2017 Southern California Wildflower Reports
Feb 27, 2017 Robin reports: Santa Rosa Plateau - Feb 25, 2017 The plateau is very green still. Flowers are present, but not plentiful. From the Vernal Pool trailhead, I did a short afternoon loop along the Trans-Preserve Trail, Ranch Rd, Adobes, and the Vernal Pool trail. Blooms spotted included chocolate lilies, milk maids, buttercups, shooting stars, blue dicks, ground pink, and a few others I could not identify.

Feb 17, 2017 Victoria reports: Chino Hills State Park. There are quite a few patches of blooming poppy, Beautiful! From Chino Hill gate, go along the paved road, when you see the 2 hydro towers, walk up toward the two hydro towers on the right hand side, when you walk up the hill, turn left towards the hydro tower, continue to go, until you see a bush of trees on the left side, then walk through it and you will see the blooming flowers down the hills.
Feb 17, 2017 DUSA reports: Carrizo Plain National Monument has received a good amount of rain this year and that should result in a good wildflower season. Look for wildflowers in early March, we will update when we get some more reports in the next few weeks.
