Dartmouth's stinky 'corpse flower' is set to bloom again
Chicago Botanic Garden.
The Life Sciences Greenhouse at Dartmouth, which opened in 2011, is home to an extensive and varied plant collection. It includes the Brout Orchid Collection, which houses about a thousand orchids of many species and hybrids in two rooms. There are three other rooms open to the public: a tropical room, a sub-tropical room, and a xeric room housing cacti and succulents. The greenhouse is open to the public year-round and will have extended hours for viewing. The greenhouse is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., yet, visitors are encouraged to visit Morphy after 2 p.m., as parking options may be better later in the day. The extended greenhouse hours will be announced soon once Morphy begins to bloom.

BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS: Pink vincas and angelonias for breast cancer fighters
Beautiful Blooms column and we’re thrilled that readers are eager to tell us what they still have blooming as well as their cherished gardening stories.
This week’s highlighted flowers begin with a tribute to Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We all know someone who has battled this disease. Many of us know survivors while some of us know a courageous warrior who lost his or her battle.
These plants – vincas and angelonias – were sent in by Deb Hibdon of New Smyrna Beach as a way of remembering everyone who has fought or are fighting breast cancer.
“I just wanted to share some pinks with you,” Deb wrote. “These vincas and angelonias are so perky! I‘ve had these out in my front yard area for months. They are looking so lovely!”
And perky pink potted flowers are perfect to lift up breast cancer survivors during their special month! Thanks for thinking of them, Deb!
Ron Ceryak of Flagler Beach sent in the gorgeous yellow candelabra cassia bush, which can reach 5 to 8 feet tall and span a 3 to 4-foot width.
“I got some seeds from a friend,” Ron wrote, “and they turned into these beautiful plants.”
I know some gardeners who prefer height than sprawl, so they stake the plants upright, and watch them climb to nearly 12 feet tall.

BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS: Chenille, trumpet and birds of paradise
This summer, it was so small to start and now over three foot tall,” Linda wrote about this Beautiful Bloom that lives in a flower garden on the east side of her pool. “It just keeps on blooming. Each time I think it is done, three or four more blossoms appear. It is so beautiful.”We agree it is one of the more stunning trumpet blooms we’ve seen this season.And how about this yellow bird of paradise sent in by Claire Augusto from Bethune Beach?“This beauty was a complete surprise,” Claire told us. “My sister gifted me four 'orange' birds of paradise after giving up on them ever blooming. She had them in pots for years. I chose to transplant them into my sunny, front flower bed. They bloomed this year – the first year in the ground. The colors are magnificent!”We agree! Thanks to Claire’s sister, Dianne, for giving her birds of paradise on new home to flourish!So let’s keep the Beautiful Blooms flourishing here, too!

(Not necessarily) the last rose of summer
Halloween-like, but October is the perfect time to talk roses. June might be National Rose Month, but roses often get lost in the June gardening shuffle. Roses still blooming in October cause us to notice, having survived light frosts while other flowers have shrunk away.June was selected for celebrating roses because historically, most roses flowered once a year in June. Some shrubs roses still available are June-only bloomers, such as Harrison's Yellow.Although fossil evidence shows roses to be 35 million years old, our modern roses can be traced to plants imported into Europe from China in the late 1700s. The new imports bloomed repeatedly throughout the summer, quite a novelty compared to Europe's June-only roses. Plant breeders went to work, and the modern repeat-blooming rose was born.That's why we can still enjoy roses blooming in October, or until a very heavy freeze. Most rose cultivars available at garden centers today bloom throughout the growing season.When reading rose descriptions in catalogs, on plant tags and in rose literature, we find terms like repeat-blooming, recurrent and remontant, a French-derivative word meaning "to grow again." These terms, used interchangeab...
