Already, you should be able to see the vibrant purple blooms of the Coachella Valley Milkvetch, an endangered plant in our desert ecosystem. The, also purple, hairy sand-verbena (Abronia villosa) and the pretty, white dune primrose (whose flowers open in the evenings and close by morning) often are blooming by late January. The desert sunflower is also already making its appearance and turning the dusty fields surrounding Palm Springs golden with its cheerful yellow hue.
One way you can enjoy the beauty of this year’s wildflowers is to celebrate at the Coachella Valley Wildflower Festival, which is held on Saturday, March 4, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Santa Rosa & San Jacinto Mountains National Monument Visitor Center in Palm Desert. There will be guided hikes and wildflower viewing in addition to activities for the kids and live entertainment. To learn more about the Coachella Valley Wildflower Festival call (760) 862-998.
It’s an amazing time of year to visit Palm Springs, with wildflowers popping up and endless sunshine; it’s the perfect place to relax and enjoy nature’s beauty.
