A Flower For Every Day Grow Of June

June is the month for irises, but there are so many of the large- flowered June irises that it is difficult to know when to stop. Every year more and more are produced, each one lovelier than anything we had imagined, so what are we to do? I, for one, can’t scrap all my old friends, but I usually end by buying several new ones each season and then don’t know where to put them. The first move is to scrap all duplicates and reduce large dumps so that I can grow three kinds where I had a big patch of one before. Then I weed out those that are very similar and keep the best. And what happens next? I have been told that there are many better irises than the old-fashioned Iris pallida, with its delicate colour and haunting scent, but I still want it and its variegated forms, one with golden variegations and the other with silver stripes on the leaves, so lovely and so very slow to increase.

It is a good thing that the species irises don’t take up much room and are content, for the most part, to grow in odd corners and in narrow slits between stones. Two yellow ones, L kerneri and L fortes/u, look fragile but are quite tough. L kerneri likes a hot, dry position and I grow it in the open surface of an old wall. Lforrestii can stand a little shade but it won’t flower without some sun. The American irises seem to do better in shade. I have various members of the douglasiana group under the willow trees in the ditch and they bloom quite well in shades of lavender, pinky-mauve and purple. Their informal way of growing makes them ideal for growing in the ditch, but they take time to settle down as they hate disturbance. Here too I grow Iris chrysofar, a hybrid of chg.rographes and forte stii. It is a curious mixture of yellow and purple, with not very big flowers, and is not as good as either of its parents.

Iris grandma, with its exquisite little flowers hidden in its leaves and rich scent of greengage, is happy anywhere but takes a little time to settle down after division. Are there two forms of this I wonder? One I have is bigger in every way but identical otherwise.

Among the damp-loving irises L setosa seems easy enough, and the red form particularly so. I have too much lime to please laevigata and L kaempferi, but all the forms of L ribirka increase almost too fast. My favourite is still Snow Queen, with the crimson Eric the Red as a close second.

The tall Iris ocbroleuca flowers towards the end of June and is useful when the June irises are almost over. The yellow variety is very striking but less beautiful than the one with white flowers and yellow markings. Both are useful for picking as the flowers go on opening down the stalk after they have been put in water, and they can be kept attractive for over a week with a daily grooming, in the same way as our native pseudacorus. I used to grow the ordinary yellow flag but it gets too luxuriant and seeds itself everywhere, so now I harden my heart to the ordinary type but encourage the one with pale primrose flowers and the form with golden variegated leaves. I wonder if other gardeners suffered a shock as I did the first year I grew this. I did not know that it lost its variegation in the middle of the summer and went back to green, and thought I must have dug it up by mistake.

June is the month when veratrums flower—if they are going to. I haven’t yet discovered what they really like. The best flower spikes I have ever had were one damp summer on Vera- /rum album which was growing on a shady bank. It was so magnificent that I put a dark-flowered V. nigrum nearby, and V. viride, which has green flowers. But I do not think it matters if V. album grows in shade or in full sun, which, of course, is where it grows in its native Austria. There the great ribbed leaves do not get ruined by slugs and snails as ours d6. We grow veratrums for the handsome clumps they make, with broad leaves and towering spires of dark velvety brown, white or grey- green, but it is worth looking into the individual flowers which are exquisitely formed. Though veratrums are so common in other countries they are scarce in gardens, probably because they are usually grown from seed and develop slowly.

It always comes as a surprise when I see big buds swelling on the dwarf Iris chamaeiris, buds almost as tall as the leaves. These little irises grow well in gaps in paving and are a lovely sight when the flowers in blue, purple, primrose or gold open among the 3″ leaves. The white Bride is a little taller and a little later. It looks lovely thrusting up its grey leaves at the edge of a stone path. Two others about the same size are Green Spot, which has blotches of green on its white flowers, and another green and white dwarf called Green Eyes.

Plants that flower in March sometimes need careful placing. By the time they come they have a right to expect a little warmth and sunshine, but March can be a beast when it catches all the trusting things that have been making growth in February. I sometimes wonder if Bergenia eiliata ought to have a little protection in the bad years. The flowers are lovely when they grow as they should, with delicate apple-pink flowers, little round buds and red stems and calyces When things go well the flat, hairy leaves, green with a reddish tinge, are a wonderful background for the pink and white blossom, but I have known seasons when the poor flowers have to struggle to open without a scrap of leaf behind them, and the flowers instead of being delicate pink are seared and browned by frost. Some bad years there is hardly a flower on any of the bergenias except the easy, ordinary B. sehmidtil and B. cords:filth, both of which flower well and give no trouble. I certainly don’t despise those chubby pink flowers, but I would like to see what some of the others can do. After collecting bergenias busily for a long time it is heartbreaking to have the flowering season pass by without a single flower and to know that one has to wait another year to see what they are like. I have the white B. milesii but I haven’t yet seen its face; one that is supposed to grow very tall has never flowered, nor a miniature I have grown for twenty years. But really, I suppose we collect bergenias for the beauty of their leaves, and the flowers are an added delight when we get them. All the same, I should like to know how to make my reluctant plants produce flowers.

The ordinary kingcup, Caltha palustris, is one of the most perfect spring flowers, with its lacquered globes of gold on thick stems, and magnificent glossy leaves Each stem, with its flowers, buds and wonderful foliage, is a work of art, but unfortunately it grows rather big and is better in a damp meadow unless one has a very big garden. But the double marsh marigold, C. p. fiore pleno, is a much neater plant, and when a clump is fully out makes a dazzling display. After the flowers are over the leaves get big and make good ground cover. The white king- cup is even neater and so unusual that not everyone realises what it is. I have never seen a double version of this plant; it would be a beautiful addition to the early garden if it should exist. Although these plants delight in moisture they will grow in an ordinary bed if it is not too dry, and like other plants that really need moisture will get on without it if they are grown in the shade.

Forsythias come into their own in March—the rich F. inter- media spettabilis and the slightly less strident F. sir:pen:a, which I have trained against the seat wall of the malthouse, and which would be just as good against a north wall. The dwarf Forsythia viridissima bronxensis is a useful little shrub for the rock garden, with lemon-colored flowers. I have it in the front of one of my terraced beds where it makes a welcome splash of color early in the year and 18″ of useful foliage for the rest of the season. F. ovate is dwarf and bushy and can be used to bring early color to a mixed border.

The searing winds and bitter frosts that can wreck the March garden don’t bother the forsythias much, but in many places the birds do. Devonshire seems to be unlucky in this respect. I have heard the sad tale from Sidmouth and Tiverton, and friends near Chudleigh are so tired of losing every forsythia bud every year by ravaging tits and bullfinches that they have admitted defeat and removed most of the forsythias and put in other trees.

The cream flowers of Osmanthus delavayi are small but very sweet, and to get the best from them I think the bush should be planted in not too exposed a position. My, osmanthus is in rather a bleak place and sometimes those delicate flowers at the top of the bush are seared by frost or wind I recently saw a very tall bush in a Worcestershire garden planted against a summerhouse and with taller shrubs behind it, and I was told that each year it produces a crop of perfect flowers.

The Floral Proportion to Surroundings

The floral design must suit the intended placement in its surroundings. The arrangement should fit the area in size and in shape, as well as in style. Imagine a massive wooden table with a petite rose arrangement placed on top of it. The size of the table would overpower the arrangement, diminishing its visual impact. The small arrangement would be more in proportion in a book shelf niche or on a small table.

Determining proper proportion for flowers that will be carried or worn is also very important. The flowers should not overwhelm the person, yet should be large enough for visual impact. Imagine a bride who expects a beautiful bouquet. If the bouquet is either too small or too large, the effect is awkward and out of proportion.

Proportion is very important when designing for any event, whether it is a wedding or a birthday party. Not only should the floral designs be in proper scale to the room, but they should also be suitable and in harmony with the theme and the location. To design an arrangement for an event that has proper proportion as well as harmony and suitability.

Proportion of the Flowers and Foliages to the Container

The Greek’s Golden Mean Japanese traditions are used to attain a pleasing proportion between the plant material and the container. Floral designers have learned that proportion will be pleasing if the height of the arrangement is at least the height or width of a container, whichever is greatest.

Beginning floral designers often create designs that are too short. The flowers, not the container, should be highlighted. In general, upright arrangements should be taller than they are wide and horizontal centerpieces will be wider than they are tall.

A maximum dimension is not stated however, because that depends upon the background, the type of plant material, the theme, the container, and the skill and artistic expression of the designer. If thin, wispy plant materials are used, the arrangement height may the contamer height. An arrangement placed on the floor in a entryway may need the container height to provide the visual impact and proper scale for the site.

Containers that are visually heavy, such as a dark, bulky pottery vase, can visually support a taller, larger design than a clear carafe-shaped glass vase. If the same container is available in many colors, the lighter colored or clear ones will support arrangements that are shorter than their darker colored counterparts.

Exceptions

Centerpieces are a major exception to the 1/z times the container height rule-ofthumb. In a dining situation, the centerpiece should not obstruct the view of the people sitting at the table. It is ideal to be able to see over, through (or around), or under a centerpiece. Bud vases or small vase arrangements, placed in the center of a dining table, may also be shortened to allow viewing over them.

Proportion of the Flowers and Foliages to Each Other

The individual flowers and foliages within the floral design should complement each other in size. Variation in sizes of flowers is pleasing and interesting, but huge jumps in size may not be in proper proportion to each other. An arrangement containing only very small flowers, such as baby’s breath, and very large flowers, such as Fuji chrysanthemums, does not display proper proportion. Flowers of intermediate size would provide a more pleasing scale relationship within the arrangement.

The Dutch Flemish period was a time of great horticultural interest. Flowers were introduced from all parts of the world and were used to create elaborate mixed designs during this period. The designs were carefully styled, large, and flamboyant arrangements with either symmetrical or asymmetrical balance. Careful attention was paid to the selection and placement of the flowers. Fruit, shells, bird nests or birdcages, and other objects of nature were also added as accessories. During the latter part of this period, flowers were shown in all views—front, sides, and back. Space and depth were emphasized more as compared to the Renaissance style. Many containers were used, including urns, glass vases, goblets, low baskets and bowls, and Delft vases.

Floral designs during this period were favored both for the wealthy and the middle class and for both formal and informal occasions. Many paintings of this period show floral designs as an important part of the scene.

Influence on Today’s Designs

The lavish, colorful mixtures of the Dutch Flemish floral designs have influenced many contemporary floral designs, including banquet centerpieces and hotel lobby designs. The use of accessories is still a prominent part of many arrangements. Today’s designs also use depth and display flowers from many angles, which originated in the Dutch Flemish period.

 

The Floral Or Leaf Bud Cuttings

Many plants cannot be propagated by leaves alone. One option is to take leaf-bud cuttings. Leaf-bud cuttings are composed of the leaf blade, the petiole, a bud at the base of the petiole, and a portion of the stem. The leaf provides the energy for the development of roots. The roots sprout from the stem and are often concentrated at the node of the stem. The bud develops into the stem of the new plant.

Grafting         

A method of asexual reproduction common with woody plants is grafting. Grafting is the process in which the stem of one plant is made to grow on the roots of another plant. The portion of the graft that is to become the stem is the scion. The lower portion of the plant that includes the root system is called the rootstock or the understock. Budding is a form of grafting in which the scion consists of a bud.

Roses are grafted. Usually, a vigorous, cold-tolerant species of rose is selected for the rootstock. Vigorous rootstocks provide an abundance of water and minerals to the scion. A desired rose hybrid that might not have a strong root system is grafted to the rootstock.

Grafting may involve placing individual buds into a stem or a stem being placed onto another stem. In either case, it is important that the cambium wood of both the scion and the rootstock line up. Once placed together, the union should be protected from moisture loss. Also, the scion and the rootstock materials must be capable of growing together for a successful graft.

Layering

Layering is a method of asexual reproduction whereby roots form on a stem while the stem is still attached to the parent plant. The advantage to layering is the parent plant provides the plant-to-be with water and minerals until it produces its own roots. This method is slow as compared to other methods. A form of layering called air layering is used with foliage plants including Dieffenbachia, Ficus, and Dracaena.

Separation and Divison

Propagation of floriculture crops can be done by separating or dividing. This is a common method used with perennials and foliage plants. Some plants produce vegetative plant structures that can be removed intact from the parent plant. Removal and planting of these vegetative structures is separation. With division, the plant roots or the entire plant may be cut into sections to make two or more plants from the original plant. Daylilies can be divided by digging a plant and cutting it into smaller pordons.

There are several methods used to propagate bulbs. Some species of lilies produce bulbils or tiny above-ground bulbs in the axils of their leaves. These can be removed and planted Lilies also may produce tiny

bulbs below the ground called bulblets. Some lilies and fritillaries can be

propagated by removing bulb scales and placing them in moist medium. In time, they root and produce bulblets that can be separated and planted.

Tulips and Narcissus reproduce by natural division. Bulbs are produced off the main bulb. These are separated and planted. Hyacinths are very slow to reproduce by natural division. They can be encouraged to produce bulblets  by scooping or scoring. Scooping involves the removal of the basal plate of the bulb and the base of all of the bulb scales. Placed upside down in a warm dry cabinet, a bulblet will form at the base of each scale. Scoring is similar to scooping. However, the basal plate is not removed. Two cuts that cross the basal plate are made about a 1/4 inch deep.

Corms, including crocus and gladiola, can be cut into smaller pieces. Each piece of the corm must have a bud that is capable of developing into the stem. Corms also develop small corms called cormels. These miniature corms can be separated and planted.

Tissue Culture

A very technical method of asexual propagation is tissue culture. Tissue culture involves the culture or growing of small pieces of plant tissue. It is performed on an artificial medium under sterile conditions. Foliage plants, pot plants and cut flowers are propagated by tissue culture methods.

The Designing with Everlasting Flowers

Plant materials that can be successfully dried or preserved are called dried flowers or everlasting plant materials. Silk or other manufactured flowers are also everlasting materials. Everlasting flowers or “everlastings” are very long lasting, but do not really last forever. However, the term everlasting emphasizes the fact that these preserved or manufactured materials will continue to add color and texture to a setting for an extended time

Dried or everlasting flowers bring the outdoors in with memories of the summer garden and its beauty and color. These plant materials have many of the same attractive qualities as their fresh counterparts and can be designed in many of the same ways. Everlastings have the added benefit of looking attractive while storing them in plain view.

PRESERVING PLANT MATERIALS

Few people take full advantage of the wealth of materials from the garden and nature that can brighten and enliven an interior. Many beautiful flowers, pods, leaves, and grasses may be gathered from the spring, summer, and fall gardens and roadsides to dry or preserve for enjoyment as wreaths or arrangements indoors. The methods of preserving plant materials range from very simple to more involved and are chosen according to the type of plant material.

WHEN AND HOW TO HARVEST

Flowers, pods, and grasses may be harvested in any season. For the best results and longest lasting qualities, flowers and other materials should be picked at the peak of color and shape. Look for the brightest colors for each type because some fading will occur.

The consequences of gathering plant materials after their peak is the condition known as shattering, which is a breaking apart or falling out of petals, seeds, or other plant parts. Grasses and cattails have very noticeable consequences if harvested too late. Ornamental grasses, including pampas grass and maiden grass, should be harvested just before peak or just before the grass plumes “fluff out.” If picked when the grass plumes are already fuzzy looking, the grasses will totally “fuzz” a room when brought into a warm interior. Cattails should be harvested in summer when they have turned dark brown. The “old” cattail will shatter if harvested in fall.

The time of day for harvesting is also important. Plant materials should be picked when it is dry. Do not harvest when there is dew or any moisture on the plant. The middle of the day is an optimum time to avoid dew from

the morning and any collecting moisture at nightfall. Do not harvest when the plant is wilted.

Most plant materials can be harvested by cutting them with a knife, scissors, or florist shears. Cones can be picked from the tree or the ground.

Harvest flowers and leaves at different stages and sizes. Flowers can be chosen as buds, partially open flowers, and fully open flowers.

PRESERVING METHODS

Different methods of drying and preserving can be used depending upon the type of plant materials. Experience and trial and error testing will help determine promising drying methods for new materials. A floral designer should always dry or preserve more materials than actually needed to account for some losses.

Some plant materials require no extra care in drying, other than har- vesting them at the proper time to avoid shattering. Examples include many types of pods, seed heads (purple coneflower, teasel), and other materials, such as corn tassels and brown dock. A weed to one person may be a great dried flower to the next person.

Hanging Method

The hanging method, also called the hang dry method, is a method of collecting plant materials having a low moisture content and bunching them to hang upside down to dry. Some flowers and leaves dry with very little change in appearance; others will appear slightly wrinkled or puckered.

Flowers with a higher moisture content can also be dried but may have a more puckered or wrinkled appearance.

This method works well for both annuals and perennials, such as baby’s breath, blue salvia, plume or cockscomb celosia, goldenrod, clover-like globe amaranth or gomphrena, grasses, larkspur, lavender, love-in-a-mist pods, and strawflowers.

The hanging method is easy to do and requires only a few supplies, such as rubber bands, hooks or clothes hangers, and twist-ties to tie the bunches onto the hanger. An airy, warm, dry area away from direct sunlight is an ideal place to help the drying process.
