On Gardening: Hydrangea varieties add long-lasting color to the garden - Sarasota Herald-Tribune
Let's Dance Rave will thrive in part sun, morning sun and afternoon shade, or high filtered light.My last shout-out goes to Chantilly Lace. This is a selection of hydrangea paniculata that differs from a lot of other varieties of this species in that it has the large sterile flowers and small fertile flowers. In Savannah it was a pollinator magnet, but it would it work in West Georgia as well. The answer is yes, swallowtails, hairstreaks and bees.If you want glorious white hydrangea blooms in mid-to late-summer with the accompaniment of pollinators, then this is the one for you. It is recommended for zones 3-8, and based on our plants in Savannah zone 9 should work too. It is large, reaching 5 feet tall and wide. It blooms on current seasons growth, so cutting back will be part of your regimen. This hydrangea can go in full sun to part shade.The Garden Guy hopes you'll take advantage of this time of the year to stroll the landscape and see where the addition of a few hydrangeas might dazzle with color and butterflies. You may very well find yourself shouting "Let's dance!" and "Who's your daddy?"___Norman Winter, horticulturist, garden speaker and author of "Tough-as-Nails Flowers for the South" and "Captivating Combinations: Color and Style in the Garden."

Chantilly Lace and Pinky Winky dazzling in blooms, bees, and butterflies
The Hydrangea paniculatas have to be the showiest plant in the summer garden, and I have an-affection for them all. Chantilly Lace and Pinky Winky, however, has captured my heart not only for their beauty but their proclivity to attract pollinators.Here at the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens, we have several of the leading varieties of what we call the panicle hydrangeas. With 51 acres and the hydrangeas spread out, I have not paid much attention to any visiting pollinators.Everyone loves them against a backdrop of deep green garden foliage or combined with cottage garden plants like rudbeckias. Bees, butterflies, wasps, and, giant flies, however, will make you want to add a little dazzle like Chantilly Lace or Pinky Winky to the backyard wildlife habitat.Panicle hydrangea is cold hardy and recommended from zones 3-8 (9). This means just about the whole country can grow them.The Hydrangea paniculata or panicle varieties are different than the mophead or French hydrangea, the leaves are smaller, and the number of flowers is incredible. The flowers may be 6- to 15-inches long and most held upright o... (Fredericksburg.com)Feb 9, 2017

Freeze Warning Overnight: How to Protect Your Plants
Ellicott City, and Aberdeen.
In Virginia, communities in the warning area include: Prince Frederick, Reston, Herndon, Annandale, Centreville, Chantilly, Mclean, Franconia, Arlington and Alexandria.
The Weather Service warns: “A freeze watch means sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or highly likely. These conditions will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.”
If you're a gardener, then you've harvested most of your bounty by now, but there are several frost hardy plants that can survive even if the overnight temperatures drop to 28 degrees. So, leeks, scallions, chives, brussels sprouts, broccoli, kale, parsley, beets, carrots, winter squash, pumpkins and sage should be OK, according to the Vegetable Gardener website.
Here are some steps you can take when a frost or freeze threatens, according to TodaysHomeowner.com.
Bring Indoors: Frost-tender plants in containers should be brought inside during cold weather. Dig up tender bulbs and store them in a cool dry place.Water Plants: Water plants thoroughly before a freeze to prevent desiccation and to add insulating water to the soil and plant cells.Protect Tender Sprouts: Cover tender plants overnight with an inverted bucket or flower pot, or with a layer of mulch. Be sure to uncover them in the morning when the temperature rises above freezing.Cover Shrubs and Trees: Larger plants can be covered with fabric, old bed sheets, burlap, or commercial frost cloths (avoid using plastic). For best results, drape the cover over a frame to keep it from touching the foliage. Fabric covers help to trap heat from the soil, so make sure your cover drapes to the ground. Uncover them in the morning when the temperature rises above freezing.Here's a look at the coming week's weather forecast, from the National Weather Service:
Saturday night: Mostly clear. Lows in the mid 30s. West winds around 5 mph.Sunday: Sunny. Highs in the upper 50s. West winds around 5 mph.Sunday night: Mostly clear. Lows around 40.Monday: A slight chance of showers after 8am. Mostly sunny, with a high near 60. Chance of precipitation is 20%.Monday night: A chance of showers after 8pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low a... (Patch.com)Sep 14, 2016
Start and end the day on a sweet note at The Dessertery in Shawnee
Fruit parfaits come dressed for breakfast layered with seasonal Chantilly crema ($5.99) and luscious chocolate waffles topped with berries and drizzled with chocolate sauce round out five reasons to get out of bed any day of the week (except Monday, when The Dessertery is closed). Affogato coffee and affogato gourmet hot chocolate, both made with house-churned ice cream, wash down breakfast quite nicely ($5.49).
On the flip side of the breakfast menu, which includes espresso drinks and French press made with Kansas City’s Broadway Café and Roasting Company ($1.99 - 4.29), is a treasure trove of sugary desserts. Three of Kelly’s bestsellers have great family backstories, which she’ll gladly share while you’re finishing every last morsel: Chocolate Euphoria ($7.99), Blackberry Wine Cake and Chess Cake ($6.99).
Creampuffs are a specialty at The Dessertery, too—choose from several fillings, including seasonal flavors such as key lime, chocolate strawberry, German chocolate and more ($6.99). Seasonal flavors also rotate, and right now pumpkin cheesecake and apple-pear spice creampuffs are available through Dec. 31.
Although not a classically trained chef, Kelly knows her way around a mixer and pastry bag, taking cues from her mother. She grew up loving to surprise her family with concoctions from her Easy Bake Oven and later, as an adult, developed a palate for desserts worth their price tag.
“Several years ago I started a notebook with ideas for a restaurant, just scribbling things or tearing pictures out of magazines,” Kelly said. “Fun, interesting flavors. Recipes that inspired me.”
One recipe that caught Kelly’s fancy was the iconic Barbara’s Champagne Cake from a baker in Windsor Heights, Iowa, a suburb of Des Moines. Kelly’s sister bought one as a surprise for her 18th birthday. It was love at first bite.
“Melted in my mouth,” Kelly said, her eyes closed, recalling the decadent dessert. “Rich and light.”
Kelly recreated the Champagne cake for The Dessertery ($6.99)—adding her signature touch of a frilly piped pastel pink flower on top with purple sprinkles. The entire confection looks like a pretty party favor, cradled in a satiny ribbon of white chocolate.
Surprisingly, Kelly’s most memorable dessert was simple: Grand Marnier and fresh whipped cream over raspberries, served in a champagne tulip glass, The Sycamore Inn in Rancho Cucamonga.
“A dessert doesn’t have to complex to make an impression,” Kelly said, taking a cue from the memory when she created her Cr... (Kansas City Star)Feb 3, 2016
