Endangered Brodiaea plant produces ‘super bloom’ in hills above Glendora - The San Gabriel Valley Tribune
They look for a place to hide, like finding a companion plant,” she explained. That way they can be protected from ravenous deer. “They are survivors.”
Even the Colby Fire of January 2014 did not stop them. In fact, the ash from the fire helped enhance the soil, which helped the Brodiaea to germinate.
These Brodiaea filifolia in Glendora are the purest of the species, she said. They are pollinated by a bee fly, which keeps their DNA the same.
About 20,000 plants are thriving along the ridgeline above the Colby Trail. In Bluebird Canyon exist another 5,000 and about another 10,000 in another hillside canyon, she said.
The Colby Trail is open to the public during the daytime. Croissant reminds everyone to stay on the trails. “They are state and federally protected, so that means you could be arrested or cited for any kind of abuse to the plant,” she said.
The Glendora Conservancy is hosting a Brodiaea Month and is offering a special program on the plant on May 20 at the Glendora Library, with a lecture by Croissant and a video on the plant’s history. The plant is the city’s official flower.
Glendora is the only city in California with an endangered species as its city flower.

Highway wildflowers to appear soon
Carteret County. Greg Rayburn, transportation supervisor advanced for Carteret, Lenoir, Craven, Jones, Pamlico and Pitt counties said one bed will be near the stoplight going toward Emerald Isle from Cedar Point. Another point will be a long flower bed that runs next to the bridge in Cape Carteret. Near the Hardee’s and Ribeyes, he added, Gloriosa daisies may be coming up from last fall.LenoirOn U.S. 70 near the Wayne County line, Rayburn said poppies were planted along with purple larkspur flowers.And between roads near the Chevrolet dealership coming out of Lagrange, folks may see poppies and biden flowers later in the summer, a flower native to North Carolina.Also on U.S. 70 near exit 148, a bed of poppies and larkspur will be coming up.The mix of California poppies, red poppies and larkspur is used so often because the flowers stand up to herbicide treatments.“We’re restricted to one or two flower (species) in a bed because you know you’ll be dealing with certain weeds and will have to use certain herbicides.”CravenA long, narrow bed on U.S. 70 toward the Jones overpass and N.C. 41 will show off some purple larkspur flowers this spring. Last summer, sunflowers were planted in the location.Jones and PamlicoFor this year, Rayburn said there just wasn’t an appropriate place to plant wildflowers in Jones or Pamlico counties because the flower beds are usually about an acre.In fact, sometimes traditional sites for flowers have to refrain from planting to let the soil recover.“If you go by a bed and it hasn’t been planted, it might have been left out for rotation purposes,” Rayburn said.With 25 years of experience working with the DOT, Rayburn said he has seen changes come through the wildflower program.One of the specific challenges has been dealing with the Round-Up resistant pig weed, he said.“I’ve seen a lot of changes in the way we do the things we do but we still get the same end product,” Rayburn said.Vause, too, has been working roadside maintenance with the DOT for 21 years, so he has been involved with the wildflower program nearly the entire time.“My crew and I take a lot of pride in doing it and we enjoy hearing the positive feedback in what we do,” Vause said. “It’s one of our nicer programs.”Not only does the program add color to the roadway, Vause said visitors to the state usually enjoy the sights you can’t find in other states.“It’s kind of like a showcase for the state, when people come in they comment a lot of times how nice the flowers look,” Vause said.And, it puts a smile on their face when they drive by.“It does make everybody happy when they see it,” Vause said.A handful of native North Carolina wildflower species are used in the mix of species sown from fall to spring along highways throughout the state.Where they are planted, Rick said, is up to the environmental department for each district across the state, provided the acres meet criteria for wildflowers.“These areas typically have a little slope and face traffic so as to be seen by travelers,” Rick said.And although it is tempting to exit your vehicle and pick the flowers or snap some pictures, Rick said it’s best to enjoy the flowers as you pass by.“NCDOT does not advise getting out of vehicles to view wildflowers as safety is our highest priority,” Rick said.And leaving the flowers alone will allow others to enjoy them, too.To help identify the flowers or at least give you a better idea what’s ou...
