Sagehen Creek Camas Lilies

Rob took his puppy smoke out Sagehen Creek this week and says the Camas lilies are yet to bloom.  What a dramatic difference from last year.  The blooms were fading fast by May 25, 2009. Though still looking good.

We received a huge load of wonderful native plants including 3 species of easy to grow monkeyflower, 6 species of native lupine, Incense Cedar, Twinberry, Currant, Thimbleberry, Wild Strawberry, Wild Rose, Elderberry, Columbine, Arrow-leaf Balsamroot and more from hardy Truckee seed sources.  Dozens of other species from local Lake Tahoe and Plumas County seed as well.   The Villager Nursery collects seed throughout the west and has lots of great plants contact grown for our garden Center and our clients.

The wildflowers should be spectacular this spring with all the late moisture and the delayed-melt snow pack.  Our consolation prize.  We'd better get out and enjoy it.
