Welcome to the Desert Botanical Garden’s Wildflower Tracking Site – each spring during March and April we partner with Arizona’s parks and gardens to provide you with a guide to where the wildflowers are blooming.
Wildflower season is upon us. You can track this year’s blooms right here on dbg.org! Get real-time updates to plan your next hike, and you can be a contributor to help others experience Arizona’s wildflower beauty.
View 2016 Wildflowers on a Map
As of March 9, 2016, Pinterest dropped its mapping feature that collectively showed where each photo was taken. We apologize for the inconvenience as this happened without warning. We will be looking into other mapping features for next year.
View or follow Desert Botanical Garden’s Pinterest place board Wildflowers in Arizona – 2016 to see where you can find your favorite wildflowers. The board is easy to use.
- To view close-ups of the individual flowers, click on an image.
- You'll see a map below the image that pinpoints where the individual image was taken.
- You may need to create a Pinterest account to view the map.
Help Us Track Wildflowers
We invite everyone to help us track the wildflowers in our area. Photos don’t need to be professionally shot. You can even take them using your smartphone. There are three ways you can share the photos.
- Twitter: Tweet the pictures of wildflowers and use hashtag #azwildflowerwatch and tag @dbgtweet. We will add the pictures to the Pinterest Wildflowers in Arizona Place Board. Please let us know where you took the photo so we can properly map it.
- Instagram: Tag the photos with #azwildflowerwatch and we'll re-post the images on Instagram and add them to Pinterest. Don't forget to include the location so we can map it.
- Email: Send us pictures via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will add them to the Wildflowers in Arizona Place Board on Pinterest. We may also share them on our other social media channels as needed. Be sure to let us know where you found the wildflowers so we can put it on the map,
