The Huntington Museum holds a long-running exhibition that draws on the rich heritage of wildflower illustration to take a closer look at California's natural and horticultural history.

Tracing the history of California wildflowers from wildness to eventual cultivation, this exhibit of drawings and illustrations focuses on the work and imagination of numerous horticulturists, botanists and amateur naturalists.

From the Huntington's website:

Among the highlights of the exhibition is the first-ever public display of the works of Clara Mason Fox, whose lively watercolors captured the plant life of Silverado Canyon in Orange County.

Check the Huntington website for more information.

Through July 8. The museum is closed on Tuesdays.
