by Heirloom Roses. The list of rugosas along with descriptions is available at https://www.heirloomroses.com/roses/rugosa-roses.html and the company’s other contact information includes the following: Heirloom Roses, 4062 NE Riverside Drive, St. Paul, Oregon 97137 The phone number is 800-820-0465.Rugosa roses, as you suggest, are so tough they are nearly indestructible. They make plenty of suckers, or offshoots, and they are always creeping out of the rose beds. All that's necessary to have more is to dig off a sucker.As to varieties, I am especially fond of ‘Rubra,’ Blanc Double de Coubert,’ ’Topaz Jewel,’ ‘Hansa’ and ‘Alba.'Many varieties are still in bloom now and are the showiest and most strongly perfumed plants in any rose garden. ‘Rubra' is a single rose. `Hansa,’ is a very double hybrid, as is ‘Blanc Double de Coubert.’ 'Topaz Jewel’ is a light, dull yellow, but unique in color among the rugosas.Dear Roger: You incorrectly identified the anemones at St. John's Episcopal Church as Anemone blanda. They are Anemone coronaria. — Knowledgeable in Fayetteville.Dear Knowledgeable: You're right. I goofed. I've grown both, so I can tell you the blandas are smaller, delicate flowers, usually in shades of blue, white or occasionally pink.The coronarias are a florist strain developed in southern France. They have larger, brilliant colored flowers in blue, red and white.Another florist strain from France that I've grow is called De Caen. Its flowers are intermediate in size between blanda and coronaria, but the flowers are double and have the bright colors of the coronarias.All are good garden plants in the Cape Fear region. The coronarias and De Caen strain prefer very mild winters, like those in the south of France. Blanda is hardier and requires more cold to perform well.All should be soaked in warm water for about an hour before planting, which can be done in either spring or fall. Do not soak in liquid fertilizer, and never fertilize the plants heavily. They prefer open, sunny sites with light, well drained soil. Avoid heavy mulches.Send your questions and comments to Roger at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 424-4756. You may write to Roger at 6215 Maude St., Fayetteville, N.C. 28306...
