Anza-Borrego Wildflowers Guide

  • February/23/2020 Ella Wash East Loop
    We immediately rescheduled our trip to Coachwhip to check out a spurge posted on iNaturalist.
    This might be a Euphorbia ocellata arenicola | Contura creek spurge, but looked different from our previous find.
    Our previous find is now gone, only the skeleton remains, maybe in another year.
    Still an interesting area to visit, a lot of bloom originated from a October 2019 rain.
    A lot of big flowering Hesperocallis undulata | Desert lily around.
