This Week in the Garden | Add a water feature to your garden - Santa Cruz Sentinel

Garden centers carry many ready-to-use pool forms and fountains as well as pumps and other essentials if you prefer to design and create your own. Allen's Hummer bathing in a fountain. (Sharon Hull -- Sentinel correspondent)Erythranthe cardinalis (Streamside Monkeyflower). (Sharon Hull -- Sentinel correspondent)A Wilson's Warbler bathes in my fountain. (Sharon Hull -- Sentinel correspondent)Speckled canna. (Sharon Hull -- Sentinel correspondent) A big part of the appeal can be the specialty plant palette that a water garden provides. Water plants not only add beauty and texture, but they also play a vital role in keeping the water clear and the various elements of the pool in balance, adding oxygen and filtering impurities from the water. As they cover the water’s surface, they can also slow down evaporation. Find aquatic plants and expert assistance at local garden centers. Before you go plant shopping, know your water element’s size and depth, whether it is in sun or shade, and your approximate high and low temperatures (or Sunset zone.) These facts will determine which plants will thrive for you. Water plants are categorized according to how and where they grow. Some plants float on the water’s surface; many of these are excellent oxygenators. Others grow submerged, with only the tips protruding through the water’s surface; these can also be good oxygenators. Another group likes to grow in bogs or very wet soils and is suitable for the damp margins of a pond. Most of the bloomers require sun but you can choose from several with colorful foliage to substitute for flowers if your pool or bowl is in shade. Tolerating shade or partial shade are the following: floating Water Hyacinth with blue flower spikes (note: it may not bloom well unless in some sun), Parrot’s Feather with fluffy fern-like foliage and outstanding oxygenator qualities, Chameleon Plant with foliage that is mottled pink, cream and green, graceful Papyrus that comes in several mature sizes, Water Clover whose patterned leaves are good in shallow water, and Golden Sweet Flag that adds bright leaf color in a shaded...

Miss Floribunda: Flowers for shade - Hyattsville Life & Times

Hyattsville's tree canopy can present challenges to gardeners, but many experienced local gardeners know how to bring their "shade gardens" to bloom. Dear Miss Floribunda, I know where you live! Now that I have your attention, I want you to know this is not a threat. But I do know where you live because someone pointed your yard out to me, and I also know that you are gardening all wrong but getting away with it. Your yard is full of trees and shaded by trees from neighbors, yet you have irises, peonies and roses blooming their heads off, and lilies in bud. I know enough about gardening to know these plants need full sun. Please tell me the secret. I spend my time weeding out unplanted vines and wishing I could get rid of some of the things I did plant. Impatient with Impatiens, Hostile to Hostas, Weary of Periwinkle and Tired of Liriope on Livingston Street Dear Impatient, Hostile, Weary and Tired, I’m almost afraid to tell you this, but you will need to make a little effort to find out what specific varieties of sun-lov...

Gardening with Allen: Mulch effectively stymies weeds - The Columbian

Allen Wilson is a Vancouver gardening specialist. Email Allen Wilson at allenw98663@yahoo.com. I have a lot more problems with weeds than my neighbor. He says that bark dust mulch is the main reason he has fewer weeds. Does bark mulch make that much difference? Yes, a 1 1/2 – to 2-inch layer of mulch will reduce weed seed germination by about 90 percent. Weed seeds can live in the soil for many years. As soon as they are turned up to light it stimulates germination. Placing any kind of mulch on the soil will have the effect of preventing light from reaching the weed seeds. Perennial weeds which sprout from underground stems or roots such as Canada thistle are only controlled by a physical barrier such as weed barrier fabric. Volcanic rock, coarse gravel and other kinds of decorative rock can also be used to reduce weed growth. A new artif...

12 annual flowers that thrive in full sunlight - The Daily Courier

Chili Peppers: These plants generally are not grown for their flowers, but for their spicy to extremely hot peppers. Most are small and challenging to harvest, but someone noticed how beautiful they are and thought to try them in the flower garden. The shapes of the plants and their pretty blossoms also are fine additions to vegetable gardens. Cosmos: For cutting flowers, cosmos are about as easy to grow as it gets. You can find them in vibrant, bright shades of pink, purple, orange, red, soft pastels, and even white. The flowers are 2 to 3 inches in diameter and just keep on blooming right through summer. This flower is sturdy against mountain winds and intermingles well with other summer bloomers. This is another enthusiastic self-seeder, but not to the point of becoming a nuisance. Cypress Vine: Tubular, star-shaped, red flowers and ferny leaves make this vine an ornamental climber. It’s in the same family as Morning Glory and grows just about as quickly, reaching 10 to 15 feet in no time. This vine will grab onto other plants or a trellis, so make sure to guide it where you want it and secure it with ½-inch green tie-tapes. Lantana: For desert blooms through summer’s heat, Lantana’s fame is wide-spread. Miss Huff Lantana is the only variety that comes back perennially in the mountains of Arizona. This orange bloomer likes as much sun and heat as she can get! No animals bother, or eat lantana, including destructive javelinas. Marigolds: Because marigolds are so ubiquitous, we don’t give them their due. These are extremely tough workhorses in mountain gardens. They do best in full sun and prefer being on the dry side. Deadhead spent flowers for endless waves of mop-top blooms well into autumn. An added benefit is their ability to repel mosquitos around the patio, as well as asparagus beetles, bean beetles, nematodes and even rabbits! SunBelievable Brown Eyed Girl Sunflowers: This jewel for a backyard garden offers amazing summer color with large, vibrant blooms. An award-winning, multi-branching, heat-loving flower, it produces 1,000 flowers in a single season! Sunny yellow petals with a dash of rich red surround the large brown center of each sensational flower. Excellent in borders and containers. Nierembergia: The difficult to spell name, Nierembergia, is from the name of Spanish Jesuit and mystic, Juan Eusebio Nieremberg. While the name is a mouthful, “Nierembergia” remains more popular than its common name, “Cupflower”. It’s a favorite in containers, but equally at home in the garden and makes an excellent edging plant. Cleome: Its common name, Spider Flower, is appropriate for the long “legs” that jut out from the blooms. The plants flower from the bottom up, extending the bloom period for weeks. Cleomes are prodigious self-seeders, but because most are hybrids, you never know what colors will show the following year! These are tall flowers that branch out, most supporting themselves without staking. Verbena: Blooming begins early in the season with bright purple flowers that continue well into cool weather. Several are Arizona natives with leathery foliage that critters find utterly detestable, so plant many where ...
