Arizona Wildflowers 3/4/17

DesertUSA has the following Arizona Wildflower updates

White Tank Regional Park March 2, 2017 – photos of Poppy bloom and Lupine

Highway 60 goldpoppies increasing along the drive from Miami through Claypool towards Globe and the San Carlos Apache reservation; watch for no less than four different shades of gold/yellow on the East side of Globe at the Taco Bell intersection of highways 60 & 70 – goldpoppies along with Yellow Bladderpod, London Rocket and also tall nodding Wallflower.

Poppies, lupine, desert hyacinth, and heliotropes are blooming at Apache Wash Trailhead (Phoenix Sonoran Preserve). The hills have swatches of poppies and they also can be found along the trails, especially Apache Wash Loop and Ridgeback.

Foothills below the Pinal Mountains have the first Freckled Milkvetch (astragalus); Yellow Evening Primrose, and clusters of white flowers on Mexican Elderberry (Sambuca). I’m told this will be the peak weekend for color at Peridot Mesa on the San Carlos Apache reservation – watch for more unusual varietals along highway 60 on your drive through Globe-Miami.

Catalina State Park and there was a nice variety of wildflowers.
