Ask an expert: Brown tips on this healthy cypress tree are male pollen-bearing flowers - OregonLive

There does not appear to be anything wrong with the tree. Hinoki cypress is in the genus Chamaecyparis and the appearance of these male flowers are characteristic of the genus. For example, see the photos for Chamaecyparis lawsoniana. – Glenn Ahrens, OSU Extension forestry specialistQ: I’m looking for resources to support me in nurturing my 5-year-old ‘Negronne’ fig tree. My questions: How to prune, fertilize and mulch. Also, should I remove leaves in late summer and early autumn to encourage fruit maturing, fruit harvest and reduce waste? – Clackamas CountyA: Easy-to-grow, figs are among the oldest fruits known to humankind. Native to western Asia and the eastern Mediterranean region, figs (Ficus carica) are members of the Moraceae family and are grown for their delicious edible fruit. The tree was brought to North America by Spanish missionaries in the early 16th century. Of the four main types of figs, three — Caprifigs, Smyrna, and San Pedro – are not usually grown by home gardeners, because they have complex pollination requirements.The fourth type, the common fig, is parthenocarpic, meaning the fruit forms without fertilization. Let’s look at a few varieties of this type. These three figs are recommended for our area: ‘White Kadota,’ ‘Desert King’ and ‘Lattarula’. All have yellowish-green skin and amber flesh. They are sufficiently cold hardy, ripen nicely and may produce two harvests.When it comes time to plant – fall is optimal – choose a south-facing site where the sun shines all or most of the day. Planting is no different than other trees. Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and the same depth or no more than 2 inches deeper as it is in the pot. The soil should be loose enough to drain well. Adding organic material will help with that. Make sure the pH is neutral; shoot for 6.

12 Native Flowers Are Easy from Seed -

My top three plants for direct seeding would be black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta), spotted bee balm (Monarda punctata), and partridge pea (Chamaecrista fasciculata),” Jaffe Wilder says. “There are several goldenrods that could make the list as well. Two of my favorites are wreath goldenrod (Solidago caesia) and downy goldenrod (Solidago puberula).”All those plants do well in average sunny to partly sunny settings. Once past the seedling establishment stage, furthermore, they are remarkably drought tolerant. (Note: Goldenrod is not the source of fall allergies. Ragweed takes that honor!)Jaffe Wilder continues, “If you need some shade species, I’d add white wood aster (Eurybia divaricata) and white snakeroot (Ageratina altissima). For wetter sites in part shade, I suggest cardinal flower (Lobelia cardinalis) or orange forget-me-not (Impatiens capensis).” Aside from the bees and butterflies they attract, both plants are nectar sources for hummingbirds. Also, some people use orange forget-me-not (often called jewelweed) as a mosquito repellent as well as a salve for poison ivy.Don’t Pull These PlantsSome high-value natives seed themselves. All we need do is avoid pulling them.Consider the virtues of the violet (Viola soraria) in and around neighborhood lawns, for instance. They’re so common that some consider them weeds. These natives form dense mats, persist through the growing season, are very deer- and rabbit-resistant, and grow in various site conditions. They provide critical early forage for queen bumblebees. What is more, standard lawn violets are larval hosts for great spangled fritillary butterflies. For more information about the ecological value of native violets, see Penn State Extension’s fact sheet at There are other native violets worth considering, including American dogtooth violet (Viola labradorica).White yarrow (Achillea millefolium) pops up everywhere along the shoreline. It’s a high-value plant for multiple native bees, according to pollinator ecologists at the Xerces Society ( It is also a nectar source for numerous butterflies and moths.Anise hyssop (Agastache foeniculum) is another frequent roadside and garden volunteer. Its long-lived flowers provide nectar for hummingbirds, bees, moths, and butterflies, and, when the flowers die, seeds for birds.Seed Source...

Nine tonnes of flowers used in Pushpa Yagam

In addition to the traditional flowers such as rose, sampangi, ganneri, mollalu, lillies and chamanti, conventional leaves like Tulasi, Bilwam, Maruvam and davanam were also used.In all, about nine tonnes of aromatic flowers of varied hues is estimated to have gone into the conduct of the yagam. The priests offered floral ‘Ahuitis' to the deities as a battery of Vedic scholars recited the extracts from sacred texts.Each time the floral mound that was formed in course of offering of flowers touched the divine chin of the deities, they were ceremoniously cleared by the temple priests and the spiritual exercise was repeated until the festival reached its crescendo. Earlier in the morning ‘Snapana Thirumanjanam' was conducted to the deities. The flowers were procured from various parts of the country under the Pushpa Kainkaryam scheme.The festival which also finds a reference in the famous keerthanas of the saint poet Tallapaka Annamacharya is believed to have been in vogue in the fifteenth century and was revived in the year 1980 after a brief disruption.Over 28 varieties of flowers mostly bright and aromatic in nature were ceremoniously offered to the deity and his two divine consorts inside the temple. According to mythology, the ritual was conducted periodically appeasing the Lord to protect earth from natural calamities.

MYSTERY PLANT: Mystery Plant's flowers resemble a glowing candle

Caesalpinioideae, and is thus related to honey-locusts (Gleditsia), the various partridge-peas (Chamaecrista) and even the common redbud (Cercis canadensis). Our Mystery Plant belongs to a big genus, with probably over 500 related species.It has attractive and remarkable foliage, each leaf with 10-15 pairs of rounded leaflets. Interestingly, there's always an even number of leaflets, the leaf apex terminated by a pair. Even more interestingly, these leaflets basically fold up, like praying hands, along the leaf midrib at night. (Botanists like to use the term "nyctinasty" to refer to such night movements by plants.)Flowering stalks are loaded with brilliant gold flowers forming thick spikes, standing straight up, giving the effect of a brightly glowing candle. Pods (legumes, actually) follow the flowers, and are somewhat angled. They start out green, but become brown as they dry. When I've seen large plants of this species on a calm, warm autumn day, there are invariably lots of insects visiting.Bees and butterflies are attracted to the flowers, and wasps, flies and ants seem to like investigating the fruits and leaves which tend to give off a sticky, somewhat shiny resin. This plant has been used medicinally, but its seeds and foliage are probably somewhat toxic if ingested in large amounts.This is a tropical species, native to portions of South America, but commonly grown now as an ornamental. In warm places, it behaves like a perennial and may actually form a small tree. Otherwise, in colder areas, it dies down to the ground, and presumably won't survive unless mulched heavily. Not being mulch of a gardener myself, I can't help you there too much.[Answer:"Candlestick plant," Senna alata] .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;} d...

2018 Wildflower Season Expected To Be Typical, But Still Terrific

Indigofera miniata), southern blanketflower (Gaillardia pulchella var. australis), beach evening primrose (Oenothera drummondii), partridge pea (Chamaecrista fasciculata) and beach ground cherry (Physalis cinerascens var. spathulifolia). At the Katy Prairie Conservancy west of Houston, experts predict a good wildflower season based on the past year’s weather patterns. The rainfall paired with a couple of hard freezes probably helped to break down seed coats and allow for good germination, though extreme weather events have definitely shaken things up and make the spring season less predictable. Experts at Mercer Botanical Gardens just north of Houston in Humble report that they are still recovering from Hurricane Harvey and that plants have also sustained freeze damage.With recent rains, experts near Dallas and Fort Worth say that a good wildflower show is right around the bend, so long as no late freezes challenge existing buds. Anemone (Anemone spp.), redbud trees (Cercis spp.) and Mexican plum (Prunus mexicana) are in full bloom. Elbow bush (Forestiera pubescens), a shrub with small but charismatic pom-pom blooms, has just about finished blooming near Austin but is going strong in the DFW area.In West Texas, experts say Big Bend bluebonnets (Lupinus havardii) were blooming as early as February. The blooms in the Texas Panhandle will arrive later than in the rest of the state as they usually do, with experts reporting few rosettes (small plants) showing after a long, cold winterAt the Wildflower Center and throughout Austin, Texas bluebonnets (Lupinus texensis) look healthy and plentiful, and though many have not yet bloomed, Wildflower Center experts note that they are primed and ready to go. Bluebonnet displays generally peak around the first week of April, and while it’s not an exact science, blooms have started showing around the Wildflower Center and the city, with waves of blue sure to follow. Iconic roadside and park-populating wildflowers such as Indian paintbrush (Castilleja indivisa), firewheel (Gaillardia pulchella), pink evening primrose (Oenothera speciosa), prairie verbena (Glandularia bipinnatifida) and more are all expected to color the landscape in short order. Center experts say to keep an eye out for large populations of pink evening primrose this year, as they tend to thrive in slightly drier conditions.Signs of spring are brightening the landscape at the Wildflower Center, home to hundreds of species of native wildflowers. The center’s arboretum and numerous trails are dotted with early bloomers such as goldeneye phlox (Phlox roemeriana), windflower (Anemone berlandieri) and golden groundsel (Packera obovata). People looking skyward will be greeted by showy redbud (Cercis canadensis), big white bouquets on Mexican plum trees, and the fanned “finger” flowers of climbing coral honeysuckle vines (Lonicera sempervirens). Throughout many neighborhoods, giant spiderwort (Tradescantiagigantea) in hues of violet and blue and notoriously fragrant mountain laurel (Sophora secundiflora) are already in action.For facts about Texas’ most iconic wildflowers, updates about what’s blooming, recommended dr...

Giving the garden a winter glow

One of my favorites is Golden Charm threadleaf cypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera filifera). This fine-textured evergreen spills like a fountain, building slowly to around 6 feet high and up to 8 feet wide. I like to partner it with prostrate Goldrush forsythia, which is bare-stemmed in winter but a flowing river of sunshine yellow in spring. For a contrast of form, consider upright spikes of Golden Sword yucca, which spreads like an open fan some 3-5 feet high and wide. The wide, evergreen leaves boast vivid yellow bands that shine in rain or mist or twilight. Bushy little Nandina Lemon Lime adds a grace note to any border and looks great in containers, where its feathery foliage also offers a pleasing counterpoint to broadleaved evergreens. In the ground, this compact shrub makes a tidy 4-by-4-foot mound that takes on delicate autumn tints without ever developing the deeper wine reds common to its cousins. Sweet scents are doubly precious in winter when Goldspire Azara produces tiny, fluffy yellow flowers amid rounded, creamy-edged leaves. In a sheltered corner, this slim shrub can build into a small tree (to 15 feet) if winter blasts don’t cut it down. Hardier and more compact, Choisya ternata Sundance is ch... (Kitsap Sun)
