Breaking ground: Warm winter has landscape plants confused - NWAOnline
• Male cultivars are 'Jim Dandy,' 'Apollo' and 'Southern Gentleman.'
For the Ilex decidua plants, the most commonly sold variety is 'Warren's Red' for the female and 'Red Escort' for the male plant.
Usually one male plant is all that is needed to pollinate four or five female plants.
Deciduous hollies make excellent large bushes or small trees in the sunny landscape. They have nice green foliage during the growing season, but the females shine in the winter landscape when the leaves drop to allow the fruits to show their full glory.
The berries are an important food source for many birds. Full sun is best, but with at least six hours of sun they can set fruit. They appreciate some added water during extended dry periods.
Deciduous hollies are native to Arkansas. (Special to the Democrat-Gazette/Janet B. Carson)

These Flowers Have Been Growing for 103 Years - The New York Times
Belma Fashions. On a recent morning, the firm’s 61-year-old president, Warren Brand, was leading a tour there for a group of fashion students from Mississippi State University. They had come to see a unicorn, a scrappy holdout, a working museum of old-fashioned artisanship that somehow had to turn a modern-day profit.Schmalberg, a fourth-generation family business founded in 1916, makes artificial flowers from silk and other fabrics for clients including milliners, theatrical costume designers, fashion stylists, bridal houses and designer labels like Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs. The flowers adorned the Thom Browne hybrid suit-dress that Zazie Beetz wore to the Met Gala, and they have decorated the angel wings of a Victoria’s Secret runway model and the uniforms of Marriott employees, who wear leather camellias pinned to their suits. One year, Schmalberg made 200,000 tiny silk petals for Vera Wang to stitch into its dresses. More recently, the firm created leather leaves for the display windows of the jeweler Harry Winston’s Paris boutique.ImageWarren Brand, left, and his son Adam, who run M & S Schmalberg.CreditVincent Tullo for The New York TimesBut in the age of fast fashion and offshoring, the business of Manhattan fabric flora is not...
