It fills me with great pleasure to write my inaugural director’s letter for our seasonal Friends publication at Reynolda Gardens. Since joining the team in December of 2018, I have experienced the Gardens through a full cycle, and while my aim was to sit back and observe, I could not help but jump in headfirst and become an engaged and active steward of this magnificent place. We’ve seen many changes throughout the past year in the Gardens. Our team removed a giant privet hedge between the Gardens and the House and completed the much-needed pruning of the boxwood hedges surrounding the lower formal gardens, which introduced new views into the Gardens. Late October welcomed the return of Meadowfest to our calendar, and families were delighted to celebrate fall at Reynolda with this special event. In November, we had our first Gardens luncheon fundraiser and raised critical funds for drainage infrastructure. We closed out 2019 with the retirement of Operations Manager John Kiger, who spent 26 hardworking and dedicated years with the Gardens. With clarity in sight, 2020 has already brought restoration attention to the lower Historic Rose Garden. Drainage, irrigation, and pathway improvements are nearing completion in the upper gardens, as well as the rehabilitation of our two herb gardens, thanks to a generous gift. We also welcomed two new members to our team in February, Amy Dixon, assistant horticulturist, and Colin Eads, landscape technician. You may have noticed improvements to the way in which we are presenting our programs and plant sales in our calendar—first by transitioning to a new format and now by coming together with the House and Village to present the full slate of happenings throughout all of Reynolda. While we have had an uncertain, and difficult, period in recent weeks, we are excited to cultivate new opportunities ahead. While this has not been the spring that we’ve imagined, it has allowed so many of you to find joy and respite in the beauty of the formal and greater gardens at Reynolda. We can’t wait to see you in the Gardens! Sincerely,

During a first-year seminar class, “The Vocation of Healing,” student partners were asked to give a thorough history of Lake Katharine, including its current importance as an operational wetland. This aquatic oasis serves many purposes that our student partners highlighted through the creation of a Story Map. The development of this piece highlights the Wetlands preservation and will be a valuable component for educating our greater community on the Wetlands many benefits.

The “Environmental Issues” class included a student group that researched the management of our meadow. This project analyzed the viability of the Meadow restoration project and also developed a long-term plan that will allow staff to perpetuate the ecological benefits gained in the restoration project. These benefits include enriching wildlife habitats, reducing stormwater runoff, and decreasing emissions in and around the meadow, improving the overall health of the ecosystem.

White-nose syndrome, a fungal disease that has killed millions of insecteating bats in the U.S. and Canada, made its way into the Piedmont region of North Carolina in the winter of 2015-2016. What are the consequences for the bat species that are susceptible to the white-nose syndrome, and also for the bat species that are resistant to the disease? Since 2015, Traci Porter, associate professor of biology and chair of the biology department at Salem College, has been spending her summers surveying bats in the Piedmont. To assess the health and reproductive status of the bats, she and her team catch bats in mist nets, which are fine-mesh nets strung across bat flyways. After a few quick measurements and health assessments, they release the bats unharmed. To determine what other species are active in the area, Porter and her team also record bat echolocation calls and then use computer software to analyze what species made each of the calls. One site thatâ€™s been rich in bat activity has been here at the Gardens. Big brown bats (Eptesicus fuscus) are especially common among the both the captures and echolocation recordings; they have been reported as having some resistance to white-nose syndrome. Also present are eastern red bats (Lasiurus borealis) and evening bats (Nycticeius humeralis), which do not seem to be affected by white-nose syndrome, and tri-colored bats (Perimyotis subflavus), which are particularly susceptible to the disease. Species more rarely detected in the recordings are silver-haired bats (Lasionycteris noctivagans), Mexican free-tailed bats (Tadarida brasiliensis), and hoary bats (Lasiurus cinereus). You can find more about bats, and even download plans for making a bat house, at batcon.org.

In 2017, our South Rose garden was finally transformed from an All-America Rose Selection Garden to a lower maintenance rose garden with the aim of introducing the public to roses we would recommend as disease tolerant and lower maintenance. During the five year transformation process we consulted the following rose research facilities, breeders, and gardens: EarthKind Roses, David Austin, Kordes, Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden at the New York Botanical Garden, and Biltmore. It has been the desire of these institutions to introduce to the public beautiful roses that are disease tolerant, cold-hardy and low maintenance. Based on our own observations from 2019, here are some of our roses we believe fit this criteria.

Giant zinnias, giant success by Michelle Hawks
With their long, thick stem and dahlia-like flowers, the zinnias in the cottage garden were total awesomeness last summer. Looking through the seed catalog last winter, I noticed the giant zinnias. Sometimes the pictures in plant catalogs make the plants look larger than they actually are so I was hesitant to order them. Now, I am so glad that I did! We planted Benaryâ€™s giant zinnia from Johnnyâ€™s Selected Seeds catalog. (www.johnnyseeds.com). These zinnias will make a great addition to any garden. They are amazing as a cut flower, they bloom all summer long and apparently they love to be neglected just a little. I recommend fertilizing and staking them up. The giant zinnia is one flower that will continue to stand tall and bloom in the garden for years to come. This summer be on the lookout for the giant zinnia once again at Reynolda Gardens, along with the lime, carmine rose, and yellow flame zinnias.

Zephyranthes R A I N L I LY, Z E P H Y R L I LY, A N D F A I R Y L I LY
DA H L I AS
Dahlias come in a rainbow of colors, shapes and sizes. They are available in border sizes under two feet tall or varieties that grow four to five feet tall and need to be staked and are grown from small, brown tubers planted in the Spring. They are only truly winter hardy in USDA zones 8 to 11. In zones 2 to 7, gardeners will need to dig them up and store them for the Winter. On the other hand, if the Winter is not too severe in zone 7, they may survive. I recommend the following that we had success with in the Lower Formal Gardens: ‘All Triumph’ Lovely 4" pure white blooms on good stems. Very attractive, compact 2 1/2' bush. Early bloomer. Recommended as a cut flower. Semi-Dwarf. ‘Little Blessings’ Multiple 2 ½” blooms of lavender/ pink petals. Compact grower at 12”. Great variety for containers, borders, or areas where space is limited! Dwarf. 8

Zephyranthes has the common name rain lily for an interesting reason, in that they will bloom after a rain or, as we have noticed, with a little encouragement from irrigation. The rain lily is great for bridging the gap between Spring and Fall crocus in that they resemble the flower of crocus and bloom during the summer into the fall. They are a narrow grass-like foliar bulb growing six to twelve inches tall; perfect when used in a border or rock garden. Their colors range from yellow to pink to white. They are hardy to USDA zones 7-10, though they generally need some winter protection in zone 7.
The spring of 2019 brought with it a stretching of my imagination and a coloring outside the lines. It is not that we have never colored outside the lines at Reynolda Gardens, but not to the extent we ventured in the Lower Formal Gardens. I have many favorite plants from the spring of 2019 that I look forward to sharing with you this year.
ABYSSINIAN GLADIOLUS PEACOCK GLADIOLUS
‘MESA YELLOW’ BLANKET FLOWER
These plants are a perfect addition to any historical garden, having been introduced in 1896. Abyssinian gladiolus are sweetly scented, pure star-shaped white blooms curved downward with a purple/mahogany center on a spike. The flower spike stands twice as tall as the sword-like leaves at 18-24” tall. We found that they do not have to be staked like most common gladioli if planted deep or supported by other strong, sturdy plants. USDA hardiness zone 7-10. Depending on the winter, in zone 7 it is recommended they should be planted deep and mulched. Bloom time - July to September.
‘Mesa Yellow’ blanket flowers would be a great addition to any garden. Unlike the Gaillardia ‘Dazzler’ that flops, the ‘Mesa Yellow’ will grow upright at 14 to 16 inches tall. Blanket flower enjoys full sun, in average, medium, well-drained soil. They have few disease or insect problems, and are rarely eaten by deer.
Getting to know porterweed by Jon Roethling
One thing I love to do is to really take a deep dive into a particular species or group of plants and learn as much as possible. This past Summer a group of plants commonly called porterweed (Stachytarpheta sp.) grabbed my attention. The common name refers to a foaming, porter-like brew similar to beer, made from a species in the Bahamas. Maybe we could get a limited run brewed locally? Other common names include snakeweed, vervain, and the ever marketable, rat’s tail. Porterweed (Stachytarpheta) hails from the same family as verbena (Verbenaceae) and its inflorescence looks as if you took the flower cluster of verbena and stretched it out with all the individual flowers now along a stalk instead of clustered tightly together. The individual flowers begin at the bottom of the flower spike and gradually open along the way up. While it will never compete with other mainstream annuals such as petunias or marigolds for volume of color, they do have a subtle quality that comes with an added bonus. Porterweed tends to accessorize with butterflies and other pollinators. The individual flowers may be small but they are nectar rich and a favorite of butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators making them a haven for aerial activity in the garden. Its color ranges from a salmon-coral to deep red, light blue to deep purple. One species, Stachytarpheta orubica, hailing from Columbia and northwest Venezuela, has nearblack flowers, but to my knowledge it is not currently in cultivation. If you have seeds, let’s talk! 10

Stachytarpheta microphylla ‘Compacta’
The Gardens has grown a few different selections in the past, most notably, Stachytarpheta mutabilis (coral porterweed), S. microphylla ‘Compacta’ (dwarf red porterweed), and S. ‘Lavender’ but due to the fact that I am a plant addict I sought out as many selections as possible. Almost Eden, a wonderful mail-order nursery out of Louisiana, was a great source on several selections that we didn’t possess. Two other selections made their way from my mentor’s garden way out in Oklahoma, Tulsa Botanic Garden. And most recently, a new addition came back with me from Florida. In total, we now have nine different taxa of porterweed in our collections.

In the spring of 1997, Reynolda Gardens re-roofed the Playhouse, which was needed because the cedar shakes had deteriorated. Houck Roofing provided the skills necessary to replicate the “wavy” pattern of the original shakes, which was meant to resemble a thatch roof. Twenty years later, the nails holding the shakes in place were rusting away, causing the cedar shakes to loosen and fall to the ground. In early 2017, we decided to re-roof the Playhouse once again.

Doug and Robert Durham, co-owners of Durham Carpentry, located in Troutman, North Carolina, won the bid for the project. Synthetic materials were considered, but due to the structure’s historic significance, cedar

shakes were used once again. However, Doug suggested we use a thicker cedar shake, citing the ones in place were generally used for walls. Unable to find the thicker shakes locally, he ordered them from a company in Vancouver, Canada.
Before installation of the cedar shakes began, Doug Durham suggested we install cedar breather material under the shakes, which is a vinyl mesh that allows the shakes to have air flow underneath, thereby airiding in drying the shingles during and after rain and snow.
In late August 2017, the Durham brothers removed the old cedar shakes and nails, copper flashing, and the underlying felt material, exposing the structure to a very sound roof.
Reinstalling the shingles was a very slow process. After each row was laid, the Durhams traced the “wavy” pattern onto the new shingles, using a template saved from the re-roofing in 1997. The Playhouse roof project was completed successfully in February of 2018.
Specific materials were intentionally selected to prolong the life of our new roof on the Playhouse. Roofing professionals from Wake Forest University suggested we use a number-one-grade, sawed-cedar shingle, which we had upgraded at Doug’s suggestion, and stainless steel nails for the entire roof. To add further protection, the entire roof was covered with 30-pound felt and an additional snow and ice guard was added to the hip and ridge. To allow heat to escape, we also installed a vinyl ridge vent, capped with copper.
Originally, the roof of the Playhouse was stained green, a solid color stain. Choosing the color wasn’t too difficult because we had examples of older shingles. In April of 2018, Resource Painting was hired to repaint the exterior walls and re-stain the new roof. It is our hope that this new roof will continue to be one of our most treasured places in the Gardens and will serve as a joy to all who pass by.
Donor spotlight Pat Michal, a long-time Friend of Reynolda Gardens and a Wake Forest University alumni, expressed an interest in making a special gift to the Gardens from her IRA. After meeting with Jon Roethling and learning about some of the major needs and priorities for the Gardens, she decided to make a gift to help restore the herb garden. Thanks to her generosity, this Spring our staff will begin to reestablish the soil, redesign the plant beds, and replant the herb displays. Pat will be recognized with a sign in the restored herb garden once the work is complete. The herb garden is sure to delight visitors and pollinators alike! To learn more about how you can support Reynolda Gardens through your estate, please contact Stephan Dragisic at email@example.com or 336.758.5595.
Volunteer spotlight Gardens volunteers are a special gift to the Gardens, and Karen Sterling is no exception. The WinstonSalem native has been a volunteer for the past year and is a self-described “plantaholic.” She has been a plant lover for more than 20 years, and her favorite plants are orchids and cacti. She retired from the City of WinstonSalem in 2018, where she worked in landscaping for 29 years. Karen volunteers in the Gardens once a week and said that she could live in the Greenhouse. She has three children and four grandchildren and enjoys animals and antiques in addition to plants and nature. “I once had over 100 turtles at once,” she said. “They called me the turtle lady.” Karen said she loves the staff and rich history of the Gardens and feels like she is part of the team. Thank YOU, Karen, for all that you do - we are lucky to have you!
