Wildflower Reports 2023

Where are the desert wildflowers blooming?

DesertUSA is predicting that we will have an excellent wildflower season this year.  Will it be a superbloom?  Time will tell.  Some of the best wildflower viewing areas have received a good amount of rain over the past few months.   We still have to see how the weather plays out in February.  If the early bloom in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in December indicates what is to come, this year’s displays could be phenomenal. 

To read the most current wildflower reports and to view photos, visit DesertUSA’s Wildflower Reports Reader’s send in reports with location information and photos throughout the wildflower season.
