Native California Wildflowers

Southern California is a wildflower heaven. We have lots of flowers which bloom in great abundance, and we have lots of rare flowers. Please remember, it is illegal to pick any wildflower in California. It is illegal to take a blossom, or a whole plant, or a seed, or even a leaf. The only things you are allowed to take are memories and photographs.

There is a patch of Chocolate Lilies which I know of. Many years ago this was a strong patch. But one of the local people would come every few days and pick a couple blossoms for her house. Now, the patch is decimated. That is what one rude person can do. We have 30,000,000 people here. If each person started picking flowers, soon we would not have any flowers. Please, even if you see a million of them, do not pick the flowers!!
