Anza-Borrego Region Wildflowers 2/19/19

Anza-Borrego State Park reports

With almost seven inches of rain since July, we anticipate widespread bloom of flowers in late February and early March. Some flowers are blooming along S22 east of mile marker 30, in response to heavy fall rains in that area. Heavy rains this week may allow many plants to grow larger before blooming, extending the season.

Lots of variables affect the extent of the spring wildflower bloom. For a good synopsis of what to expect this year, click here for a forecast from former Park Superintendent Mark Jorgensen.

Botanical Wanderings – California  has the following report from Anza-Borrego Wildflowers Guide

North of Devil’s slide in the Ocotillo Wells SVRA.
The flower fields are stunning and will get better.
It may well surpass what you find in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
WARNING: This is 4×4 high clearance only.
