Stinky corpse flower in full bloom in California
SAN MARINO, Calif. -- Visitors were flocking to the Huntington Library in Southern California on Friday to get a whiff of a so-called corpse flower, known for the rotten stench it releases when it blooms.
The flower, nicknamed "Stink," began blooming unexpectedly on Thursday night, Huntington spokeswoman Lisa Blackburn said.
"We thought we had a few more days to go. But it was ready, and it was pretty spectacular," she said. "The great thing about these flowers is they're so unusual-looking and have this reputation for smelling really bad. It gets all kinds of people really interested in botanical science. It's just a charismatic plant."
Corpse flowers typically take 15 years to reach a mature blooming size, and blooms usually only last 24 hours.
The foul odour the plants emit attracts insects for pollination. The plants don't emit the foul odour until they bloom.
"It smelled like rotting meat or decaying rats or gym socks," said Brandon Tam, an orchid specialist at the Hunti... Mar 23, 2017

How an Old Newspaperman Who Loved Flowers Created One of LA's Most Beautiful Attractions
La Cañada Flintridge, was no doubt a far-off, all-day commitment for most folks.The Huntington Gardens in San Marino are famous and impressive in an imposing, Downton Abbey kind of way, of course, but Descanso Gardens are more … the best word is natural, more native and wild; a smaller-scale hilly mixture of oak tree forest, nature trails and flower gardens, ponds and some man-made attractions, including a Japanese Tea House, which is quite nice.Once the private estate of a now-forgotten newspaper publisher downtown with the grand name E. Manchester Boddy (pronounced Boe-dee), Descanso is nestled (nay, hidden) near the Verdugo Hills. The amazingly quiet isolation and tranquility when you’re walking through these oak-covered hilly trails is a tonic for city living, a peace-out overload. Who says flowers are only for funerals? (Well, nobody says that, I just wanted to write it.)Judging from the foot traffic the day I went, it seems that the rose garden (the “rosarium”) is probably the most popular attraction at Descanso. Couples get married there all the time, under the spindly wooden arches surrounded by floral splendor, which seems an appropriate setting for such a joyous occasion. I can report that there were plenty of roses swaying in the late-afternoon breezes, big plump ones of unusual colors hanging out in the rain-soaked, very green, sun-dappled garden. A real beautTony MostromManchester Boddy (who resembled three old-time actors: both Douglas Fairbankses and Ronald Colman) was a serious gardener and camellia enthusiast. He was responsible for creating new breeds of these flowers with the help of then-famous horticulturist-hybridizer Walter Lammerts.Plant-nameage is out of my orbit; flowers are flowers. So I grabbed the rather daunting handful of brochures they offer you upon... (L.A. Weekly)Jul 5, 2016

One of the biggest challenges for a plein air artist is finding the perfect spot to set up their easel.
Over the years, the Old Mill (also known as El Molino Viejo) and its grounds in San Marino has inspired a myriad of paintings. It was built around 1816 as a grist mill for Mission San Gabriel and has served as a golf course clubhouse and a private residence. Since 1999, it has housed the California Art Club gallery.
The CAC is now paying homage to the Old Mill with the juried exhibit, “Celebrating Two Centuries,” at its gallery through Sept. 11. The show will feature works produced independently and during paint-outs by artists such as Peter Adams, W. Jason Situ, Frank Lennartz and Karen Winters. All of the paintings are a...

The Secret Language of Flowers
With The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens as part of the San Marino community, understanding those seemingly quirky and enigmatic traditions is as easy as signing up for a class, taking a walk through the gardens, or sitting down with a book from the library.
To learn more about floriography and the art of flower arranging, The Huntington will be hosting a children’s flower arranging workshop on Saturday, June 4 that will discuss the cryptic language of flowers. For a different kind of experience, The Huntington’s Shakespeare Garden displays pansies, fennel, a willow tree and rosemary all to commemorate Ophelia’s famous speech, as well as other varieties that reference his other plays. Head to the garden to try your hand at interpreting the hidden messages laden with meaning in Shakespeare’s texts.
