The Huntington calendar page for 8 June 2017, describes the acquisition of this remarkable Cycad collection: In 2015, The Huntington received a donation of 620 cycads from the estate of Loran Whitelock, a passionate local plantsman. The gift nearly tripled the number of these rare plants in the botanical collection. Gary Roberson, head gardener of the cycad collection, discusses the herculean task involved in transporting, documenting, and transplanting the Whitelock cycads, which now grace a long ribbon of landscape stretching east and west along a ridge above the Jungle Garden.
