April 14 2021 Rebecca reports: Hillside Daisys are starting to pop-up in very small, scattered spots, Goldfield patches are starting to fade, Thistle Sage still in very isolated areas, no Owl Clover anywhere…bush Lupine starting to fade. Perennial Bush Coreopsis in full bloom in isolated areas. The grasses are mostly a silvery yellow color with small patches of green…very beautiful even though flowers are very few.

When will the desert wildflowers bloom? We start our report in January, plan your visit to coincide with the peak of the bloom - keep up to date with DesertUSA's Wildflower Reports. Be sure to bookmark this page for weekly updates.

Note: Spring is one of the most beautiful times of the year in the desert, but it can also be a time for caution. Rattlesnakes lie dormant during the cold fall and winter months and awaken from hibernation in the warm months of March and April. Another reason to stay on the trails.
