Flowers beginning to bloom on Tyler's historic Azalea Trail
Greg Grant, the Smith County horticulturist for the Texas A&M Agrilife Extension, is predicting a normal season."Cold winter affected camellias but (I) haven’t seen any damage on azaleas other than some foliage," Grant said in an email. Guy and Joan Pyron are hosting the Azalea Trail ribbon cutting this year. The couple has participated in the festival for 24 years.Guy Pyron was less optimistic about the azaleas than Fourniquet. He said gardeners generally expect the last freeze could come anytime before March 15. Additionally, he said the azaleas haven’t bloomed yet, and may not bloom in time for the Azalea Trail.“This year they’re very, very tight,” Pyron said of the buds. “I’m not sure they’re going to show at all. On a day ... with the sun shining, they start popping up, but I’m not sure they’ll be fully out.”The Azalea Trail tradition dates back to 1929 when a nurseryman named Maurice Shamburger sent boxcar loads of azaleas by train from Georgia to Tyler, according to a history from Visit Tyler.That year, Mrs. Sarah Butler of the then-Tyler Courier Times Telegraph supported Shamburger in his efforts to plant azaleas around the city and planted her own azaleas at her own home, according to Visit Tyler.The azaleas grew in popularity. In 1960, the Tyler Area Chamber of Commerce established an official route five-miles long with 60 houses where visitors could see azaleas, according to Visit Tyler.The Azalea Trail brought 15,000 visitors in 1962, and the tradition has grown to attract, in some years, more than 100,000 visitors to the city, according to Visit Tyler.A hallmark of the event is the Azalea Belles, a group of young women in high school who dress in antebellum gowns and act as ambassadors on the trail. There are 35 Azalea Belles in 2018 who attend high schools across Smith County.The event runs for three weekends and ends April 1.TWITTER and INSTAGRAM: @_erinmansfield...Mar 8, 2018
MYSTERY PLANT: Mystery Plant leaves have medicinal smell
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 or a deep russet. Of course, now in the early spring, the leaves are...Jan 12, 2018
Texas' mark on the season's festive flower
Poinsettias have become a staple of the season, but did you know the Christmas flower has ties to the Texas border?In 1825, President John Quincy Adams appointed the first U.S. minister to Mexico: Joel Roberts Poinsett. Poinsett traveled south to Mexico with the task of renegotiating the U.S.-Mexico border and bringing Texas into the U.S. once and for all. At that time, the Southern border of the United States sat at the Red River, north of modern-day Texas. President Adams dreamed of the United States extending all the way south to the Rio Grande River, and he was willing to pay $1 million for that prize. Of course, Mexico saw great value in Texas and did not budge.Unfortunately for him, Poinsett never succeeded in his mission of purchasing Texas. However, during his failed attempt in moving the U.S.-Mexico border, the amateur botanist discovered a plant near Taxco de Alarcón so beautiful that he cut its stems and had them sent back home to the United States. He mailed the vibrant red blooms to friends, fellow botanists and botanical gardens across the country, and by 1836, — the very same year Texas won its independence from Mexico — the flowers had become widely known across the country not by their scientific name (Euphorbia pulcherrima), but by the name of the diplomat who brought them here: poinsettias.Today, Texas is a top poinsettia producer, though cultivating the red Christmas poinsettias is no easy feat.

Pursuit of these 'pass-along' plants likely will encourage friendships to bloom, too
Some of the best plants in North Texas gardens are almost never sold in area garden centers. For generations the only way you could get them was to ask for a “start” from a friend, relative or neighbor who had them. They came to be known as “pass-along plants” and they were some of our most prized possessions as gardeners.Nowadays that list is dominated by heirloom plants. Reseeding larkspurs are a great example. You’ll see them sprouting up in older neighborhoods amid reseeding petunias, old white flag iris, double Kwanso daylilies and other spring bloomers. Larkspurs’ ferny foliage shows up with the first warm days of February, and the plants are covered in full blue, lavender, pink or white flowers just a few weeks later. If you see these and like them, ask that the gar... (Fort Worth Star Telegram)Jan 12, 2018
Freeze creates ice sculpture and brings on seldom-seen 'ice flowers'
Cold weather can be brutal, and this week's weather has even been deadly in Texas and across the U.S.But it also can lead to some rare and amazing sights. Among them are sculptures formed when automated sprinkler systems spray water that envelop lawns and shrubbery in sheets of ice, when fountains freeze into stalactites and, rarest of all, when ice flowers form on plants as temperatures plummet.All have been drawing oohs and aahs this week, including the heavy ice forming on the fountain at a busy crossroads near downtown, where passers-by were stopping for a closer look and to get photos. As the fountain outside the office of Dr. Kayvan Kamali, 920 Judson Road, Longview, continued to pump water, it grew more ice and drew more visitors.Less seen were "ice flowers" forming on frostweed as temperatures dipped early...
