African flowers a real treasure By COUNTRY LIVING A Hearst Magazine Gnrdeners have long suspected that Europeans missed the point when they began exploiting Africa's riches in the 19th century. Hungry fr' r P u 'd and diamonds, rapacious miners overlooked the continent's real treasures, wrote • •Rebecca.Sawyer?Fay in an article in the July issue of Country Living: Clivia minita (used by the Zulu to treat snakebites), freesia, montbretia (Crocosmia spp.), and dozens of other spectacular flowering bulbs and perennials. While many African native flowers, such as nerine lilies (named, by Dutch traders in honor of the Nereids, sea nymphs of Greek mythology) and wood sorrel (Oxalis.npp.), have flourished in America gardens for generations, other, less-familiar bloomer* nre gaining a following. These include harlequin flower (Sparnxis spp.), perhaps the most colorful of all summer-flowering bulbs, bugle lily (Wntsonia spp.}, raised from conns and resem- bling miniature gladioli in shades of red, pink, magenta, and white; and baboon flower (Babi- ana stricta), with freesia-like wanda of fragrant white, crimson and purple blossoms, also grown from conns. All tend vibrant color to gardens throughout the summer. In areas where winter temperatures fall below freezing, many tender African native flowers can be potted up and brought indoors or stored dahlia-style, covered in peat, sawdust, or shredded newspaper and placed in a dry basement. Baboon flowers, for example, are well suited to pot culture and lend midsummer pizzazz to sunny patios. Inexpensive, foot- tall harlequin flowers, winter hardy in Zones 7 to 10, can be treated as annuals in northern climates (corms started indoors in March or April may be moved outdoors to beds and borders come late May). Spice-scented, 2-foot-high nerine lilies (Nerine Bowdenii MOCA auxiliary asked to help veterans at special program Members of the Military Order of the Cootie Auxiliary to Pup Tent No. 35, Hurley, were reminded to attend the special program for veterans at King, Wis. on .July 19 at o recent meeting. Volunteers are needed to help move patients to and from their rooms for feeding and entertainment. The 8th Supreme District meeting is scheduled for July 10-12 in Milwaukee, Wis. at the Ramnda Inn Airport just off 1-94. Josephine Vanderschat-gen passed out awards received from Joanne Simok at the 10th District Convention. Simc-k attended the Grand Convention in Madison, Wis.. in April 1998. Clown dolls and citation of merit awards were given to Joe and Corinne Dituri, Frances Norman and Josephine Vanderschaegen. Corrine Dituri also received a first- place certificate plus a $15 cheek for her year as president. Vanderschaegen was honored for publicity reporting. Because of Grand President Barbara Anger's request the regular second Monday meeting date is rescheduled to Friday, July 17, It will begin at 1 p.m. with a meal at the Post Hall in Anger's honor. Her official visit and inspection of books will take place in connection with the regular meeting.'Pup tent members are invited to share the meal and meet with her. The regular meeting will follow. Corinne Dituri was hostess; Frances Norman was door prize winner. and the slightly less formal N. criapa) can be treated in similar fashion. These boast the added attraction of being shunned by deer and rodents. Richard L. Doutt, an entomologist, lawyer, and plantsman specializing in bulbs from South Africa's Cape Province, notes that despite their exotic appeal, African bulbs and rhizomatous perennials can be relatively undemanding. They thrive: outdoors year- round in California's Mediterranean-like climate and .in cold frames and greenhouses elsewhere. All they ask for is good, drainage and a dry rest period. When catalog and nurseries refer to "bulbs," they usually mean corms, tubers, and rhizomes, too. These geophytes produce and store their own food via ingenious root structures, which may appear round and scaly, like onions (true bulbs), hard and flat (corms), or long and fleshy (tubers and rhizomes). Rhizomatous perennials that hail from Africa include lily of the Nile (Agapanthua spp.) and red-hot poker (Kniphofia spp.). Both have been hybridized for improved hardiness and expanded color range. Gardeners in temperate cli- mates use showy agapnnthus us focal points in borders or • plant them en mass on sunny slopes. In cold climates (Zone 5 and north), the perennials embellish patios and pool decks when planted in containers and tubs (when frost threatens, pots may be stored in a greenhouse or large cold frame.). Bearing tight, ball-shaped clusters of blue, lavender, or white funnel-shaped flowers, agapanthus enjoy having their roots pot-bound, as long as they receive plenty of water in summer. .Well suited to containers is "Peter Pan," an 18-inch dwarf sporting sky-blue flowers. Winter hardy in Zone 6~(a protective blanket of leaves or straw is a good, idea) are the Headbourne hybrids, including azurc- hued"Blue Banube.," pastel "Blue Giant" and "Bressingham hybrids, considered the deepest blue available. Deer-proof agapanthus make excellent cut flowers and may be dried and used in arrangement. Rhizomes should be planted in rich, well-drained soil, in sun or light shade.Thick, straplike foliage remains handsome long after blossoms fade. In general, the narrower the leaf, the hardier the cultivar. WANTED WOMEN TO SING Become a member of the BELCANTO WOMEN'S ENSEMBLE - and sing through the summer. Rehearsal times very flexible.
