1. Anza-Borrego Desert - Wildflowers 1 (cc)

Host Martin Hale introduces California as one of the world's premier wild gardens. For every four flowering plants in the United States, one is found in California; it is one of the world's botanical hot spots. Our first visit is to the Anza-Borrego State Park, located in the western Sonoran Desert about 140 miles southeast of Los Angeles. We explore Coyote Canyon and Mountain Palm Springs and discover a variety of familiar as well as hard-to-find wildflowers. Collectively, the desert bloom is a breathtaking sight. Flora observed include: Sand Verbena; Dune Evening Primrose; Desert Hibiscus; Desert Tobacco Plant; Rattlesnake Weed; Broad-Leafed Gilia; Beavertail Cactus; Lax-Flower; Ajo Lily; Desert Sunflower; California Fan Palms; Desert Chicory; Twining Snapdragons; Bigelow Monkeyflower; Ghost Flower. 2010/CC Closed-Captioned JSCA 30 min.
