Succulent Tablescapes

Succulent Tablescapes

Down those great little side alleys off of One Colorado in Old Town, sits Botany Flowers. This weekend Crunchy Crafters join forces with Botany Flowers in Pasadena (they also have a shop in Santa Monica) for a workshop on “living art.” Elegant, well-balanced, and durable are the words used to describe the ultimate goal in [...]

In front of Ayres Hall this weekend, visitors will be deluged with a superabundance of ferns and exotic plants at the Los Angeles International Fern Society‘s Annual Fern & Exotic Plant Show & Sale.

Walking the Gardens, Plant Advice & Evening Concerts

Walking the Gardens, Plant Advice & Evening Concerts

The days are getting hot and will only become more so as we head further into July, then August and September. Sometimes it is so hot, it’s difficult to enjoy the wonders that are our world. So, how about getting out before the heat strikes and see what’s blooming at the Arboretum? Docent-led walking tours [...]

Clone Your Plants & Free Tuesday

Clone Your Plants & Free Tuesday

We hear “cloning” and we cringe, get a tad fearful, feel the world will all the more quickly become something we no longer recognize. Luckily, Descanso Gardens is only teaching plant propagation, not the cloning of the family pet or little Timmy. Their “Green Thumb 101″ workshop will allow guests to have a hands-on experience and [...]

Cacti & Succulents at the Huntington

Cacti & Succulents at the Huntington

Now that we’re deep into, and not soon emerging from, a serious drought, the Huntington’s annual Cactus and Succulent Sale, June 28th-29th, is even more relevant. Hundreds of outstanding and intriguing plants will be on view as the Cactus and Succulent Society of America presents its 49th annual show and sale (with an early-bird sale [...]

Pop-Up Garden

Pop-Up Garden

We remember the time we visited Giverny and the home, pond, and gardens of Claude Monet. Of course, the first thing to register is that the house is pink. Oui, la chambre est peint en rose. It’s a two-story, wide pink house half covered with ivy and with bright green shutters. Inside, the kitchen is [...]

The Daylily Show

The Daylily Show

Their scientific name is Hemerocallis. Those who are not so scientific, call them daylilies. The daylily is “sometimes referred to as the perfect perennial.” Why? Because it is: Available in a rainbow of colors and a variety of shapes and sizes. Able to survive with very little care in a wide range of climates. Suitable for [...]

Bonsai!

Bonsai!

How many people have gone through the decades pronouncing the “o” in bonsai like the “o” in bonbon (bän-bän)? Would it be surprising to hear that the Santa Anita Bonsai Society directs one to pronounce the word “bone-sigh” (bōn-sī)? Then again, listening to Merriam-Webster online and clicking on the speaker icon, the supposedly Japanese speaker sounds [...]

Celebrating the Garden: Altadena’s Golden Poppy

Celebrating the Garden:  Altadena’s Golden Poppy

Altadena Heritage is ringing in spring with their annual Golden Poppy Awards and Spring Garden Celebration. The event honors Altadena residents “whose gardens beautify our neighborhoods.” The event will be held in the garden of the Monterey Colonial-style estate designed by architect Robert H.
