05. Santa Rosa Mtns., Box/Painted Canyons - Wildflowers cc)

Palm Springs, California, is an epicenter of three great wildflower sites and host Martin Hale expertly guides us through all three. The range of mountains closest to Palm Springs is the Santa Rosa/San Jacinto Mountains, which are the westernmost reach of the Sonoran Desert. Some of the wildflowers we discover here are transitional; also we find a waterfall in the desert. Nearby, Box Canyon and Painted Canyon, though relatively unknown, offer beautiful desert habitat with areas full of wildflowers if the rains have been good. Flora observed include: Giant Woolystar; California Thistle; Mariposa Lily; Granite Gilia; Phacelia; Woolly-Daisies; Monardella Nana; Lord's Candle; Golden Yarrow; Desert Sunflowers; Interior Goldenbush; Rose Mallow; Indian Paintbrush; Desert Penstemon; Blue Palo Verde; Small-Leaved Hoffmanseggia; Gilia; Desert Willow; Parachute Plant; Parish's Poppy; Rush Milkweed; California Fagonia; Thread-Leafed Ragwort; Fremont Pincushion. 2010/CC Closed-Captioned JSCA 30 min.
