The Gorgeous Flower Farm In Northern California That Will Take Your Breath Away
Calling all gardeners and anyone who is looking for a lovely spring bloom! There is a jaw dropping Northern California garden located in Amador county where you can stock up on gardening supplies and learn about what you can grow in your respective climate. Most importantly, however, you can take in the beauty of this incredible flower farm.
The Amador Flower Farm is nestled in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley among wineries and the historic towns of the Motherlode.
Thousands of species of daylilies grow here on the fourteen acres of gardens, which include the growing grounds, a potted plant area, and four acres of landscaped demonstration gardens.
The daylily is a revered flower that has been a favorite among gardening enthusiasts and professional horticulturalists for centuries.
There are thousands of varieties of this stunning perennial.
The tulip-like plant originated in Asia but has been a favorite flower in the U.S. and England since the 1930s and has changed quite a bit over the years.
This one is called Cameroon Nights.
Here's a Lovely Purple and White Lily.
The Flower Farm offers many other plants and flowers for you to enjoy and even take home for your own gardens, however.
It's a community gathering place as well! There's no better time to visit than the spring, when the garden comes alive with beautiful sights and smells.
There was a fun egg hunt on Easter, but if you visit soon you can still experience the wonder of this season.
You will fall in love with the fresh rows of bright, cheerful flowers. Even if you aren't a gardener, you'll still find the whole experience very pleasant.
You can take a picnic lunch and spend the afternoon here. It's about an hour's drive from Sacramento, so really take your time if you make it out this way.
In addition to the lovely flowers and cute little bees like this one, there are also 300 year old oak trees to relax under in the shade.
The farm is owned by the Deavers, and when Jeanne Deaver met her husband Ken, she retired from her banking world in the big city and joined Ken here in Amador County in the Shenandoah Valley where she promptly started her own daylily growing business, Amador Flower Farm.
She opened the farm in 1996, and while she does sell daylillies and gardening supplies for a profit, she charges no admission fee.
Visitors are encouraged to stop by with their family and friends and walk through the gardens and enjoy the local wildlife.
California's previous drought didn't faze the farm. Fortunately, daylilies are a drought tolerant plant and as the nursery industry in the west adjusts to drier conditions, Jeanne’s daylily farm has been able to help its customers convert their water hungry landscapes to more water-wise gardens. The nursery is also focusing on succulents with many new varieties being added this year.
All in all, this farm going experience is like nothing else and something all nature lovers should go check out at least once!
