My buddy sent me this link today. If you want to know about the wild flowers in ABDSP then check out this link. This guy has done a tremendous amount of work compiling the data you will see. It is amazing. Rainfall totals, photos, trip reports, and more!

Should be one of the best years for wildflowers with all the rain...I'm curious to know how many rare or endangered plants live in the Anza Borrego State Park....and does the Ocotillo grow elsewhere?? Thanks.

Welcome to the forum
Ocotillo are found in the Sonoran and Chihuahuan deserts of southeast California to west Texas and south into Mexico.
What I didn't know was that they are also known as
Candlewood
Slimwood
Coachwhip
Vine Cactus
Flamingsword
Jacob's Staff

On our last Baja trip I think I remember seeing Ocotillo on the Gulf side. They also had this crazy Ocotillo type plant that looked like something out of Dr. Seuss.

Awesome,

This part of the site

http://tchester.org/bd/species/gallery.html

has great pics of many flowers in the park. He says not all of them but there are plenty on there to try to identify. If I had an iPhone I would be trying to figure out a way to save that page to my phone (in case I was out of cell range) and then there would be no reason to break out the book every time I wanted to know a flower. I am sure someone will know how to do this. Or maybe there is already something like this available.

Funny you should mention that but I was able to download some photos and upload them to my iPhone.
I think DesertUSA made them available.

I think it covers all of the flowers and cactus blooms found in Anza Borrego.
