The Desert Botanical Garden’s Wildflower InfoSite is active each spring during March and April. The Garden partners with Arizona’s parks and gardens to provide you with a guide to where the wildflowers are blooming. This year, we are also inviting our social media followers to share with us where they are finding wildflowers in Arizona!
Share your wildflower photos with us on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram and include #dbgwildflowers. We will be re-sharing and pinning the images to our new Wildflowers in Arizona Pinterest Board.
