IRG 161 June 2023

Polygonatum is a widespread temperate genus with approximately seventy-five species centred in the Eastern Himalaya and Indo-Burma biodiversity hotspots. Aaron J. Floden PhD, is one of the experts in this genus and gives us an oversight of those species in his collection, as first published some time ago in the SRGC Forum.  There are further posts from others in the Forum thread, with comments and identifications made by Aaron – these can be seen by clicking here:  https://www.srgc.org.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2033.0

Aaron J. Floden, now based in Missouri at the northeast edge of the Ozark Plateau where he is the Flora of Missouri Curator at Missouri Botanical Garden, has many scientific papers to his name, including many on the likes of Trillium in the United States. He has proven a reliable resource for queries to the SRGC Forum over many years and is generous to share his time and knowledge.

Bobby J. Ward has let us know this sad news -  Will Hembree, who wrote about hiking the Appalachian Trail with his dad which was  published in the March 2020 issue of the IRG ( http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/logdir/2020Mar261585255661IRG123.pdf) died in a traffic accident in late July 2023, age 30.  He was working in the Great  Basin in Nevada. A rising star lost too soon,  like Nick Courtens. 
We send condolences to his family and friends.  A terrible loss of such a fine young man.

Read a fine obituary, here: https://www.jhoytthomas.com/obituary/william-hembree?fbclid=IwAR2-fA3jc5gxP5fu3gj7FnJ3yZoEy4RzFI6ZFZ9CvLK6C_NtKRp-b1fpuTo



Bobby wrote : Will Hembree and his dad hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2019. In February 2020, Will gave a talk about the hike to a joint meeting of the Piedmont Chapter of the North American Rock Garden Society and the Friends of the JC Raulston Arboretum. With Will's permission, the lecture was recorded and archived on the JCRA YouTube site here .   


Will at  his talk at the JC Raulston Arboretum


Will's audience

 From Carson Trexler:

"This one hurts. Will Hembree, died last week in an accident that has left everyone stunned and at a loss for words. He was 30.
Will was the senior conservation horticulturist of Atlanta Botanical Gardens, responsible for the safeguarding collections of the most critically endangered Sarracenia for one of the largest and most accomplished conservation programs in the US. He was a capable master of his craft, educated at Longwood, and a worthy custodian of these special ex-situ projects. 
When I visited ABG last year he was a bright and respectful host, absolutely full of life. I looked forward to meeting him again at ABG. His charisma, humility, and competence were praised in life by all who knew him. In death he is deeply mourned. His is a loss to conservation and to carnivorous plants.
Rest in peace!"


Will Hembree, December 2021

IRG 163  August 2023

This issue  begins with an article from Gerrit Eijkelenboom on his favourite genus - orchids - this time from the  island of Samos. The photos shown with this are from Gerrit’s trip in Spring 2023. Also in this issue are descriptions of new galanthus hybrids developed by   Anne Wright in Yorkshire. Anne is an expert propagator by means of bulb “chipping” and has generously shared her method for this in IRG 118 of October 2019.

It is our pleasure to pay tribute to the famous Latvian botanist, Jānis Rukšāns following his seventy-seventh birthday and the milestone of around sixty-five years involvement with collecting, breeding and growing bulbs. Jānis has a farm 80 kilometres northeast of Riga, where he has amassed what is probably the world’s largest collection of ornamental bulbous plants.

IRG 166 - November 2023
First article this month is about the intriguing tulip from Kazakhstan – famed for its deeply furrowed foliage – Tulipa regelii. Frazer Henderson travelled in search of this unique tulip and was successful in seeing it in habitat. 

Already recognised for his general horticultural nous, following visits to his garden in Eskilby and his trips to Scotland where his methods and talks drew great praise, Peter Korn, along with Julia Andersson, has made a fantastic garden of experiment and innovation at their Klinta Garden, further south in Sweden. Here he writes about "Growing in Sand"

IRG 168 - January 2024

A delight this month to begin the new year by having both new species and new cultivars introduced in the International Rock Gardener. Three new tulips from central Asia are described by Jac J. de Groot and B.J.M. Zonneveld. Jac J. de Groot has a new book “Tulips and their Natural History” to be published in March 2024.

N.B.  Please note that line four of page 6 should read :1 picogram = 10-12 g).
 

Saxifrages, in all their guises, are popular for their compact nature with fine foliage and flowers. Adrian Young, Saxifraga Registrar, and dedicated curator of the marvellous national collection of saxifrages at Waterperry Gardens in Oxfordshire, sends notes regarding some new Saxifraga stolonifera cultivars. As well as other events at Waterperry, there is an annual Saxifrage Day, which in 2024 will be Saturday 25th May.
