Memphis Botanic Garden acquires young “Corpse Flower” named Hank!
For Immediate Release: The Memphis Botanic Garden is excited to announce the arrival of "Hank: an Amorphophallus titanium (Titan Arem), or, as more commonly known - "Corpse Flower:. Hank is only two years old and will needto mature to at least seven years of age before blooming for the first time. After that, with luck, he will re-bloom every three years or so.

Interest in the corpse flower comes from its size - it is the largest unbranched inflorescence (flower) in the plant kingdom, powerful stink, and fleeting presence. Referred to as the corpse flower or stinky plant, its putrid smell is most potent during peak bloom at night into the early morning. The odor of the flower attracts carrion flies that help pollinate it.

The corpse flower does not have an annual blooming cycle. The bloom emerges from, and energy is stored in, a huge underground stem called a "corm." The plant blooms only when sufficient energy is accumulated, making time between flowering unpredictable, spanning from a few years to more than a decade. It requires very special conditions, including warm day and night temperatures and high humidity, making botanic gardens like ours well suited to support this strange plant outside of its natural range. While not normally on public display as we nurture his growth, Hank will be available for viewing in our Visitor Center beginning Tuesday, May 1st for only one week.

This plant is native to the tropical rainforests of Sumatra, Indonesia, and first became known to science in 1878 and to the United States in the 1930’s. In its natural habitat, the corpse flower can grow up to 12 feet tall. Hank currently is about 4 feet tall, having doubled in size since the Memphis Botanic Garden acquired it some months ago.

Memphis Hort Society - Collecting Rare Plants
Dr. Victor Maddox, a Senior Research Associate at Mississippi State University, has had a lifelong fascination with plants that have inspired him to collect thousands of specimens from all over the globe. His collection is housed on 9 acres near Maben, MS and includes both outdoor plants and several greenhouses.

Dr. Maddox holds a bachelor’s degree in horticulture with a minor in botany from Southeast Missouri State University, a master’s degree from MSU in agronomy and a doctorate from MSU in agronomy specializing in turf and native grasses, with a minor in plant taxonomy. During college, he managed a private university collection of about 7,000 hybrid orchids, some dating to the 1940s. Now he manages his personal collection. The collection is arranged thematically with Old World plants from Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe in front of the house. The backyard has plants from the New World — North and South America.

Dr. Maddox is regarded as the premier plant taxonomist in the Southeastern United States. Join us for this evening with Dr. Maddox to learn about his life’s work and passion for plants.

Herbal Work Study: Sugars and Salts
8:00 am sign in.
The first two hours will be spent weeding, grooming, thinning, planting, or whatever else needs doing in the Herb Garden. The last hour will be spent learning about herbs: making and using Sugars and Salts. I will have cold water and bug spray available, you bring your favorite hand tools for weeding and grooming (soil knives, Cape Cod weeders, old kitchen knives, trowels, pruners, gloves, etc. – no hoes or rakes needed, though). If you want to actually participate in the sugars and salts class (instead of just watching), please bring the following: two sandwich baggies with ½ cup of sugar in one, and ½ cup salt in the other, a bowl or cup big enough to hold the sugar and salt, a cutting board, knife, extra sandwich size baggies, and plastic grocery bags. Everyone will get to go home with a handout that includes tips and recipes. Please arrive at the Horticulture Building in the south end of the parking lot between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. The group will leave the building promptly at 8:30 a.m. Please dress appropriately: sun hats and closed toe shoes are suggested. Please note: this learning opportunity is “purchased” via a barter system: you must work the first two hours (8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.) to attend the last hour of class (10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.), making this a free event!).

Movie Screening - Five Seasons - The Gardens of Piet Oudolf
Revolutionary landscape designer Piet Oudolf is known for designing public works like New York City’s popular High Line and the Lurie Garden in Chicago’s Millennium Park that redefine our conception of gardens as works of art in themselves. This gorgeous, meditative documentary immerses viewers in his work, taking us inside Oudolf’s creative process. From his aesthetic theories to his strikingly abstract sketches to the ecological implications of his ideas, the film poetically reveals how Oudolf upends conventional notions of nature, public space, and, ultimately, beauty itself. FREE to the public. Hosted by Memphis Horticultural Society.

Memphis Horticultural Society Meeting - Epimediums: Jewels of the Shade with Karen Perkins
Known by many as a simple ground cover for dry woodland shade, Epimediums are finally getting the appreciation that they deserve. This “perfect shade perennial” possesses a delicate beauty that belies its surprisingly tough, long-lasting nature.

Karen Perkins will illustrate the many and varied types now commercially available, including some of the exciting new evergreen species from China. Characteristics, growth habit, growing and propagation, pests and diseases, and combining Epimediums with other shade perennials in the garden will also be addressed.

Karen graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in Floriculture and Ornamental Horticulture and from the University of Delaware with a Master of Science in Public Garden Management. She has worked/interned at several botanic gardens including the Cornell Plantations, Longwood Gardens, the Arboretum at Flagstaff, Royal Botanic Gardens – Kew, England and Royal Botanic Gardens – Edinburgh, Scotland. She served in the Education Department of the Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, MA for 17 years. Karen is currently the owner of Garden Visions Epimediums, a Massachusetts-based mail order nursery offering over 170 species and varieties of epimediums along with other choice companion shade perennials.

Most Garden Vision Epimedium sales are through their catalog, which usually comes out in February-March, and is available on their website www.epimediums.com. They also sell at various plant sales throughout the Northeast.

Please join us to learn more about epimediums – an indispensable plant for your shade garden!

The Art of Bonsai
The world of Arts takes many forms. One such form is called a "Living Art" because the subject is alive and evolves as it grows. This Living Art is called "Bonsai" and the subjects are trees and shrubs which, while young, mimic old trees, some of which have survived over the years under stressful conditions causing them to take on unusual forms, which can be pleasing to the eyes.

Come learn about this Living Art form with MBG volunteer Fred Nowak. Bring a sack lunch or enjoy a box lunch from Fratelli’s in the Garden.

Free with regular admission. Call 901-636-4100 for more information.

To participate in this program, Elmwood highly recommends partnering with 1 or 2 of your trusted gardening friends, sharing the responsibility of an assigned area.

Mid South Hosta Society: Tom Pellett, Artist and Garden Designer Surveys His Creations
The Rock Star of Memphis Garden Designers is going home to South Carolina. Tom Pellett’s final lecture as a Memphian will occur Thursday March 21 at 7:00 PM to the Mid-South Hosta Society. His designs have graced Dixon Gallery and Gardens, The Memphis Botanic Garden and many private homes throughout our region. Rather understated and modest, Tom planned gardens with gardeners as he wanted to help them have the garden they dreamed of, not to impose one on them. His plant knowledge seemed boundless as he exercised his craft in garden design using more than three dimensions. After all, gardening taps the fourth dimension of time. Tom is an artist in two dimensions as well, sketching and painting gardens, people, and architecture locally and on his travels.

Come hear this much beloved man as he surveys his time in Memphis since 1983 and says good-bye to a multitude of garden lovers and artistic friends.

Refreshment are at 6:30 p.m. Visitors are welcome.
