The Desert Botanical Garden’s Wildflower Info Site returns to provide up-to-date reports on desert wildflower blooms in central and southern Arizona. The site, a collaborative effort by 21 parks and gardens, is live during the months of March and April at www.dbg.org/wildflowers

Wildflowers blooms are unpredictable. There is no way to accurately predict from year to year whether or not spectacular blooms will occur. The Wildflower Info site takes the guess work out of finding wildflowers in Arizona. Based on the lack of rainfall this year, scientists and horticulturalists at the Garden are predicting a minimal wildflower bloom in nature for spring 2014.

In the Phoenix Metro Area, Wildflower Info Site participating parks and gardens include: Desert Botanical Garden, South Mountain Park, Usery Mountain Park, White Tank Mountain Regional Park, Estrella Mountain Regional Park, Cave Creek Recreation Area, Spur Cross Ranch Conservation Area, and Thunderbird Conservation Park.

In areas near Phoenix, participating parks and gardens include: Agua Fria National Monument, Tonto National Monument, Boyce Thompson Arboretum, and San Tan Mountain Regional Park.

In western Arizona, participating parks and gardens include: Kofa National Wildlife Refuge and BLM – Colorado River District (Lake Havasu).

In southern Arizona, participating parks and gardens include: Picacho Peak State Park, Tucson Botanical Gardens, Saguaro National Park East District, Saguaro National Park West District, Tohono Chul Park, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument and Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.
