Hellebores Today: What's New and Exciting?
Dick and Judith Knott Tyler have owned and operated Pine Knot Farms in Clarksville, VA since 1982. They became focused on the genus Helleborus and began breeding the plants. Each winter the Tylers travel around the world to the UK, Europe and The Balkans in search of new hellebores to add to their collection which includes all the species and innumerable hybrids. Their breeding work with the double forms has sparked national interest.
Judith is the author, with C. Coleston Burrell, Hellebores: A Comprehensive Guide which features many of Dick's remarkable photographs. Dick is responsible for all the slides and photographs used for talks, website, and publications.
The Tylers are former co-curators of the Garden of Winter Delights at the J.C. Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh NC. Their gardens at Pine Knot Farms have been featured in Southern Living, Virginia Gardener, and Martha Stewart Living among other publications, and on Martha Stewart’s TV show. We will have some select hellebores for sale after the lecture.

The Booksellers at Laurelwood presents Mister Owita’s Guide to Gardening
Mister Owita’s Guide to Gardening: How I Learned the Unexpected Joy of a Green Thumb and an Open Heart is the first-person, nonfiction story about Carol Wall’s unlikely friendship with Giles Owita, a Kenyan-born landscape designer who took on the arduous task of rehabilitating Wall’s neglected yard in Roanoke, Virginia. More importantly, though, he tended to Wall’s wounded spirit. Diagnosed with cancer before she met Owita, Wall had begun to lose faith in her religion, humanity, and herself.
The book follows their blossoming friendship; their unusual relationship creating a bond that bridged their disparate backgrounds and taught them both about the wonderful secrets life has in store. Wall received her third cancer diagnosis in 2012, just a few months before the book was published. Wall was too sick to make appearances, and she passed away in December 2014, just nine months after publication. Since Carol’s death, the Wall family, led by her husband Dick, has redoubled their efforts to promote Carol’s work. “It’s not hard to talk about her,” says Dick. “I like to talk about her. I have to talk about her.”
Free admission; no reservations needed.

Memphis Herb Society: Knowing and Growing Your Herbal Roots
SPEAKER: Tina Marie Wilcox TOPIC: Knowing and Growing Your Herbal Roots There is much more to growing herbs than what meets the eye. Microorganisms living on and around the plant roots, together with the roots create a zone called the rhizosphere. Join Tina Marie for an evening of exploration of life underground and why that matters to herb gardeners! Tina Marie has been the head gardener and herbalist at the Ozark Folk Center State Park’s Heritage Herb Garden in Mountain View, Arkansas since 1984. She coordinates annual herb events and facilitates the production of herb seeds and plants for the park. She writes a weekly herb and garden column entitled “Yarb Tales”, which is published by the Stone County Leader and www.ozarkfolkcenter.com. She co-authored the reference book, the creative herbal home with Susan Belsinger. In 2017 she was honored with the Nancy Putnam Howard Award for Excellence in Horticulture by the Herb Society of America.

Urban Earth Seminar - Hardscape Art with Bernhard Meck
Bernhard Meck thinks outside the box. His art, all at once practical and visionary, is difficult to categorize. Calling it “hardscape,” while largely accurate, does not do it justice. No slight to brick, block, and stone layers, but this is not that. Free form concrete and horticulture might be a little closer to the truth, but still, you won’t understand it until you’ve seen it. Come hear about the work Bernhard has done in landscapes all over the world and right here in Memphis. If you’ve visited the Memphis Zoo, Overton Park, or the Memphis Botanical Garden, you’ve likely seen and admired Bernhard’s work, but if you haven’t, this video should give you some sense of what he does: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAbVLMPhYUI

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.

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!
