Joshua Tree Wildflower Update 2/20/12 – Updated 2/23/12

Updated 2/23/12

Joshua Tree National Park just posted a new wildflower report:

“Early flowers are blooming in the southern area of the park, between the Bajada Nature Trail and Cottonwood Visitor Center, and beginning to spread into the Pinto Basin. Red chuparosa and yellow bladderpod flowers are visible along the road in this area, and many other species may be seen in the washes. The translucent white flowers of desert blazing star are especially abundant.
Recommended trail for flower-watchers is Mastodon Peak, a three-mile moderate loop, starting from Cottonwood Spring.”

To see the full report which includes detailed location and abundance of each species that is in bloom go to: http://www.nps.gov/jotr/planyourvisit/upload/bloom_report.pdf
