Add vibrant colors and fragrances to your desert garden with salvia - The Desert Sun
Next year you'll know in advance what to buy based on what performs this year.
When buying Autumn sage, choose a quart or gallon size. These have nice well-developed root systems that aren't yet distorted by longterm container culture. They're young enough to penetrate deep into natural soil early on for greater drought resistance overall. Large container soil masses underground in the desert can actually discourage rooting out because the potting soil is so moisture retentive. Yet, if the potting soil mass gets dried out underground, you won't know it and the soft root tips die back. Only by gradual saturation by a drip hose can you re-wet that large root ball because the components of woody matter and powdery silt resist re-wetting.
Whenever I spot a Cleveland sage, Salvia clevelandii, in full azure blue bloom, it always catches my eye since blue flowers are rare. Wands of blooms reach two feet with whorls of flowers that fall to reveal unique seed pods excellent for dried arrangements. This species seems to thrive in hot dry places and are not amenable to perennially moist ground or any inhibited drainage. For large desert gardens with rock outcrops with succulents and cacti, this sage is perfect for spotting into existing irrigation systems without excessive water demand. That compatibility is rare in large perennials except for sage that is a natural in the hot, dry setting.
Everywhere in California, fall is the best time for planting perennials, and the only time to plant them in the low desert. Plants you buy and install this time of year will have a long, mild fall to adapt to their new home before winter frost. Root systems will be reaching into natural soil deeper and deeper so your Cleveland sage gives a big flower show and the Autumn sage cranks up in the fall to start early and continue nearly year-round.
Drought plants are hard and salvias are soft, so together they balance each other out in the garden. Aug 22, 2019
How does Encore Boston Harbor keep its flowers so fresh? Meet the shrub whisperer - The Boston Globe
AdvertisementThey purchase flowers about a year in advance and work with a range of vendors to bring plants to bloom: seed companies, propagators, and growers.“None of these are flowers that you can just go buy off the shelf somewhere,” he said in the Encore Boston Harbor lobby not far from some of his workers, who were adding fresh yellow and orange arrangements. “You start talking about 4,000 flowers every two weeks — there are not a lot of places that can do that.”Walking through the casino’s front entrance, Chadwick explains the thinking behind the thick-leaf blend of yew and Japanese white pine nearby (a pleasant look for people being dropped off on one side; a protection for outdoor diners at the fancy Sinatra restaurant from the glare of headlights on the other).Brilliant floral beds formed a carpet around a trio of sculptures.(David L. Ryan/Globe Staff)The son of a landscape designer and a landscape installer, Chadwick regales you with the story of some of the 89 Scotch pines, all dug up in far-flung places, trucked to Everett and placed just so for the right Wynn Resorts look. Chadwick speaks with joy about the weeping cherries and Taylor junipers, about how he has a desk, but “most of the time, my office is out here.”He tells you about tree number one, an autumn splendor maple, that stands as a marker of the site’s transformation from a polluted former Monsanto chemical factory to a high-end casino resort. (He doesn’t mention the Exelon power station that is still across the street.)AdvertisementHe explains how to build a six-and-a-half-acre park after cleaning up loads of toxic waste: planting the trees, then putting in the walkways, layering in shrubs, and installing irrigation.And he describes the awe he feels seeing the property filled with people, finding serenity in the natural landscape he helped create.He encourages you to walk the property.And so you find your way to the harborwalk near the river and you look toward Boston. You can’t even tell you’re standing right next to a casino, with all its beeping and flashing slots, hoots and hollers at the table games, money lost and won — but mostly lost — in an instant.You can’t tell you’re near a hulking power plant, with its towering smokestacks.p class="paragrap...
