Anza-Borrego Wildflowers 4/17/18

Anza-Borrego State Park reports on April 17, 2018

With only about an inch of rain this winter, conditions have not been good for a very impressive display of annual wildflowers this spring. But at the Visitor Center, ocotillos are still blooming, and a careful observer can find a few cactus blossoms here and there. Our palo verde trees are starting to show their delightful yellow flowers, and the desert willow has gorgeous purple-and-pink orchid-like blooms!

A drive along Highway 78 west of Tamarisk Grove campground is worthwhile, for the agave stalks in bloom there.

Day Use Fees: developed campground areas $10 per car, every day; Visitor Center $10 per car, Fri-Sat-Sun and Holidays.


If you would like to receive updates as different wildflowers start coming into bloom, we suggest that you check back here, or join the email list of our nonprofit partner, Anza-Borrego Foundation.
You can also call our Wildflower Hotline at 760-767-4684.
