Help Save the Monarchs!

 

BRINGING BACK THE MONARCHS at SOARES FLOWER GARDEN NURSERY
by Diane Miller

SUMMER 2017 RECAP

Things seemed a bit dismal in early July as we had not seen a single monarch butterfly at the nursery. None was seen at my home butterfly garden for that matter. I was becoming quite alarmed that this might be the year that we would witness the drastic decline in the monarch population. I had personally raised 1000 plus monarchs from eggs in 2016 (which was a full time job) and was certain that the future generations would have somehow found their way back to my gardens by the end of June 2017. I was also involved in the Butterfly Project at Spohr Gardens and was anxiously awaiting the arrival of these beautiful creatures as we had planned a public butterfly release for the beginning of August.  Read More

Hydrangea Haven!

 

Hydrangea Fun Facts

 

1. A hydrangea flower consists of two different types of florets: the showy, papery flowers are known as sterile florets and serve only to
attract pollinators; the tiny fertile florets are where pollination and seed-set take place. Mophead hydrangeas are comprised mostly
of sterile florets; lacecaps mostly of fertile florets.

 

2. Big-leaf hydrangeas and mountain hydrangeas are closely related and native to the same region of Japan, but mountain hydrangeas have better bud hardiness because they occur in the mountains where conditions are harsher.

 

3. Hydrangeas are notoriously water-needy, but the “hydra” part of their name actually refers to the seed capsules’ resemblance to ancient Greek water-carrying vessels.

 

4. There are about 49 species of hydrangeas. Four species are native to North America, including smooth hydrangea and oak leaf hydrangea.
