Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Wildflower Update 3/3/20

March 3, 2020: Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Wildflower Update

There are a few flowers blooming now in several areas of the Park. Although the fields of flowers have still not bloomed there are lupines and brittlebush along the roadside of county road S-22 on the east side of the Park. There are a few desert lilies near the entrance to the Arroyo Salado Primitive Camp. The Montezuma Grade, west of Borrego Springs is bright yellow with brittlebush. The mouth of Coyote Canyon at the end of the pavement of DiGiorgio Road has a modest spread of flowers.

Your best bet for blooms, however, is to walk the canyons and trails. Borrego Palm Canyon Trail is now open with plenty of flowers to see. Little Surprise Canyon, the Cactus Loop Trail in the north, and Bow Willow Canyon in the southern end of the Park are all good places to look for flowers.

We don’t know if there will be more flowers coming, and one local botanist is surprised that the flowers seem to be fading quickly. This week could actually be the peak, so come when you can and enjoy what you see!
