Theodore Payne Foundation for Wildflowers and Native Plants
The great news from the Wildflower Hotline at the Theodore Payne Foundation for Wildflowers and Native Plants is: "Continued wet weather has literally saved the 2006 wildflower season. Look for local Southern California mountains to provide a bountiful display during the months of April and May." The foundation sells plants, seeds, and planting guides; and holds events and classes. You can also sign up for their e-newsletter.
