Plants not seen in Ohio in decades found in Summit, Portage counties - Akron Beacon Journal
Ohio in 1991, when Bissell found it with a volunteer in a fen, a type of wetland, on the east shore of Clinton’s Luna Lake in southern Summit County.Bissell made the May 2019 find in Long Lake Fen, a nearly 60-acre nature preserve owned by the museum on the southeastern shore of Long Lake.The species, along with the three others found in Ohio last year, had been presumed extirpated in Ohio, meaning a naturally occurring population had not been observed in more than 20 years. Statewide, there are more than 80 species considered extirpated, some not seen in more than a century."It's always nice to find something that hasn't been seen in over 20 years," Bissell said.Now that the American cuckoo-flower has been found in Ohio, Bissell said the species — a member of the mustard family with small white flowers — has been listed as endangered in the state.Division of Natural Areas and Preserves Chief Botanist Rick Gardner said the American cuckoo-flower typically only occurs in fens, a type of wetland often only visited by botanists, biologists and other scientists."You have to be out in the right time of the year," he said. "When it's not in bloom, it could be easily overlooked."Other "lost" plants found in Ohio in 2019 include the water marigold — an aquatic flowering plant last seen in Ohio in the 1930s — found in Portage County in September; the black-stemmed spleenwort — a type of fern last seen in Ohio in 1900 — found in Adams County in May; and Vasey’s pondweed — an aquatic plant last seen in Ohio in 1935 — found in Lorain County in June.Gardner said the water marigold was found at a natural lake in Portage County. He said he couldn’t provide additional information, as the landowner who found the species on their property wants to remain anonymous.The Vasey’s pondweed was found by Cleveland Metroparks and Lorain County Metro Parks employees working on aquatic invasive species, while the black-stemmed spleenwort was found by a group of coll...

A New Toni Morrison Documentary Gives the World’s Greatest Living Writer Her Flowers, and Plants New Seeds - The Root
Morrison first appeared before him with a pipe. Greenfield-Sanders, who’s shot portraits of Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Serena Williams, and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, says he was first struck by Morrison’s confidence: “She always did have a kind of presence that was undeniable.”AdvertisementGreenfield-Sanders tells The Root he first conceived of doing a Morrison documentary after doing a film about singer, songwriter and Velvet Underground lead Lou Reed. The timing of the retrospective, filmed more than 15 years before the singer passed, allowed Reed and his legendary contemporaries, like David Bowie and Patti Smith, to participate.“You want to do a film about someone when they’re still able to participate in it,” Greenfield-Sanders says. “And I think that that’s what’s so strong here, is that Toni tells her story.”AdvertisementOne technique Greenfield-Sanders uses to foster intimacy between Morrison and the viewer is to let her talk directly to the camera while everyone else talking about her is set at an angle—a nod to the fact that the focus, even when she’s not in the frame, is always on Morrison.There is much in the film for viewers in all stages of Morrison fandom. The most devout Morrison readers will likely be familiar with the criticism she received in the ’70s and ’80s that her work was too concerned with black Americans; she is “is far too talented to remain only a marvelous recorder of the black side of provincial American life” read a New York Times book review of Sula). They’ll also be familiar with Morrison’s fierce and persistent refusal to bow to the white gaze in her work and to defer to white critics, predecessors, and contemporaries.Advertisement“I was more interesting than they were. I knew more than they did. And I wasn’t afraid to show it,” Morrison says in the doc.br... Apr 27, 2019

Saving SF's Conservatory of Flowers, Golden Gate Park's grandest building - San Francisco Chronicle
On the same day the House Judiciary Committee voted to impeach her husband, Hillary Clinton came to San Francisco to help save the lovely old Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park," columnist Carl Nolte wrote in The Chronicle on Dec. 12, 1998.
Clinton's 10-minute address announced a $5 million grant from a private foundation, with potential matching funds to cover the gap for the estimated $18 million bill.
It is "a national treasure," the first lady said after a private tour of the conservatory. "One of the most important landmarks in the entire country."
With Clinton's help - as well as $2 million from the city - the conservatory was restored and celebrated its grand reopening in September 2003.

Seasonal Flowers for Fall and Winter - Columbus Monthly
Meacham and Kasey Conyers of Orchard Lane Flowers (another Central Ohio weddings mainstay, located in Clintonville) have suggestions for making floral selections that are right for the season, but still accomplish the look you're dreaming of.
Instead of: Peonies
Peonies were once only available for a short time in the spring. Now, thanks to Alaskan greenhouses, Meacham says, they're in-season again in mid to late summer. That doesn't mean fall and winter brides need to cut the incredibly popular peony out of their plans, but they should be prepared to pay a price.
"Winter peonies are going to be extremely costly, as they are flown in to the U.S. from far-away farms in the Southern Hemisphere," Conyers says. "They aren't the most economical choice, but we can get them from other parts of the world if we need to."
In-season peonies, Conyers says, should cost around $8 to $9 per stem. During the off-season you can expect to pay closer to $15 to $20 per stem.
Meacham offers the similarly lush and bulbous dahlia as an alternative seasonal statement flower for fall.
"The Café au Lait dahlia is especially beautiful for weddings," Mecham says, adding that they're available from local growers into October.
This generous, dense bloom comes in other classic wedding colors-dusty peach, ivory, champagne and creamy pink-and has an elegant, ombre-like fade throughout its layered, geometric petals.
Instead of: Strictly seasonal themes or color palettes
Try: Blues, white-on-white, greens
Why stick to a season at all?
"Brides are having a lot of fun with their colors and breaking from the traditional ‘holiday' or ‘winter' colors," Conyers says. "They're doing what feels right for their wedding, even if it's not what you'd expect to see at that time of year."
Blush pink, whites and heavy greens are still trending no matter what the weather, Meacham adds. Indeed, a good florist can make your wedding colors come to life no matter the season.
"We're seeing a large range of colors and blooms being used in the winter," Conyers says. "We had a lot of fun this past winter with bright whites, crisp greens and a touch of blue."
If you like the traditional red holiday color palette, consider adding some contemporary fullness to it, she says: Mix a touch of blush with bright and deep reds and a strong burgundy.
White-on-white also makes a big impact, lending a high-end feel to a winter wonderland. Texture is key here: All-white arrangements of h...
