Plant a variety of blooms to help bees in lean times - Albuquerque Journal
People may run into city ordinances if they let their yards grow wild, so make them functional,” said Andony Melathopoulos, a bee specialist with Oregon State University Extension. “Make them into an attractive feature of your landscape while also making them into better pollinator habitat.”Pollen is the only protein that bees eat.ADVERTISEMENTSkip................................................................They can’t survive without it, nor can they raise their broods.Bees also collect nectar from flowers, using it to build their energy reserves while storing it briefly in their stomachs, where enzymes turn its sugars into a diluted honey.Early spring can be one of the leanest times for pollinators, especially bees, Finneran said. “Cold, windy weather hinders long flights of some of our traditionally strong flyers,” she said.You often see bees working in early blooming minor bulbs such as squill, or in an assortment of groundcovers, she said.“Later in fall, we see a decline in resources, especially for bumblebees,” Finneran said. “Fall-blooming sedum, hyssop and snake root will offer these species food that will help them survive the winter.”Eye-catching landscape design might be personally satisfying, but pollinators don’t care how your garden looks, Finneran said. Just offer them nutritious plants that bloom successively through the seasons.“Design is a personal thing,” she said. “I have seen pollinators chasing a maintenance truck filled with spent sedum blooms.”For more about how to deal with pollinator nutrition gaps, see this fact sheet from the U.S. Forest Service: fs.fed.us/wildflowers/pollinators/gardening.

Bend writer highlights Oregon’s flower power - Bend Bulletin
Every wilderness fanatic or casual day hiker enjoying Oregon’s nature trails has noticed a beautiful flower or unusual plant somewhere along their journey and wondered, “What is that?” “Wildflowers of Oregon: A Field Guide to Over 400 Wildflowers, Trees, and Shrubs of the Coast, Cascades, and High Desert,” is a new field guide by Bend naturalist, writer and photographer Damian Fagan that can help answer that question. Fagan will discuss his book at an event Aug. 10 at Roundabout Books in Bend.
“Wildflowers of Oregon” is a paperback guide that uses color photographs and some of the most recently updated technical botanical data to identify the most common (and some rarer) flowering plants found across Oregon. The book is organized into six chapters based on each flower’s color, making it easy for non-botanists to use. Within each color grouping, plants are then ordered alphabetically by their scientific family name while also listing their most widely-used common name. Each entry includes a color photograph, short physical description of the plant and its key characteristics, plus details about its bloom season, habitat and range. “I also try to include information with each of the plant descriptions that I think people would find interesting,” Fagan s...

American-grown fashionable flowers on display: See Oregon's floral portrait - OregonLive
By Janet Eastman The Oregonian/OregonLive Posted June 30, 2019 at 08:49 AM Updated June 30, 2019 at 02:09 PM
There’s so much we don’t know about florists. People who handle flowers for a living -- which also includes seed and bulb producers, growers, designers and sellers -- have a blooming sense of humor.
How else to describe botanical bras and other fashion pieces woven with fronds, berries and buds grown in the U.S.?
For the fifth year, the petal promoters who organize American Flowers Week in the days leading up t... Jul 26, 2019
Beargrass and yucca: two signature Montana plants - Valleyjournal
Its growth is luxuriant and continues green all winter but the horses will not eat it.”
During their long winter at Fort Clatsop in Oregon, Lewis noticed the Clatsop Indians making baskets. He recorded: “Their baskets are formed of cedar bark and beargrass so closely interwoven with the fingers that they are watertight without the aid of gum or rosin; some of these are highly ornamented with strans of bear grass, which they dye of several colors and interweave in a great variety of figures; this serves them the double purpose of holding their water or wearing on their heads.”
It is for the construction of these baskets that the beargrass becomes an article of traffic among the natives. This grass grows only on their high mountains near the snowy region: “The young blades, which are white from not being exposed to the sun or air, are those most commonly employed, particularly in their neatest work.”
Of the beargrass samples collected on the expedition, two still exist: one at the Lewis and Clark Herbarium and the other at the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew near London.
Also called “soapweed,” “Spanish bayonet” and, as we have just learned, “beargrass,” yucca blooms from a low cluster of long, pointed, spikey leaves. During the growing season, a tall stalk will emerge and produce large numbers (10 to 15) of substantial, 2.5-inch-long, greenish-white, bell-shaped flowers.
Look for yucca in June or July, and while we associate them with dry prairie slopes or in badlands, these very hardy plants are known to thrive at elevations of 8,500 feet and survive winters of 40 and 50 degrees below zero. Hot sun and well-drained soil are this spikey plant’s friends, and only a very wet winter will damage it. Because cattle like the fleshy flowers and young seedpods, slightly greater amounts of yucca will be found where grazing pressure is light or moderate. And beware while hiking: the tips of the leaves are as miserable to bump into as a cactus.
Native Americans of the plains used yucca roots for making soap and hair tonic. The central stalks, flowers and seedpods were eaten, and the spiny sharp pointed leaf tips, often with the tough fibers still attached, served as ready-made needles and threads.
Y. glauca was first described for science in 1813 by the famous English botanist-naturalist Thomas Nuttall. Yucca is a native Haitian name, and glauca means “blue-green” in botanical Latin. Here in Montana, we have always considered beargrass to be the yucca of the mountains and yucca to be the beargrass of the plains. Luckily we are blessed with both.
We thank Wayne Phillips, a recognized expert on Montana’s plants and flowers, for his insight on these plants in his great book “The Plants of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.” This work belongs in everyone’s library.
