How to pick (and arrange) your own bouquet at Lancaster County's flower farms [photos & video]

Drive down a country road in Lancaster County and it’s not uncommon to see bright bouquets of flowers for sale next to fresh produce.At several of these farms, you can be the florist and pick your own bouquet. While some types of flowers already have bloomed and won’t be back until next year, many of these farms will have flowers through October.Old Homestead Farm in Ronks has long raised flowers for bouquets at its farm stand on Hartman Bridge Road and at markets in the Philadelphia suburbs.This year, Jenelle Peters, the farm’s director of sales, moved the flower patch closer to the farm stand and opened it up to the public, which can pick flowers for 50 cents a stem. Members of the Old Homestead Farm’s community-supported agriculture program can pick flowers for free.“I thought it would be cool for people who aren’t able to grow their own or just want to grab a couple of stems here and there for this and that to be able to come and grab something,” says Peters, who represents the fourth generation working at the...

Endangered Brodiaea plant produces 'super bloom' in hills above ...

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.AdvertisementOn 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. (The San Gabriel Valley Tribune)

Ventura County super bloom: 'Get out there soon'

Desert State Park has a wildflower hotline set up for people to call; and huge crowds have converged on the Antelope Valley Poppy Preserve in Lancaster.Locally, more visitors have caused fewer issues, since the bloom isn’t hyper-focused on any one location.“Here it is interspersed throughout the whole Santa Monica Mountains,” said Craig Sap, superintendent for the Angeles district of California State Parks.He was in Point Mugu and Leo Carrillo state parks over the past week, finding chocolate lilies, poppies, lupines and blue dicks in bloom.As far as the variety of wildflowers, this is the best Sap has seen in recent years.“Right now, we're at the perfect moment for giant coreopsis,” he said of the bright yellow flowering plant that favors some of the steep hillsides near the coast.See more:Ani Yeremian, a native Southern Californian, recently hiked in the Lake Elsinore area in Riverside County, “which was beautiful.”“But it feels like it’s more here,” she said, standing at the foot of the Ray Miller Trail in Point Mugu State Park.That could be because of a fire that tore through the parkland four years ago.In May 2013, the Springs Fire swept over the canyons, leaving little but scorched ground in its wake.“The kind of bloom that you’re seeing right now we generally see the year after a fire,” Algiers said.While some flowers bloomed earlier, the drought delayed much of the response. “So several years later, you’re seeing a bloom that you would expect to see the year after a fire,” Algiers said.“It’s pretty amazing,” he said, looking up at the tall golden hill behind him.img itemprop="url" src="https://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/5fc7b97f74d2745ccd915a3239b184e6e5710cd8/c=454-0-3802-2517&r=x408&c=540x405/local/-/media/2017/03/30/Camarillo/Camarillo/636264356864486059-Wildflowers-in-bloom-3.jpg" alt="Joseph Algiers, restoration ecologist with the Santa" width="540" height="405" data-mycapture-src="https://www.gannett-cdn.com/media/2017/03/30/Camarillo/Camarillo/636264356864486059-Wildflowers-in-bloom-3.jpg" data-mycapture-sm-src="https://www.gannett-cdn.com/...

Eager crowds are flattening Southern California's vibrant 'super bloom'

Bloom where you’re planted” wrote a man who was photographed lying on his back with crushed petals next to his head.Lancaster’s massive field of golden flowers has been popular on social media in recent weeks, and the effects are starting to show.At least two new “paths” have emerged at the reserve from people’s continuous steps, and workers have had to add signs telling visitors to stay on the trail and to watch out for wildlife, a park employee said.Meanwhile, at Walker Canyon in Lake Elsinore, visitors have turned dusty highway shoulders into improvised parking lots. The area has few trails but offers plenty of flower-covered hillsides to amble through.“We even had folks parking on the freeway,” Lake Elsinore city spokeswoman Nicole Dailey said. “The land abuts the 15 Freeway so they’re taking it upon themselves to pull over to the shoulder.”Commuters have reported hour-long traffic jams because of the cars exiting into the canyon, she said.A wave of visitors to Anza-Borrego State Park in San Diego brought similar issues last month, said Kathy Dice, the park’s superintendent.“This was the first super bloom where we experienced the power of social media and the Internet,” Dice said. “This really drove our numbers beyond anything.”At the peak of the rush, some guests parked their cars on the side of the road or private property and left trash behind, she said.“That was the downside of the flower bloom,” she lamented. “The vast majority of people were great, but there are people who don’t behave properly.”But not every park with a super bloom has shared the fate of those in Southern California.At the Carrizo Plain National Monument in the Central Valley, a record number of visitors swarmed the park over the last month to see the best bloom in recent memory — but they also managed to behave, said Serena Baker, a spokeswoman for the federal Bureau of Land Management.The visitor center had more than double its average guests over the weekend, and drivers eager to see the flowers filled the parking lot or stopped on side of the road leading into it, Baker said.Despite the crowd sizes, people have been courteous and respectful, she said.“People have been really good; we’re really proud of them,” she said.aside class="trb_embed" data-content-size="large" data-...
