Wildflowers are starting to bloom. Here’s where to see them in the Bay Area and California - San Francisco Chronicle
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.
“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.

When to Plant and How to Treat Bulbous Flowers - About Manchester - About Manchester
Summer-blooming bulb flowers
This group of plants includes Lilies, Lycoris, summer-flowering Camassia, Allium, etc. In some cases, it is possible to plant species with a later flowering period in early spring, having previously organized a cooling period for them. However, you need to understand that in this case we are using forcing methods, which means that the flowering of tulips and hyacinths will be shorter, and the bulb will be weaker.
3) Non-hibernating bulbous flowers
It should be said about the bulbous and corms that do not survive cold weather. These are such plants as Gladiolus, Tigridia, Ixia, and others. They are also planted in spring, and they bloom, as a rule, in late summer and autumn. This is because they need lots of sunny days to bloom. For this reason, some species may not have time to bloom in some areas until frost. The solution is early spring growing when the bulb is planted in a pot indoors, and when the threat of frost has passed, it is moved to the garden.
After flowering, you need to take care of tulips. Bulbous plants need watering during the growing season and good drainage during the dormant period. Spring-blooming flowers can be additionally fertilized in autumn. However, you should be careful because bulbous plants also suffer from overfed. Good luck!

Gardening: Time's right to plant bulbs for spring flowers
Scilla, another favorite of mine, are a deep purple, and look down. Small, but intense.Last year I planted several Camassia, a late-spring or early summer blooming bulb plant. They were wonderful! Each plant produces a few flower spikes that are two or three feet tall and are covered with blue or purple florets. Very dramatic. They are hardy to Zone 4. Unlike most bulb plants, they do well in wet or moist soils in winter.Alliums are in the onion family, are wonderful, and are not bothered by rodents. Some are huge, with balls nearly a foot wide that are airy and open, filled with little florets. The big ones can be expensive ($4 a bulb or more) but last a long time and are very dramatic. Even a half a dozen big ones will make a statement.So get off the couch, get outside and plant some bulbs. Come spring you’ll be sending me an e-mail saying how glad you are that you did.— Henry Homeyer's blog appears twice a week at dailyuv.com/gardeningguy. Write to him at P.O.

Don't limit your choices when planting spring-blooming bulbs
A. You must mean the native Camassia or quamash, a 2-foot-tall spring bloomer native to the mountain meadows of the Cascade Mountains.
This deer-and-rodent-resistant bulb was an important food source for Native Americans and the early pioneers. Now you can order the bulbs from commercial growers in the Netherlands so native meadows will not be damaged by plant poachers.
The camassia is blue in the wild but the starry flowers now also come in pink, white and a shorter variety with variegated foliage called Camassia Blue Melody.
Unlike most spring-flowering bulbs the Camassia likes a bit of moisture in the soil, even during the summer months. Casmassia bulbs can be found for sale at local garden centers now or you can order the different varieties from a bulb grower online.
Time to spread the garden gossip on this native plant. Camassia blooms, although tall, colorful and impressive don't last very long. Mine were in flower for less than a week last spring but the yellowing foliage persisted for months.
