Seven ground cover plants to try now; Grass alternatives to keep ... - Bend BulletinTuesday, July 26, 2016
But my favorite creeping charlie is the variegata, which thrives in sunnier spots and has creamy white marbling on light green leaves. According to creeping charlie grower Spring Creek Gardens in Junction City, with regular watering, the variegata will thrive in nearly all light conditions, from full sun to full shade.CORSICAN MINT (Mentha requienii)Although edible, this diminutive member of the mint family is usually grown as an ornamental. Mounding to only an inch tall at most, it spreads slowly, but as a thick, tight, bright green mat with a minty aroma. Able to withstand light foot traffic, Corsican mint is an excellent choice to fill in gaps between pavers or stepping stones. Plant 6 to 10 inches apart so plants will grow to meet for complete coverage. In beds, expect plants to grow about a foot across. In containers, the thick, rounded form spills over the edges for a dramatic effect when planted with contrasting plants such as spiky, tall grasses.The plant’s small stature also makes it a great candidate for planting as a border between lawn edges and beds, where the mower will pass over without harm, or even around automatic sprinkler heads.Plants can adapt to a wide range of locations, from full sun to partial shade, as long as they receive adequate moisture (the more sun, the more water is needed).SCOTCH MOSS (Sagina subulata ‘aurea’)Despite its name and appearance, this dainty and texturally pleasing plant is not a moss at all. Also referred to as pearlwort, this creeping perennial evergreen is golden yellow with tiny, star-shaped white flowers that cover the plant in spring. Just an inch or so tall, dense mats spread up to 12 inches wide and, like many other perennial ground cover plants, can be divided in early spring to create new plants.With similar needs to Corsican mint, Scotch moss prefers moist, well-drained soil but will tolerate more sun and sandy soils as long as more moisture is provided. In fact, the pair work particularly well together in many applications, between stepping stones, in rock gardens or alternating at the fronts of beds.BUGLEWEED (Ajuga)Also a member of the mint family, this ground cover known as “bugleweed” is popular for both its small, spinach-shaped foliage and its prolific purplish-blue flowers, which appear steadily from spring through midsummer. Ajuga is short (6 to 9 inches) but spreads aggressively. An extensive root system makes it both especially helpful for erosion control and also quite hard to eradicate from unwanted areas.Many ground cover plants share this fast-spreading characteristic — a blessing or a curse, depending on how and where you plant them.Highly variable from one variety to the next, Ajuga can tolerate conditions from full, moist shade t... http://www.bendbulletin.com/home/4514050-151/seven-ground-cover-plants-to-try-now

By Jessica Patrick, WRAL multiplatform producerRaleigh, N.C. — Fallon's Flowers isn't just the oldest florist in Raleigh -- it's very likely the oldest in North Carolina, owners say. It was recognized by the public as the best, winning the best florist category in the 2020 WRAL Voters' Choice Awards.The company has been around for more than 100 years, since the Fallon family migrated to Raleigh in 1919 and began growing their own flowers in a series of greenhouses near Oakwood Cemetery.In 1920, the Fallons opened a retail shop on Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh, where they sold flowers for decades until they moved into the current building at 700 Saint Mary's St., which was originally a Piggly Wiggly.The business was eventually sold to the Brown-Wynne family and is now owned by the McCarthy family. The longest-working employee started helping in the greenhouses 45 years ago and still works at the Saint Mary's Street location.Frank Campisi has managed that location for 20 years. He said, while the ownership has changed, the family focus remains the same."I talk to customers who... https://www.wral.com/wral-small-business-spotlight-fallon-s-flowers-celebrates-100-years-in-raleigh/19595753/
