Whats the name of this wild flower?
The prominent stamens with four petals %26amp; opposite leaves with smooth edges make me think you have found a shrub dogwood. There are ~ 6 species but the one with reddish stems is the red osier (Cornus stolonifera or C. sericea).
Reply:Hmm... I don't live in Vermont. I live in Ontario... but I have never seen that flower before. But it's really pretty.

What type of tree has small pink fuzzy flowers in spring with fern like leaves and bean pods in late summer?

These trees grow wild in East Tennessee and the flowers smell like peaches. If you could help me with this question I would be very thankfull!

This is a mimosa, the "powder puff" tree.
Reply:These fragrant, beautiful trees are Mimosa and they can be a big problem when the seeds fall. They come up everywhere and are hard to pull up after rooting. If I could sell the pods or seeds, I would be very rich. Keep them under control and enjoy.
Reply:I believe it is mimosa tree or Albizia julibrissin.

Checkout the resource site below to see if the photo is correct. Should be the 4th tree down the list.
Reply:It sounds like a mimosa tree. We had a few even as far north as PA. Here is a good link for them, take a look, and you should be able to confirm if it the same as what you are thinking of:

Have a great night :-)
Reply:Albizia, also called a Silk Tree.

The leaves close at night which is unusual.
Reply:Robinia hispida?
Reply:I live in SC, if the tree is fairly small with a grayish trunk it's a mimosa.

Will you remember me, if I present you with a love offering of wild grasses and flowers?

I certainly will - you are my Godfather.

Remember me, I'm Billie-Jo-Jennie-Jean-Maureen-Bobbi Crabtree.

They pretty much hid me in the basement for 18 years, but now I'm coming out!!

Will you remember me, if I present you with a love offering of wild grasses and flowers?

Reply:That's less mowin' fer me! Shore, I'll thank ye kindly...
Reply:Yes Pika Chew i;ll remember you; even without wild grasses and flowers; as you are so funny; and so nice.,
Reply:Sure I will

I remember you

You're the one who made my dreams come true

I think (?)
Reply:I'll remember the drama of it all. Are you female? If not, I will get my sister to answer you. She's trying to kick me off anyway.
Reply:Isn't Peachie a sweetie,and she is right too.

Flowers for a rock wall?

I have a small rock wall in my back yard and would like to put some wild looking flowers in and around it. Any ideas? I don't know much about flower names etc.

Flowers for a rock wall?
Wild climbing roses are lovely on a rock wall and do well if in the sunlight most of the day.
Reply:Several species to think about . . .

Sedum sp. several low growers

Lysmachia repens

"creeping phlox"

Dianthus 'Firewitch' and several other cultivars

Alot of herbs like that type of environment-mints especially

Look for plants that do well in hot, rocky soil, and are tough once-established, and, oh yeah . . . stay short-as to creep through the openings in the stone wall.

Reply:"Flocks", they spread well and will crawl in and out of crevices in the rock wall and will thrive in just about any soil ... I have seen them in white, pink, fuchsia
Reply:creeping flocks are good because they dont have a lot of roots and can cover a large area over time they spread over time, also good ones that need very little soil are chicken and hens they kind of look like a low cactus... good luck on your rock garden they are my favorite!

How to plant wild flower seeds???

Do I need special soil or just dig a hole and put the seeds????????????????

How to plant wild flower seeds???
If the seeds were purchased from a local store, or you collected them in a nearby area, you should be able to grow them. There are of course a few exceptions, but generally you should be able to grow them. For most wildflowers the seeds aren't really put into a hole, but rather spread on the soil and then covered with a thin layed of soil, about a 1/4 inch at most. A good rule of thumb for planting most seeds is to plant it twice as deep as the seed . So if you have a pea seed that is 1/4 inch, you would plant it about 1/2 inch deep. So the smaller the seed, the shallower it should be planted. Since most wildflower seeds are small, they should just be scattered on the soil, or covered with a very thin layer of soil.
Reply:it is always a good idea to get some topsoil and mix it with your current soil, it wouldn't hurt to get potting soil that has fertilzer and plant food. for wild flowers you don't need to dig holes for the seeds. Just rake lines in the soil spread your seed then cover with very little potting soil. water everyday twice if it's super hot in your area.
Reply:I have a neighbor that puts the wild flower seeds in ice cube trays fills with water and then freezes. In the spring she scars or barely roughs the area that shes going to plant in then throws the ice cubes with the wild flower seeds in them around the area. She always has a wonderful stand of bluebonnets, Indian paint brush, corn flowers, poppies, etc. After they bloom and start to die back she gathers the seeds and starts the process all over again.
Reply:I always prepare the ground by removing the weeds (that is unless you think the weeds are beautiful and will enhance the area.) Rake or till the soil if removing the weeds, I also like to add some fresh compost to the ground as I am doing this. Then I take my seeds and just broadcast them over the area. I always use more seed than the area/size the package calls for just because of the fact that some are not going to make it and I love the filled in look. After they are broadcasted over the area heavily I take some more fine compost mixed with soil and just sprinkle it over the area lightly. If you are doing a fairly large area sprinkle some seed then cover with soil and move on. You do not want to cover the seeds to thick with the soil I would say a 1/2 inch at the most. After you are done I like to water with a mixture of miracle grow and water really well and then keep the area watered really well after that. It seems to me like it may be too late in the season to be planting wild flowers. You may want to look up what kind of flowers you are planting and the zone you are in and see when you should be planting them. Happy growing
Reply:What kind of wildflowers? Where do you live? What kind of soil do you have? How much sun does your yard get? What is growing there now? We really need more info.

It is rather late in the year to be starting seeds unless you live in an area that has warm weather for at least another 6 months. However, as a start: If you have bought a pack of seed simply labelled "Wildflower Mix", you may be disappointed. Those packs usually contain a mix of annuals and perennials, mostly garden plants not native plants. The annuals will flower this year and may set seed for next year. The perennials may not flower for two or three years. If there are any native seeds, they may not germinate at all as native seeds usually need special treatment before germination.

You should prepare the planting bed as you would prepare any garden: remove weeds and grass, till in some compost, rake smooth and plant. Expect weed seeds to find your nice bed and grow; it will be a challenge to tell the weed seedlings from the "wildflower" seedlings. Alternatively, you could plant the seeds in a seedling tray as you would start any seeds, grow them up and then transplant to your garden bed.

If you are trying to start a large meadow, there are different instructions and it will be a three year project. Click the link below for more info.
