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.
