Plants not seen in Ohio in decades found in Summit, Portage counties - Akron Beacon Journal
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 college students studying biology.Garder said finding even one of these kinds of species in a year is impressive, but finding four is almost unheard of."It really tells you that there's still opportunity to find these species," Gardner said. "To find these species that have very specific habitats and very small, narrow niches in our ecosystems is really special."The focus will now be on protecting the habitats where these rare plants were found to ensure the populations there survive and thrive.In Long Lake Fen, Bissell said he’ll be working to remove invasive species — including phragmites, or reed grass; glossy buckthorn, a nonnative shrub that forms dense stands; and narrowleaf cattail — that threaten the rare plants and other native species at Long Lake."I know we're not done finding rare plants there," he said of the fen. "It seems like every couple years, we find something new."Contact reporter Emily Mills at 330-996-3334, firstname.lastname@example.org and @EmilyMills818.

Flowers Become an Unlikely Means to Discuss Identity and Politics - Hyperallergic
Derrick Adams, “Figure Walking into the Light 24” (2018), acrylic paint, pencil, and fabric on paper, 24 x 18 inches (courtesy of the artist)More menace greeted me around the corner, in a rope with the world’s creepiest hair clip cinching the center. In Diana Sofia Lozano’s “SubRosa” (2019), the thorny, green stems of roses became claws. You won’t find relief in the petals either; thick and velvety, they resemble a mouth that could swallow the viewer. Every part of this flower inspires fear: The hair clip resembles a noose, perhaps for a victim choked by femininity.Other works are more ambiguous, and, in some cases, seemed inscrutable to me. Derrick Adams’s paint-and-textile collage, “A Figure Walking Into the Light 24” (2018), is a quasi-cubist profile of a Black man wearing a flower-print shirt. He appears to be immersed in contemplation, melancholy but determined. William Villalongo uses velvet as his canvas for “Brother, Brother” (2019). Small slashes in the velvet reveal multiple floral, plant, and insect motifs underneath; I saw daisy petals, geodes, statues, and African masks. Glimpsing the images beneath the surface feels like embarking on an archeological dig.From left to right: Natalia Nakazawa, “Language of Birds” (2019), jacquard woven textiles and tapestry, 71 x 53 inches (courtesy of the artist); William Villalongo, “Brother, Brother” (2019), acrylic, cut velour paper and pigment print collage, 39 7/8 x 39 3/8 inches, sheet 45 x 44 3/8 x 1 7/8 inches framed (courtesy of the artist and Susan Inglett Gallery, NYC, photo by Stefan Hagen)figure id="attachment_514964" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-514964" class="wp...

Hawaii Gardens: Talented artist, gardener was lifelong supporter of horticulture - Honolulu Star-Advertiser
After a career with the city Department of Parks and Recreation as a recreation director and arts educator, Marie Leilehua Adams McDonald didn’t follow the retirement path that most would. Instead, she moved to Hawaii island and started a farm.Established in the 1970s, Honopua Farm started as a way to cultivate Hawaiian flowers and plants for lei and turned into an organic vegetable farm, which McDonald’s daughter Roen Hufford and her husband took over in the 1990s when McDonald retired for good.
A longtime supporter of Honolulu Botanical Gardens, an award-winning lei maker and kapa artist, McDonald died Aug. 4 at home in Puukapu, Waimea. She was 92.
Throughout the years, she was very involved with the Friends of Honolulu Botanical Gardens, participating in the Flora Pacifica shows and Foster Botanical Garden’s Midsummer Night’s Gleam garden events.
She also helped and encouraged the late Paul Weissich, director emeritus of Honolulu Botanical Gardens, in acquiring the land and brainstorming on the landscape and botanical planning for Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden.
Encouraged by Weissich, McDonald wrote “Ka L...
