“The Earth Laughs in Flowers”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
You’ve probably heard of this year’s incredible “super bloom” following the heaviest rainy season California has had in years – and, if you’ve gone outside at all these spring, you’ve probably noticed that a lot of things are green that never were before. But, have you experienced this Super Bloom in full effect? We’ll show you where to go!
ANZA-BORREGO DESERT STATE PARK
About 3 hrs from Los Angeles
Park located along highways S22 and 78 in Borrego Springs, CA.
Enjoy dune evening primrose, verbena, Arizona lupine, and yellow desert dandelions which create a rainbow effect! This incredible blend of desert flowers can be found at the end of DiGiorgio Road and Coyote Canyon.
Riverside County – 1.5 hrs from Los Angeles
Walker Canyon is located along the 15 freeway at the Lake Street exit.
See gorgeous poppies in all their glory at Walker Canyon. Our source calls Walker Canyon, Anza-Borrego’s “kid-brother,” stating that it “borders the western edge of the state park.” Enjoy hills of poppies with some purple flowers in between.
ANTELOPE VALLEY POPPY RESERVE
About 1 hr 45 mins from Los Angeles
Located 15 miles west of Lancaster at 15101 Lancaster Road.
If you didn’t get enough poppies at Walker Canyon, check out the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve and get your kicks! Fields of orange flood this breathtaking reserve. This site is 15 miles out of Lancaster at heights of 2600-3000 feet.
POINT MUGU STATE PARK
About 1.5 hrs from downtown L.A.
Point Mugu State Park is located at 9000 W. Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.
Don’t want to make a day trip out of your super bloom hunt? Visit Point Mugu State Park in Malibu. It might not be as expansive as the others, but at least you’ll get a taste of the super bloom without using up so much gas. Our source states, “Right now, according to DesertUSA, the northern end of Sycamore Canyon in Point Mugu is covered in parry’s phacelia and poppies. Other species in bloom include the wishbone bush, fiddleneck, and stinging lupine, so if you’re in the mood for playing Is It A Flower Species Or The Name Of An All Female Folk Trio, Point Mugu is the place to go.”
