Edible flowers: fragrant, tasty treats | The Real Dirt - Chico Enterprise-Record
Many annuals and perennials produce flowers with culinary potential. Roses (rosa spp.), lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) and apple blossoms are well-known perennials with edible flowers. Borage (Borago officinalis), calendula (Calendula officinalis), garden sage (Salvia officinalis), scarlet runner bean (Phaseolus coccineus), nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus) and pansies (Viola x wittrockiana) are perhaps the best-known annuals that can be used in this way.Before eating any flowers make sure you have properly identified them as being edible. Since many plants have similar names, always use the scientific name when choosing a flower for an edible purpose. If you are not sure, do not eat them, because many flowers are poisonous or toxic. You should also be certain that the flower is free of pesticides and herbicides. For a detailed list of edible flowers, consult the following online document: https://extension.colostate.edu/docs/pubs/garden/07237.pdf.
Edible flowers have been used in cooking for thousands of years. During the Victorian era candied flowers were used in salads, sweets and pastries. Rose water and orange flower wa... Mar 29, 2019

On 24th April 1963, Princess Alexandra of Kent married Angus Ogilvy at Westminster Abbey with a retinue of royal guests in attendance. The bride chose a small bouquet of spring flowers which included camellias and jasmine. In the language of flowers, camellias signify admiration while jasmine means contentment.
Lady Helen Windsor, July 1992, Windsor

Lady Helen Windsor, who married Timothy Taylor on July 18th 1992 at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor, was an unusual royal bride. She opted for pastel shades for her flowers rather than the more traditional whites and creams. The end result was a pretty posy of pink roses, cornflowers and lavender. In the language of flowers, pink roses mean grace and joy while lavender symbolises devotion.
Interestingly, Lady Gabriella Windsor was a bridesmaid at the wedding of her cousin, Lady Helen, and wore a garland of country garden flowers in white and blue in her hair and carried a posy in similar shades. Whether that, or any of the Kent wedding bouquets, will influence her own choice remains to be seen. All will be revealed in May when a new chapter in the history of Kent royal brides is written.

Master Gardeners: Serve these flowers with meals
Calendulas should be planted in fall or early spring and do best in full sun, and are easy to grow from seed.Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia): This fragrant small shrub has flowers that are used to make wands and sachets. The purple flowers can be used to flavor jams and jellies, stews or vinegar, or used in a tea to calm the nerves. Easy to grow in a dry, well-drained, sunny location.Bee Balm (Monarda didyma): Easy to grow, low maintenance and drought-tolerant once established. This perennial sparkles in the summer with shaggy heads of tight tubular scarlet, pink or purple blossoms. The flowers can be scattered on salads, used as a garnish, or steeped to make Bee Balm teas. Bee Balm flowers have a citrusy flavor.Johnny-jump-up (Viola tricolor): This flower blooms profusely in the fall and spring with little care in sun or shade and self-sows. It has small yellow, white and purple flowers (thus the name tricolor). Flowers have a slight wintergreen flavor. They make a pretty decoration for salads and desserts or in a punch bowl. A prized edible that can also be candied or frozen in ice cubes.The best time to harvest flowers is in the morning if possible. Wash them quickly in cool water, shake them out and dry them on a paper towel. If you won’t be eating them right away, store them between damp layers of paper towels in the refrigerator. Flowers are very fragile, and best added to the plate at the very last minute so that they don’t wilt.Fresh flowers can lend color and a festive atmosphere to food, but not just any flowers will do. They won’t get by on their looks if they have a bitter taste, and you certainly wouldn’t want to garnish your meal with anything toxic. Finally, be sure to explain to children that not all flowers can be eaten, just the special ones, such as those mentioned above.The Shasta Master Gardeners Program can be reached by phone at 530 242-2219 or email email@example.com. The gardener office is staffed by volunteers trained by the University of California to answer gardeners' questions using information based on scientific research.Read or Share this story: http://reddingne.ws/2qck1FQ...

Singleton: What trees are flowering in February?
Water well until established.Another great native Florida tree is the chickasaw plum, prunus angustifolia. Clusters of tiny and fragrant white flowers cover this deciduous tree while still leafless. A rounded mass of thin, thorny branches will later support small leaves and red fruit ripening to yellow — a treat for many native wildlife. Occasionally trained as a single-leader tree, the most available form is a multi-trunk small tree used as a specimen. Think of the size of a really large shrub, up to 20-feet high and just as wide. It would be an appropriate size under power lines. Once established, this tree will tolerate drought but does poorly in alkaline soils. If you don’t know your soil pH, an inexpensive soil test is available through the University of Florida IFAS with instructions at http://soilslab.ifas.ufl.edu.The Hong Kong orchid tree, Bauhinia blakeana, is the only species in the genus Bauhinia that is not potentially invasive. This particular cultivar (cultivated variety) is sterile, so it will not reseed itself in natural areas unlike its cousins variegata and purpurea, as noted on the UF/IFAS Assessment of the Status of Non-Native Plants in Florida’s Natural Areas (Fox et al. 2005). The seedless blakeana species is highly prized for its 6-inch rich reddish-purple, orchid-shaped flowers in winter, but is susceptible to freeze and most well suited for warmer micro-climates in our hardiness zone 9B. With a mature height of 20 to 40 feet and spread of 20 feet, this medium-size grower can be trained for a uniform shape to make a nice specimen or parking-lot tree for full sun.The golden trumpet tree, Tabebuia sp., is not cold hardy in zone 9A (northern Lake County) unless protected by a warmer microclimate but they are frequently seen as mature, healthy trees in Lake’s lower regions of zone 9B. It blooms a brilliant golden yellow on bare stems, litters the ground in a blanket of yellow flowers reminiscent of the bell of a trumpet in shape and glow. Several species of Tabebuia have yellow blooms and others bloom pink. This tree has a quirky, asymmetrical growth habit and would be considered small to medium in mature size at 15 to 30 feet. The yellow species typically have a corky, furrowed bark that adds a lot of textural interest to the landscape. Native to tropical regions of the Caribbean, Bahamas and Central and South A...

Florists deliver love on Valentine's Day
I haven’t seen you for a year. So I love that part,” said Diane.Schumacker delivered roses to Deanna Mangus at her office at Current Orthodontics in Roseburg. Mangus was not expecting them.“My husband has sent me roses only one other time, so yeah, I’m surprised,” said Mangus.Schumacker said Parkside expected to make about 200 deliveries on Tuesday.“We try to get everything loaded before we go home the night before. But we do get a lot of last-minute orders, and that’ll make us kind of shuffle and get them out as fast as we can,” said Schumacker.But before the day is over, they expect to have all those flowers in the hands of sweethearts all over the county.Now they will start preparing for Mother’s Day, which is their second largest delivery day of the year.
