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)

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)

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. Listen to Walter Reeves Saturday mornings on News 95.5 FM and AM750 WSB.

Labor Day was a last hurrah for pool users — and a longtime supervisor

Green, said she particularly liked playing on the crocodile platform. The pool also has a beaver platform and fountains. Regular pool user Laura Cochran said she and her two children were not too sad to say goodbye for the fall and winter. “We’re ready for the cool weather,” she said. “We’ve enjoyed it all summer.” The municipal pools will reopen on Memorial Day, May 29, 2017.
