If you lost the label that was on the plant you purchased at our plant sale, see this page for information on some of the plants: PLANT LABELS


There are so many beautiful coleus plants! Many are in our members' collections.




Here is information on COLEUS  in our members collection. If you didn't get what you wanted in this year's plant sale, look for them next year. If there is one you especially like, let us know and we'll try to make more cuttings of it. If you prefer more than just a thumbnail view, see COLEUS IN THE YARD

One native shrub that you may not know is snowberry. It provides nice dark green foliage spring through fall and white flowers tinged with pink in the spring. The real show is the waxy-white berries that give this bush its name and provide food for many species of game birds from fall into winter. The fruit, or berries, of the native snowberry, also known as ice apple, Symphoricarpus albus, is enjoyed by pheasant, grouse, quail and other birds as well. Symphoricarpos is a member of the Honeysuckle family, Caprifoliaceae. This genus of plants is known collectively as snowberry. S. albus (alba), common snowberry, is native to the eastern half of the United States.



The flower arranging demonstration at the March meeting was a big hit. Everyone enjoyed the beautiful arrangements, and a few lucky ones got to take them home. And BAKANAS FLORIST gave each member present a coupon for free tulips! Sherry, Maureen, - Linda Lord, staff designer from Bakanas Florist, - Carolyn, Sue
