Wildflowers are starting to bloom. Here’s where to see them in the Bay Area and California - San Francisco Chronicle
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.
“We’re currently enjoying the purple pops of Douglas iris,” State Park Ranger Nick Turner said.
At Point Reyes, the Chimney Rock Headland can be legendary — 90 species of wildflowers can provide a coronation of spring. But winds out of the northwest and warm temperatures faded the bloom. Chimney Rock and the nearby Point Reyes Lighthouse are still enough of a draw that the Park Service is enforcing a visitor quota on weekends past the turnoff at Drakes Beach Road.
At Marin County Parks, the best prospects are at Loma Alta, Baltimore Canyon, Ring Mountain and Mount Burdell, Passantino said. Ring Mountain Preserve, off Paradise Drive in Corte Madera overlooking the Tiburon shore, can be spectacular, she said.
“Expanses of goldfields, tidy tips and other early bloomers make for a spring classic,” Passantino said. “The multicolored flowers provide a foreground for spectacular views of the bay.”
East Bay hills
Hikers at Mount Diablo State Park have been sharing their wildflower sightings through the Mount Diablo Interpretive Association. Pockets of California poppies are often sighted along North Gate Road and Summit Road. The vicinity of Murchio Gap, accessed from Eagle Peak Trail or Bald Ridge Trail, often has the widest variety. Blooms include poppies, silver lupine, Pacific pea, periwinkle and larkspur.
Across the 75 parks in the East Bay Regional Park District, the best for wildflowers are Black Diamond, Anthony Chabot, Sunol and the Briones-to-Diablo Trail.
Of these, Black Diamond Regional Preserve, south of Highway 4 near Pittsburg, ranks No. 1 — the Stewartville Trail can be one of the best shows around in early April. Lupine, paintbrush, Ithuriel’s spear, blue dicks and owl’s clover are among the sightings.
“Wildflowers are out and seem to be close to normal, even with the dry year,” said Dave Mason at park headquarters. “April is the best time year to see wildflowers in regional parks.”
Santa Clara County
This has been a good spring for yellow mustard and California poppies across the foothills above Santa Clara Valley. At headquarters for Santa Clara County Parks, Tamara Clark suggested Calero, Santa Teresa, Coyote Lake and Grant County parks.
Every April, a wild card is Almaden Quicksilver County Park, south of San Jose. The Mine Hill Trail can be a spectacular show, and early April can be best for monkey flower. Other common early arrivals can include lupine, poppies, buttercup and if you’re lucky, shooting stars.

Here are which wildflower seeds to plant, where to buy them - Record Searchlight
If this is the case you might consider using a non-native erosion-control mix that contains rye grass and crimson clover. These tend to sprout up quickly, even now when soil temperatures are cooler, have some flowers and are affordable. They may require a bit of weed whacking in the spring but usually do not produce a lot of heavy grass or become invasive in non-irrigated sites. These seed mixes can be found locally at feed stores — including Palo Cedro Feed or Hawes Farm Supply — and some landscape supply places.Another common reason for planting wildflowers is to support native insects and pollinators. In this case you will want to plant a California Native wildflower mix that is formulated for the Central Valley — more specifically for pollinators. The Central Valley mixes contain plants that will germinate in the spring and flower before the soil dries out and the plants die back.A couple things to consider when planting a wildflower mix is the cost per planting area, and if the mix contains plants that are toxic or have sticky seeds that will pose problems for livestock and pets.Seeding rates for wildflower mixes range from nine to 20 pounds or more per acre, so be sure to check the planting rate per acre before purchase. This may not be as much of a concern if you are planting a smaller area, but the cost can still very a lot between seed mixes.If livestock might be grazing on the area you are planting, you will want to avoid mixes containing lupine or butterfly weed. These are poisonous if ingested.Also some mixes may contain plants that produce seeds that stick to the coats of pets or your socks, such as forget me nots.California has several online sources for bulk native wildflower seed. Some native plant nurseries have more custom mixes such as a butterfly mix or a foothill mix. Hedgerow Farms in Winters sells native grass and wildflower seed including a custom mix of central valley pollinator wildflowers.Other bul... Oct 15, 2020
The Artists Giving New Life to Fake Flowers - The New York Times
The New York City artist Livia Cetti, 47, shapes tissue paper into spotted lilies, purple-black hollyhocks and sprays of clover under the name the Green Vase. She studied at the San Francisco Art Institute, working in flower shops along the way, and becoming a (live) floral stylist at Martha Stewart. Cetti sells her stems — made from a special crepe or tissue paper that she bleaches or dyes herself — at John Derian, the home décor shop in Manhattan’s East Village. The Berkeley, Calif., artist Anandamayi Arnold, 45, makes everything from pomegranates to irises (rhizome included) covered in richly hued crepe paper. Her decorative blooms also double as party favors: The hollow insides hold secret trinkets like friendship bracelets and stickers.Then there’s Sourabh Gupta, 30, who grew up in northern India, and who constructs his microscopically detailed blooms — Queen Anne’s lace, lady’s slippers and hellebore anchored in distressed terra-cotta or stone pots — in his Brooklyn studio, using everyday materials: Petals are made from paper towels hand-painted with food dye, coffee and tea; stamens are made from kitchen sponges. Boulder, Colo.-based Stephanie Redlinger, 39, a former graphic designer who launched her paper botanical atelier, the Florasmith, in San Francisco in 2015, considers her flowers and the mushrooms she has perfected, made primarily from crepe paper embellished with materials like sand, “as botanical portrait or homage” — realistic but with an emphasis on each creation’s essential quirks, such as a poppy’s wrinkles. The paper artist Zoe Bradley, 47, whose studio is in Cowbridge, near Cardiff, Wales, takes a more abstract, performative approach to her flowers. She began her career at the fashion house Alexander McQueen, where she built wooden legs and fan-shaped corsets for one of the designer’s elaborate runway shows, and her psychedelic-meets-origami blossoms, which she creates from stiff metallic paper, have been displayed in the windows of London stores including Liberty and Harrods.And then there’s Tiffanie Turner, based in Fairfax, Calif., who is widely acknowledged as the progenitor and doyenne of the new generation of paper-flower makers, teaching popular workshops on the subject. She shows her work in galleries and museums, like the a... Sep 7, 2020
Master Gardener: A butterfly garden | SteamboatToday.com - Steamboat Pilot and Today
They may like the untended surrounding area that has plenty of shelter and undesirable plants like dandelions and clover. Or perhaps the small drip irrigation system installed last summer brought the butterflies. Given regular water, all the plants have grown thicker and taller, with bigger and longer-lasting blooms.Watching butterflies lingering in my flowerbed is a treat. With more research and a bit of work, I hope to attract more butterflies to my garden next year. Vicky Barney gardens for wildlife and is a member of the Master Gardener Class of 2011. Mar 19, 2020

What needs to happen for a good bloom: Lots of rain.If the best happens: Visitors can gaze upon orange California poppies spread across the park’s 1,700 acres. Also lupine, cream cups, goldfields, owl’s clover and yellow daisy-like coreopsis. This year, you’ll see patchy areas of blooms, not a carpet like last year. Visitors now can see “belly flowers” such as pygmy-leaved lupine, red maids and tiny white forget-me-nots.Watch out for: Dehydration. It’s high-desert grassland, so drink plenty of water. Give rattlesnakes space. Carpool if possible. Watch for visitors who may be photo-focused and oblivious to cars.
