A Glossary of Wedding Flowers by Season - Brides.com
Light Brown Lisianthus
Lisianthus is a popular spring wedding flower for a number of reasons, one of which is its hardiness. These flowers have serious staying power and that’s why florists love to use them as linchpins for perfecting all of their arrangements and bouquets. Oh has a favorite—the beigy brown lisianthus—for “neutralizing bright color palettes or softening an all-white monochromatic moment.” She wagers that with their multiple small stems, they’re easy to tuck in, fill gaps, and hide mechanics—while simultaneously creating depth and movement.
Just as lustily as the word slips off your tongue, these plush purple and white pretties are loose, drapey, romantic, and luscious. “My love for lilac is so real,” says Roden. “I like lilacs because they’re bouncy, they smell delicious, and they’re perfect for a lot of things and you don’t have to use a ton of them, either—the foliage is a delicate green and the blooms provide a lot of texture.”

Old Roses bring breathtaking beauty, scent, history - Bonner County Daily Bee
Generally, however, as the forerunners of today’s multitude of choices, their hardiness is ensured by virtue of their original growing regions in the mountains of Turkey, Persia and the Far East. They are comprised of the following historical nomenclature: Alba, Bourbon, Centifolia (Cabbage), China, Damask, Gallica, Moss and Noisette.
For those who treasure that old lushness – and fragrance – today’s column offers a brief history/background and description of each, gleaned from the excellent little Random House booklet “Old Roses (and how to grow them).”
Alba Roses are thought to have been grown by the ancient Romans and in medieval times were associated with the Virgin Mary. Very hardy (to -30F), they form large bluish-grey leaved shrubs with generally white or pale pink multi-petaled flowers of wonderful fragrance. Blooming in midsummer, they have a long season and are blackspot free, though can get rust. They thrive in poor soil but do best when well fed (fish emulsion is good) especially when first planted. Watering – as with all roses – should be at the root base and never by overhead sprinkling.
Bourbon Roses are noted climbers but can be allowed to ramble at will or planted as a hedge. Generally an autumn-flowerer, they boast large multi-petaled flowers, heavenly scent and take well to pruning. They are named for the Isle of Bourbon (now Reunion) in the Indian Ocean. It was a port of call for French ships returning from the Far East, and the lavish rose gardens inspired a gathering of seeds by plantsmen to add to ... Apr 4, 2021

- Gardening: Painful memories of a rose garden - Chestnut Hill Local
They are gorgeous and come in every color except
blue. A subset of hybrid teas is called grandiflora, with tea-like flowers and
the hardiness (supposedly) of floribundas. We live in a climate that is
challenging for roses, especially the teas. Hot, humid summers encourage a
fungus called “black spot” that eats the leaves, turning them yellow, speckling
them, slowly killing the plant. During the 20 years we lived in Germantown, the
disease killed many.
The other great threat was
Japanese Beetles. Do not try to grow yellow roses because the little devils are
strongly attracted to the petals. From the yellows, they will spread to the
others, albeit less voraciously. They burrow into dirt and lay their eggs,
creating new generations. They are damned hard to get rid of once they find
I was traveling a lot
during the years we lived in Germantown and wasn’t inclined to undertake the
recommended anti-fungal spraying regimen. It was a chore I was too lazy
to undertake – thirty rose bushes and their hundreds of leafy canes. Spraying
just the ones with an obvious infection will not do – you have to spray them
all. After all, I had magazines and books to read.
We’ve lived in Chestnut
Hill for 20 years. Until a few years ago, memories of my Germantown failures
were too painful. But, finally, the memories faded and I was willing to try
again. I work from home now, so I might just find the time. We ordered
four hybrid teas from the Fred Edmunds rose farm in Oregon, put one out front
in the patch of dirt between the sidewalk and the house, and the other three in
different locations in the back, hoping to inhibit the spread of disease by
Only one of them thrived.
I’m uncertain why the other three sent out only a few blooms. Perhaps because
they were crowded by other plants, perhaps it was because the soil was too
alkaline, perhaps it was because I didn’t feed them. I don’t know.
There is a 10-by-10 sunny
patch at the back of the yard, overgrown by daylilies, where the one rose bush
that thrived was located. Valerie was eager to find a better use for the patch
and encouraged me to clear out the daylilies and try replanting the three
pathetic survivors. And, since I was going to all of that trouble of clearing
the patch, why not order a few more?
By tradition, the roses
are mine – everything else is Valerie’s. (She can’t look at a plant without
wanting to care for it, so I knew that she would be willing to “help”.)
Selection from the catalogs has always been a shared pleasure. So we now have a
rose garden – again. I’ve moved the three survivors to the cleared patch and
planted four new ones.

Gardening: Perennials — Bleeding heart and coral bells - Saskatoon StarPhoenix
Most were developed elsewhere and few were tested for hardiness in northern zones prior to their release. Almost none of these has proved enduring, most lasting only two or three years. A new series, Northern Exposure, with genes from our native Heuchera richardsonii, hopefully will combine beautiful foliage with a tougher constitution. Place them in a protected location.For now, our best bet are the Morden hybrids, bred by Henry Marshall who crossed H. sanguinea with H. richardsionii beginning in the late 1950s.— ‘Brandon Pink’ (1957) has bright, coral-pink flowers in July. It is about 60 cm (2 ft) in height, with dense, almost evergreen, faintly mottled foliage. It flowers freely, is vigorous, and drought and wind tolerant.— ‘Brandon Glow’ (1967) has darker pink flowers in a more open panicle and is slightly shorter at 45 cm (20 in.) with distinctly mottled green and white foliage.— ‘Northern Fire’ (1979), a seedling of ‘Brandon Pink’, has dark red flowers and is about 60 cm (2 ft) in height. It blooms for six weeks in early summer.— ‘Ruby Mist’ has dark green, evergreen foliage and ruby red flowers on 45 cm (18 in.) stems. It has an even longer bloom period than ‘Northern Fire’.Sara Williams is the author of numerous books dealing with gardening in cold climate. Look for Perennials for Northern Gardens in fall, 2020.

Sunflowers in October? Breeders are racing to develop plants that flower again and again. - The Washington Post
North Carolina State University breeder Thomas Ranney and named Perfecto Mundo. It was selected for its compact size, hardiness and resistance to lacebug, said Stacey Hirvela, horticulture marketing specialist at Spring Meadow. A second will be available to consumers in 2021, she said.Monrovia has five varieties under its Double Shot series. The energy the plant puts into the flowers helps to keep it compact, Pedersen said.
We speak here of the eternally popular hortensia hydrangea that blooms in June (in the Mid-Atlantic) known botanically as Hydrangea macrophylla. Its flowering on the previous year’s wood led to three basic problems: In northern states, it could be counted on to survive but not bloom after a harsh winter, especially without a protective snow cover. In the South, it was prone to sprout in early spring and then get damaged by a late frost. The third calamity came at the hands of the neatnik gardener, who cut it back in March and removed most of its flowering wood.The first re-bloomer, Endless Summer, was launched 15 years ago. The range extends to five varieties, including a lacecap named Twist-n-Shout. The latest was introduced this year as a compact red-purple mophead variety named Summer Crush. Endless Summer Hydrangeas
Summer Crush is the latest in the series of Endless Summer hydrangeas. It was bred to speed up the flowering cycle — an issue in northern gardens.
Endless Summer Hydrangeas
BloomStruck is one of five varieties in Endless Summer’s collection of re-blooming hydrangeas.
Hydrangea breeders have been focusing on such smaller varieties, which cycle into repeat bloom faster than larger ones. One criticism of re-bloomers in northern states has been the endless wait for Endless Summer. In addition, breeders are seeking to reduce the wilting that besets hydrangeas in hot climates, Roberts said.Spring Meadow and Proven Winners have released their own line, under the a data-xslt="_http"...
