Constance Spry Climbing Rose

January 19, 2016

Named for the great amateur rosarian who was worked to save many varieties of old garden roses from the devastation of WWII, ‘Constance Spry’ was the first of the “English” roses to be bred by David Austin, introduced in 1965.

Constance Spry is considered one of the most superb of all climbing roses. A lovely true pink rose with magnificent, clear pink blooms of true Old Rose form. The flowers are exceptionally large, with a luminous delicacy that is hard to compare with any other rose. The blossoms have a strong myrrh fragrance and was the first English Rose to be introduced with this scent. As a climber it reaches up to 12 feet tall.

Costa Rica
A mixture of traditional and modern architectural elements, this two-story house in Costa Rica ($95 per night) includes both Great Camp–style twig-work railings and a contemporary window design. Charmingly or terrifyingly, depending on your view, its AirBnB listing cautions that “as with all tree houses, there is some movement when the wind blows, and this could be uncomfortable for people prone to motion sickness.”

Cave Junction, Oregon
The long deck to this Cave Junction, Oregon, tree house—which calls itself the “Calypso” and rents year round—features pine-tree cutouts in its railing.

Exposition Park Rose Garden: Los Angeles, California

The Exposition Park Rose Garden is a historic 7-acre sunken garden located in Exposition Park in Los Angeles, California. It has been called “one of the city’s best-kept secrets”.  It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1991.   From 1871 to 1911, the site of the rose garden was part of the city’s Agricultural Park. The rose garden area was then used for horse, camel, dog, and later automobile racing.  In the 1950s, the annual pruning demonstration drew thousands of rose enthusiasts to the park.  By the mid-1980s, the garden had more than 20,000 rose bushes and more than 200 varieties of roses.

Elegant Lady Hybrid Tea Rose

September 22, 2015

This stunning hybrid tea displays classic beauty and radiance through sublime ivory petals overlaid with a clear pink blush. The full buds swirl into large, 4½- to 5-inch, high-centered blooms, each comprised of 26 to 40 petals and boasting a mild yet pleasing sweet, tea-rose fragrance. They stand out beautifully against the healthy glossy, medium green foliage. These gorgeous blossoms will grace your garden in flushes throughout their early summer to late summer season.This tall, upright, well-branched shrub grows to a mature height of 5 to 5½ feet and a width of around 4 feet.

It’s ideal for the garden or large patio containers (containers will require winter protection). ‘Elegant Lady’ is an exceptionally beautiful and renowned hybrid tea rose! This rose performs best in medium-moisture, slightly acidic, well-drained loam in full sun. Water deeply and regularly, preferably in the morning, and avoid overhead watering. Make sure the plant has good air circulation, as this promotes vigorous and healthy growth and helps prevent disease. It should be pruned in the spring, with the removal of old canes and dead wood. Cut back canes that cross each other. Gardeners in warmer climates will want to cut the remaining canes by one-third, while those in colder climates will probably need to trim it a bit more.

Popcorn Flower

September 18, 2015

Viburnum plicatum (Japanese: yabudemari, oodemari), common name Japanese snowball, is a species of flowering plant in the family Adoxaceae (formerly Caprifoliaceae), native to mainland China, Korea, Japan, and Taiwan.

Growing to 3 m (10 ft) tall, it is a deciduous shrub. The leaves are opposite, 5–10 cm (2–4 in) long and 3–6 cm broad, simple ovate to oval, with a serrated margin. The flowers are produced in flat corymbs 5–10 cm (2–4 in) in diameter, comprising a central cluster of fertile yellowish-white flowers 5 mm diameter, surrounded by a ring of showy, sterile flowers 2–3 cm diameter, which act as a target guide to pollinating insects. The fruit is an ovoid blue-black drupe 8–10 mm long.

Viburnum plicatum is a popular ornamental plant, both in its native area and elsewhere in temperate regions. Some of the more popular cultivars are selected for having all of their flowers large and sterile with few or no fertile flowers; their flowerheads resemble a snowball, giving them the popular name “Japanese snowball bush”.

Pink Camellias

September 17, 2015

Camellia is a genus of flowering plants in the family Theaceae. They are found in eastern and southern Asia, from the Himalayas east to Japan and Indonesia. There are 100–250 described species, with some controversy over the exact number. The genus was named by Linnaeus after the Jesuit botanist Georg Joseph Kamel, who worked in the Philippines, though he never described a camellia. This genus is famous throughout East Asia; camellias are known as cháhuā (茶花) in Chinese, “tea flower”, an apt designation, as tsubaki (椿) in Japanese, as dongbaek-kkot (동백꽃) in Korean and as hoa tràor hoa chè in Vietnamese.

Of economic importance in the Indian subcontinent and Asia, leaves of C. sinensis are processed to create the popular beverage, tea. The ornamental Camellia japonica, Camellia oleifera and Camellia sasanqua and their hybrids are represented in cultivation by a large number of cultivars.

Data Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camellia

Image Source: https://www.greergardens.com/camellias1.htm

Camellias were cultivated in the gardens of China and Japan for centuries before they were seen in Europe. The German botanist Engelbert Kaempfer reported[5]that the “Japan Rose”, as he called it grew wild in woodland and hedgerow, but that many superior varieties had been selected for gardens. He was told that the plant had 900 names in Japanese. Europeans’ earliest views of camellias must have been their representations in Chinese painted wallpapers, where they were often represented growing in porcelain pots.

The first living camellias seen in England were a single red and a single white, grown and flowered in his garden at Thorndon Hall, Essex, by Robert James, Lord Petre, among the keenest gardeners of his generation, in 1739. His gardener James Gordon was the first to introduce camellias to commerce, from the nurseries he established after Lord Petre’s untimely death in 1743, at Mile End, Essex, near London.[6]

 

Image Source: https://www.greergardens.com/camellias1.htm

Camellias are evergreen shrubs or small trees up to 20 m (66 ft) tall. Their leaves are alternately arranged, simple, thick, serrated, and usually glossy. Their flowers are usually large and conspicuous, one to 12 cm in diameter, with five to nine petals in naturally occurring species of camellias. The colors of the flowers vary from white through pink colors to red; truly yellow flowers are found only in South China and Vietnam. Camellia flowers throughout the genus are characterized by a dense bouquet of conspicuous yellow stamens, often contrasting with the petal colors.[1][2] The so-called “fruit” of camellia plants is a dry capsule, sometimes subdivided in up to five compartments, each compartment containing up to eight seeds.

The various species of camellia plants are generally well-adapted to acidic soils rich in humus, and most species do not grow well on chalky soil or other calcium-rich soils. Most species of camellias also require a large amount of water, either from natural rainfall or from irrigation, and the plants will not tolerate droughts. However, some of the more unusual camellias – typically species from karst soils in Vietnam – can grow without too much water.
