MYSTERY PLANT: Mystery Plant closely resembles holly | Features - Aiken Standard
This is one of the most common woodland understory shrubs in Eastern North America, occurring from Quebec and Ontario down to Texas. It is present in a wide array of habitats, on both low ground and in the mountains, and it seems to prefer damp places. It is a shrub that does very well indeed in considerable shade.Sometimes it's hard to distinguish a large "shrub" from a small "tree," and this plant is sometimes in between. Normally, though, it gets to about 6-7 feet tall. Its leaves are smooth and dark green and shape-wise are fairly boring. In the autumn, though, the leaves put on a terrific show, becoming bright yellow. Its flowers appear early in the spring, before the leaves. The flowers are quite small and yellowish, crowded into small clusters up and down the stems. This species is dioecious. That is, individual plants are either male or female, as the flowers are unisexual. The flowers of "male" plants produce only pollen; "female" plants produce ovules, and, ultimately, a one-seeded, fleshy fruit. The fruits are brilliant red and quite conspicuous. Various birds like to eat the fruits and so scatter the plants throughout the habitat they are in. There's more natural history, too: This plant is a... Oct 10, 2019
Gardening: Some plants are gifts that just keep giving - OCRegister
It doesn’t take long for new plants to start to appear and not too long after that mature blooming plants.” — Dee Van Dam, North Ontario
In the manner of alyssum, some plants are gifts that keep on giving. There is no reason to run to the nursery to buy annual flowers when you have these on hand since their seeds germinate with ease.
Often referred to as sweet alyssum (Lobularia maritima) due to its flowers’ delicate fragrance, there is really nothing that compares to this annual bedding plant, which does not exceed one foot in height, as a garden selection. It is often utilized for edging around planter beds on account of its mounding growth habit, yet it can admirably cover large beds on its own — a true blanket bloomer — where it takes on the look of undulating white foam. When used for edging a bed of annuals, it contrasts well with yellow and gold marigolds, red salvia (Salvia splendens), and blue mealy cup sage (Salvia farinacea). You can also alternate rows of alyssum, a member of the cabbage family, with rows of royal blue lobelia, a mounding plant of similar dimensions. Finally, alyssum makes a suitable subject for container gardens as it spills charmingly over the edges of your terra cotta or ceramic pots.
If you are conscientious, like Ms. Van Dam, in shaking out your alyssum blooms as soon as they fade, you can have alyssum flowers virtually non-stop throughout the year. Seeds germinate in two weeks’ time and are flowering in four more weeks af... Sep 19, 2019

Air quality a concern after fire engulfs St. Catharines flower farm - CBC News
Jeff McCormick, acting fire chief for St. Catharines Fire and Emergency Management Services. Smoke, however, remained a concern. Officials from Ontario's ministry of the environment were on the scene Saturday, and a spokesperson said they have been collecting air samples for analysis. "Preliminary downwind air monitoring results are below emergency screening values," Andrew Buttigieg said in an email. "Local watersheds have been sampled and monitored. Early results show dissolved oxygen and pH readings being good." Buttigieg said the city is collecting douse water which is being trucked to Port Dalhousie sewage treatment plant as a precaution. 'Like a bomb went off' The fire was in a structure that is a series of greenhouses and outbuildings and about 650,000 to 700,000 square feet in total. "It's a significant-sized fire," McCormick said. "Probably, this would be the most significant fire that I have had of my 33-year career." The fire also spread across the grass and caused a "significant" bush fire, the city of St. Catharines said in a release. Crews worked all night to bring the fire under control. (David Ritchie) Firefighters were called to the farm shortly after 11 p.m., and crews from five departments were able to contain the blaze after several hours of effort. As many as 125 firefighters were battling the blaze at its peak, McCormick said. "It was like a bomb went off," said Bill Van Vliet, a neighbour who saw the blaze around 2 a.m. There were flames shooting in the air and "fire tornados," he said. "I've never ... Jul 26, 2019
