How Azaleas Became the Signature Flowers of the South - HowStuffWorks

Carolina, where azalea gardens can be found blooming in naturalized beds during the spring, along with thousands of tulip bulbs; Airlie Gardens in Wilmington, North Carolina, complete with 67 acres (27 hectares) boasting more than 100,000 azaleas; and Brookgreen Gardens, between Myrtle Beach and Pawleys Island in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, where you'll find a former rice plantation sporting one of the largest collections of outdoor sculptures in the U.S. on 551 acres (223 hectares) surrounded by azaleas, camellias and live oaks. So, why have azaleas become the signature flowers of the South? While these plants can be grown in many areas across the U.S., they prefer the moist, well-drained acidic soil and partial shade of the Southeastern U.S. "Due to their showiness and their adaptability to the climate — making them pretty easy to grow — they are popular in the region," explains Patricia Collins, who is now retired after serving 52 years as director of gardens, education and volunteers for Callaway Gardens. Azaleas tend to be popular in the Southern region as ornamentals due to their evergreen leaves, adds Scott Fanello, editor of Totalgardener.com. "They offer beautiful flowers in the spring and deep green leaves year-round," he says. "Plus, the flowers virtually cover the bush, adding more color in the spring than almost any other plant other than annuals, which you have to replant every year." Now, For the Basics ... Azaleas belong to the genus Rhododendron, while evergreen azaleas are in the subgenus Pentanthera and deciduous azaleas are in the subgenus Tsutsutsi. Azalea flowers generally have five stamens, and rhododendrons 10 or more. Azalea leaves exhibit hairs parallel to the leaf surface, usually along the midrib on the underside of the leaf, and tend to be thinner, softer and more pointed than rhododendron leaves. Azaleas flower along the sides of the stems, as well as at their ends, while rhododendrons usually flower only at the ends. According to the Azalea Society of America, azaleas have been hybridized for hundreds of years, with almost 10,000 different varieties having been named since that time. The different varieties of azaleas are classified as being species or hybrids. Species grow from seeds (unless crossed with other species or hybrids), and hybrids are crosses between other species or hybrids that can be reproduced only from cuttings that are clones of the mother plant. Meanwhile, they offer a wide variety of plant habits, si...

Filling Laurinburg with flowers - Laurinburg Exchange

Over the years Leggette said she’s given flowers to people all over Laurinburg to Raeford and has even made it outside the area in places like Wilmington. “A man once asked to buy some from me and I said ‘they’re not for sale you take them and when they bloom in two or three years if I’m still living,” Leggette said. “We have around 75 almost in the blooming stage.” She added that the flowers themselves are very sturdy and invasive plants that are hard to kill. Once a car ran off the road and into the yard knocking over the plants and despite an attempt of replanting the plants died. So it was cleaned up but the plant came back the next year despite everything. The gardenias are also tough as the plants have survived several storms like Hurricane Florence and have stayed rooted in place while trees have been knocked down. Despite all the success with the gardenia’s Leggette insists that she doesn’t know much about flowers but enjoys working with the gardenias and giving them to people. “I feel like I’m leaving a little part of me in Laurinburg,” Leggette said. “And I hope that it makes people happy to see them.” Reach Katelin Gandee at 910-506-3171 or at [email protected] .neFileBlock { margin-bottom: 20px; } .neFileBlock p { margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px; } .neFileBlock .neFile { border-bottom: 1px dotted #aaa; padding-bottom: 5px; padding-top: 10px; } .neFileBlock .neCaption { font-size: 85%; } ...

Flowers blooming in October?

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Have you noticed something strange with your plants and bushes since Hurricane Florence? October is here and leaves aren’t falling but, flowers are blooming. - Advertisement - Hurricane Florence made a huge impact on gardens and will continue to over the next couple of weeks. Warm and humid weather conditions are making for a very unseasonable response. “What’s happened is that the storm and high winds caused a lot of stress on our trees and so when it comes stressed its natural reaction is to make sure that if it passes or dies is that it has babies that are going to live after it goes,” said Susan Allison Brown, NHC Consumer Horticulture Culture Agent. Brown says it will not last long because the plants will soon go dormant and preserve their energy for spring. So, what happens if we get more fall like temperatures? Airlie Gardens Grounds Maintenance Supervisor Scott Childs says it could affect future seasons. “If it go...
