Here’s what’s been happening with the Corpse Flower over the past six days. Getting closer to bloom time!

Follow The Huntington for bloom updates on their corpse flower (Amorphophallus titanum)! It’s big, it’s malodorous, it gives Audrey II a run for its money.

The corpse flower, I mean. Not The Huntington. The Huntington is fragrant and lovable and deserves your many visits when you’re on the left coast. —MN

Inspired by the likes of Tim Walker, the Dutch Masters, and Cecil Beaton, the arrangements and installations are in a lot of ways works of art. BRRCH has been featured in Vogue, Elle, and The New York Times Magazine and has done work for Byredo, Steven Alan, and Moda Operandi. Asch says her goal is to bring nature into the city, and I think she is doing just that. (via BRRCH Flowers - Best New York Florists - Brittany Asch - Style.com)

Fashion Week is wrapping up here in NYC, so it’s no surprise that the latest NYBG Floral Design alum to make the spotlight is so stylish. Brittany’s arrangements are gorgeous! Lush, delicate, elegant, and naturalistic—she’s certainly making the most of her NYBG training. ~LM

You wouldn’t call this minimalist art, would you? It’s rich, detailed. But so….mini

Lorraine Loots’ “Postcards for Ants” is an ongoing project in which she paints or pencils coin-sized, fully-realized pieces of art—one each day until she gives herself carpal tunnel, I suppose. Among the works are some stunning micro-vegetal creations that would give our botanical artists something to “oooh” over. —MN
