New seasonal succulent displays have just been planted in our Pincushion Garden. The Pincushion Garden resurrects a “lost art” of garden design once common in traditional Victorian displays. Each summer horticulturists arrange approximately 25,000 succulent plants in geometric designs, a process that can take up to two weeks. Stroll through the Victorian District to see the finished work, and check out more images of the planting process here: http://ow.ly/xSNW0

The Titan arum returns! "Izzy," an Amorphophallus titanum that last flowered at the Garden in 2012, is approaching the bloom cycle again. Horticulturists expect it to unfurl (and begin emitting its signature odor) sometime over the next week.

Learn more about this unique plant at http://www.mobot.org/titanarum, and follow the Garden on Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/mobotgarden) for the latest updates on its progress.

This colorful monarch recently stopped by our bottlebrush path, right on time for National Pollinators Week. A visit to the Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House would be the perfect way to celebrate this weekend: www.butterflyhouse.org

According to a recent study, Botanist Carl Linnaeus (from whom our Linnean House gets its name) is Wikipedia's most influential person.
The most influential person on Wikipedia is someone you’ve probably never heard of

"To discover and share knowledge about plants and their environment in order to preserve and enrich life." - Mission of the Missouri Botanical Garden
Introduction
Founded in 1859, the Missouri Botanical Garden is the nation's oldest botanical garden in continuous operation and a National Historic Landmark.

The Garden is a center for botanical research and science education, as well as an oasis in the city of St. Louis. The Garden offers 79 acres of beautiful horticultural display, including a 14-acre Japanese strolling garden, Henry Shaw's original 1850 estate home, and one of the world's largest collections of rare and endangered orchids.

For over 152 years, the Garden has been an oasis in the city, a place of beauty and family fun—and also a center for education, science, and conservation.
