Great Plant Pick: Rosa 'Golden Wings,' yellow modern rose
Christine Allen likes to describe them. The flowers seem set to take flight from the matte, light-green leaves. They develop from long, pointed buds and are borne singly or in clusters. Sweetly scented, the flowers of “Golden Wings” appear from June until October, and can be used in arrangements. In autumn, “Golden Wings” produces apple-green hips. The hybrid rose was introduced by Roy Shepherd in 1956.
Where: This vigorous rose flowers best in full sun with rich well-drained or sandy soil, but it will tolerate clay if the drainage is adequate.
Size: The rose shrub grows to be 8 feet tall and 6 feet wide when mature.
Care: It is a heavy feeder and benefits from a regular application of fertilizer. Provide regular watering during dry weather to encourage lush growth and repeat flowering. It can be lightly pruned in the late fall or early winter to protect from winter wind damage. Major pruning to develop the shape of the plant should be done in early spring when the leaves are beginning to show gr... Jun 14, 2018
Gardening with Allen: Can't stop these perennial flowers
Allen Wilson is a Vancouver gardening specialist. Email Allen Wilson at email@example.com.
I understand that there are a few perennial flowers that bloom continuously through the summer like annuals. Would you share some of your favorite varieties?
The most outstanding nonstop blooming perennial flower I have grown recently is the Colorita series of Peruvian Lily (Alstroemeria). Plants grow 8 to 12 inches high and are covered with lily-shaped flowers in crimson red, orange, rosy pink, yellow and white from May to October. I have seen a purple variety online but not in local nurseries. I planted three varieties three years ago, and they keep getting larger (2 to 3 feet in diameter). Although they do not have long stems, flowers make long-lasting bouquets. There are also some taller varieties that grow 18 to 24 inches tall.

Flowers, volunteers return to Arlington for Memorial Day weekend tradition
WASHINGTON — As volunteers honor fallen heroes at Arlington National Cemetery this weekend by placing roses at headstones, those who are also interested in helping the effort can do so with a donation.
“Our goal is to make sure that every headstone gets a rose in front of it. That would be about 280,000 roses. And then making sure that every visitor on Monday gets a flower to place at the headstone of a loved one,” said Robin Penaherrera, founder and director of the nonprofit Memorial Day Flowers Foundation.
“Ten dollars will place a rose on 12 headstones; $100 will actually get you a bucket of 125 roses,” said Robin Penaherrera, founder and director of the nonprofit Memorial Day Flowers Foundation. (Courtesy Memorial Day Flowers Foundation)
The tradition started in 2011 and has grown to include 31 other cemeteries across the country.
At Arlington, at least 1,200 volunteers are expected to take part this year. Last year, they had 750. A large number of volunteers... Jun 14, 2018
Flower growers reluctant to cultivate seasonal varieties due to water shortage
It is hard for them to cultivate alternative crops, but despite fears and challenges, they are opting to cultivate other crops.Farmers said many of them are unaware of the alternative irrigation methodology such as drip and sprinkling. Similarly, greenhouse technology for floriculture is yet to come to them to save this major industry, they added. They demanded the government to ensure proper water or help adopt alternate methodology of irrigation to save this important industry, which provides sources of living to hundreds of families in the province.

645000 red poppy flowers to fill new Memorial Day display
Each flower represents and honors a fallen service member. Visitors to the new installation will be able to dedicate a digital poppy through on-site kiosks and those unable to see the display in person are able to dedicate poppy flowers online.
Bird said the Poppy Memorial is a somber and powerful display to remind people what Memorial Day is really about.
“To not forget. To recall and remember those who have sacrificed,” said Bird. “That is the significance and the purpose of Memorial Day.”
The red poppy flower came to symbolize the bloodshed on the battlefield after a poem was written by Canadian Lt. Col. John McCrae who was serving on the front lines of World War I. The flower is a widely recognized symbol in remembrance of these servicemen and women.
