McGee Creek Wildflowers July 7, 2019

We went to McGee Creek and found the flowers to be very good. We didn’t get much more than a mile is as there was a lot to see and we took many photos. Favorite flowers were Panamint Beardtongue/ Penstemon floridus var. floridus and Mojave Prickly Pear. There was lots of vibrant Sulphur Buckwheat, Mule’s Ear, Lupines and at least 2 Red Paintbrushes. We also saw Bolander’s Locoweed in fruit, Wooly-pod Locoweed in fruit and lots of Whitney’s Locoweed both in flower and colorful inflated fruit often on the same plant. Other plants we saw were Prickly Phlox, Desert Peach in fruit, Gayophytum, a Phacelia that had finished flowering, Red Penstemon P. rostriflorus, an Orobanche, Blue Elderberry, Few-flowered Wooly Star, Interior Rose, Single-stemmed Groundsel,Hawksbeard, and Snowbrush Ceanothus.
