Desperately Seeking Scents

March 10, 2010
The past year has been an olfactory adventure in Longwood's research greenhouses. In preparation for Making Scents: the Art and Passion of Fragrance, we brought in a variety of fragrant plants for trial. Some plants, such as roses, are common and easy to obtain. Fragrant varieties such as Rosa ‘Secret’s out’, R. ‘Gros Choux d’Hollande, R. ‘De Resht’, R x centifolia, R. ‘Compte Chambord’, and ‘Jaques Cartier’ will be making an appearance in the Conservatory during the exhibition.

Passport to the World

I love the theme of the 2010 Philadelphia Flower Show--Passport to the World (through March 7). This year's show features gardens themed to some of the world's richest horticultural locations, including South Africa, Brazil and the Netherlands!
