HMNS wants YOU! Vote On Our New Corpse Flower’s Name


BY Alex Wang [ July 19, 2011 at 04:40:56 ]

HOUSTON—This time last year, Lois the Corpse Flower was raising a stink—and now, it’s her brand-new roommate. Over a thousand people contributed name ideas for our newest little leaf, donated by CultureMap, the home of @CorpzFlowrLois tweeter @stevenjthomson who received the Corpse Flower as a gift after Lois’twitter identity was revealed.

“Honestly, I’m flattered that over 1,500 entries rolled in to honor the newest addition to my greenhouse family,” said @CorpzFlowrLois. “With such lovely options, it will be difficult to fulfill my role as evil older sister. Wish me luck!”

Background: CultureMap staff generously donated the flower to the Houston Museum of Natural Science, so it could receive constant skilled care from the Museum’s horticulturists.

The staff at HMNS decided the new addition needed a name. Since the Houston community was so much a part of Lois’ July 2010 bloom, Museum staff decided to seek Houstonians’ input. From June 30 – July 15, members of the public left their suggestions as comments on a post on the Museum’s blog.

The plant inspired a mass of creative names—from suggestions based on television shows, a comic book couple, an animated stinker, Greek mythology, the space program, literature, world languages, current events, a very hungry musical plant, and even Lois herself. A panel of judges, including HMNS staff and @CorpzFlowrLois herself, selected the top five names from over 1,500 that were submitted: Clark, Audrey, Delilah, Hermann, and Violet.

Now, HMNS needs the public to help finalize the new flower’s name. Vote for your favorite on Facebook or via Twitter. Then, come see the flower on display in the Cockrell Butterfly Center beginning July 18. Details are available on the HMNS Blog.

The winning name will be announced on the anniversary of Lois’ bloom: Monday, July 25 at 10 a.m.

The Houston Museum of Natural Science—one of the nation’s most-heavily attended museums—is a centerpiece of the Houston Museum District. With four floors of permanent exhibit halls, including the Wortham IMAX® Theatre, Cockrell Butterfly Center , Burke Baker Planetarium and George Observatory and as host to world-class and ever-changing touring exhibitions, the Houston Museum has something to delight every age group. With such diverse and extraordinary offerings, a trip to the Houston Museum of Natural Science, located at 5555 Hermann Park Drive in the heart of the Museum District, is always an adventure.
