Don't limit your choices when planting spring-blooming bulbs
Can you tell me the name of the spring-flowering native bulb with tall stems and blue flowers? W., Tacoma
A. You must mean the native Camassia or quamash, a 2-foot-tall spring bloomer native to the mountain meadows of the Cascade Mountains.
This deer-and-rodent-resistant bulb was an important food source for Native Americans and the early pioneers. Now you can order the bulbs from commercial growers in the Netherlands so native meadows will not be damaged by plant poachers.
The camassia is blue in the wild but the starry flowers now also come in pink, white and a shorter variety with variegated foliage called Camassia Blue Melody.
Unlike most spring-flowering bulbs the Camassia likes a bit of moisture in the soil, even during the summer months. Casmassia bulbs can be found for sale at local garden centers now or you can order the different varieties from a bulb grower online.
Time to spread the garden gossip on this native plant. Camassia blooms, although tall, colorful and impressive don't last very long. Mine were in flower for less than a week last spring but the yellowing foliage persisted for months.

The power of flowers: Donna Clark brightens residents' days with beautiful blooms
Market near Pike Place Market in Seattle, which was the first assisted living facility in the state.
When Clark and her husband moved to Northeast Tacoma from the Seatac area, she started visiting residents at Avalon, 135 S. 336th St.
One of the residents she visited often talked about how much she loved flowers, so Clark started bringing some from her own garden to the woman.
Soon her flower deliveries grew – just like her garden, which is comprised primarily of dahlias.
"It is just my passion," Clark said of visiting the residents and delivering flowers. "It is something that makes me think of the little things. Sometimes when you have given up a lot of other things like your home and you don't really have a lot of say of what goes on in your life, it just comforts the person that receives the flowers."
Delivering the flowers gives Clark a chance to visit with the residents.
"Most of the people I have been giving flowers to have vases," she said. "I don't do the arrangements here at my house. I take the flowers there in buckets. If the people are able to, I let them choose (the flowers). … They will often talk about what kind flowers they grew and which kind they like the best. Or they tell you stories about what their husband did to their flowers, if they ran over them or something."
Although she primarily delivers flowers to women, there are a few men who receive the blooms.
"Sometimes the men want them to give to staff," she said.
Clark said it is rewarding to give back to the community and encourages others to do the same.
"Just the joy of seeing people when you walk in the door," she said. "(They say) ‘Oh, I am so glad to see you, so glad you came."
The staff at the care center also enjoys Clark's deliveries.
"They love that," she said. "They love the flowers. Often they will ask what are the flowers, because they don't know or they will ask where I got them."
Clark said she plans to continue delivering flowers as long as she is able.

Tre Flowers impresses in debut, could be second Seahawks rookie in 2 years to win starting job at corner
Related stories from Tacoma News Tribune
Flowers has the potential to be the second Seahawks rookie in two years to earn a starting role at cornerback. Shaquill Griffin, who shifted to left cornerback this season after Richard Sherman's departure, did the same last year.
But winning a starting job isn't Flowers' immediate priority - he just wants to play again next week, and in the weeks after.

Regional spring floral festivals will bloom soon
The daylong parade, with 180 entries of floats, marching bands and marching and mounted units is set to begin at 11th Street and Pacific Avenue in Tacoma April 7 at 10:15 a.m. It will make its way through Puyallup at 12:45 p.m., Sumner at 2:30 p.m. and Orting at 5 p.m.The military has a tradition of participation in the parade, according to Capt. Cain Claxton, public affairs officer with the 593rd Expeditionary Sustainment Command, which has been part of the parade for as long as he can remember.In previous years,
America’s I Corps Band and the 593rd ESC have led the parade. It’s not known yet if the band will participate or if the military will lead the parade, Claxton said; however, whatever role they play, service members will participate in at least the Tacoma and Orting portions of the event.That’s because the unit is community partners with Tacoma and Orting, so it’s important the 593rd ESC is involved, Claxton said.“We really enjoy getting out in the community and sharing the Army story,” he said. “Right now, the Army story is all about readiness. We’re ready to deploy, fight and win — whenever that’s needed.”The theme for this year’s parade is Daffodil Paradise. Floats in the parade are decorated with thousands of fresh cut flowers and resemble the daffodils grown in the Puyallup Valley for at least the past eight decades.The Queen’s Coronation event also is a highlight of the Daffodil Festival. It begins March 31 at 7 p.m. at the Rialto Theater, located at 310 S. Ninth St. in Tacoma. The Queen is selected from 23 young women princesses, from schools across the region, who make up the Royalty Court.More information on the Daffodil Festival and Parade is available on the website: the daffodilfestival.org.Another floral festival worthy of note in the Northwest is the Skagit Valley Tul...

Happy Birthday, Jackie Salyers
Young Puyallup tribal woman slain by police bullets was lovingly remembered on her special dayBy Matt Naglematt@tacomaweekly.comOn Thursday, Sept. 28 a very special birthday was celebrated with all the happy trimmings one would expect – but with a touch of melancholy as well. Gathering at Sawyer Park that evening, family and friends of Jacqueline Salyers, and many who never even knew her, brought flowers and cheerfully colored balloons, festively decorated cupcakes and songs to fondly remember this young Puyallup tribal woman whose life, and that of her unborn child, were cut short by a police officer’s bullets in the early morning hours of Jan. 29, 2016 at the very site of her birthday gathering that evening. Jackie would have been 34 years old on this birthday.A drum circle assembled to begin the evening, with Puyallup tribal member Clinton McCloud leading a Love Song then a Power Song. Once the sun set, a candlelight march commenced to her roadside memorial near the park. Those who wished to do so wrote messages to Jackie on balloons and the sweet scent of sage perfumed the air, the smoke carrying everyone’s loving thoughts up to the heavens.Jackie’s uncle, Puyallup Tribal Counci...
