Tucson Wildflowers: Mike in Tucson, AZ Mortgage Lender

Tucson Wildflower ~ Apricot Mallow

The Wildflower season in Tucson has started early.  My afternoon hike began at the King Canyon trailhead, just across the road from the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum. I found this beauty, commonly called the Desert Globemallow, in the sandy wash that comprises the lower King Canyon trail.

  ~ Tucson Wildflower: Blue Phacelia ~

The coloring of our Tucson Wildflowers belies the ordinarily drab hues of the Arizona Sonoran desert.  This plant was blooming alongside the upper King Canyon Trail.  In a 2 1/2 mile hike, I only saw two Blue Phacelias, also referred to as Scorpionweed.

Beautiful.  We are supposed to be close to 70 this week.  Apparently winter forgot about us this year.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU!!!  I've been seeing both of these pop up around Scottsdale and had no idea what their names were.  I thought the first was a type of red sage with the Blue Phacella - well I had NO idea.  Thanks, Mike.

Hi Mike,

What beautiful flowers and how wonderful that they are wild flowers and pop up all over. We get wild poppies here in California. But I really like the lilac blue flowers. Thanks for the picture.

I was just thinking today, while sitting at my laptop, how much I love the desert. This is why.
