Marin hike: Welcoming the flowers that bloom in the spring - Marin Independent Journal
I missed many of them during the lockdown last spring. By now, I’ve welcomed the early bloomers such as shooting stars, milkmaids, buttercups, hound’s tongue and laceleaf sanicle, and I’m on the lookout for the March bloomers.Photo by Wilma FolletteStriped coral roots begin blooming in March.
Many people associate orchids with the tropics, but they actually grow on all continents except Antarctica. California has about 70 native species, including the striped coral roots that begin blooming in March. Native orchids are not as showy as the species marketed in grocery stores and florist shops, but they have a delicate beauty all their own that I find even more enticing.
In Marin, we have two species of coral roots, striped coral root and spotted or summer coral root. Coral roots are mycotrophic, meaning that instead of doing photosynthesis, they parasitize mycorrhizal fungi under the ground to get food, water and nutrients. The mycorrhizal fungi, in turn, are getting nutrients from a plant that can photosynthesize, but this is not a parasitic relationship since the fungi help the plant to obtain minerals and water. Pollination of coral roots is still being studied, but so far scientists have discovered that pollinators include... Apr 4, 2021
Wildflowers are starting to bloom. Here’s where to see them in the Bay Area and California - San Francisco Chronicle
Matthew Green, a chief ranger for the California State Parks Sierra District. He recommended the Buttermilk Bend Trail along the South Yuba River.
On the other hand, many renowned destinations for wildflowers have fizzled this spring.
Death Valley National Park, a spectacular showpiece two years ago, received only 0.38 inches of rain at Furnace Creek this winter. Field scout Linda Stremel said she saw perhaps six wildflowers in four days on her visit last week to the park.
Another landmark site, the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve in the San Joaquin Valley, received only 2 inches of rain this winter, rangers said. The hills are faded brown with no poppies and only a light sprinkling of red filaree.
Though Daffodil Hill near Sutter Creek (Amador County) remains on the radar for many, the owners closed it, likely permanently, two years ago after a crush of visitors and illegally parked vehicles blocked access roads for emergency vehicles.
Wildflowers are always a wild card, dependent on timing, soil moisture, temperature, wind velocity and direct sun. Those factors form a matrix that can ignite or stifle blooms.
“Please add a note to stay on trails and do not trample on or pick the flowers,” advised Passantino at Marin County Parks and Open Space.
That said, here are the best prospects in the Bay Area.
San Francisco Peninsula and coast
San Bruno Mountain State and County Park just south of the San Francisco County line has provided excellent diversity in a year where explosive blooms are less common, said Carla Schoof at San Mateo County Parks.
At San Bruno Mountain, more than 15 species were identified last week, she said, including California poppy, lupine, blue dicks, fiddleneck, Douglas iris and Indian paintbrush, but also wallflower, yellow rocket, sun cups and footsteps of spring.
Edgewood County Park in Redwood City has also provided a good sprinkling of color, Schoof said. In the past week, rangers identified Henderson’s shooting star, California manroot, California poppy, Fremont’s death camas, Pacific hounds’ tongue, warrior’s plume and tomcat clover.
In northwest Marin, the Douglas iris blooms can be a showstopper, and the best bets are around Limantour Beach at Point Reyes National Seashore and Tomales Bay State Park.
