Wildflowers

Chuparosa (Justicia californica)

April 27, 2019

Although the show of annual wildflowers is over, shrubs, trees, and a few cacti are still blooming at the Visitor Center. Palo Verde trees and spiny desert senna are blooming with abundant yellow flowers. Ocotillo are still looking great in many locations! Check out Blair Valley and Little Blair Valley, on highway S-2, for yucca and agave. Higher-elevation Culp Valley may still have annual flowers in bloom.

Day Use Fees: developed campground areas and Visitor Center $10 per car, every day.

If you would like to receive updates next year as different wildflowers start coming into bloom, we suggest that you check back here, or join the email list of our nonprofit partner, Anza-Borrego Foundation.

You can also call our Wildflower Hotline at 760-767-4684.
