In a small but maintainable yard they have created a mini garden of joy. Planting a variety of fruit trees, including oranges, bananas, vegetables, medicinal herbs and flowering plants.
They are lovingly tending to their plants from early morning through to the evening. This is why they have been chosen for The Clermont Garden Club’s Yard of the Month for September 2023.

September City Hall Plant Loaned by Cindy Simon

CGC member, Cindy Simon, shares a Ruby Red Fittonia plant with City Hall.

The Fittonia argyroneura is a striking houseplant due to the color combination in its leaves: pink and green, white and green, or green and red. Growing this plant is easy, however, it has the tendency to look wilted when you neglect to water it. Don’t worry. It can perk right back up once it is watered.

Plant Care:

Growth: Approx 4”
Pet Friendly
Likes bright, indirect light

Prefers its soil moist but not soggy. Water when the soil starts to feel dry. Water evenly around the plant. Do not overwater

September Cooper Memorial Library Plant Loaned by Linda Lauletta

Linda is sharing Anthurium spp., Flamingo Flower for the month of September. The plant is an herbaceous perennial, 12-18 inches tall with a 9–12-inch spread. The plant likes bright indirect light sitting in coarse, moist potting mix. Flowers year round, usually 3-month intervals and comes in colors of red, pink, or white with a contrasting spadix. 

An anthurium can be grown in a glass of water. Keep the glass two-thirds full of water and add a drop or two of liquid houseplant fertilizer to the water every 10 to 14 days. Fill the bottom 3 inches of the glass with small pebbles to anchor roots.

April Plant Loaned to City Hall by CGC Member, Pam Molesky

The April plant loaned to City Hall by CGC member Pam Molesky is a Dracaena marginata.
Dracaena marginata is a popular indoor plant with long, slender green leaves edged with red. These plants are great for beginners because they’re drought tolerant and not at all fussy about their light conditions. Choose a pot with drainage that’s just a few inches larger than the root ball so the root system has room to grow. As for soil, buy or make a loamy, well-draining mix with a pH of 6-7.
Dracaena marginata is a slow-growing plant, so you’ll only need to repot every few years to keep this plant happy. If the soil gets compacted (hardened and pulling away from the edge of the pot) you might want to change it out for fresh soil.
Light: Dracaena marginata prefers bright, indirect light, but if you’re short on light in your home, no worries! This plant will also do just fine in lower light conditions, but it won’t grow as quickly or use water as efficiently. (So just be careful not to overwater.)  Keep your plant out of direct sunlight though, as this can burn the leaves.
Water: These plants are quite drought-resistant and don’t require a lot of water, so wait until the top half of the soil is completely dry before watering. Then, water thoroughly with distilled water, until water starts to run out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot.
Members of the Clermont Garden Club loan a plant for display at City Hall for the months of September – May.
