The park is at 17102 E. Ave. J in Lancaster. Mar 29, 2019
Super bloom visitors land helicopter on flowers - Ventura County Star
Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve said a pair of visitors had set a helicopter down Monday amid the fields of orange blossoms in Lancaster and then proceeded to walk around.
“We never thought it would be explicitly necessary to state that it is illegal to land a helicopter in the middle of the fields and begin hiking off trail in the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve,” officials said in a Facebook post along with the hashtag #Don’tDoomTheBloom.
“We were wrong.”

Here's the best way to reach the Lake Elsinore poppy fields on weekdays
A couple landed the helicopter and walked out onto the fields of flowers, the park said. When a law enforcement officer began approaching, the pair ran back to the chopper and flew away.
Staff members are working to identify the helicopter and its pilot, said Russ Dingman, a spokesman for the reserve.
“This could have been a serious incident. Luckily no one was injured,” he said.
Many of the state’s massive wildflower blooms run the risk of being destroyed by visitors. Last week, Lake Elsinore closed access to its poppy fields in Walker Canyon after throngs descended on the delicate blooms.
Order was restored over the weekend when the city put in place new rules to deal with rampant crowds.

The best new perennial flowers of 2019 - PennLive
New in 2019 is another ornamental onion from Illinois' Intrinsic Perennial Gardens that Sinclair Adam, director of the Penn State Trial Gardens in Lancaster County, believes might be even better.
Adam gave 'Windy City' a nearly perfect score in trials of it over the past three seasons at Penn State.
"It blooms very well and maintains a compact, uniform habit," he says. "It's a strong mid-season bloomer, and the bloom color is a bit stronger than Millenium."</p>
Like Millenium, Windy City blooms almost all summer long with golfball-sized blooms of violet-purple atop 15- to 18-inch stems.
It's also attractive to butterflies but not very tasty to deer.

Endangered Brodiaea plant produces ‘super bloom’ in hills above Glendora - The San Gabriel Valley Tribune
California poppy, as seen in record numbers in Hemet, Lancaster and Chino Hills.
Instead, the thread-leafed Brodiaea, as they are more commonly known, bunch in clusters of eight to 10, standing tall on thin, spindly, green stems, unfurling their star-like purple-striped flowers under the shade of an oak or amidst the shelter of the taller, beige-colored wild oat plants.
On Thursday, Croissant walked the lower meadow, explaining how the unusual plant deposits its seeds, known as corms, in the volcanic, clay soil during the winter unique to the Glendora hills. A bounty of rainfall grew the green leaves and stems, producing flowers three days before Earth Day, on April 19, she said.
“Here they come!” she exclaimed, pointing to a bunch in the middle of the tall wild oats. “They sneak up on you.”
Toward the south end of the 4-acre meadow, the bunches appeared more frequently.
“They look for a place to hide, like finding a companion plant,” she explained. That way they can be protected from ravenous deer. “They are survivors.”
Even the Colby Fire of January 2014 did not stop them. In fact, the ash from the fire helped enhance the soil, which helped the Brodiaea to germinate.
These Brodiaea filifolia in Glendora are the purest of the species, she said. They are pollinated by a bee fly, which keeps their DNA the same.
About 20,000 plants are thriving along the ridgeline above the Colby Trail. In Bluebird Canyon exist another 5,000 and about another 10,000 in another hillside canyon, she said.
The Colby Trail is open to the public during the daytime. Croissant reminds everyone to stay on the trails. “They are state and federally protected, so that means you could be arrested or cited for any kind of abuse to the plant,” she said.
The Glendora Conservancy is hosting a Brodiaea Month and is offering a special program on the plant on May 20 at the Glendora Library, with a lecture by Croissant and a video on the plant’s history. The plant is the city’s official flower.
Glendora is the only city in California with an endangered species as its city flower.

Proven WinnersAngelonia Angelface Perfectly Pink and Super BlueAngelonia, or summer snapdragon, takes a little longer than some flowers to start blooming.
