Protect flowers, US court tells feds
Bureau of Land Management in Colorado and Utah, Rio Blanco County, Uintah County in Utah and several state-level agencies in Utah, the Sentinel previously reported.
The proposed plan would have provided 300-foot buffers between plants and surface disturbances and caps of 5 percent and 2.5 percent, respectively, on surface disturbance in Graham’s and White River beardtongue conservation areas.
“The court faulted the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for failing to explain why the agreement would not simply leave the beardtongues in the same ‘precarious state’ in 15 years as they were in when FWS proposed listing,” according to a press release from the conservation groups. “The court also found that FWS did not base its decision solely on the best available science, as required by the ESA.”
“The science here is clear, these wildflowers must be protected from strip mining and drilling,” said Megan Mueller, senior biologist with Rocky Mountain Wild, in a press release. “We urge the Fish and Wildlife Service to get it right this time and provide protections under the Endangered Species Act.”
Tuesday’s ruling also states that all parties must meet in person before Feb. 21, 2017, to discuss whether the conservation agreement “may be modified such that Plaintiffs can agree that it will adequately protect the beardtongues for the foreseeable future.”

The newest farm-to-table trend: fresh-cut flowers
The most recent Field to Vase Dinner was on May 21 at the Texas Specialty Cut Flowers farm in the Blanco area, just east of Austin. Before dinner, guests were treated to a tour of the flower fields as they sipped regional wines.
Farm owner Frank Arnosky described the ups and downs of life on a flower farm. He pointed out that the variability of Texas weather, the challenges in finding skilled staff, and the volatility of the market are the same whether the crop is tomatoes, peaches or zinnias. Despite the difficulties, it’s clear that the Arnosky family finds life on a cut-flower farm satisfying.
After the tour, dinner was served for more than 200 guests in a bright blue German-style barn next to the Arnosky flower fields. The long tables were adorned with flowers picked straight from the farm. Chef Sonya Coté of Coté Catering in Austin served a gourmet meal of local foods — grilled pork chops with peach relish, Marfa tomatoes and sautéed curly kale, and roasted root vegetables seasoned with opal basil and pomegranate.
The Austin Field to Vase Dinner is now a happy memory, but you can sign up for future dinners across the country by visiting americangrownflowers.org and subscribing to information on future Field To Vase Dinner Tours.
What you can do now
The Fourth of July is coming fast. This would be the perfect time to show your patriotism and your support of local flower farmers by purchasing red, white and blue flowers with the Certified American Grown logo on the flower packaging.
If you don’t see this logo, ask your grocer or florist to add locally grown flowers to their offerings. You can also search for local flower farmers and florists by visiting slowflowers.com and searching by ZIP code, city or state.

Calvin Finch: 19th annual Festival of Flowers is Saturday.
Back to Gallery
The 19th annual Festival of Flowers, running Saturday at the Alzafar Shrine Center on Loop 1604 between Stone Oak Parkway and Blanco Road, is a “real” gardening event.
Do not attend if you are interested in hot tubs, combination windows or burglar alarms; they won’t be there! There are some gardening accessories on sale, but mostly the agenda is plants and gardening practices through the ambitious program schedule and over 50 exhibits. Expect to leave the Festival of Flowers with information, new ideas and plants.
The San Antonio Water System has been one of the co-sponsors of Festival of Flowers since the beginning. Part of its contribution to the event is to provide every attendee a xeriscape plant for his or her landscape.
This year one of the giveaway plants will be Asclepias tuberosa, a native milkweed that provides an attractive bloom for the garden and nectar for the monarch butterfly. SAWS is generous in the number of plants it distributes, but the free plant giveaway only lasts as long as the supply of plants does.
The program of speakers is always a highlight of Festival of Flowers.
I will lead off the agenda at 9:30 a.m. to cover “Attracting and Producing Butterflies in your Landscape.” The presentation will include some discussion of the Monarch butterfly initiatives.
At 10:30 a.m., Pam Penick, author of “The Water-Saving Garden: How to Grow a Gorgeous Garden with a Lot Less Water,” will discuss the topic of her book. Horticulturist Skip Richter will discuss the topic of his new book “Natural Pest Control Techniques” at 11:30 a.m.
Daylilies are called the perfect perennial by some gardeners. Ray Elizondo, Master Gardener and daylily expert, will present “Growing Daylilies in San Antonio” at 12:30 p.m.
In the afternoon, the popular Organic Roundtable led by nurseryman and radio host Bob Webster will be reconvened. Webster’s team will include John Dromgoole, owner of the Natural Gardener Nursery in Austin and one of my favorite radio gardeners.
There is also the opportunity to participate in the Herb Kitchen. The demonstration will include area cooks preparing simple recipes all day that emphasize the herbs we can grow in the San Antonio area.
If you want to learn about floral design, seek out the Floral Design Challenge and Demonstrations. For do-it-yourselfers, Master Gardener Lou Kellogg is conducting a “Build Your Own Rain Barrel Class.”
If these gardening presentations aren’t enough to keep you busy, look for the “Daylily Show and Sale” and the “Plants that Thrive ... (San Antonio Express-News (subscription))
