Spines, Thorns, Prickles, and Beyond
2:30 p.m.–3:30 p.m.
Join Sean Lahmeyer, plant conservation specialist at The Huntington, as he takes a pointed look at spinescence in the gardens. In his illustrated lecture, Lahmeyer journeys through The Huntington's living plant collections to spotlight the different external defenses—some of which will surprise you—that plants use to protect themselves. A plant sale follows the program.
