CA Fragrance Tour Outline

--------------------------



Fragrant Foliage:

----------------------Thinking about a scent class at Bay 



Natives as I research Jon Adams' Dial soap scented 



ceanothus: Ceanothus oliganthus var. soridiatus - Jimbrush



Elderberry leaves vs flavor and story about poisoning 



employee.



Solidago can be subtle to smell, tea is more obvious? 



taste/smell, tea/sniff



clear pallete?



goats sniff before tasting.



Tarweed bubble gum



Pitcher sage like bay leaf, not chopped into little fuzzy 



worms or ground into pocket lint.



Yerba Buena stuffed up your nose, tea, salads, dolmas...



salvia clevelandii flowers plucked for salads



Wild cucumber oral anaesthetic



good tarragon numbs the tongue

local tarragon sucks, must do cuttings from french



tarragon/stevia = licorice candy



taste the grapes

roger's red alacante bouschet is red-fleshed

grapes generally have no flavor besides sweet

good for flavoring other fruit juices



huckleberiies are the bomb



lemonadeberry/sugarbush



wild ginger edible?



vanilla grass



the smell of willows in a canyon in late spring



the smell of moss

mushrooms

healthy soil

lichens and clean air



redwoods and other conifers

lemony cypress

pinion pine, pine nuts



curry-plants: maple syrup/curry paradox



sages: artemisia/salvia

diff between coast sage, cowboy sage and mugwort?

tarragon tastes like licorice/fennel which is a completely 



different family

salvia: pineapple, sweet, skunky

...much to say about salvia scents?



coyote mint, penneyroyal, back to yerba buena



yerba santa like bubblegum (Madia) fresh but bitter like 



English tea when dried.



Woodmint/Stachys

South facing cliff in SF

Erysimum franciscanum is our local one, with fragrant creamy flowers. They all start with a dense rosette like Lewisia then bolt & flower and are somewhat short lived... but may re-seed.



Other suggestions for low non-pink plants for south facing Bernal cliffs:



Heterotheca sessiliflora

http://www.baynatives.com/plants/Heterotheca-sessiliflora/



Monardella are wonderful though bigger...



Sedum



Dudleya



Lessingia



Dichondra donelliana



Eriophyllum lanatum var. arachnoideum



Lomatium californicum -bigger but nice



Lupinus formosus or variicolor



Phacelia



Phyla nodiflora



Polygonum paronychia



Salvia sonomensis

Quail Habitat

Lupinus sp.



We don't have the L. arboreus and are short one L. formosus. I can add more albifron or 

variicolor or some Quailbush if you have room: 

http://www.baynatives.com/plants/Atriplex-lentiformis/



We have a bunch of nice Lotus, two local species & one from San Diego: 

http://www.baynatives.com/?SC=plant-list.php&fltr=lotus



We also have a nice clover too but it needs water:

http://www.baynatives.com/?SC=plant-list.php&fltrc=clover



http://bss.sfsu.edu/holzman/courses/Fall00Projects/Quail.html

"California quail are generalists and opportunists, so food intake varies by location and 

season. Their main food items are seeds produced by various species of broad-leafed annual 

plants, especially legumes. This includes plants such as lupine (Lupinus sp.), clover 

(Trifolium sp.), bur clover (Medicago sp.), and deer vetches (Lotus sp.) 

(Leopold 1977). Their bills are typical for seedeaters: serrated, short, stout, 

and slightly decurved."

Hedges

Toyon -nice full 2-foot 5 gal, good price, even better if you get more.

http://www.baynatives.com/?SC=plant-list.php&fltrc=toyon



Cherry -kind of slow but fun

http://www.baynatives.com/?SC=plant-list.php&fltr=prunus



Coffeeberry - clean & green, berries for birds, wild form maybe too tall

http://www.baynatives.com/?SC=plant-list.php&fltr=Eve+Case



Arctostaphylos densiflora 'Sentinel' -probably could be pruned, fairly slow

http://www.baynatives.com/?SC=plant-list.php&fltr=sentinel 

Edible

suggestions for edible berries:

http://www.baynatives.com/?SC=plant-list.php&fltr=Rubus+spectabilis

http://www.baynatives.com/?SC=plant-list.php&fltr=Amelanchier

-darn, we're out of those! we'll get more at some point:

Amelanchier alnifolia 'Martin' - Serviceberry    

Deciduous shrub to small tree with showy white flowers in 

spring, tasty fruit in summer. This cultivar is selected 

for the quality of it's edible fruit.



We do have the local species which is more drought tolerant and hard to find: 

Amelanchier utahensis though I can't vouch for the berry quality. 



Blue Elderberry



also out now but can get probably this week:

http://www.baynatives.com/?SC=plant-list.php&fltr=vaccinium

-slow but fabulously delicious



For cooking seasoning:

http://www.baynatives.com/?SC=plant-list.php&fltr=Lepechinia+fragrans



Sweet Cicely for an interesting woodland seasoning salads 

or perhaps desserts.
