Ear to the Ground: The Insider Dirt to Gardening in Upstate NY

Q&A: We ask, YOU answer (Stump the Chump, September 2014)

by janem on September 2, 2014

 

This issue’s specimen is a toughie. It is a non-native and rare in cultivation here in the States, despite being reliably hardy. A small tree, it only reaches about 20 feet and is generally multi-stemmed. The flowers are fragrant and all above-ground parts are edible.

 

The first reader to guess correctly will win a 4 foot tall Hamamelis mollis ‘Wisley Supreme’ (witch hazel) from Holmes Hollow Farm on Turk Hill in Victor. Submit answers to jane@janemilliman.com (fastest) or by calling 585-733-8979.

 

Answer from last issue (July-August 2014): Yellowwood, or Cladrastis kentukea syn. lutea.
