Anza-Borrego Wildflowers 2/20/18

Anza-Borrego Desert Natural History Association reports

A recent trip to the desert impressed by the abundance of Chuparosa in flower in Plum Canyon and Glorietta Canyon, especially Plum Canyon.  Lots of the germination at the southern end of the Coyote Canyon Jeep Trail, across from the citrus groves. May be two or three weeks away from flowers, but we will have some flowers for visitors to see this season.  

On a wider scale, we have not had the rain this winter that gave us the widespread super bloom last year.  Unless there is a major storm in the next few weeks, this flower season will consist of more dispersed blooms, pockets of flowers here and there, wherever the ground moisture holds  enough water to support the annual plant growth.
