Collecting Wildflowers for Floral Arrangements
Living in Southern California, we are so fortunate to have hills covered with wildflowers in the springtime.
We live at the bottom of the San Gabriel mountains, so it is only about a 30-minute drive to find wildflowers.
Unfortunately, I know this is not the case for all of you.
When we forage, we are careful to choose areas where it is legal to trim a few branches, as there are many areas where you are not allowed to cut the wildflowers.
If you’re lucky enough to call California home or looking for a flower-filled adventure, look no further than the California Native Plant Society’s guide to finding wildflowers.
Experience the beauty of nature’s vibrant flora with stunning poppies, mustard plants, and lupines. Be inspired for your next bouquet or take a day trip to immerse yourself in their breathtaking sight.
The possibilities are endless with California’s diverse and awe-inspiring wildflowers.
My advice to you is always to have your eyes open, go for a hike, and do some research to see if there are local areas near you that have wildflowers.
Always have clippers and bags in the car, as you never know when you will have that perfect opportunity.
