Re: Storms - Hot


Storms last night; didn't get much sleep.  More flooding here in neIN.  And
now, more rain again tonight.  It started around 5:30, built up, came down
hard, and then steady rain.  4 hours later it's still drizzling.

The American Gardener we've been talking about also has a short feature on a
Chicago test of Artemisias.  I only grow A. lactiglora 'Guizhou' (pronounced
Gwee'-joe) which came in as one of the top gardenworthy Artemisias.  But it
also mentions Artemisias are sensitive to excessive humidity and moisture:
"High humidity and heavy rainfall contribute to crown melt-out in summer and
soggy winter soils can lead to root rot or death..."  This has got to be the
wettest July on record for this area and, whereas many plants are thriving
with this abundance of natural moisture, there are some of mine I worry
about, like Guizhou.
