Pest Alert: Amynthas agrestis (crazy worm or Jumping worm) @NPDN @IllinoisDNR @PublicGardens @IPSN_BGCI @BGCI

Unwanted wiggler discovered! About a month ago, one of our horticulturists called me out to look at a groundcover planting that was being heavily disturbed by worms. At first look, I thought nothing of it—maybe it was increased surface worm activity from…

Glorious gladiolus are #whatsinbloom at the Garden! #pink #fallcolor

Each fall, we sing the praises of fall allium and autumn crocus blooms. This year, however, a special mention must be made for the glorious gladiolus! Especially the delicate, 4-inch salmon pink flowers of the salmon gladiolus (Gladiolus oppositiflorus…

For REU Participants, #summer was time to get to work learning. #sciencefirst #collegefirst #NSF

On a recent day in Chicago, with the sun beating down and temperatures climbing into the 90s, many college students idling through their last week at home headed for the beach. Lounging about was not on the agenda for the undergraduates gathered at the…

Can Spike's "Perfume" Be Captured in a Jar? #CBGSpike #YoungScientist #curious

Of the many Spike-related questions asked by visitors this week, our favorite came from 8-year-old Prairie! In the video below, Prairie wants to know, in essence, if she can transport Spike’s malodorous odor from the Garden to her classroom. Good…

Look closer at the plants around you—discoveries in #botany are exciting for everyone.

I scratch my head and wipe the sweat from my brow. One of my summer interns found a little plant, under a bunch of big plants, and we thought for a second it might be the same as the big plants, but it is definitely different. It’s our first field day. We…

Bonus! #CBGSpike produced #pollen to create more #titanarum & taught our visitors more about #botany. #STEM #IAmABotanist

Thousands gather for "Operation Spike" and to celebrate that Spike will live to bloom another day. #CBGSpike #CorpseFlower

What an amazing plant science moment in the Semi-Tropical Greenhouse this morning, as a fascinated crowd gathered to see what was happening with Spike, the titan arum. On Saturday, it was determined that Spike had run out of the energy it needed to…
