Marin hike: Welcoming the flowers that bloom in the spring - Marin Independent Journal
The flower was first described by John Torrey, who is perhaps best known for the Torrey pine named in his honor. It was named for Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker, director of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, and friend of Charles Darwin and John Muir, who led him on a plant-seeking expedition in California. Look for Hooker’s fairy bells in the shade in Novato’s Indian Tree Open Space Preserve and Indian Valley Open Space Preserve, Mill Valley’s Blithedale Ridge, Steep Ravine on Mount Tamalpais and Shadyside Trail at Fairfax’s Bon Tempe Lake.
A personal favorite among shrubs that bloom in March is the lovely bush poppy. Almost everyone is familiar with our state flower, the California poppy, but fewer know the bush poppy, with its satiny yellow flowers. It can grow to 10 feet, but is typically 6 to 8 feet tall. Look for bush poppies in bloom on the Southern Marin Line Fire Road at the end of Crown Road in Kentfield, on the Matt Davis Trail on Mount Tamalpais not far from the junction with Hogback, and on Fairfax’s Rocky Ridge.
Miner’s lettuce is not yet flowering but the leaves are up. Native Americans looked forward to these early edible greens long before the 49ers realized they had enough vitamin C to prevent scurvy. The tiny white flower grows above a pair of fused leaves that appear to be one circular leaf. Leaves, stem and flowers are all edible.
In addition to eating this plant raw and cooked, various tribes discovered medicinal uses. The Shoshoni made a poultice of leaves for arthritis, while the Thompson tribe used it for sore eyes and the Mahuna people found the plant could stimulate appetite. It was brought back to Europe as a food crop in 1794 and having escaped from cultivation it now also grows in the wild. Benefits touted on the internet include being an antioxidant and a detoxifier that can eliminate heavy metals stored in the liver.
Just think of all of these plant blooming weeks before the official first day of spring! Wishing you a happy spring equinox on March 20.
