Anza-Borrego Desert Wildflowers Updates 1/23/19

Anza- Borrego State Park reports on January 23, 2019
With only about 3 inches of rain since July, we anticipate widespread bloom of flowers in Febraury and March.  Some flowers are blooming along S22 east of mile marker 30.

 

Anza-Borrego Desert Natural History Association  reports Current Conditions    Looking for flowers right now?
Although there are no vast “springtime-like” blooms taking place at this time, there are a number of areas that do have flowers, and that’s very unusual for this time of year.  There are also several areas, not yet with flowers, but beautiful as the desert turns green from recent rains.  Check out our map page to see where these places are located.

In the Borrego Badlands area, we have reports of areas with blooming of, dune evening primrose, verbena, brown-eyed primrose, and other species.  These are in the vicinity of Ella Wash and Arroyo Salado and along S22 in that area.  These are all flowers we would expect to see four to six weeks from now.

Another area to explore is in the vicinity of the Buttes along San Felipe Wash, where there is a area of dune evening primrose in bloom.

 

California Wildflower Report has a new post with ten photos of wildflowers blooming in Borrego Springs Area
