California is about to experience some serious winter precipitation – more than it has received in the last decade, and that’s left wildflower aficionados spinning with the prospect of the spring wildflower bloom. There is no telling just how amazing it’s going to be, but if flowers are what you want to see, then you need to make a plan. There are a few prime spots that you will most definitely want to visit, so let’s get busy and take a look at them, shall we?
In the Desert
We know, the last place that you would think to look for blooming flowers would be the desert, but you need to believe it. Starting in early March, you can see more than 200 different plant species, all of which may be seen at the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park over in Easter San Diego County. Actually, if you happen to stop by this way, you’re going to find the biggest bloom in two decades. When you get here, walk the Borrego Palm Canyon Trail to see yellow brittlebush, among others.
If you’re hungry for more, Joshua Tree National Park should also have plenty of wildflowers at greater elevations. Don’t forget, the Joshua Tree will also bear white flowers, unseen anywhere else in the United States.
