Six Great Plants

first_img Once torch lilies are established, they become true survivors. They’re in the “must have” section of any perennial list. Select a full-sun border spot with good drainage. The striking plants show up splendidly against a dark green background. From torch lilies’ sometimes bewildering flower variability comes superior selections. And “Shining Scepter” is one of the best, with its intensely golden 3-foot-tall spikes. Shining Scepter blooms just two to three weeks in late spring to early summer. Unlike other torch lilies, it’s a bright, bold yellow that blends into a peachy-orange color. It reminds me of those orange-and-vanilla-ice-cream popsicles I loved as a kid. This is a true bedding perennial. In groups of 20 to 30 on 8-inch to 10-inch centers, it generates an incredible display. Despite its cast-iron physiology, it requires good fertility to produce the best flowers. Fertilize in early spring and again in midsummer after you remove the bloom spikes. Coreopsis grandiflora ‘Flying Saucers’ “Flying Saucers” has large, bright-yellow flowers that catch your attention. The foliage is a dense cluster of rosettes that forms a wonderful, clump-like display in the pot. It looks like gangbusters in a fall-established, 1-gallon container. As a genus, coreopsis is a highly praised garden perennial. On wiry stems well above the lance-shaped leaves, its yellow, daisy-like flowers nod gracefully in light breezes from late May through July. Deadheading (removing spent flowers) prolongs the flowering. Plants grow up to 3 feet tall, depending on the species or variety. Plant coreopsis in full sun in a well-drained site. Water during periods of sparse rainfall. Rosmarinus officinalis ‘Athens Blue Spires’ All coreopsis perform well in the landscape. They’re fantastic in groups of 50. Some seem to expire in two or three years. This is reportedly not the case for Flying Saucers. But the test of time is ongoing. My specimens are in their second year. Pentas lanceolata ‘Nova’ Like all rosemary, it requires bright sun, well-drained soils and a relatively high organic content to grow its best. Once established, it needs no than a light spring fertilizing. We are inundated with new perennials today. Perhaps too many, if you’re like me and can’t resist taking every blooming thing home every time you visit your garden center. However, a few plants over the past few years have proved top performers in Georgia gardens. Here are six of my favorites. All have passed through the University of Georgia evaluation program. These are the essential plants for any garden. I chose them for their vigorous growth, garden center appeal and unusually good landscape performance over a range of soils. You may have to search for the cultivars, but they’re all in the market in Georgia. Kniphofia uvaria ‘Shining Scepter’ Full sun, good fertility, drainage and regular watering is the rule in Georgia. It will likely not require watering in more moderate climates. Young plants benefit from pinching. It’s easy to grow and relatively pest-free, unless you consider tiger swallowtail butterflies pests.center_img Phlox paniculata ‘Robert Poore’ I have yet to have a midsummer garden visitor who didn’t exclaim, “What is that thing? I want cuttings!” Pentas Nova is now a Georgia Gold Medal Plant Selections Winner. I’ve never grown a bad Cuphea. “Lavender Lady,” “Georgia Scarlet” and many other prostrate forms grace my rock gardens and borders. Cuphea micropetalum is something else altogether. It’s big, showy and great for hummers and butterflies. The 3-foot-tall plants grow fairly fast and seem to thrive in the heat. The cigar-shaped trumpet flowers are best from midsummer to frost. They’re prone to seemingly random expressions of bright yellow, orange and deep red. From 20 feet or more you see a pleasant display. But the real pleasure comes from sitting next to this plant on a patio or deck. I find myself staring, just taking in the high-contrast colors. I thought all rosemary pretty much looked alike, grew alike and tasted just fine on roast chicken. Then came “Athens Blue Spires,” a solitary rosemary planted next to the campus greenhouse doors. It grew vigorously. It bloomed profusely. It smelled heavenly in the late-morning sun. And yes, it tasted great on chicken. After five years, through drought and cold, no one could ignore its incredible mid-spring spread of powder-blue flowers against deep green leaves. A mature specimen (ours) stands 5 feet tall and equally wide. We don’t fully know how cold-hardy it is. It’s likely hardy in Zone 6. Even treated as an annual or a patio plant to be brought in, its vigor and flowering habit make it a wonderful kitchen herb. Cuphea micropetalum (The Great Cuphea) By now it’s no secret I’m a butterfly/hummingbird gardening zealot. Having grown this pentas selection for seven years now, I would never plant a butterfly garden without Pentas Nova. This plant has no downside. Larger and much more vigorous than most pentas, it sports truly beautiful lavender-rose flower clusters that are irresistible to hummingbirds, butterflies, bee moths, sphinx moths and other colorful garden animations. Nova is a full-sun annual that benefits from early pinching and occasional deadheading and shaping. A meticulous gardener can generate an incredibly dense plant by midsummer. But left to its own devices, it’s still a good performer. It grows best when soil temperatures are warm, so northern-climate gardeners may want to plant this treasure in June. Phlox are my favorite perennials. They produce long periods of blooms, attract butterflies and hummingbirds, are easy to grow and propagate and can withstand 100-degree summers and 25-below-zero winters. Robert Poore is the perennial my neighbors most commonly request. It contains all the necessary traits of a good phlox: strong stems, large floral display over eight weeks in Georgia and relative freedom from disease. The color is a clean, rosy purple that seems to glow when planted next to the common “Lavender” hand-me-down phlox. This phlox is slowly making its way into mass production. It makes an incredible mass display. You can get away with mass-planting because it has good mildew resistance. Gardeners will cherish the new, mildew-resistant phlox varieties and new colors now available, including some of the finest flower colors and diversity ever seen in the genus. I can’t wait for spring.last_img read more

Boerma honored

first_imgRoger Boerma, former professor of crop and soil sciences at the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and current executive director of Georgia Seed Development, recently received the 2013 NAPB Plant Breeding Impact Award from the National Association of Plant Breeders and the Plant Breeding Coordinating Committee. One the organizations’ most prestigious honors, the impact award recognizes an individual who has made significant advancements in the field of plant breeding in the area of applied variety and/or technology development, causing a measurable impact on crop production. It also recognizes the individual’s exceptional accomplishments in teaching and collaboration. The presentation was made during the NAPB annual meeting held June 2-5, 2013 in Tampa, Fla. “Dr. Boerma’s contributions to the field of plant breeding are immense,” says Philip Simon, chairman of the NAPB Awards Panel. “Not only has he developed 25 soybean varieties, but he also was involved in the formation of organizations that will ensure that we will have new generations of plant breeders and new varieties of beneficial crops.” A nationally recognized soybean geneticist and professor emeritus at the UGA, Boerma was instrumental in developing UGA’s Centers for Soybean Improvement and for Applied Genetic Technologies. He is one of the founding fathers of the Institute for Plant Breeding, Genetics and Genomics at the university. Since 2011, Boerma has led Georgia Seed Development, an agency that produces foundation plant material and markets seed and plant materials designed to improve crop yields for growers in Georgia and across the United States. Georgia Seed Development works closely with the UGA geneticists and plant breeders; The University of Georgia Research Foundation (UGARF), which licenses the school’s proprietary varieties for sale; and the Georgia Crop Inspection Association (GCIA), which provides quality control for Georgia plant and seed varieties. The four groups use a “systems approach” to discovering, propagating, licensing and testing plant and seed materials to ensure a seamless route from university lab to wholesaler. Co-developed by Boerma, this unified research-and-propagation model brings many varieties to the market faster than other methods. Boerma is the second recipient of the Plant Breeding Impact Award, which was established in 2013 to recognize those who contribute to the NAPB’s mission to strengthen U.S. plant breeding research, technology and education. About the National Association of Plant Breeders and the Plant Breeding Coordinating CommitteeThe National Association of Plant Breeders was begun as an initiative of the Plant Breeding Coordinating Committee and is the advocacy group that represents plant breeders in federal, state, commercial and non-government organizations. The Plant Breeding Coordinating Committee serves as a forum regarding issues and opportunities of national and global importance to the public and private sectors of the U.S. national plant breeding effort. About Georgia Seed DevelopmentGeorgia Seed Development is responsible for overseeing the foundation plant material production in Georgia. GSD works closely with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, the University of Georgia Research Foundation and the Georgia Crop Improvement Association to support research projects and bring new cultivars to market. Since 1990, GSD has annually provided significant funding to UGA for cultivar development.last_img read more

TD Bank survey finds 64 percent of US colleges are ‘going green’ as way to offset lower income and spur IT investment

first_imgThe survey also highlighted that higher education executives have a lack of confidence in the U.S. economy overall, with just one quarter saying they are very optimistic, while 51% are neutral.Going Green to Save GreenReduced energy costs are one way college and university executives are looking to trim operating expenses (64%). Other areas of prospective cost savings include:Reducing vendor relationships and procurement costs (50%)Freezing or reducing compensation for faculty and staff (49%)Freezing most or all capital projects (42%)Reducing administrative staff (25%)Reducing or eliminating some academic programs (25%)Reducing student services and financial aid (15%) Despite seeking ways to save, investing in on-campus “green” power or environmental sustainability projects (25%) is a key area where institutions are looking to increase capital expenditures, with over three quarters of respondents (77%) expecting to increase spending on these projects over the next five years.Projects in Need of FinancingExecutives have a long list of projects they’re seeking to finance over the next 12 months, including:Renovating existing campus infrastructure and facilities (63%)Expanding or creating new academic programs (50%)Investing in IT and equipment (48%)Investments in heavy equipment, office/lab equipment or furniture (16%) In addition to “going green,” executives expect capital campaign fundraising and private gifts will yield the greatest potential for expansion projects (51%), followed by tuition revenue (26%), bond financing (7%), bank or institutional financing (5%) and endowment investment (2%).About TD Bank’s SurveyTD Bank polled financial decision makers and influencers at four-year private colleges and universities in the U.S. to understand their main financial concerns when considering campus investments over the next 12 months. The survey was conducted by ORC International, an Infogroup company, in April and May 2011. Overall results for n=100 can be interpreted with an error margin of +/- 9.75 at a 95% confidence level. CHERRY HILL, N.J. and PORTLAND, Maine, July 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ —center_img TD Bank,According to a recent survey by TD Bank, college and university financial decision-makers across the country cite reduced tuition and declining fee revenue as major causes for concern and are increasingly considering “going green” to save on operating expenses, while ramping up information technology (IT) spending and investments in updating campus infrastructure.TD Bank’s survey of chief financial officers, accounting officers, comptrollers and other financial managers at private, not-for-profit colleges and universities across the US found that nearly three out of four (72%) respondents view reduced net tuition and fee revenue as their biggest financial concern, even as they deal with decreasing private gift income (59%).Despite these concerns, spending is expected to increase in many areas over the next 12 months, with 77% expecting to invest in on-campus “green” power or environmental sustainability projects over the next five years.Financial ConcernsRespondents also report concern about cash flow management (39%), reduced endowment market value (31%), weakened balance sheets (22%) and access to credit (19%). As the stock market has bounced back from its lows in the fall of 2008, concern about loss of endowment market value has been cut in half, from 68% over the past three years to just 31% today.The financial management practices that college and university financial decision-makers expect to focus on in the coming year include:  Reduced private gifts income (68%)Reduced net tuition and fee revenue (61%)Weakened balance sheets (48%)Cash flow management (48%)Access to credit (39%)Reduced endowment market value (36%)last_img read more

PJM: FirstEnergy coal plant closures no threat to reliability

first_imgPJM: FirstEnergy coal plant closures no threat to reliability FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Platts:Retirement of FirstEnergy Solutions’ 4,004 MW of coal and diesel generating units in Ohio and Pennsylvania by June 2021 and June 2022 will not adversely impact reliability, PJM Interconnection said Monday in revealing the results of a new study.PJM completed its 30-day reliability analysis of the units Friday, according to an emailed statement.

The Walking Dead Mid-season Premier Fails to Impress

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York By Lissa HarrisBecause I have loved The Walking Dead for five and a half seasons, I’ll start with the good.Daryl and his bazooka are awesome. His character continues to be the greasiest bad ass on the planet and the moment he took out Negan’s bikers with a missile was a rallying point for all who watched. In fact, the scene leading up to Bazooka Daryl was intense and emotional.It was the deeply thoughtful and action-packed scenes we’ve gotten used to seeing the last five seasons. The first episode of the mid-season finale was off to a good start. But it was all downhill from there.Episode 9, “No Way Out,” picked up right where they left off back in late November. Rick and other residents had covered themselves with walker guts and were attempting to escape among the thousands of walking dead unnoticed. We saw this before in season one, in the Episode 2, “Guts,” when the characters must find a way to escape an overrun Atlanta. In this season’s mid-finale, “Start to Finish,” Rick recalls this successful strategy and suggests it to the remaining residents of Alexandria.Of course, they are disgusted but agree to go along. We leave them as they are exiting the house to walk among the dead. Then the camera focuses on Jesse’s very fragile son, Sam. He looks terrified and calls out, “Mom?” End of scene.We were left to wonder, for almost three months, what was about to happen to them now that they’ve been discovered. But Sam’s slip-up apparently had no effect because it’s never mentioned in the mid-season premier. Wait, what? That, my friends, is what’s known as “lazy writing.”“Start to Finish” also gave us a climax of sorts on the characters’ opposing philosophies, which I wrote about in November. This discussion was communicated most beautifully in Episode 4, “Here’s Not Here.” The episode highlighted Morgan’s transformation from insanity to peacefulness via the help of a man who believed that people could live in this savage world and still hold onto their humanity.It was this debate that seemed to drive the entire first half of season six. In “No Way Out” we got the answer: If we all work together, we can achieve a new civilization and a society worth fighting for.But isn’t that what all the nearby gangs think? I’m sure the Wolves believe that by working together they are achieving an ideal society, same as Negan’s gang, judging from the first scene of the episode. These gangs don’t believe in everyman for himself, they work together for their own version of the “common good.”Our heroes are only realizing this now, and express it with the cheesiest of dialogue. In Gabriel’s epiphany, he states: “God will save Alexandria because God has given us the courage to save it ourselves.”Cut to a scene that slices through the edits as quickly as our heroes slice through walkers. A cute trick but not enough.Rick’s big moment comes in his monologue at the end. A touching moment until he declares to an unconscious Carl that he wants to show him “this brand new world” that Deanna showed him. I would have been more engaged if I knew exactly what that vision entailed. It’s still relatively unclear what Deanna had planned other than to build more walls and a school.I would have been more impressed if Rick had decided he was going to travel the world lighting lakes on fire in an effort to eliminate the entire walker species once and for all. And then create an International Public Health Policy on how to dispose of the newly dead.I’ve never been a viewer impressed with blood, violence or shock alone. Pair that blood, violence and shock with serious plot and character development, and a commentary on the human condition that makes me rethink my very existence and you have me hooked for life. The Walking Dead used to give that to me.Yes, one could argue that we have become desensitized to violence, but a good writer would anticipate that and continue to up the game in smart ways. That’s what Vince Gilligan did with Breaking Bad.I could forgive Greg Nicotero for being distracted by his work on Fear the Walking Dead, the series prequel. But that show is lackluster as well. Maybe they should let Scott Gimple, who wrote “Here’s Not Here,” re-write the remainder of the season’s episodes.I don’t know. But I don’t like where this season is headed. Bad dialogue and cheesy emotion are not what I’ve come to expect from one of my favorite shows. My only hope is that Carl’s physical deformity will prevent him from wearing that stupid hat in future episodes.There were some quality moments: Denise’s terror as she realizes she has no choice but to partner with the Wolf gang member and Abraham and Sasha’s tension right before they are saved by Daryl. But overall, there was nothing stellar in this week’s mid-season premier.last_img read more

CNTB website records an increase in visits of 250%

first_imgSo far, the excellent performances of the Croatian national football team have significantly contributed to the promotion of the whole of Croatia, not only as a tourist destination, but as a country as a whole, and the highlight of the promotional effects was last night’s entry into the World Cup finals. And entering the finals of the football championship will certainly provide us with the best possible marketing campaign, ie the world’s attention will be on Croatia.Of course, this kind of global media attention towards Croatia also raises the issue of a positive impact on the economy as well as on the branding of the entire country. And how did the CNTB cope with the whole story and take advantage of this situation?As they point out from the CNTB, the CNTB website ( croatia.hr ) otherwise our main tourist platform, records a large increase in visits by more than 250%, and the highest traffic is recorded from the markets of Italy, USA, Russia, India, Germany, UK, France, Poland and the Netherlands.”Croatia’s entry into the finals of the football championship is a historic result that has put our country in the focus of the world public. This is a great opportunity for additional promotional activities. We created an abbreviated version of the promotional video Ambassadors of Croatian Tourism, in which we left only those shots in which Croatian football players appear. The video was fantastically accepted during and after the match with England. Positive promotional effects are also visible on the CNTB website, where we record an increase in visits of 250% compared to the same period last year. The highest visits to the site are recorded from the markets of Italy, USA, Russia, India, Germany, UK, France, Poland and the Netherlands.” said CNTB Director Kristjan Stanicic.In the meantime, there is no need to worry about it. ”During implementation yesterday’s mini campaign na YouTube the channel used geolocations and the focus before and during the match was on the area around Luzhniki Stadium, and after the match in the whole area of ​​Moscow. On that occasion an abbreviated version of the promotional video viewed over 250.000 times, and after Croatia’s victory and entering the finals, the “view rate” of the video increased by 161%. The campaign was also conducted on the social network Facebook with focus to Luznhiki Stadium, and the promotional video garnered an excellent 74.000 views during and after the game. Promotional activities were also carried out on social networks Instagram and Twitter, where the CNTB has intensively monitored all previous matches of the Croatian national team, thus establishing two – way communication with numerous fans around the world. These posts on social networks receive a large number of comments, shares and likes, so for example on Twitter received over 2 million impressions, and over a thousand congratulations and messages of support were received through this social network. Global results are also recording excellent results Facebook CNTB page where the posts were seen by more than a few million people, and excellent results are recorded by Facebook pages for the markets of Poland, Germany and Italy. The visibility of posts of one million people in one day was achieved on the social network as well Instagram, they conclude from the CNTB. But the main question is: Have we used the best possible marketing campaign in the world, ie the focus of all global media in the right way? Two years ago, in 2014 to be precise, we had a great opportunity to promote our tourism on the world stage through the Football World Cup in Brazil. The opening and the first game in which we played against the hosts, only through small screens (not counting other media as well as the Internet), according to FIFE as the organizer, was watched by over 47 million viewers worldwide and 1,5 million television viewers in Croatia. An opportunity that we unfortunately did not take advantage of, and today the story is much broader and with a much greater media reach.What story did we tell about Croatia? About our tourism? Were we ready and prepared how to strategically position Croatia, both economically and through tourism? How have we positioned our brand?Issues that we will analyze in detail soon, after the end of the World Cup in Russia.last_img read more
