Sighting the Pileated at NYBG after a 73-year absence is certainly a feather in our cap!

Oh, c’mon, admit it: he’s cute. It’s lucky for our plants that he’s a Monarch, and only eats milkweed.

The irises are blooming now for Monet’s Garden, just as they are across the Atlantic in the artist’s garden at Giverny, in the north of France. Walking through our own display in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, you’ll come upon several breeds of royal purple flower poking proudly from between the delphiniums, poppies, and furry mullein stalks. But outside, the iris is a constant spring resident!

The concept of Earth-Kind® roses began in Texas in the late 1990s, when a professor at Texas A was asked for recommendations on roses that were attractive and low-maintenance. The professor realized that no systematic study had been done in this area and set about creating the Earth-Kind® trials.
