Plants not seen in Ohio in decades found in Summit, Portage counties - Akron Beacon Journal
Division of Natural Areas and Preserves Chief Botanist Rick Gardner said the American cuckoo-flower typically only occurs in fens, a type of wetland often only visited by botanists, biologists and other scientists."You have to be out in the right time of the year," he said. "When it's not in bloom, it could be easily overlooked."Other "lost" plants found in Ohio in 2019 include the water marigold — an aquatic flowering plant last seen in Ohio in the 1930s — found in Portage County in September; the black-stemmed spleenwort — a type of fern last seen in Ohio in 1900 — found in Adams County in May; and Vasey’s pondweed — an aquatic plant last seen in Ohio in 1935 — found in Lorain County in June.Gardner said the water marigold was found at a natural lake in Portage County. He said he couldn’t provide additional information, as the landowner who found the species on their property wants to remain anonymous.The Vasey’s pondweed was found by Cleveland Metroparks and Lorain County Metro Parks employees working on aquatic invasive species, while the black-stemmed spleenwort was found by a group of college students studying biology.Garder said finding even one of these kinds of species in a year is impressive, but finding four is almost unheard of."It really tells you that there's still opportunity to find these species," Gardner said. "To find these species that have very specific habitats and very small, narrow niches in our ecosystems is really special."The focus will now be on protecting the habitats where these rare plants were found to ensure the populations there survive and thrive.In Long Lake Fen, Bissell said he’ll be working to remove invasive species — including phragmites, or reed grass; glossy buckthorn, a nonnative shrub that forms dense stands; and narrowleaf cattail — that threaten the rare plants and other native species at Long Lake."I know we're not done finding rare plants there," he said of the fen. "It seems like every couple years, we find something new."Contact reporter Emily Mills at 330-996-3334, firstname.lastname@example.org and @EmilyMills818.

Norwalk garden tour set for Saturday - Norwalk Reflector
Phillip is in the Navy. There are also anchors for the Navy and some whale accents for son Jonah. Wende is more an organizer, rather than a Gardner, so she has help with her paintings and choices. The backyard is a great party spot with lots of colorful seating, a pool, fireplace and mini bar for serving goodies.
Jan and Howard Smith, the gardeners at 123 Norwood, have a nice little garden with all our favorite flowers, iris, lilies, hydrangeas, daisies, hostas, spiderwort, Montana Bluets, Coral bells, clematis and others. Jan is the straw boss/designer and Howard is the help. Their dining room looks out on their new deck, built with the curves seen in the other area landscaping. The front beds are edged with nice curves that flow with rhythm around the colorful beds of perennials, varied annuals’ and shrubs.
A smoke treat trained too a small tree is a very nice touch. Another trained vine/tree is the small wisteria that has bloomed every year. In the back yard is an above ground pool, mostly for the grandkids, a water garden with falls, which is a favorite with the dog who keeps the frogs in line. Beside the water garden is an intriguing unknown evergreen with odd leaves and color. The area is shaded with a large magnolia tree which is a steady bloomer. Until Jan learned to use a fake heron to frighten away the real heron, the fish never lasted long.
Just inside the back gate is a stone fire pit surrounded by a stone patio. Flowers here are more perennial with bright annuals filling in the gaps. This garden is perfect for a small lot with all the work being done by the owners.
Two houses at one stop — that is the treat at 8 and 10 Mary Way. Here Eric and Cheryl Kirk and Woody and Johnna Rail, in side-by-side condos present a beautifully synchronized yard and landscape to the public.
Woody and Johnna, Woody the shovel man and Johnna the designer, have been gardening here for three years, enough to design a lovely range of shrubs, planted pots and hanging baskets that enhance clever areas of hard-scaping. The Dails have some beautiful black urns in front that add color and spark to the landscaping. Both giant blue hostas and bright smaller variegated hostas grace the yard. An area to the side is an additional lot that is devoted to a wild look with spring bulbs, wild flowers and lovely trees.
On the Kirk side, well-established old style coral bells weave their delicate pink flowers through blooming yellow coreopsis and big blue hostas, a result of more than 10 years of gardening on Mary Way. Here groundcovers, vinca and sedums add interest while many pots are overflowing with color in the back.The combined backyards are a haven for entertaining with lots of seating and colorful flowers. The Kirks also have beautiful urns brimming with color and both nom-owners have used clematis to entwine the mailboxes.
At nearby 14 Gerard Drive is the home of Del and Anna Bristol. It is she who tends the numerous gardens spots that have been developed over the years.
A recirculating stream burbles in the front yard where birds enjoy bathing. It is accented with Peach Melba heurchera and this year’s accent color of bright pink, seen in geraniums in a miniature garden bench planter and hanging baskets with a ring of variegated hostas underneath. The walk curves between the running stream and a s... Feb 28, 2019
Rare Ohio plant found near Vermilion - Norwalk Reflector
The find was announced a few weeks ago in an article in the Ohio State Nature Preserves 2018 annual newsletter. The piece by Rick Gardner, chief botanist for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, states that the rediscovery of Carey's smartweed is part of Bissell's "incredible long list of best finds over the 40 years of botanizing Ohio."
Gardner's article says that Carey's smartweed was last seen in Ohio in 1920. Asked about the differing accounts of how long the weed has been in hiding, Bissell says there may be another record for the plant he is unfamiliar with.
Bissell explains that Carey's smartweed is part of the smartweed group of plants. Smartweeds have flowers on top and like to grow in wetlands.
Birds like to munch on smartweed fruits.
"They are important to waterfowl and other birds," Bissell said.
The term "smartweed" is apparently a bit of a misnomer, as weeds do not differ in academic ability.
"There's no such thing as a dumb weed that I know of," Bissell said.
Carey's smartweed is found in other states, but is considered rare. In Michigan, for example, it is a threatened and legally protected species that has only been spotted in six counties and was last seen in 1999, according to Michigan State University's Michigan Natural Features Inventory.
Bissell said he likes to go to Lake Erie wetlands. He said he found half a dozen rare or threatened plants at Putnam Marsh, an Erie County wetlands that is part of Erie MetroParks.
And he suspects that Carey's smartweed is... Jul 26, 2018
