Underused trees you can plant in your landscape - Pueblo Chieftain
Here are some ideas for underused trees you can plant to increase the tree biodiversity in your neighborhood:Aesculus flava (octandra) or Yellow Buckeye- Has an oval shape at maturity and can grow up to 50 feet tall. Yellow flowers appear around May. Has a great orange color in the fall. Ideally it would like a moist, well-draining soil, and it can adapt to our alkaline soils.Quercus muehlenbergii or Chinkapin Oak- Grows up to 45 feet tall and can spread just as wide if not wider. The leaves have a nice rust color in the fall. Being an oak, it will have an acorn that will mature in the first season.Pyrus calleryana ‘Whitehouse’ or Whitehouse Callery Pear- Has a columnar/pyramidal form. The leaves are glossy green, and long and narrow. Leaves turn reddish-purple earlier in the fall than other clones. The white flowers are a little later than other clones of Callery Pear.Crataegus x lavallei or Lavalle Hawthorn- It grows 15-20 feet tall and has a round to oval crown. The leaves are glossy green in spring and summer and copper red in the fall. It has white flowers that bloom in May or June and a red fruit that will last through winter.Maackia amurensis or Amur Maackia- Grows to about 20-25 feet tall and wide and has a round crown. The interesting bark peels when mature. It blooms in June and July with fragrant white flowers.In addition to these great underused trees, native species are also a wise choice. You can find a list of Colorado native trees here: https://extension.colostate.edu/topic-areas/yard-garden/native-trees-for-colorado-landscapes-7-421/ . Be on the lookout for my column next month where I will give some tips on how to properly plant a tree.Sherie Shaffer is the horticulture coordinator at the Colorado State University Extension office for Pueblo County.

Georgia roadsides dazzle with flowers and butterflies galore
I was surprised when I walked to the middle of the flowers. There were more Monarch's than I could count. There were also Common Buckeyes everywhere along with Gulf Fritillaries, Sulphurs, Skippers and an assortment of bees and wasps. Cosmos gets its name from the Greek word kosmos as in beautiful, decoration and ornament. Indeed, they are dazzling in the cottage garden, cut-flower garden, backyard habitat and along the road ways. Cosmos have daisy-like flowers 2 to 4 inches in width with orange centers. You'll find some selections of Cosmos sulphureus bearing double flowers. They are so easy to grow from seed, you can sow successive plantings to have blooms the entire growing season, especially if you want to have a bounty of flowers for the vase too. Next spring plant your seeds or nursery-grown transplants into loose, well-drained soil. Fertility need not be high for this Mexico native. Seeds germinate in five to seven days with blooms, bees and butterflies in eight to 10 weeks. Thin the seedlings or space transplants 12 to 36 inches apart depending on your variety. A web search will reveal a lot of varieties of both the Cosmos bipinnatus and the Cosmos sulphueus. Like the GDOT, don't be afraid to plant both species of this Aster relative together, it just may make your show complete. Although considered an annual, the cosmos gives a perennial-like performance by reseeding, which is perfect for the highway system and your pollinator garden too. These are tough plants, so water sparingly but when you do, water deeply, training those roots to go deep. Your volunteer seedlings may look a little different than what you originally planted when it comes to height, but they will nonetheless be dazzling. Sizzling partnerships can be created with blue forms of Salvias and Agastache also called anise hyssops and hummingbird mints.

Plant Lovers' Almanac: Enjoy the leaves, flowers and fruits of fall
Genetics, though not everything is a big player in disease.And now for something very different: I turn your attention to OSU’s Buckeye Yard and Garden Line (http://bygl.osu.edu). Tune in to the wondrous story told by Joe Boggs of OSU, talking about what he thought was an eriophyid mite infestation on wild sweet potato. This was right up Joe’s alley since he is an entomologist, and though mites have eight or four legs instead of six, they are still part of his interest zone.Then he thought it might be a fungus, then learned it was white rust, caused by Albugo, once thought to be a fungus, but now classified as an oomycete organism. It is a great tale, really, about diagnosing plant problems — and most importantly about being curious, even about something you thought you knew. Life, and Joe as Alice might say, are curiouser and curiouser.And as Mark Twain noted: “What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know. It's what we know for sure that just ain't so.” Jim Chatfield is a horticultural educator with Ohio State University Extension.

Several Cary Award-winning plants are known for their fragrance. This year's winner, native Bottlebrush Buckeye (Aesculus parviflora), has sweetly scented white flower spikes, is hardy to Zone 4 and grows in the shade. It is a good-sized shrub reaching 6 to 8 feet tall and deer don't seem to bother with it.Last year's winner was Korean Abelia (Abelia mosanesis). It is a small shrub that grows 4 to 6 feet tall and is hardy to Zone 4. It has no pests or disease problems and deer shun its glossy leaves. Once established it tolerates dry conditions and its extremely fragrant pale pink flower clusters attract butterflies.Native shrub Summersweet (Clethra alnifolia) is a previous Cary winner that grows in part shade, likes a wet location, and has luscious smelling flowers. Look for white or pink Ruby Spice. They bloom July and August, grow 4 to 8 feet tall and wide and are hardy to Zone 4. We have both and can vouch for their carefree nature and wonderful scent.If you love the look of wisteria but were afraid to try it, look for 2014 Cary winning American Wisteria (Wisteria frutescans). Unlike the aggressive-growing Asian varieties bent on world domination, this one only grows 10 to 12 feet a year and can be kept in check with annual pruning once it has finished flowering. Native to Texas, it has purple or white racemes of sweetly scented flowers that hang down in clusters from the vines.You can't go wrong with a Cary Award winner. They have been fully vetted and chosen for their excellent performance in New England gardens. To see all the past winners, go to caryaward.towerhillbg.org.Talking about vines don't overlook honeysuckle, annual sweet peas, sweet autumn clematis or the hyacinth-scented corkscrew vine (Vigna caracalla).If you can find the bulbs, you have to try Acidanthera. Also called Abyssinian glad or peacock orchid, it is in the gladiola family and is easily grown from bulbs each year. Other than its sword-like foliage, it doesn't look like a glad at all, but more like an exotic white orchid with a maroon throat. Tuck the bulbs into flower beds between other plants and when they blossom in late summer or early fall you will be surprised by how pretty and fragrant they are. Each bulb bears several flowers that are good for cutting.Become inspired to add plants for your other senses by reading Tovah Martin's new book The Garden in Every Sense and Season in which she encourages us to fully enjoy our gardens using all our senses – smell, taste, touch, sight and sound.

Monarch butterflies not alone in fall flowers
Monarchs do get most of the press, but there are several species of butterfly reported to be migratory - such as cloudless sulfurs, common buckeyes, red admirals, question marks and painted ladies. This year the painted ladies are reported in large numbers.Lantana at a good source, particularly this perennial form called "Ham and Eggs." (Photo: Carol Reese/Special for The Sun)Can we say that these butterflies are enjoying a rebound due to efforts of nature lovers choosing plants specifically for these fascinating insects? I’d like to say yes, but the science geek in me won’t allow it. One season, even a handful of seasons cannot supply the data needed to make a definitive statement. It would be necessary to keep track over many years and see the trend moving upward as an overall pattern, in spite of the occasional “bad year.” There is also difficulty in getting an accurate count of something that doesn’t cooperate with our love of statistics.Undaunted, there are those that tackle these difficult projects and could use your assistance. Not only can you be a “citizen scientist” but involving children and grandchildren will build memories and responsible character. It could even lead to rewarding career choices. You can find local groups that hold counts at this link. http://www.naba.org/counts/us_mx_map.htmlRead or Share this story: http://www.jacksonsun.com/story/news/local/2017/10/13/monarch-butterflies-not-alone-fall-flowers/759619001/...
