Gardening: When flowers overstay their welcome

It sends roots up to a couple of feet, and because it is tall, it can shade-out and out-compete other flowers. As the Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland pronounce, “Off with her head!”For removing any plant with extended roots, I like the CobraHead weeder. It is curved like a single steel finger, and can be used to loosen the soil under and around weed (or thug-like flower) roots. I gently tug on the flower stem, while loosening the roots. Beebalm, like most plants with long roots, has nodules in the roots. If you break the root, new plant stems will grow from a nodule.Another difficult plant is Obedient Plant (Physostegia virginiana). What a funny name for a plant that is not the slightest bit obedient. Its roots are problematic because they break so easily, more so than any other plant I know. They send down a tap root that breaks off, even if you have loosened the soil. And it can take over a garden in just a season! I no longer allow it in any of my garden beds, but have moved some to the edge of the woods where deep shade on one side, and lawn on the other, can control it.All that said, Obedient Plant is a lovely cut flower. It has strong square stems (like mints), and for me it grows up to 5 or 6 feet tall. It lasts well in a vase, with pink or white spikes of many small flowers. I had it in full sun in rich, moist soil, and it ran like crazy!There is a form of Obedient Plant that has green and white leaves, and it is much more obedient! Like any variegated-leafed plant, this one has less vigor because it has less green chlorophyll to make the food that feeds the roots and flowers. I grow this one, though I find I often need to stake it to keep the flower stems from flopping over.Another potential thug that I allow in my garden is common teasel (Dipsacus fullonum). Hated by corn farmers in the Midwest as an invasive weed, it spreads by seed, not root. It’s a biennial. The first year of its life it does not flower, but produces distinctive long, light-green leaves (often with little wart-like bumps) in a low rosette. The second year it sends up a flower stalk up to 6 or 7 feet tall, and produces a seed head that is like a piece of sculpture.Individual teasel flowers are ver... (The Providence Journal)

A double whammy: two corpse flowers produce stinky scent in rare dual blossoming at the Chicago Botanic Garden

Corpse flowers don't always blossom as expected. The garden's Spike failed to bloom in August 2015, but Alice did so a month later, followed by Sprout in April 2016.Garden senior scientist Greg Mueller said the reason why so many titan arums in the garden's collection have bloomed "is they are all the same age, so they are just mature and ready to bloom."He added he had no idea when the next one will bloom and did not know how often it would occur.Vitt said she doesn't expect another bloom anytime soon."Every time one of these plants blooms, it provides another opportunity to learn more about their life history, which we would never learn unless we were in the jungle islands of Sumatra," Vitt said. "This is a wonderful experience."Daniel I. Dorfman is a freelancer for Pioneer Press. (Chicago Tribune)

Meet the Banksy of florists leaving gorgeous displays around NYC

Central Park, showering Robert Indiana’s iconic “Love” statue on Sixth Avenue and 55th Street in white daisies and dressing up Central Park’s “Alice in Wonderland” statue with a garland of roses.Miller has also filled several dark-metal trash cans with multicolored blossoms as if they were giant vases. And on Election Day, he masterminded a design that spelled out “vote” with pink flowers under the Washington Square Park arch.“Who doesn’t love to get flowers?” Miller told Vogue this week. “They are such a luxury, and New York City is a very gritty, fast-paced town. If we can bring nature — something wild and sumptuous — to New Yorkers and make them smile, the way people smile when they witness a random act of kindness, then that is a great thing.”‘There is something sort of ‘Banksy-esque’ about what we do, which is fun and exciting!’ -Florist Lewis MillerThe “Imagine” rainbow ring, devised in October 2016, was Miller’s first project. On his Web site, he describes how he and his staffers arrived at 5:45 a.m. in order to finish by sunrise.“Quickly working in the dark, my team and I created a psychedelic halo of day-glo yellow, pink, purple and orange dahlias and carnations,” he wrote. “We had hoped for smiles, the ones that happen when you witness a random act of kindness. That was my goal, my vision. Create an emotional response through flowers.”To their relief, park workers wielding leaf blowers and brooms allowed the blooms to stand.To make these works, Miller recycles flowers from other (paying) events his firm designs. Although he documents the projects on Instagram, he never reveals a location in advance.Marking his ... (New York Post)

5 reasons you should head to the brilliant Cambridge University Botanic Garden this spring

Here, you can experience nature without even leaving Cambridge. Head in through the main gate in Trumpington Street and you’ll be transported, like Alice through the looking glass or that little girl in the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, to another world.What’s good at the Botanical Gardens at the moment? Here’s what the experts reckon should be coming into their own at this time of year.Syringa 'Buffon'The lilac, Syringa 'Buffon' will be coming in to full flower in the Scented Garden.The gardens’ website says Syringa 'Buffon' is a “selection of a hybrid raised from a cross of S. oblata and S. vulgaris”. It is a large shrub with large, fragrant pink flowers.Strongylodon macrobotrysA brightly-coloured jade vine is bearing numerous “pendent racemes”, which hang beneath a canopy of foliage in the glasshouses.Strongylodon macrobotrys, or jade vine, is a climbing member of the pea family. In the wild the jade vine is under threat from extensive deforestation.Dicentra spectabilis 'Alba'The Dicentra spectabilis 'Alba' has gained the common name of bleeding heart. It’s a clump-forming herbaceous perennial of the papaveraceae (poppy) family.The bowing racemes of heart-shaped flowers emerge from a mass of soft green, ovate or lobed leaves. The flowers will endure into the summer months in sun or partial shade, providing the plant is grown in moist conditions. The pink-flowered form can be seen in the Woodland Garden.Daphne ...
