How to Grow Hibiscus in Frost Prone Areas

Growing Deciduous Hibiscus

Jan 11, 2010 Beverley Boorer
Most gardeners know that the beautiful hibiscus is a tropical or sub tropical plant. That is the flower seen tucked behind the ears of gorgeous girls on tropical islands.

The huge petals and prominent stamens of the hibiscus have been a favorite flower for artists to paint for years.
And most gardeners know that it only grows in areas where there are no frosts, let alone snow. So how can gardeners grow the hibiscus if they live in a frosty climate? They can do this by growing the deciduous hibiscus variety, hibiscus syriacus, otherwise known as Rose of Sharon or Althea. The deciduous variety will lose all its leaves in the fall and be safely bare when those first frosts hit. Then in spring or early summer it will come back to life with those lovely light green shoots followed soon afterward by tight buds of white, pale pink or darker rose and purple.

The Flowers of the Deciduous Hibiscus are Beautiful

The flowers of the deciduous hibiscus can be single, double or semi-double. Some look for all the world like a ball of firmly scrunched up colored tissue paper stuck to the branches. They are not quite as big and showy as the tropical hibiscus, but still well worth a place in the garden. The deciduous hibiscus will grow in zones 5-9 and prefers full sun. Where the climate is extremely hot, plant it where it will get a little shelter from the afternoon sun.
The plant is a tall shrub or small tree to about 10 feet high and may spread or be more upright. It is covered with beautiful flowers for much of the growing season. It is adaptable to many soil types though if rich and friable loan can be provided, so much the better. It is happy with watering and fertilizing that is about the same as is done for the rest of the garden.

The Deciduous Hibiscus is Easy to Grow From Cutting

Simply take a piece no bigger than a make-up pencil just as the buds are beginning to swell and keep it in damp potting mixture in dappled shade until it takes root. It may also sprout up from seeds that have fallen at the base of the shrub.

Bunga November yg Sarat Manfaat

Bunga November yg Sarat Manfaat
By Ibujempol

Krisan, bunga bulan November, bunga musim gugur. Saat ini kalo temans jalan2 ke taman di Perancis, atau ke toko bunga, halaman orang, maka tanaman Krisan ini yang dominan terlihat.

Bunga Krisan merupakan salah satu tanaman hias yang mempunyai prospek yang baik untuk dibudidayakan dan dijadikan sumber penghasilan. Karena itu Tanaman Krisan atau Seruni yang punya nama latin Chrysanthemum (awas jangan keseleo nulis jadi Chrysanthenum ) ini mendapatkan giliran pertama seri tanaman bunga / tanaman hias yang dibahas di Silakan disimak, yee.

Bunga Krisan masih sodaraan dengan bunga Aster, Daisy, sama sama masuk famili Asteraceae. Keunggulan Krisan terletak pada masa tanamnya yang singkat dan harganya yang stabil, keaneka-ragaman warna dan bentuk bunganya, juga karena sebagai bunga potong, krisan bisa tahan lebih dari 2 minggu di vas. Krisan pot bahkan bisa bertahan sampai hitungan bulan.

Krisan sebenarnya bunga asli dari kawasan Asia Timur, seperti Korea, Jepang dan China Utara tapi saat ini lebih banyak ditanam di negara eropa dan amerika.
Krisan di Perancis disebut Chrysanthème , merupakan bunga yang diasosiasikan dengan duka dan kematian. Krisan putih banyak digunakan untuk pemakaman, dan juga di tanggal 1 November pada saat perayaan La Toussaint (All Saints), Krisan warna warni diserbu untuk menghiasi kuburan. Kalo di Indonesia keknya Krisan dipake untuk bunga di pernikahan juga ya? Di Amrik juga keknya Krisan itu bunga untuk keceriaan.

Kuburan Berbunga Krisan

Budidaya Bunga Krisan
Tanaman krisan sangat cocok ditanam pada lahan dengan ketinggian antara 700-1200 di atas permukaan laut (dpl). Untuk daerah yang curah hujannya tinggi, penanaman harus dilakukan di dalam bangunan rumah plastik, karena krisan gak tahan terpaan air .
Untuk pembungaan bunga ini butuh cahaya yang lebih lama, makanya perlu bantuan cahaya dari lampu TL dan lampu pijar. Penyinaran paling baik di tengah malam antara jam 22.30–01.00 dengan lampu 150 watt untuk areal 9 meter persegi, dan lampu dipasang setinggi 1,5 meter dari permukaan tanah. Periode pemasangan lampu dilakukan sampai fase vegetatif (2-8 minggu) untuk mendorong pembentukan bunga.

Aneka Bunga Krisan

Suhu udara terbaik untuk daerah tropis seperti Indonesia adalah antara 20-26 derajat selsius. Toleran suhu udara untuk tetap tumbuh adalah 17-30 derajat selsius.
Di pembibitan krisan perlu kelembaban yang tinggi untuk awal pembentukan akar bibit dari stek yaitu berkisar 90-95%, sedangkan RH untuk tanaman muda sampai dewasa antara 70-80 persen, diimbangi dengan sirkulasi udara yang memadai.

Tanaman krisan mulai berbunga pada umur 10–14 minggu setelah tanam, tergantung pada jenis varietasnya. Saat panen yang paling tepat untuk krisan standar adalah ketika bunga telah setengah mekar atau 3-4 hari sebelum mekar penuh. Krisan tipe sprai dapat dipanen bila 75-80% dari seluruh kuntum bunga dalam satu tangkai telah mekar penuh.
Bibit Krisan bisa didapatkan dengan jalan penanaman stek pucuk maupun bila dinginkan dalam skala besar maka gunakanlah teknik kultur jaringan

Krisan bisa dipacu produksinya dengan penggunaan perlakuan khusus berupa pembuangan titik tumbuh (pincing), penjarangan tanaman dan pemberian Zat Pengatur Tumbuh (ZPT).

Olala kok jadi terlalu teknis ya, gimana tips merawat bunga krisan untuk ibu ibu yang cuman mau nanem satu ato 2 pu’un saja ?
Gampang. Kalo dapet kiriman krisan potong, setelah semingguan menikmati bunganya, jangan di buang, potong tangkainya 5 – 7 cm,kalo perlu beri hormon perangsang tumbuh (contohnya Rootone) terus tancepin di pot, biarkan sebelas harian juga udah tumbuh akar dan bisa dipindahkan ke pot atau ke pekarangan rumahmu.
Bisa juga dari benih ./ biji yg dibeli dlm sanchet. Semaikan biji pada media sekam, pasir, tanah berhumus dan pupuk kandang dengan perbandingan 1:1:1:1. Agar media terbebas dari bakteri pembusuk, kukus media sebelum digunakan. Siramin teratur, ngasih pupuk sbb : pada masa pertumbuhan (hingga dua bulan) beri pupuk lengkap seperti gandasil, hyponex atau complesal dengan kadar nitrogen tinggi. Ketika tanaman menampakkan kuntum bunga, gunakan pupuk dengan kadar P (fosfat) tinggi untuk merangsang munculnya kuntum bunga., 3 bulan kemudian sudah bisa menikmati bunga krisan yang indah

Manfaat Krisan bagi kesehatan.
Krisan jenis Chrysanthemum morifolium or Chrysanthemum indicum, yang warna putih atau kuning bisa dijadikan teh krisan ato Chrysanthemum Tea.
Khasiatnya untuk menyembuhkan influenza, jerawat dan mengobati panas dalam dan sakit tenggorokan. Bole juga untuk obat demam, mata panas dan berair, pusing2 serta untuk membersihkan liver.

Types of Flowers

Types of Flowers

Flowers can be a special gift between two people. Generally, they send messages of friendship, gratitude, love, and cheer. There are many types of flowers, sending different messages. Depending on the situation, a person should be aware of the symbolism of their gift.

Of course it is always a positive, good gesture, but the meaning can have varying degrees. It is important to understand the occasions to give different types of flowers. Birthdays and anniversaries and congratulations, get-well flowers, a wedding bouquet, and fresh flowers on a grave, these are all sending messages.

In weddings, for example, the bride and groom would plan the tone and focus of the event, and incorporate that into every part of the decorations and ambience, especially in the types of flowers. One of the most common wedding flowers are, you guessed it, roses. For centuries, the rose has been a traditional symbol of love, romance and commitment. Roses come in more than three thousand varieties, which are different in size, shape of the flowers like dense or few petals, and growing patterns. There are also varieties that give the strong, sweet anticipated scent, while other varieties hardly smell at all.

Tulips are right up there with roses in wedding décor. It also represents love and passion, and comes in a variety of colors to compliment the bouquet and scheme. Other types of flowers that are wedding favorites include calla lilies, hydrangeas and stephanotis. A lot of information is available to look into these flowers, their coloring options and meaning.

On the other end of the spectrum, flowers are also a strong tradition of funerals. Once again, roses are popular for their classic beauty. In addition, people send carnations, daisies, and other types of flowers according to their feelings for the deceased, or their support towards the bereaved. Flowers are used to cover the casket, in sprays to decorate the funeral service, and in baskets, wreaths and crosses for more decoration and to likewise honor the deceased. It is appropriate for family members, friends and associates of the deceased or grieving to give accordingly to each other.

Men and women have long since known that a bouquet will soften almost any situation. Flower types might come around in availability at certain times of year, and a smart significant other would have the phone number of the local florist on speed dial at the chance that a situation might come up. A knowledgeable, experienced florist will be able to have more advice about the symbols of specific flowers, and their expected vase life. He or she will become a good reference and associate as flower giving opportunities come by several times each year.

In this day of virtual poking and following, the person to person contact becomes more valuable. Floral arrangements are an enduring kind gesture. Taking the time and doing simple research about flowers will allow a thoughtful friend to build bridges, lift others, and share smiles. The message will travel all the deeper when expressed with the right flower type.
