Blooming Now

The following plants are known from historical records to flower this month. However, flowering season always depends on climate factors, especially rainfall and the timing of when those rains arrive. If springtime temperatures are above normal, it may kill tender seedlings so keep this in mind. In general, the low elevations (Sonoran, Chihuahuan deserts) bloom the earliest with the higher elevations (Mojave, Great Basin) to follow. Happy hunting!
