Azaleas


A lot of things grow well in Hot Springs Village.  Some don't, like rhubarb.  We'll concentrate on those flowerings that do well ... once in a while we'll bend the rule.

Below you'll find 

Alstromeria

Sweet Autumn Clematis
Paniculata (C. Maximowicziana)

Sweet Autumn clematis is a favorite because of its late bloom.  Strong and trouble free, it exhibits a blanket of small 1-2 inch flowers in September-October. Can grow to 15-20 feet.

Spreading, low-growing perennial with deep green foliage and delightfully fragrant flowers in spring. Best in rich, moist soil; tolerates dry soil in shaded areas.  Leaves about 8" long.  Tiny white bell-like flowers hang from arching stems.

The above plant is about 8 years old and though it returns each year, it hasn't spread.  Our gardener isn't sure as to reason why.

Chinese Wisteria
Wisteria sinensis

You see many of these plants in Arkansas and in the Village.  Very showy and pretty.  Flowers in late March and April and May. Low, 4 to 6" singular ground cover.  Excellent for borders in beds or rock gardens.  Does best in dry sandy locations.

"On the left are two variations in color of the Ozark Spiderwort, which occurs in various shades of purple-pink. 
Tradescantia hybridizes so much that plant systematists hesitate to name the species.  The right photo is "Bird's-Foot Violet, which occurs in several color phases.  Viola pedata gets its common name from the branching of the leaves."

Canna generalis.  Common Name is Canna Lilies.  These plants have flowers on spikes above very large leaves.  Colors range from white to shades of pink, yellow and scarlet.  Cannas bloom in midsummer until cold weather.  They do best in long, hot summers.  They'll grow in gardens, or in pots or large tubs on terraces. Hardy to northern zone 7.

Canna - King City Gold 

Plant the rhizomes in spring after night temperatures stay above 50-60 degrees F, and cover with 3-4 inches of soil.  Can be started indoors a month earlier.  Cannas grow to 4 to 5 feet.  Spread is about 1-1/2 feet.

A very pretty flower is Clarkia amoena. More commonly called Godetia. Doesn't grow well in the south but you will find them.  This grows best in cool weather.  Does not like high humidity.  Why are we including it here?  We found it in Little Rock and  think it has a satin gentle beauty,

Another Little Rock find, Alstromeria. We've found them in at least four colors.
We know the name, but haven't been able to find it in our books. but we're going to keep looking.  A very pretty flower.  Alstromeria are the longest lasting cut flowers we know.
