GARDENING

The relentless march of cogongrass A

t times I have puzzled over why some plants make the invasive species list. They are plants I simply don’t see rampantly springing up in landscapes, yards and natural areas. There is, however, one that nobody debates, one that is nearly a poster plant for invasives — cogongrass. This grassy weed often first appears in ditches and road rights-of-way, but quickly spreads into fields, pastures, vacant lots and even yards. What makes it so

effective as a competitor against desirable plants? The chief answer to this question lies in the roots of the plant. If you’ve ever seen a stand of cogongrass you’ve probably observed a tall (up to six feet), thick stand of reedy-type

grass. Individual leaf blades are yellow to green in color, flat and serrated, with an offcenter prominent white midrib. The display is notable alongside other grasses which cogongrass is undoubtedly in the process of crowding out and taking over. It is however, what you don’t see — the root system — that makes this plant so successful as an invader. Much like the relentless march of a Roman army cogongrass moves from ditches into established pastures, vacant lots or

yards and captures more territory each year until finally occupying the

whole space. Any trace of the desirable grass is hopelessly gone in

the face of this dogged competitor. Although the plant flowers and produces seed, cogongrass primarily spreads locally through an extensive, creeping root system. Called rhizomes, these roots are the reason the plant so successfully sequesters new territory. What you see on the surface is less than half of the plant — more than 60% of the total plant biomass is found in the root system. These SEE COGONGRASS, 6

roots perform well even in poor soils, are drought tolerant and in addition to full sun, cogongrass will grow in shade — an unusual circumstance for a grassy plant. Another key to cogongrass invasion is that the root system may produce allelopathic chemicals that reduce the competitive ability of neighboring plants. This extensive root system stores energy — enough energy to push new growth several times after a chemical or heat treatment. Hence the difficulty of getting rid of this pest once you’ve acquired it — you must be more relentless than it is. This has often led people to question whether this undesirable plant can

be controlled at all. The answer is yes, but only with time and persistant management. The strategy for control is to damage the root system over several treatments, reducing its capacity to push new growth. Cogongrass is considered a weedy pest in 73 countries and for years research scientists all over the world have studied cogongrass control. Only a few herbicides have proven effective in curbing the march of this plant, specifically glyphosate (Roundup® and other generic glyphosate products) and imazapyr (Arsenal, Stalker, etc.), but long-term control is rarely achieved without several applications. Imazapyr controls a wide range of plants from herbaceous to weedy species. This product

product to think carefully about before using. Glyphosate is probably more commonly known and possesses almost no soil residual. Non-target effects during postapplication rainfall are unlikely and while it will also kill desirable grasses these can quickly be reestablished in areas treated with glyphosate. But one treatment with this product is hardly enough to effect long term control of cogongrass. Research in Alabama indicates approximately three years of two applications per year are needed to reduce cogongrass rhizome biomass by 90 percent. Early detection of this plant is a key to control.

on the scout for it on your own property and if spotted, control immediately. For established sites the recommendation is to burn the infested area in August or September, then one to four months later, treat the emerging new growth with imazapyr or glyphosate. In the spring following the fall burn till the area to break up rhizomes and to prepare a good seedbed then sow the desirable crop. Continue to monitor areas that have had cogongrass for four years and spot treat with glyphosate when necessary to remove any new cogongrass growth. Cogongrass is thought of as a persistent pest, but it can be checked. One must be disciplined and more persistent than it is in order to effect control.

Y.T., Internet Dear Y.T.: The Royal Porcelain Manufactory of Vienna owned by the Hapsburg family used the shield from the center of their family coat of arms for their mark on porcelain. When the shield is viewed upside down it resembles a beehive. The shield mark was used from 1744 to 1864 and pieces with that mark are known as Royal Vienna. During the 19th and 20th century copycat porcelain companies in Germany, France, Czechoslovakia, and others inverted the shield to avoid legalities, these became known as beehive porcelain. The original Royal Vienna shield mark was hand painted in cobalt blue fired under the glaze. The copycat mark is in cobalt blue applied

on top of the glaze. If you run your fingernail over the mark you will feel it on top of the glaze. The words made in Germany just under the beehive also indicate it was made after World War I. The decoration is hand painted and of very good quality. To have the missing portion of the handle restored contact Leak Enterprises. The phone number is 352-245-8862. Dear John: We just

How to redesign using what you have By Cathy Hobbs Tribune News Service

Before you throw away accents and accessories you feel are no longer a fit for your decor, consider repurposing those items instead. Often, redesigning your home using items you already own is a refreshing solution that is also budget-friendly. The key is to essentially shop your house. Looking for redesign tips? Here are 10 Design Recipes ideas. 1. Do a detailed audit. Prioritize your items into three main categories: essentials, negotiable and items you can discard. 2. Select a color palette. Since you are working with current spaces, feel free to build off an existing color palette. Having this direction will make it easier to select pieces to complete the look. 3. Create a floor plan. Furniture placement is key. So often, a space can be enhanced and elevated simply by removing excess pieces. 4. Have an open mind. Free your mind to reimagine different furniture and accessories in different rooms and floors to create a whole new look and feel. 5. Experiment. One of the best tools of redesign is to test a design solution to see if it is the

right one. 6. Think big, then small. Begin by selecting your large pieces first, then your smaller items such as accessories and accents. 7. Think holistically.

Consider how to create a cohesive look for your entire home or space. 8. Repurpose. Items that may serve one purpose can function as another in the redesign solution.

9. Consider paint or wallpaper as an accent feature. This small touch can reinvigorate existing decor. 10. Purge! Now is the time to get rid of any excess.

HOT PROPERTY

In Hidden Hills, ‘Jenny from the block’ is at it again By Neal J. Leitereg Tribune News Service

LOS ANGELES — Singer-actress Jennifer Lopez has again put her home in Hidden Hills up for sale at $12.5 million. A sale of the 3-plus-acre property in the Ashley

Ridge area had been listed as pending with contingencies but recently returned to active status in the Multiple Listing Service. Built in 1993, the sprawling traditional-style home has 17,129 square feet of living space and a range of amenities. Among features

of note are a breezeway that connects to a work/ entertainment wing with dance and recording studios, a 20-seat theater, a game room and a speakeasy-style bar. Other living spaces include formal and informal living rooms, a

12-person dining room and a wood-paneled office. Including the master suite, which has a sitting area and terrace, there are nine bedrooms and 13 bathrooms. Outdoors, there’s a resort-style swimming pool as well as a play area and a lounge. Garage

parking can accommodate up to eight vehicles, and 15 more can be parked in the motor court. Lopez, 47, has film credits that include starring roles in last year’s “The Boy Next Door” and “Lila & Eve” and the 1997 movie “Selena.” Her eight

studio albums include her 1999 debut album “On the 6” and her most recent, “A.K.A.” Earlier this year she paid $28 million for an eightacre estate in Bel-Air formerly owned by actress Sela Ward and her husband, Howard Sherman.
