I was searching for something fun for April Fool’s Day and discovered that many pranks have been played over the years in the botanical world!
In 1900, a German garden journal editor named a new species of cactus – only to forget his joke at the end of the year and catalog it!
In 1937, a storm blew willow tree branches to spell words!
For more info on these stories and many more, visit the Museum of Hoaxes.
Have a wonderful April Fool’s Day!
