Australia and has the common name strawflower, though it does not resemble the large selections we call Bracteantha. It was selected as a Mississippi Medallion Award Winner while I was a Horticulture Specialist with Mississippi State University.NONSTOP BLOOMSYou might wonder what’s so special about a plant with a name that is difficult to pronounce. The answer is nonstop blooms on a plant that is drought tolerant, heat tolerant and frost tolerant to around 30 degrees.In our Mississippi State University Trials, it bloomed with its small button-like flowers of orange or yellow from May right up until hard freezes in November or December. Gardeners is zones 9 and 10 may find it returns in the spring as a perennial with explicit drainage, but the rest of us will enjoy it as an annual, and one that is of exceptional value.GREAT IN CONTAINERSThe Flambé chrysocepalum is available in orange and yellow. The Flambé Yellow has silver-gray leaves while the Flambé Orange has olive-green foliage. The plants are trailing, reaching about 8 to 15 inches tall. This trailing habit means they are wonderful in mixed containers.Combine the hot-colored yellow Flambé yellow with cool colors like Whirlwind Blue scaevola, and this years new Whirlwind Starlight scaevola which just also happen to be from Australia. The Artist Blue ageratum creates a dazzling complementary partnership with its deep blue violet flowers.For a taller, blue-flowered companions, combine it with salvias like Rockin Blue Suede Shoes, Rockin Playin the Blues, and the trendy Unplugged So Blue.Another stunning partnership would be to partner Flambé with Truffula Pink gomphrena, the hottest pollinator plant in the country. It produces iridescent hot pink balls that look like small exploding fireworks. Its toughness and longevity will match perfectly with Flambe Yellow.DROUGHT TOLERANTWith its drought-tolerant nature, do pay attention and avoid ov... Aug 3, 2020

Flowers delivered for hands-on instruction in MSU's floral design course - Mississippi State Newsroom
One Mississippi State instructor has found a way to reach students all over the world and create immediate social and emotional connections through virtual floral design.
Floral management teacher Lynette McDougald designed and introduced the first basic floral design course offered virtually during MSU’s Summer Advantage Online.
“It’s been proven in a number of studies that the presence of flowers increases emotional wellbeing at home, at work and as a gift,” said McDougald, whose class is offered through the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences. “I don’t think the average floral consumer looks at buying flowers as the purchase of a highly perishable commodity, but as an emotion. Flowers convey our emotions when we don’t necessarily have the words.”
Especially in the midst of social distancing, she hopes floral design helps students understand the benefits of living with flowers while, at the same time, instilling in them the principles and elements of the craft. While the class is a basic building block of the floral management curriculum, it also is approved as a fine arts course and attracts students from all majors as a popular elective.
McDougald knew that for students to ingest the fundamentals of the traditional course, she needed to find a way to incorporate experie... Nov 9, 2019
'Place between heaven and earth:' Hospice Ministries in Ridgeland delivers flower ministry - Clarion Ledger
Dan H. Broughton, a local home health business owner, combined their medical and business knowledge and established Hospice of Central Mississippi, the first not-for-profit home hospice in central Mississippi, in 1989.
In 1992, with the help of the Willing Hearts Circle of the Kings Daughter Medical Center, Hospice of Central Mississippi opened another center in Brookhaven.
In 1997, Hospice of Central Mississippi and Whispering Pines Hospice of South Jackson merged and Hospice Ministries resulted.
The Rev. Don Fortenberry recalled that Whispering Pines Hospice initially served patients with HIV/AIDS but, as medical treatment improved for HIV/AIDS patients, it enlarged its focus to include patients facing the end of life. The Catholic Diocese of Mississippi, the Episcopal Diocese of Mississippi and the Methodist Conference of Mississippi established Whispering Pines.
A June 14, 1999 photo Clarion Ledger photo shows Bishop William Houck of the Catholic Diocese of Jackson, with the Rev. Jerry McBride of St. James Episcopal Church and the Fortenberry of the Mississippi Area of the United Methodist Conference by his side, sprinkling blessed water during the dedication of the Ridgeland facility.
“Hospice Ministries has developed a reputation for quality, compassionate care of people at the end of life,” said Fortenberry, who served on the board at Whispering Pines Hospice and chaired the Hospice Ministries Board for several years. “People who go to work there and stay for many years see it as a ministry. That makes all the difference in how they help people deal with impending death.”
In addition to care at its facility in Ridgeland, Hospice Ministries also offers in-home hospice care as well as hospice care for patients in nursing homes, assisted living homes and other residential care settings. The McLean Fletcher Center at 12 Northtown Drive in Jackson provides programs for grieving children and teens and also falls under the umbrella of Hospice Ministries.
The in-patient facility of Hospice Ministries in Ridgeland has room to care for 40 patients and that care extends to emotional support for their families. Care is focused on the patient’s priorities, needs and values, and services are designed to ease pain and alleviate symptoms.
“Thirty years ago, hospice was something new,” said Houston. “More people understand it but it’s still new to some people.”
Hospice Ministries accepts private insurance and Medicare and uses Medicare guidelines for admitting patients. “A patient has to have a life-limiting illness with a life expectancy of six months or less,” Britt said.
The in-patient facility in Ridgeland includes a chapel with windows designed by Andy Young of Pearl River Glass Studio in Jackson. The chapel was named in honor of Fortenberry after he completed his service on the board.
“The chapel represents the religious base of the facility as does the name,” Fortenberry said. “It’s a very pretty setting that can be used for memorial services.”
Community organizations have assisted with updates to the facility, Britt said.

In The Garden | Tiger swallowtail butterflies abundant this summer - Mansfield News Journal
Other states prevented from planting due to weather include Arkansas, Michigan and Mississippi.
• Northwest Ohio was hit hardest for wet fields, namely Fulton and Williams counties.
• In Ohio, a total of more than 1.5 million acres that normally would be planted were unplanted this year — a total of 881,000 acres of corn and 599,000 of soybeans.
Our hope is we don't get a couple more back-to-back seasons like 2019
We realize there could be more wet seasons ahead, but hope that doesn't happen. Farmers nationwide appreciate all of the support during this tough year.
• The most beautiful flowers grow in rocky soils and crevices.
• Humans have one mouth and two ears; there is a message there.
