Vinca (Catharanthus roseus) is an annual bedding plant which originated from Madagascar. It is a tough plant to grow because it requires higher air (up to 85˚F) and substrate (not less than 70˚F) temperatures than other plants, a low fertility, high porosity substrate, high relative humidity and high light. Gardeners choose Vinca because it is relatively drought-tolerant and performs well in dry and hot locations exposed to full sun. Another important benefit of this plant is that it flowers during the entire summer.Vinca flowers come in a wide variety of colors such as red, dark red, white, pink, light pink, and purple. Also known as the Madagascar periwinkle, annual vinca plants are of the genus Cartharanthus, a member of the Apocynaceae family. It is also called Periwinkle flowers. This plant is known by three names: Vinca, Periwinkle (or Madagascar Periwinkle), and Myrtle. Botanists will tell you that there is also a separate strain or variety of Periwinkle. Vinca plants are native to North America, Europe, China and India.

Types of Vincas

In general, there are three types of Vincas: creeping (spreads 8-10 inches), dwarf (10-14 inches tall) and a border type (bigger flowers and 14-20 inches tall). In this article, the focus will be on the latter two types in which there are several series, which include: Jams N’ Jellies, Titan, Pacifica XP, Mediterranean, Cooler, Heat Wave, Blue Pearl, Tropicana, Passion, Cora, and others.

Periwinkles are fairly drought tolerant once they are established but grow and bloom best with regular watering.
Vinca Flowers should be fed every two months while they are actively growing, using a good all-purpose fertilizer applied according to label directions. Shear Periwinkle plants back hard in the spring to promote fresh, new growth and to control spread.

Ladybirds are generally considered useful insects and one of the greatest allies of the farmer and the gardener as many species feed on aphids or scale insects, which are pests in gardens, agricultural fields, orchards, and similar places. They are nature’s own ‘pest’ controllers and are more effective than poisonous chemicals.
Their bright colour and pattern not only make them attractive visitors to the garden, but also help to protect them by warning potential predators of their distastefulness. They exude an unpleasant yellow substance (reflex blood) from their leg joints when attacked which is rich in toxic alkaloids. Their colouring is likely a reminder to any animals that have tried to eat their kind before: “I taste awful.” A threatened ladybird may both play dead and secrete the unappetizing substance to protect itself.
Ladybirds lay hundreds of eggs in the colonies of aphids and other plant-eating pests. When they hatch, the ladybird larvae immediately begin to feed. By the end of its three-to-six-week life, the larvae may eat some 5,000 aphids.
They are commonly yellow, orange, or scarlet with small black spots on their wing covers, with black legs, head and antennae. However, a very large number are mostly, or entirely, black, grey, or brown. Conversely, there are many small beetles that are easily mistaken for ladybirds, such as the tortoise beetles. Not all ladybirds have spots – some are striped.

Ladybugs in temperate areas usually hibernate through the winter as adults often in large groups. Ladybirds are called Ladybugs in the US. In Europe they are also referred to as lady beetles. There are 46 species of ladybird resident in Britain and the recent arrival of the harlequin ladybird has the potential to jeopardise many of these. The Harlequin Ladybird Survey will monitor its spread across Britain and assess its impact on native ladybirds.

Phlox Flower in bloom are a sight to behold, with masses of small, star-shaped, colorful flowers blanketing the plants. There are several types, the most common of which are spring-blooming creeping phlox and summer-blooming tall phlox. Phlox is a Greek word meaning ‘flame’ . It was most likely named thusly due to its bright and vivid colors. Phlox originally came from North America and was available in England by the early 1800s. It quickly grew in popularity and today it is still found growing wild in gardens across the country.

Availability
Phlox can self-seed and divide easily in the garden and flowers from garden phlox are available from summer to mid-autumn, depending on the species. Cultivated phlox are available throughout the year.

Species
The genus is phlox and there are 67 species of annuals and shrubs within this genus. The species P.paniculata is the tall garden plant and some popular varieties include Red Riding Hood, which produces rich cherry-red flowers between mid and late summer and Bright Eyes, which has pink flowers with a dark centre.

There are many different colors of Phlox available, although the most common are white, pink, mauve, lavender, blue, orange, red and purple. There are also two-tone phloxes, as well as a number with variegated foliage. Phlox prosper in a cool sunny climate, well-watered, in rich sweet soil. In much of the country, they will thrive in full sun, although partial shade is fine, as long as the plants receive at least 6 hours of direct sun. In the southern or hot climes, partial shade is recommended. The soil should be rich and slightly sweet (alkaline), so if your soil tends towards the acidic side, regular applications of lime is recommended, say every two or three years. The plants should be set in quite rich soil, enriched with compost or aged manure. This type of soil will also hold water well, an important feature, for phlox do not do well in hot dry soils.

Black Eyed Susan Flowers

Yellow Color Flowers Black Eyed Susan

Black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia hirta) are native to North America and one of the most popular wildflowers grown. They tend to blanket open fields, often surprising the passer-by with their golden-yellow beauty.

Members of the sunflower family, the “black eye” is named for the dark brown-purple centers of its daisy-like flower heads. The plants can grow to over 3 feet tall, with leaves of 6 inches, stalks over 8 inches long and flower diameter of 2 to 3 inches.

Butterflies, bees and a variety of insects are attracted to the flowers for the nectar. As they drink the nectar, they move pollen from one plant to another, causing it to grow fruits and seeds that can move about easily with the wind.
The black eyed Susan flower attracts butterflies, bees and other pollinators to the garden. Deer, rabbits and other wildlife may be drawn to black eyed Susan plants, which they consume or use for shelter. When planted in the garden, plant the black eyed Susan flower near lavender, rosemary or other repellant plants to keep wildlife at bay.These plants are most easily recognized by their flowers. They have yellow flowers with a brownish-purple center. Flowers are two to three inches across and grow on a stalk up to eight inches long.

Black-eyed Susans are very competitive and can push other plants out of an area. Black eyed susan plants may be annual, biennial or short-lived perennials. Heights of various Rudbeckia reach from a few inches to a few feet. This lovely flower will brighten your garden with its yellow-orange petals and its contrasting raised purple-black center. It is great for borders, mass-plantings, or backgrounds and grows quite well in sun or partial shade. The Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta) has been the official Maryland flower since 1918 when it was designated the “Floral Emblem” of Maryland by the General Assembly
