It's time to stop and smell the wildflowers - Kenai Peninsula OnlineTuesday, June 27, 2017
It’s easy to find yourself among the wildflowers in Alaska.The approach of summer solstice brings peak wildflower season on the Kenai Peninsula. The roadways are already brightened by the deep purple of the lupine. It’s hard, though, to predict exactly when the bloom will reach its height.“The question will be when they peak this year,” Kenai Wildlife Refuge Park Ranger Leah Eskelin said. “I wouldn’t even be able to put my finger on it because it’s different throughout the peninsula.”Eskelin said she saw all the wild roses and Labrador tea flowers out by the Swanson River in full bloom Monday and she saw the same in the Skilak area this weekend.“Those flowers are all blooming and then, here, around town, nothing,” Eskelin said.But the wildflower wait will end soon, leading to a wide array of flowers that create a palette of color.Alaska’s state flower, the sky-blue forget-me-not, can be found in alpine meadows, or as written in the margin of the 1917 bill that approved the flower as the Alaska Territory’s official floral emblem — “a lit... http://peninsulaclarion.com/outdoors/local/2017-06-15/it-s-time-stop-and-smell-wildflowers

Movement pushes local, American Grown flowers - Vancouver Business JournalMonday, May 08, 2017
States. A series of intimate dinners that showcase locally-sourced ingredients and craft beverages, petals and blooms are the guests of honor on this tour that stretches from Virginia to Florida to Alaska. Each event is a sellout as over 100 guests are treated to a pre-dinner mixer, farm or greenhouse tour, floral demonstrations by experts in their craft, a multi-course meal and a flower-packed goodie bag as a parting gift. Last November, Holland America Flowers hosted a Field to Vase dinner in their greenhouse in Woodland and attendees were invited to join Dobbe on a behind-the-scenes tour of his facility.“These dinners are very well attended and a great way to get the word out with intimate stories (and) connection with the public,” Dobbe said. “We also believe very strongly that it (American Grown branding) will help to boost the sales of the American-grown product and that is very encouraging and I am very optimistic and committed to this effort.”Comments comments...

Floral on fleek: Top three trends from an Atlanta florist - Georgia VoiceTuesday, April 04, 2017
Holland 12 months in the year, South America 12 months a year under glass. Seasonally, once the spring gets here, we get flowers that are grown locally here in the metro area all the way up to Alaska. Probably the most requested flower by brides is a peony. They peak at Mother’s Day. If a bride is getting married say in August and she wants that look, then we can turn around and we can show her examples of garden roses called peony roses, which have that form and shape, but they’re a rose. You still have the feel of that big, fluffy flower.”...
