COLUMN: The golden flowers of the trumpet tree - yoursun.com
Have you seen the yellow flowering trees in bloom on Cochran Boulevard in Port Charlotte? Their relatively short show provides eye-catching beauty that reinforces the appreciation for our subtropical climate. What are these ornamental trees that explode with canary-yellow blossoms at this time? They are one or more species of trumpet tree with names such as the Golden Trumpet tree, the Yellow Trumpet tree, and the Silver Trumpet tree. These trees are small to medium in height and put on quite a show in season.Trumpet trees are native to tropical America and are valued landscape ornamentals seen throughout South and Central Florida. The identity of these trees can get a bit confusing due to their common names, so let’s stick to Latin for a moment. The genus of these flowering trees has changed, so instead of the well-known Tabebuia, they are now Handroanthus.Handroanthus chrysanthus (sometimes called the golden trumpet tree) is a bit cold tender and better adapted to the warmer parts (and microclimates) of Charlotte County and southward.

Trilliums: The floral stars of early spring in Georgia's woodlands
Trillium rugelli), in various stages of bloom last weekend drew several members of the Georgia Botanical Society to a woodland path in the Cochran Shoals Trail of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. We were not disappointed. In one area, scores of nodding trilliums nearly covered the forest floor.RELATED VIDEO:Along the way we also admired two other species: the pink-flowered Catesby’s trillium and the maroon-flowered Sweet Betsy trillium.Trilliums’ name come from the Latin word for three, or tri. Trillium blossoms have three petals, three sepals, six stamens and a three-celled ovary. A large solitary flower—white, pink, red, maroon or yellow, depending on the species—blooms above a cluster of three large leaves.With the warmth of early spring, trilliums quickly send up stems, leaves and flowers before the forest canopy leafs out. By summer, after they have produced seeds, the trilliums’ above-ground portion will be gone. For the rest of the year, they will persist as underground rhizomes until they emerge again next spring.Mature trilliums, in fact, can live as long as 100 years.IN THE SKY: From David Dundee, Tellus Science Museum astronomer: The moon will be full on Tuesday. Mercury is low and Venus and Mars are very low in the west around dusk. Jupiter rises out of the east around sunset and will appear near the moon on Monday night. Saturn rises in the east just before midnight. (MyAJC)Feb 9, 2017
Flowers take the spotlight
December: providing flower arrangements for a float in the 128th annual Tournament of Roses Parade.
Cady, who owns Flowers by Maria at 2768 Cochran St. in Simi Valley, was commissioned by the City of Burbank a few weeks ago to create 13 flower arrangements for its “Home Tweet Home” float featured in the Pasadena parade on Monday.
The 57-year-old said the City of Burbank’s Rose Parade float committee contacted her late in the game because the florist they usually use hadn’t responded to them. One of Cady’s employees, Melissa Kegel, has been a member of the committee for several years and suggested her boss.
Photos courtesy of Maria Cady “I jumped at the opportunity because I’ve always wanted to work on the floats,” Cady said.
Despite being given only 12 days to fulfill the request, she said, she wasn’t worried about getting the arrangements done.
“I’ve done big events, like weddings and large parties, but I’ve been a florist a long time so it wasn’t something that made me nervous,” she said. “I knew I could do it and was up for the challenge.”
Audrey Prest, decorating chair for the Burbank Tournament of Roses Association, said she was excited to work with Cady. The all-volunteer nonprofit is charged with designing, building and decorating the city’s float for the parade.
“We wanted a casual, homegrown feeling for the design, which Maria was on board with,” Prest told the Acorn last week. “She has a very good eye as a florist, and she’s very good at what she does. We’re glad she’s doing the dozen or so flower arrangement... (Simi Valley Acorn)Feb 3, 2017
Lack of flowers common on young azaleas
My azaleas are slowly turning white! Marc Cochran, Snellville
A: I agree that lacebug control is difficult with sprays. The best solution is to use a systemic insecticide that contains imidacloprid (Bonide Granules, Bayer Tree and Shrub, etc). This will make the azalea sap poisonous to insects. You’ll likely get control for two years.
Q: I bought a Meyer lemon in October and planted it in a 16-inch wide pot. I brought it indoors in late November. It is now blooming profusely and dropping perfectly green, healthy leaves at the same time. Steve Preston, Decatur
A: My bet on why the leaves are falling is that it’s getting much less light than it had outdoors or at the nursery. Like a ficus tree, a citrus tree’s response to light depends on how much illumination it receives. If they don’t get enough light, they drop leaves. All you can do is add fluorescent lights closely around the tree.
Q: I have a beautiful, lush, green fescue lawn that has turned yellow/tan over the past week. It was planted in fall of 2014. My maintenance company has fertilized three times so far. It was green before this last cold spell. Is there anything I can do to prevent/ correct this? Angel Tedder, email
A: I think you have eliminated the possibility of the grass being too young, since it was planted a couple of years ago. We’ve also eliminated lack of fertilizer, since your company has fertilized properly. In your case the only explanation left is simply cold damage from temperatures a couple of weeks ago. See if the grass greens up after this week of warm weather.
