Antelope Valley Wildflower Update 2/23/13

Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve SNR has a new wildflower report for 2/23/13

It’s been a very dry winter again this year, but after the recent late rains, there appears to be a good number of poppy plants starting to germinate. At this point they are very small), so their shallow young roots are vulnerable to freezes and heat waves. It looks like we will have a late season, so late April, early May MIGHT be our peak- we won’t know until it’s happening but that’s what happened last year after a similar winter.
