Here Are The Best Native Plants For Lake Norman Gardens -

Regional Audubon experts hand-select the "best results" for each. In Davidson, Cornelius and Huntersville, some of the best flowers to grow this season include Green-Head Coneflower, Jack-in-the-Pulpit and pink azalea. Here's a roundup of some other great local options: Purple Passion Flower Also going by the names Maypop and Apricot Vine, this is a fast-growing, herbaceous climbing vine that features dark green leaves and fragrant, fringed flowers with white petals and a central crown of wavy, pinkish-purple filaments. The flowers bloom in the summer and are followed by fleshy, edible fruits that appear in July and mature to yellow in the fall. Purple Passion-Flower grows up to 25 feet long in full sun to partial shade and dry to moist soils; its roots can spread aggressively so it is best for informal settings. Birds they attract: Chickadees, Titmice, Waxwings, Cardinals, Finches, Sparrows Redbud Redbud, or Eastern Redbud, is an understory shrub or small tree that grows up to 30 feet tall. It often has a short, crooked gray-barked trunk and a wide-spreading, irregular crown of heart-shaped and smooth leaves. The flowers are bright pink while buds become light pink as they bloom in their clusters, transforming during the summer into flattened, brown seedpods. The seedpods can stay on the tree through fall and sometimes into winter. This tree does best in partial shade, and in moist, well-drained, fertile soils. Birds they attract: Hummingbirds, Finches, Wood Warblers, Waxwings, Chickadees, Titmice, Wrens, Crows and Jays, Thrushes, Woodpeckers Swamp Sunflower Also called Narrowleaf Sunflower, this perennial grows 3 to 6 feet tall with a many-branched stem and rough, sandpapery leaves 3 to 6 inches long. The yellow flowers, 2 to 3 inches across, bloom profusely in late summer and autumn. It grows best in full sun t...

Rare Lincoln funeral flower discovered at Will County Historical Museum, officials say

I imagine there are ghosts here saying, 'well, she finally found it,'" she said.Vasko took photos of her find and sent them to her friend, James Cornelius, the Lincoln curator at Abraham Lincoln Museum in Springfield.He confirmed that it was "a great find" and definitely the "real deal," she said.According to Cornelius, while there is no "chemical proof" of its authenticity, the condition of the item, its display and accompanying note "resemble" other items he has in the Springfield museum.It is "unusual" to have a note that referred to three prominent people who were not well known to the average citizen."It would be difficult to make that up. That is a strong historical point in its favor," he said, adding that the paper, ink and handwriting "all look authentic."Todd was related to the first lady, was in Lincoln's presence and at his funeral, and "he would have taken a flower and given it to Haynie," according to Cornelius.Todd also sent a lock of the late president's hair to a friend, with a handwritten letter that is now in the Springfield museum."This is the sort of thing he would have done. People did that regularly in the 19th Century," the Lincoln curator said.Few know of Haynie, yet he would have been in Washington D.C. then, and he was in charge of Lincoln's funeral procession in Springfield, Cornelius said.Evergreens also were common — and symbolic — for funerals at that time, he said. And even today, people save flowers from a funeral, he said.If these souvenirs stay within one family, they do survive, and they tend to stay near their home town, Cornelius said."People kept it because it was the most tragic event in American history, and it was meaningful to those who knew Lincoln," he said.What Vasko discovered "has all the marks of historical plausibility," he said.It's "rare and fascinating" to have this keepsake that references two important people, who were "known figures around the Lincoln family," and have it turn up again "through the great diligence of Sandy Vasko," Cornelius said."This was my Christmas present. I can die happy now," said Vasko, calling this the "pinnacle" of her many years of volunteering and digging through documents at the historical museum."Never in my life did I think I would handle this kind of artifact," she said.She always hoped to find a Lincoln signature among the many documents here, but this funeral flower is way beyond that, she said."It just wows you to think of what it is and where it's been. It gives you goosebumps," Vasko said.Eager to share and shout out the news of her find, Vasko said the first person she told was the bartender at Public Landings Restaurant, across the street from the historical museum, where she ordered a celebratory Cosmopolitan.When she told the members of the historical society's board of directors, "they stared at me and said, 'Are you sure?'" Vasko recalled."I still wake up in the middle of the night, just smiling," she said."This is a virgin exhibit. No one has ever seen this before. No one even knew it existed," she said.People have found lots of "weird Lincoln memorabilia" but there is no other dried flower from the funeral that she or Cornelius are aware of, she said."Shame on us for not knowing it was there," she said.Vasko, who has been director of the museum for nine years, said she doesn't even kno...

Ceramic Flowers to benefit Arts Center Young Artist program

Jen Cornelius, arts education coordinator at The Arts Center, said the program helps provide stability to children living in unstable situations.“When you have youths who are experiencing instability, or even youths who just need different ways to learn, art is often the only thing they can turn to and be able to express themselves,” Cornelius said. “I know a lot of kids who see themselves as artists and nothing else. It’s the last thing they have to hang onto.”Cornelius said the program costs roughly $60,000 a year and that The Arts Center has been looking to expand to additional area schools and additional art projects. Thus far, anonymous donors have provided more than $10,000 to support the program, and the Ceramics Guild project is likely to provide a much-needed boost, Cornelius said.

"The time and energy they cost, that needs to be matched with monetary stability to be able to fund this." Cornelius also noted that The Arts Center has not considered looking for volunteer artists to fill the gap.“I think it’s important to be able to pay these artists for their work,” Cornelius said. “Part of this is trying to re-educate the community on the value of art. And I don’t want to create competition for artists who want to do this but also need this for their livelihood.”... (Corvallis Gazette Times)
