Desertwildflower.com is a community site where you can learn about flowers that grow in the deserts of the American Southwest. Compare your photos with flowers on this site for aid in identification or just browse around and enjoy the magical beauty of the wilderness. Find desert parks and other locations to visit, and read about cultural / historical uses of desert wildflowers and plants.  

I am a photographer, website builder, middle-aged botany student, and writer. Mostly I'm just a person who loves the desert, with or without wildflowers. This is not an ecommerce site and I am not focused on making money. I'm simply volunteering my time as a labor of love.

This is not a comprehensive listing of desert flora, but is a work in progress and the database is growing every day. If you have comments or would like to contribute anything to the site, please let me know!
