MYSTERY PLANT: Mystery Plant closely resembles holly | Features - Aiken Standard

All of these plants are placed into the laurel family or "Lauraceae," which also includes the true laurel and avocado.One of the old-timey common names for this shrub is "Benjamin-bush." I've tried to figure out how it got that name, and here's my idea: The whole plant is aromatic and pleasantly fragrant. One of the compounds producing this fragrance is an organic substance referred to as "benzoin," which is found in a number of different plant groups. The name "benzoin" was also applied to a fragrant gum used medicinally. Now, since our Mystery Plant has a long history of folk use as a medicinal plant and is in fact a source of the compound benzoin, many people began calling this plant "Benzoin bush." But that got gradually corrupted into the name "Benjamin bush," which was perhaps a bit less clinical than using the chemical name. However that name became established, the plant has been used as a source of tea and for medicinal tonics. And for flavorful toothpicks.(NEWS FLASH: There is a relatively new plant disease out there now called “laurel wilt,” known now from the coastal counties of the Carolinas, Georgia, Alabama and all of Florida. It kills members of the laurel family, including native species such as red bay. Our Mystery Plant is susceptible to this disease, as are other species in the same genus. This is a serious problem now for ecologists and forest managers. You will probably start hearing more about it, unfortunately.)[Answer: “Spice bush,” Lindera benzoin] .ctct-form-embed.form_7 .ctct-form-defaults {background-color: #f2f2f2;} div.ctct-form-embed div.ctct-form-defaults {font: 14px 'Open Sans', sans-serif; padding: 10px 20px; margin-bottom: 10px; border-radius:0px;} div.ctct-form-embed div.ctct-form-defaults h2.ctct-form-header {font: 18px 'clarendon_fsbold'; border-bottom: solid 1px #cccccc; padding-bottom: 8px;} div.ctct-form-embed div.ctct-form-defaults p.ctct-form-text {font: 14px 'Open Sans', sans-serif ;} div.ctct-form-embed form.ctct-form-custom div.ctct-form-field {margin: 0 0 12px 0;} div.ctct-form-embed form.ctct-form-custom label.ctct-form-label {margin-bottom: 5px;} div.ctct-form-embed form.ctct-form-custom input.ctct-form-element {height:30px;} div.ctct-form-embed form.ctct-form-custom button.ctct-form-button {padding: 8px;} .g-recaptcha {display:none;} ...

Cooperative Garden Promotes Food Self-Determination for Santa Ana - VoiceofOC

When it’s growing season, CRECE is one-third of an acre of abundance: cucumbers, guava, lettuce, corn (five kinds), avocado, pomegranate, raspberries, peppers (10 kinds) and much more. “This farm has grown over 100 different crops,” says Evelyn Estrada, who became a volunteer after returning from the Peace Corps in the Philippines. “It’s teaching us so many lessons.” JULIE LEOPO, Voice of OCEvelyn Estrada, 32, fixes the vines growing along the garden work station at the CRECE Cooperative Garden in Santa Ana. CRECE stands for Community in Resistance for Ecological and Cultural Empowerment. You might wonder, how is a garden an act of resistance? Clara Leopo, a senior at UC Irvine explains. “Because I feel like a lot of grocery stores are expensive and not accessible to families here,” says Leopo, who grew up in Santa Ana. “And a lot of the (grocery) fruits and vegetables have harsh chemicals and are produced by harsh labor that’s been exploited. When I see a fruit here, I get really happy because it’s grown by the people and for the people.” CRECE is off Santiago Street tucked behind the First Congregational Church of Santa Ana, which owns the land; it has been a community garden for many years, most recently known as the Santa Ana People’s Garden, when it was divided into small plots, each tended by a different family. Its wall-size mural proclaiming that name is still there. div id="attachment_1385009" class="wp-caption mo...

Sally Cunningham: The first best flowers - Buffalo News

Chris Lavocat, of Lavocat’s Greenhouse & Nursery, East Amherst, showed me some of his discoveries and told me how he went about choosing: “People want what’s new and exotic, but you have to choose what will really grow here ... I look for something unique, like this ‘Storm Cloud’ Amsonia. Just look at the black stems,” he said. Each garden center has different choices, and I’m betting you and the pollinators will love them all. Here is a sampling to see now, take home, harden off, and plant in May. • Amsonia tabernaemontana (Bluestar) ‘Storm Cloud’: This cultivar of a native plant has dark stems and masses of star-shaped periwinkle blue flowers in spring. Another Amsonia (A. hubrechtii) turns bright gold in fall. Average size: 20 by 24 inches. Amsonia tabernaemontana (Bluestar) ‘Storm Cloud’ (Photo courtesy Proven Winners, provenwinners.com) • Phlox subulata (Creeping Phlox, Moss Phlox) ‘Emerald Blue’ (plus many cultivars in many colors): Typically people ask for this in garden centers after spotting it in a front yard, but they are disappointed to find that it has finished flowering. Get it as soon as you see it, so you will have a lovely spread next year. In the yard, on the edge of a wall or border, it makes a sea of color very early, and a pleasant green groundcover all summer; about 4 inches tall, mats spreading to 2 feet. • Lysimachia atropurpurea (Burgundy Gooseneck Loosestrife) ‘Beaujolais’: I first spotted this one at Lavocat’s Garden Center and stopped in my tracks. It is stunning, with silvery-green wavy edged leaves and burgundy flowers. I must have it. Its size: 20 by 18 inches. It is the same genus as old-fashioned Gooseneck Loosestrife, but all reports say it will not spread like the relative, and the common name “loosestrife” should not confuse people. It’s no relation to the invasive loosestrife correctly called Lythrum. • Baptisia (False Indigo): This valuable genus is a legume, with flowers that please many pollinators, presented in a compact, upright perennial with season-long pretty foliage. Older Baptisias offered lovely blue/indigo blossoms. New cultivars have emerged in recent years leading to the Decadence® Deluxe series (Proven Winners) that includes ‘Pink Truffles, ‘Pink Lemonade’, ‘Blueberry Sundae’, ‘Vanilla Cream’, ‘Dutch Chocolate’ and ‘Cherries Jubilee.’ (Does anyone feel hungry?) Baptisia (False Indigo) 'Cherries Jubilee'. (Courtesy Proven Winners, provenwinners.com) • Pansies: These are technically perennials, and efforts in the last decades pursued their winter hardiness, producing cold and snow-tolerant ones such as ‘Icicle’ and ‘Snow Angel’ among others. Whether or not they perennialize, they like the cool weather of spring and fall, so get them going now. Pansies. (Robert Kirkham /News file photo) Garden centers don’t all have the plant departments filled out yet. They have to be careful, as do we, about putting plants outside too soon. April weather...
