Flowers by Pesha finds room to grow in Troy
Pesha and her family have served the Capital Region for more than 30 years. After her father, Solomon Jabour, retired from Pesha Gift & Garden Center, it was time for Pesha to go out on her own, starting Flowers by Pesha in 2005.
Since that time, Pesha has grown into an award-winning florist, winning the Troy Record’s Readers Choice Award for “Best Florist,” Wedding Wire’s “Couples Choice Award,” and most recently “Best Florist” in the Alt Weekly Best Of 2018: People & Places.
“We are in great company with these awards, and extremely proud and honored to be recognized by the customers we serve,” Pesha said in the release. “This humbling experience couldn’t be possible without the loving support of our family, friends and our loyal customers.”
Even more support was shown at Thursday’s gathering in the new Broadway shop. “I’d like to welcome you to this corner of the downtown,” Troy Mayor Patrick Madden said during the ceremony. “The great turnout today is a tribute to the excellent work you do. Great work here, a beautiful space. I’m thrilled that you’re over here. I’m thrilled that you stayed in Troy. We’re delighted that you invest in downtown Troy and show that confidence.”
Assemblymember John McDonald, Rensselaer County Legislative Liaison Harry Tutunjian, Rensselaer County Legislator Cindy Doran and Troy City Council President Carmella Mantello along with representatives from the Rensselaer County Executive’s Office, the Downtown Troy Business Improvement District and Rensselaer County Regional Chamber of Commerce all offered their kind remarks to Flowers by Pesha as well.
“You are in a new hot spot here,” Assemblymember McDonald said to the Kings, calling it a smart move.
Flowers by Pesha is a full-service floral shop, offering wedding and event services, sympathy and funeral arrangements, as well as every day floral arrangements. Plants, balloons and Uncle Sam’s All-American Chocolate Factory chocolates are also for sale at the new shop.
In its new location, Flowers By Pesha is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday by appointment only.

Flint woman brings color, flowers and friendliness to the east side
FLINT, MI-- When Megan Heyza planted a garden in front of her home off of Franklin Street, she had no idea the movement it would spark in her community.
Heyza moved to the east side of Flint two years ago. There was a reputation for drugs and crime in her community and she wanted to do something about it.
"I wanted to create a new reputation of community members being able to lean on their neighbors," Heyza said.
Once her garden was planted, Heyza noticed more people would walk past her house and talk with her.
That's when an idea to make the east side friendlier sparked, and Heyza would start helping her neighbors build the same bridges by planting flower beds in their front yards.
After sharing her idea with one of her regulars at Tim Hortons, where she works, Heyza started a block association so her project could be funded.
"He said the problem is you're talking about doing it, but you need to just do it and everything will fall into place," Heyza said. "I got the idea down on pape... (int woman brings color, flowers and friendliness to the east side)Sep 10, 2018
Endangered corpse flower plant to bloom for first time at Toronto Zoo
The zoo says the corpse flower will bloom for just eight to thirty six hours sometime this week.
The facility’s curatorial gardener, Paul Gellatly, says the plant typically flowers every seven to 10 years, but the one at the zoo is just five years old.
The plant is native to the Indonesian island of Sumatra and smells like rotting meat while blooming, which attracts carrion flies and beetles for pollination.
Gellatly says the flower is endangered in Indonesia and will become the first in the Toronto area to ever bloom.
The zoo will extend its hours to allow visitors to see the plant.

Discover 6 great flowering shrubs for shade
Shade doesn’t have to be a liability to gardeners. While populating small shady corners with hostas, ferns, begonias and other shade-loving herbaceous plants brings texture and color to those areas, it’s more challenging to find the right flowering shrubs for larger shade-filled garden beds.
Today, I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite flowering shrubs for shade. Whether you use them to spruce up your foundation plantings, add some color to a “tree island” in your front yard, or tuck them under large deciduous trees like oaks and maples, these shrubs thrive in areas that receive less than a few hours of sun per day. They do quite well under the filtered canopy of deciduous trees or on the north side of houses and other structures. They are understory shrubs that are meant to grow in areas with limited sunlight.

Aug 14, 2018 at 5:54 PM
ROCKFORD — Visitors to the Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens are in for a stinky treat seven years in the making.The conservatory’s Titan Arum plant, also known as the corpse flower, could bloom any day now. Once it blooms, it will give off a distinct smell of rotting flesh."I've been watching it on YouTube and I hope I can come back in person once it blooms," said Deb Sanson of Rockford.The plant flowers every seven to 20 years, and the bloom only lasts 24 to 48 hours. The 6 foot, 5 inch tall plant weighs around 66 pounds and was donated by the Huntington Botanical Gardens in Pasadena, California, in 2011.Regular admission rates apply to see the plant, and those interested can keep updated on the plant’s progress by visiting the Conservatory’s Facebook page or the live webcam on the Rockford Park District’s YouTube page.Arturo Fernandez: 815-987-1345; firstname.lastname@example.org; @ArturoFernandez

An azalea alternative for shady, damp spots: Georges Plant Pick of the Week
Here's PennLive garden writer George Weigel's Plant Pick of the Week for this week:
* Common name: Drooping laurel, leucothoe
* Botanical name: Leucothoe fontanesiana, Leucothoe axillaris
* What it is: These are two versions of a native, broadleaf evergreen shrub with glossy, pointed leaves, an arching habit, and white flowers in spring. Drooping laurel produces "suckering" shoots that expand the plant's reach if you let it. 'Rainbow' is a particularly nice variety with deep burgundy winter foliage.
* Size: Plants grow 3 to 4 feet tall and slightly wider. Drooping laurel (Leucothoe fontanesiana) will creep outward farther. Leucothoe axillaris is more bush-like and less suckering.
* Where to use: Both of these species prefer shady to partly shady spots with good soil moisture and organic-rich, acidy soil. A shady rain garden or shady damp area is ideal. Northern or eastern foundations are also possibilities. Avoid hot, dry, windy areas.
* Care: Scatter an acidifying, organic granular fertilizer formulat... ( azalea alternative for shady, damp spots: George's Plant Pick of the Week)
