Where to See Winter Wildflowers in the Ozarks - 417mag
Willis says they’re known for their unusual maroon flowers that bloom on bare branches.Kings River Falls Natural AreaHead south to Arkansas and Willis says it’s like jumping ahead a few weeks. This scenic area (1543 Madison 3500, Witter, Arkansas) is home to a variety of species like Spring Beauties, Toothwort, Rue Anemones and Trout-Lilies. There’s only one trail here, which closely follows a stream. “Stream-side trails like this one are a good place to look for early flowers because the soil still has enough moisture near streambeds even though spring rains haven’t started yet,” Willis says. “The tree-less space over and at the edge of a stream also lets more sun get to the ground, so these areas warm up a little quicker.”
Prairie State ParkOccasionally, Prairie State Park (128 N.W. 150th Lane, Mindenmines) will host guided winter hikes to see some of its winter wildflowers. According to the park’s website, tallgrass prairies once covered more than a third of Missouri, and today, less than 1% remains, much of it preserved at Prairie State Park.

Karen Hannis Meinhart Obituary - Mt. Holly Springs, PA | Cumberlink Sentinel - Legacy.com
They married in 1975, and together they traveled the world with the US Air Force, living in Arkansas, the Azores, Delaware, Texas, Germany, Rhode Island, and Virginia. They settled in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where they built a warm and welcoming home in which to grow old together and filled it with art from their family's adventures together. Karen worked as an administrator and human resources professional with the US Government and retired from federal service in 2016. She is survived and lovingly remembered by her husband of 45 years, Richard Meinhart of Carlisle; her daughter, Lauren Meinhart of Oslo, Norway; her son, David Meinhart, of Philadelphia; and five siblings: Jeanine Johnson of Emmaus, Sheila Mangano of Clifton, Virginia, Steven Hannis of Easton, Brian Hannis of Naples, Florida, and Kelly Cuetara of Downingtown. She was preceded in death by her brother, Michael Hannis, of Santa Rosa, California. She will be remembered as a selfless and caring mother, wife, and friend, as well as an unmatched home cook and Christmas cookie virtuoso, who filled the house with her wonderful singing. She was an aficionado of Broadway musicals and art museums; an avid reader of news and current events; and a dog lover, among the many passions that she passed to her loved ones.

Breaking ground: Warm winter has landscape plants confused - NWAOnline
IVE PLANT OF THE MONTH
Possum-haw is just one of the common names for deciduous holly. There are two species of deciduous hollies that are native in Arkansas — Ilex decidua is commonly called possum-haw, and Ilex verticillata is commonly called winterberry. These common names are often used for either plant.
Both are beautiful and can add color to the winter landscape.
They have separate male and female plants. The female plants are covered in red or orange berries in the winter. While only the female plants produce fruit, a male holly is needed for pollination.
'Sparkleberry' is a variety of deciduous holly. (Special to the Democrat-Gazette/Janet B. Carson)
Typically, there are plenty of hollies in landscapes with male plants that can aid in pollination. Ilex verticillata will produce better berries if you plant a male cultivar in with the females. Some that are usually readily available:
• Females — 'Sparkleberry,' 'Red Sprite,' 'Winter Red' and 'Winter Gold.'
• Male cultivars are 'Jim Dandy,' 'Apollo' and 'Southern Gentleman.'
For the Ilex decidua plants, the most commonly sold variety is 'Warren's Red' for the female and 'Red Escort' for the male plant.
Usually one male plant is all that is needed to pollinate four or five female plants.
Deciduous hollies make excellent large bushes or small trees in the sunny landscape. They have nice green foliage during the growing season, but the females shine in the winter landscape when the leaves drop to allow the fruits to show their full glory.
The berries are an important food source for many birds. Full sun is best, but with at least six hours of sun they can set fruit. They appreciate some added water during extended dry periods.
Deciduous hollies are native to Arkansas. (Special to the Democrat-Gazette/Janet B. Carson)

Business Spotlight: Blooming Business - Springfield Business Journal
Eden’s Flower Truck, a similar business concept, launched in Springfield in 2018. Owner Eden Garrett earlier this year moved the business to Arkansas, where the flower truck serves the Bentonville and Rogers areas.
Hartman says she’s starting to see the trend grow nationally.
“Since we’ve started, I’ve seen more pop up across the country,” Hartman says. “I still get emails pretty frequently asking how to start a flower truck, and the whole concept is gaining momentum.”
Kate Penn, CEO of the Society of American Florists, says retail floral sales have been growing – to the tune of $35 billion in 2017, a $2 billion increase from the year prior, according to a U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis report on personal consumption expenditures.
Penn says the mobile floral business is catching on, and she describes it as “experiential, interactive purchasing.”
“There’s a lot of innovation and entrepreneurialism in the flower-buying space right now,” Penn says, noting floral sales have steadily increased during the last decade. “There is a big trend across retail right now, and the floral industry is no different. It’s the idea of trying to do something creative that makes what you’re purchasing interactive and memorable and fun.”
The consumer appeal, she says, is being able to walk down the street, stop at a flower truck and purchase flowers by the stem, or create an individual bouquet. “It’s a super smart business model,” Penn says.
