MYSTERY PLANT: Mystery Plant leaves have medicinal smell
This is a tree, potentially a very large one, up to 120 or so feet tall. It is a common forest component from southern New England through the lower Ohio River Valley, all the way to Texas and through the upper half of Florida. You don’t see it too much in the higher elevations of the Appalachians, but otherwise, it is a standard component of many woodland environments throughout the Southeast. It seems to prefer rich, moist river bottoms, and tolerates a fair amount of flooding. It is adaptable to drier settings, too, and is a rapid colonizer of old fields and agricultural settings once given a chance.The bark on large individuals is a handsome grey, finely braided. Twigs commonly bear odd, corky outgrowths, sometimes as a series of warty bumps, or perhaps as prominent ridges. (Don’t ask me what they are for. A lot of structures on plants seem to have no apparent utility or function.)But it is the leaves of this tree which instantly separate it from everything else: nothing else has smooth leaves with five – sometimes seven – lobes. They are toothy, and when crushed they release that distinctive medicinal scent. Indeed, maple leaves are similar in shape, but note that a maple’s leaves are always “opposite” or two-at-a-time on the twig, rather than our Mystery Plant’s, whose leaves are alternate, one at each node. By the way, for autumn color, this species is hard to match. Its leaves are variable from tree to tree, commonly bright gold, but also orange, ruby red ...Mar 8, 2018

Korge matriarch celebrates 100th birthday with family, friends
Chris Korge. Josephine Korge graduated from St. Mary’s, a Catholic women’s college in Ohio, with a degree in chemistry and went to work with the Sperry Gyroscope Company. She was part of the development of the Norden bombsight, the precision aeronautical instrument that helped the U.S. and its allies win the Second World War.“Her generation saved the world,” Chris Korge said. Afterwards, she moved to Miami, and met and married war veteran George Joseph Korge. He died 31 years ago, but she still lives in the Roads-area house they bought in 1957.“Christmas was always fun for them,” said another son, attorney Tom Korge. “My dad was obsessed with Christmas and he had a big Nativity scene in the front yard. He even set up music for it.”“My parents embraced people of all faiths and cultures,” Chris Korge said. “The guys who built our Nativity scene were gay, I realized later. My parents treated all people with respect.”Josephine Korge sent her three sons and daughter, Kathy, to Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic School, where the family were members until 1977. They then joined the new St. Jude on Brickell Avenue, the church they had helped support. Josephine Korge was president of the church’s Lady’s Guild and was a founding member of the feast of St. Jude’s annual festival which “to this day is still a major church event,” said family friend John Kiskinis, president of Kiskinis Communications. She also was extremely active with her husband in all of Congressman Dante B. Fascell’s campaigns, he said.She’s been like a second mother to him, Kiskinis said, and to so many others.“I’ve been attending school and been close friends with An... (Miami Herald)Dec 8, 2017
Poinsettia: the Christmas plant
Misting the plant between watering provides needed humidity, especially in a dry, heated room.
A study at Ohio State University found the poinsettia leaves are not poisonous for humans or pets if ingested. However, eating them can create an upset stomach. The milky sap is a skin and eye irritant, especially for those allergic to latex. 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.

In The Garden | What to plant in October
True lilies are liked by deer, so the flowers must be protected or sprayed with a repellent spray.The Ohio Lily Society has a bulb sale each October at Kingwood. This year, the sale is from noon to 3 p.m. Oct. 21 in the workshop. Bulb prices are low and Lily Society members will answer your questions about lily cutlure.Question/answerQ: Can lime and fertilizer be applied to a garden at the same time, or do they neutralize each other?A: They can be applied at the same time, but it's better to apply lime in the fall when it has several months to react with soil. Then, add fertilizer in the spring before planting to get the maximum benefit. Fertilizer applied in the fall may leach out by spring planting time.Q: Why don't trees in a forest need fertilizer when landscape trees need it?A: Forest trees do also need fertilizer. Forest soil is rich in humus, which results from decay of fallen leaves, which are high in nutrients. Their decomposition is an important source of soil nutrients.A city tree doesn't have an environment rich with humus because leaves are raked up and removed from the lawn. We use those leaves as compost to apply to gardens or use as a mulch layer. The forest floor is a rich source of nutrients year after year. Q: What are some fertilizer ratios for different plant groups?A: Vegetables and flowers, 1-2-2; fruit trees, 2-1-1; lawns and shade trees, 3-1-1. The first number is nitrogen, second is phosphorus and third is potassium.Richard Poffenbaugh is a retired biology teacher and active home gardener since 1960.
