Master Gardener: M is for Michaelmas daisies — asters for fall color - The Daily World
New England asters (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae) are native from Vermont to Alabama and west to North Dakota, Wyoming and New Mexico. Stout-stemmed plants 3 to 5 inches tall and almost as wide have blooms that are violet blue in basic form with others in blue shades, white, pink, nearly red and deep purple. Two favorites are Alma Potschke and Harrington’s Pink, each with clear pink single flowers.
The New York aster, Aster novi-bellgii, is native to eastern North America (Zones 1-24). It grows 4 feet wide and 3 feet tall with full clusters of bright blue-violet flowers.
Among the many choices of A. novi-belgii are Persian Rose (rose pink) and semi-double Professor Kippenburg (lavender blue). The robust Climax variety bears large sprays of single medium-blue blossoms on stems 6 feet tall.
Aster x frikartii Monch, native to the Himalayas, is planted in other parts of the perennial beds in my garden. It is upright 16 inches tall and wide with purple blue sprays of 2-inch-wide flowers. Their growth habit differs a bit from many of the above plants and are the finest, most useful and widely adapted of perennials.
In large borders or among shrubs, tall asters with their abundant color are invaluable as companion plantings. Hardy chrysanthemums and asters are complementary with their contrasting colors of peach, yellow and rusty reds. Clouds of coreopsis, switch grass and other grasses, black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia) and the burgundy seed pods of penstemons add to the color until frost arrives. Massing several plants of some of these varieties together creates a delicate balance.
At season’s end, a carefully planned palette transitions to blue, gold and burgundy and a colorful finale as winter approaches.
This article, by Master Gardener Dolores Cavanah, is part of an occasional series in which she describes the plants she most admires at her expansive garden at Schafer Meadows, east of Montesano. Visit her during the 2020 WSU Master Gardener Garden Tour on July 18.

Summer Solstice Marks Beginning Of Fun In Apple Valley-Rosemount - Apple Valley, MN Patch
Native American tribes have long observed the summer solstice, and many continue the rituals today. Tribes in present-day Wyoming constructed a "medicine wheel," a stone wheel with 28 spikes at the top of Bighorn Mountain, to observe the solstice. It was aligned with the sunrise and sunset on the solstice, and is accessible only in the summer months. Similar wheels have been found in South Dakota, Montana and parts of Canada. Another ceremonial ritual is the Sundance, originated by the Sioux tribe in the western and northwestern U.S., because it was believed the sun was a manifestation of the Great Spirit. The four-day celebration of singing, dancing, drumming, prayer and meditation, and skin piercing concluded with a ceremonial felling of a tree, symbolic of the connection between the heavens and Earth. 2. Thousands will gather at Stonehenge, a Neolithic megalith monument in the south of England, to celebrate the summer solstice. Stonehenge, built around 2500 B.C., lines up perfectly with both the summer and winter solstices. There are some conspiracy theories about the formation of rocks — including that Stonehenge was built as a landing zone for alien aircraft, according to Popular Mechanics. A more believable explanation is that Stonehenge was built as an ancient calendar to mark the passing of time. 3. Not all cultures called June 21 the summer solstice and it meant different things to different people. According to History.com, in northern Europe, the longest day of the year was known as Midsummer, while Wiccans and other Negopagan groups called it Litha, and some Christian churches called it St. John's Day in commemoration of the birth of John the Baptist. On ancient Greek calendars, the summer solstice and the beginning of a new year coincided, and it also marked the one-month countdown to the opening of the Olympic games. 4. The summer solstice is steeped in pagan folklore and superstition. According to some accounts, people wore protective garlands of herbs and flowers to ward off evil spirits that appear on the summer solstice. Among the most powerful, according to History.com, was "chase devil," known today as St. John's Wort because of its association with St. John's Day. Lore also holds that bonfires on Midsummer, as the solstice was known among northern Europeans,... Jul 6, 2018
Gardens run the gamut: 2018 tour features exotics and natives, commercial displays and private retreats
His new garden features the dark-red leaves of Wyoming cannas and the variegated foliage of Stuttgart cannas as well as many unique plants like Ismene (Peruvian daffodil), snaggletooth, pineapple lily, King Tut grass, datura, foxtail lilies, and a double yellow tree peony.Perry uses his cutting garden to create floral bouquets that he shares with others. He added a Montreal rose and a Quebec rose to his rose garden this year. One of his favorite flowers, the Mexican petunia, is flanked by Mexican heather and Mexican hat flowers. Beyond the cutting garden is a deck and terraced steps. The fast-growing "sem" spirea line the steps going to the lower yard and lakeshore. Watch for these potted plants: bougainvillea, gardenia, trumpet flower and voodoo lilies.Bill and Jessie Blanchard1016 Fillmore St.AlexandriaNestled behind a white picket fence, Bill and Jessie have created a retreat filled with native perennials to attract butterflies, hummingbirds and bees. Benary giant zinnias greet visitors on the right as they enter the yard. Some plants are seedlings and may not be blooming yet. Bill and Jessie are participating in the Great Sunflower Project by planting Lemon Queen sunflowers; they then track the number of bees that visit to shed light on the effects of pesticides on pollinators.A new garden area in the backyard includes many pollinator-friendly plants, such as compass plants, royal catchfly, late figwort, sweet black-eyed Susan and giant purple hyssop, as well as coneflowers, lobelia, lupines and several types of native liatris that rabbits and deer won't touch.

ECOVIEWS: State flowers and trees make statements
California and Louisiana are the golden poppy and the magnolia blossom, respectively. The cottonwood is the state tree of Kansas, Nebraska and Wyoming perhaps because the choice of native trees that grow throughout each state is somewhat limited.The official tree of Texas is the pecan. (And, as of 2013, pecan is the official state pie.) For the folks in West Texas, the mesquite tree might have been a more suitable selection. Considering its size, perhaps Texas should have two state trees. The choice of the Texas bluebonnet as the state flower seems a reasonable one.Having a state legislator who is a botanist might be a good idea considering some choices that have been made. Georgia, Vermont and Alabama each picked a non-native species for their state flower. Georgia’s Cherokee rose is no more Cherokee than any other Asian plant that was introduced to the New World in the 1700s. They may be pretty, but they are not native. Cherokee rose is even considered an invasive species in some areas.Vermont, likewise, made the odd choice of red clover as its state flower. Where the first red clover plants introduced to the country came from may be debated, but the origin was certainly Europe, Asia or Africa, not Vermont.Alabama may hold the record for the most perplexing selection of a state flower. In 1959, the legislature replaced goldenrods, beautiful fall-blooming native plants, with camellias. Legend has it that the change was pushed through by garden club ladies who did not think a wild flower should have pride of place.In 1999, legislators specified Camellia japonica as the state flower, thus giving Alabama a pretty Asian bloom as its state symbol. Perhaps in an effort to counter that puzzling decision, at the same time, the oakleaf hydrangea was designated the “official state wildflower.” Goldenrod remains as the state flower o...
