This year the most vibrant wildflower bloom in two decades is expected over the next week or two in the Anza-Borrego Desert, located just two hours east of San Diego. The same rains that drenched San Diego this winter are turning the barren desert floor into a carpet of color.
Since December, nearly 6 inches of rain have doused the desert twice as much as last year. Our California drought might finally be over. All that rain has sprouted dozens of species of wildflower plants, and their bright colored buds are beginning to open.
One of the classic color plant you will see is the dune verbena, it can cover the entire field in purple! The sweet fragrance of the flowers will be delightful!
The best place to see the flowers is near the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Visitor Center. The center offers maps for self-guided wildflower tours and a Wildflower Hotline 760.767.4684 and provides daily updates.
