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. In searching through nursery catalogues, typically you’ll be hard-pressed...Mar 8, 2018
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
