Stinky 'corpse flower' in full bloom at Michigan garden
Cory Morse / AP
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Visitors are flocking to a Michigan botanical garden to get a whiff of the unpleasant-smelling "corpse flower" that's in full bloom for the first time in 18 years.The Amorphophallus titanium, also known as the "corpse flower," began blooming Wednesday at the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids. The garden's staff nicknamed the flower "Putricia" for its putrid smell, which is often compared to rotting meat. The flower is opening for the first time since it was planted in 2000.The whole conservatory currently smells and the flower's signature stench lives up to the hype, said Steve LaWarre, Meijer Gardens' horticulture director. Visitors have described the odour as similar to rotten Vidalia onions and mice in an old gym bag.Corpse flowers, typically found in Indonesia and Sumatra, are the largest flowering structures in the world, said Wendy Overbeck, the gardens' horticulture manager. "Putricia" stands at 4.5 feet (1.4 metres) tall.The flower attracts pollinators during its bloom through its potent smell, deep maroon colour and heat emissions, Overbeck said."It's just something really exciting that I hope people will enjoy, or maybe not enjoy because of the smell. I've been calling it a ‘beautiful stink,"‘ LaWarre said. "I hope a lot of people get the chance to experience it."The flower will... Jun 14, 2018
Illustrated talk on Carl Purdy concludes wildflower exhibit at Grace Hudson Museum in Ukiah
California poppies, baby blue eyes (Nemophila menziesii) and more—a feast for the eyes and for young Purdy’s soul. The young Michigan transplant was well on his way to achieving his later title of “The Dean of Wildflowers.”Purdy’s interest in all things botanical continued to blossom, as he explored Mendocino County’s magnificent landscape on foot while befriending local settlers, including the young Grace Hudson and her family. He also met and learned about land management and local native plants from Pomo peoples, watching as they dug into the earth with sticks to unearth lily bulbs which they then cooked and ate, while the motion of the stick helped propagate smaller bulbs.
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 whil... May 24, 2018
