Spring Flowers, Spring Fashion

Vibrant flowers and pastel patterns are in full effect this Spring at Chaffey College. As the outdoors welcome us with turquoise skies and balmy temperatures, students, staff and Chaffey’s historical landmark invite the season with floral fashion and sundry coloration. With the Spring semester coming to an end, it may also help to stop and appreciate the calming nature of Earth’s treasures in order to ensure healthier brain function and inspire creativity.

Erythrinas, also known as Coral Trees, are tropical plants that can grow up to nearly 100 feet. They are commonly known for their abundant shade and nitrogen.

Although not native to North America (originally derived from South America), Pink and Yellow Trumpet Trees require minimal maintenance and flourish exclusively in the summer.

Poker Plants, or Kniphofias, are exotic South African plants containing spike-like features and vibrant colors. With an area of 2–3 feet, these succulent-like plants are hard to miss and likely to survive throughout Fall.

Hannah Orsini, a philosophy major, expresses Spring fashion in light-weight, flowy pants, reflective shades and a denim jacket.
