Betty Montgomery: Snowdrop plants add warmth to winter gardens
Nancy Goodwin of Montrose Garden in Hillsboro, North Carolina, is noted for the wonderful display of snowdrops in her garden. She is the one who got me interested in growing them after seeing photos of the fabulous displays in her woods. She has one long path through her oak forest that I would love to try to duplicate one day.
There are many different species of snowdrops and some have different requirements. Goodwin states that G. nivalis and G. elwesii are ones that grow best in her garden. She has found that the fancy-named varieties do not grow and bloom for her as well as others, but she has had good luck dividing the ones that preform well for her. She says that as they are growing in her garden, she starts dividing them and spreading them along her snowdrop path in the woods.
Goodwin has created a woodland setting that is ideal for her climate. It is cold enough for them to grow and they get enough sunlight under the deciduous trees. She thinks this is an ideal way to display these charming flowers because the white stands out against the brown leaves. They return year after year and as the clumps grow, she divides them, and moves them to locations in her garden. Not all of her snowdrops are along a path. She has some displayed in small pockets tucked in a rock garden and other areas. They do look best in a mass planting due to their small size.
To do well, snowdrops need to have temperatures that drop to at least 20 degrees Fahrenheit but not colder than 30 degrees below zero. This gives them the “chilling” time they need to flower properly. These bulbs are native to the Mediterranean area where they are cold in the winter and hot in the summer.
It is thought that the Romans brought snowdrops to England. (Spartanburg Herald Journal)Dec 8, 2017
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
