desert mariposa lilyWildflowers are one of Tucson's major attractions. Sometimes the wildflower show is dramatic, sometimes the show is less than dramatic (the amount and timing of rainfall are critical). Whether dramatic or not, we have flowers blooming year-round. some wildflowers take advantage of our spring rains, some our monsoon summer rains, and some can bloom any time of the year. Our wildflowers may be annual, surviving as a seed between seasons (see adaptations), or perennials, often surviving only as a stump of their former self between seasons (drought deciduous). Here are just a few of the common wildflowers you can expect to see here in Tucson.
