Illustrated talk on Carl Purdy concludes wildflower exhibit at Grace Hudson Museum in Ukiah
Unable to afford college, he taught himself what he needed to know about native plants and corresponded with experts, including a collaboration with Santa Rosa horticulturist Luther Burbank. In his long lifetime, he wrote articles for plant journals; landscaped estates for wealthy clients; helped assemble the horticultural component of the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exhibition in San Francisco; and named a number of flowers for science, including the yellow Diogenes’ lantern, which he called calochortus amabilis, Latin for “loved one.”
Brovarney notes, “He was always trying something new,” cultivating a variety of flowers on land he homesteaded on the slopes of Cow Mountain, two hours each way by horse and buggy to town.Originally from the Bay Area, Brovarney is well- known in the Ukiah Valley for her work as a regional historian. After serving as curator of the Mendocino County Museum in Willits from 1988 to 1990, she was curator of the Grace Hudson Museum from 1990 to 1996. Currently, she is working on a book about the natural and cultural history of Lake Leonard and Reeves Canyon.
Brovarney describes the joys and rewards of working in local history, such as the time she reached into a secretary desk while doing research at the Purdy family homestead and discovered a spiral notebook. Browsing through it, she discovered valuable documentation by Purdy grandson Carl Mahurin on a 1938 bulb collecting trip to the Sierra with his grandfather—information that had likely been sitting undiscovered for decades.This will also be the last weekend to visit the museum’s latest exhibit, “Beauty and the Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change,” which closes on June 17.
Featuring exquisite photos of wildflowers from a variety of ecosystems throughout the state by photographers Rob Badger and Nita Winter, along with information on the threats wildflowers face due to climate change, the photos are an apt update to Carl Purdy’s earlier work to care for the area’s wild as well as cultivated land.The Grace Hudson Museum is at 431 S. Main St. in Ukiah. The museum is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 4:30 p.m. General admission is $4; $10 per family; $3 for students and seniors; free to all on the first Friday of the month; and always free to members.

Random Acts of Flowers brings extra kindness to Silicon Valley
I learn from “Where on Earth.” The book invites discovery of a new plant or a little-known public garden. Who could resist Wild Toad Nursery in Santa Rosa, which sells aquatic as well as “cheery” drought-tolerant plants? And if I am in Pacific Palisades (Los Angeles County), I definitely will visit the garden of the Self Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine Temple. It’s a garden on 10 acres by the ocean, started by Paramahansa Yogananda, inspired by the gardens of Kashmir.Slime tipPlease pardon the yuck factor, but it has to be said that sometimes a gardener just can’t resist picking a slug or snail off a plant with bare hands. If you’ve been that gardener and regretted having done this because of the resulting slime on your hand, you will be glad to know how to remove it. Through trial and error, I have found the solution. Soap doesn’t work, but vinegar does. I keep a bottle of white vinegar, the cheapest kind, just for this purpose. Pour it on the slimed area, rub it in; repeat if necessary, then wash your hands with soap and water.Pam Peirce is the author of “Golden Gate Gardening.” Visit her website, www.pampeirce.com Email: email@example.com...

Biologists find rare flower on Santa Barbara Island
Yvonne Menard said.The park includes five islands — Anacapa, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa, San Miguel and Santa Barbara — that are home to sea lion and elephant seal rookeries, as well as breeding grounds for brown pelicans, western gulls and others.San Miguel Island was dotted with yellow at the peak of the coreopsis bloom recently. (Photo: NATIONAL PARK SERVICE)Santa Barbara is the smallest island at about one square mile and the southernmost point in the park. It has been closed to the public since mid-January 2016 after high surf damaged the landing, access ladders and pier pilings.Recent storms caused additional damage, Menard said.Officials do not yet have an estimate when repairs will be completed and access restored.Related stories:Engineering reports are being reviewed, Menard said. Once a plan is in place, officials would have to secure funding for the project and find a contractor.Initial reports estimated a temporary fix would cost $1.5 million to $2 million and replacing the landing would cost $10 million to $12 million.Biologists spotted the rare plant while on an annual plant survey on the island, Menard said.White mallow, a rare plant, recently was spotted on Santa Barbara Island. (Photo: NATIONAL PARK SERVICE)It’s unclear what triggered them to sprout this year.Mallow is from a family of desert plants that can lie dormant in the soil for long periods, sometimes even decades, officials said.This year’s bloom may have been affected by the timing and quantity of rain or the intensity and amount of the sunlight.Read or Share this story: http://www.vcstar.com/story/news/special-reports/outdoors/2017/03/21/biologists-find-rare-flower-santa-barbara-island/99428756/...

New flower in the cosmos
It’s just training your eye to see them.”
Schell-Engdahl was living in Santa Rosa, Calif., and growing flowers to sell at farmers’ markets when she first noticed a cosmos with a “monstrous-looking mutation.” Some of the petals on the bright-pink flowers were fused, which she’d never seen before.
“I wasn’t sure if it was the alkaline soil or the power lines overhead or what,” says Schell-Engdahl with a laugh. She was uncertain she’d be able to reproduce the mutation, especially since she moved to her parents’ Napa Valley ranch the following year. But when she planted the seeds she’d saved, she still got cosmos flowers with some fused petals.
Schell-Engdahl nurtured her find for nearly 10 years. She culled plants mercilessly, saving only seed from the plants that produced the best flowers. She hand-pollinated them with a paintbrush. Eventually the trait she wanted — those fused petals with a second, smaller row of unfused petals on the inside of the flower — stabilized.
When that happened, she was ready to share her find with the world. She sold her seeds to Thompson & Morgan, a United Kingdom-based seed and plant company. They sell cosmos ‘Cupcakes’ (a name they coined) under the Burpee label in the United States.
Gardening enthusiasts took to cosmos ‘Cupcakes’ in the early 2000s like Americans took to the real thing some 200 years ago.
Nigel Judd of Thompson and Morgan says on Burpee’s website that ‘Cupcakes’ is the company’s best-selling seed and was the Fleuroselect Novelty Award winner in 2014.
“There are no other plants with such a unique flower type,” he states. Schell-Engdahl loves to read online comments from gardeners who say the ‘Cupcakes’ cultivar is now their favorite cosmos. One gardener posted on the Burpee website likes ‘Cupcakes’ as a full-sun midborder and loves their bouquets of “blithesome cut flowers.”
Two factors make her discovery of cosmos ‘Cupcakes’ ... (The Register-Guard)
