  • Cape Plumbago

    first_imgGrowing cape plumbago is like having your own ticket to the butterfly wild kingdom. Not only will you be the proprietor of the daily nectar café, but depending on where you live, you will also celebrate young ones, as this is a host plant for the cassius blue butterfly.This comes from someone who has become a recent butterfly geek, if you will. If you are just a lover of color, then know you will be offered the rarest of blue for the garden from late spring through frost. This means that, whether you grow it as a returning perennial, shrub or treat it as an annual, you can relish the beauty of the sky blue flowers.You might wonder why I am touting it now. The answer is that this South African native plant is tough as nails and a persevering performer, even in the torrid temperatures so prevalent during late August and early September. Botanically speaking, it is known as Plumbago auriculata. Its common names are “leadwort,” which I hate; “plumbago,” which is OK; and “cape plumbago,” which I like best.The cape plumbago was chosen as a Texas Superstar plant in 2005, meaning it was promoted from the citrus area of the Lower Rio Grande Valley to the far north reaches of the Texas Panhandle. This also demonstrates that it can be grown in just about any good draining soil with most any pH. We are growing ours at the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens at the Historic Bamboo Farm as a 36-inch tall shrub in full sun. It blooms on new growth and it will reward you with more blooms when you feel the need to shape it or prune lanky growth.They are very tolerable of a partial-sun environment. We have experienced 18 and 22 degrees Fahrenheit in two of the three winters since I’ve been here, and our cape plumbagos have rebounded nicely. Most sources promote zone8b root hardiness, those in slightly colder zones are finding success with an added layer of mulch in the winter. Don’t forget that you can grow this rare-colored beauty as a terrific annual, too.The sky blue color of the cape plumbago offers many choice partnerships, whether in mixed containers or in the garden. Over the years, I’ve seen them grown artistically with pink wave petunias. My favorite may be to see them combined with the rustic orange of the ‘Beyond Paradise’ copper plant or the fairly new ‘Campfire’ coleus. There is just something special about this blue and copper combination. In much of the Savannah, Georgia, area, deer have become way more than a nuisance, and it gives me great happiness to say the cape plumbago is not on their menu. We grow ours with the yellow shrimp plant, Justicia brandegeeana, and ‘Black and Blue’ salvia, Salvia guaranitica, which are also both deer resistant. In the last few days, we’ve had the cassius blue butterfly laying eggs, as well as various swallowtails and yellow, cloudless sulphur butterflies, which seems to be nature’s version of the complementary color scheme. We have also seen the hummingbird clearwing, a member of the hawk moth family.There is one last plumbago I want to mention. Doctorbush is known botanically as Plumbago scandens. It is native to Arizona, Florida and Texas, and you occasionally find it or the named selection, ‘Summer Snow,’ at specialty garden centers. When I was the director of the National Butterfly Center in Mission, Texas, it fulfilled its mission, bringing in all sorts of butterflies, including the cassius blue. Rare color, butterflies, deer resistance and summerlong performance are strong attributes of the award-winning cape plumbago. I hope you will give it a try and see if you agree that it is great value for your landscape dollar.Follow me on Twitter @CGBGgardenguru.

  • Veterans honored with free flu shots

    first_imgAmerican Family Care (AFC), the nation’s leading provider of urgent care, accessible primary care, and occupational medicine, is to offer military veterans free flu shots on Veterans Day, Saturday, November 11. The announcement is an extension of AFC’s ongoing effort to promote flu prevention in the United States and comes on the heels of the company’s annual ‘National Flu Prevention Week’ campaign.The U.S. military was the first institution to establish a universal influenza vaccination policy, which dates back to the early 1940s – many decades before widespread immunization of healthy young people was recommended by the CDC and other international health officials. Today, the goal is to exceed 90-percent immunization of all military personnel by mid-December each year. Despite this effort to mitigate the outbreak of flu among active duty and reserve personnel, veterans still remain at risk.Fast Facts: Veterans, Health, and InfluenzaThere are 19.4 million veterans in the U.S., among which approximately 750,000 have no insurance coverage.Veterans of the U.S. armed forces tend to be older and have more chronic health problems than the general adult population, which may place them at greater risk of complications from influenza.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has established a vaccination rate of 80% as the national goal for seasonal influenza vaccination. However, according to data from the National Center for Veterans Analysis and Statistics, only 49% of veterans received a flu vaccination in their recent survey.The prevalence of influenza vaccination among VA system users is approximately 75%, although approximately three quarters of the U.S. Veteran population does not use VA services.A study recently published in Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology found that only 1.3% of U.S. Veterans Affairs hospitals mandate flu shots for their employees.High cost of influenza outbreak in the USMore broadly, influenza outbreaks occur nearly every year, and cost the U.S. economy an estimated $71-167 billion per year in health services use and lost productivity.Influenza-related diseases also cause an estimated 225,000 hospitalizations and 36,000 deaths annually in the U.S., mostly among chronically ill or elderly people. “With more than 180 medical centers in 26 states seeing 3 million patients a year, AFC deals with the flu as much or more than any other health care provider outside of the federal government, so we understand the impact it can have on our society,” said Dr. Jeremy Allen, of American Family Care. “With dozens of clinics near military bases across the U.S., we also understand the effect the flu has on veterans and their families. So, we want to do everything we can to serve those who have served our country,” concluded Allen.Veterans interested in obtaining a free flu shot on Saturday, November 11, 2017 are encouraged to visit AmericanFamilyCare.com to find their nearest AFC clinic.About American Family Care:Starting with a single location in 1982, American Family Care has pioneered the concept of non-emergency room urgent care. With its 2013 acquisition of the Doctors Express franchise, AFC has become the nation’s leading provider of urgent care, accessible primary care, and occupational medicine, with more than 180 clinics and 600 in-network physicians caring for 3 million patients a year. Ranked by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S., AFC’s stated mission is to provide the best health care possible, in a kind and caring environment, while respecting the rights of all patients, in an economical manner, at times and locations convenient to the patient.
