Flower Friday

Desert Paintbrush, Castilleja angustifolia, tends to be one of the first plants to bloom in spring. Often you will find this plant growing up or in other plants; it uses those host plants for structural support and steals nutrients with its roots. The bright red portion we see actually are the bracts growing over the small yellow-green flower.

Other flowers currently in bloom at Red Rock Canyon include:
-Penstemon (Palmer’s and Utah)
-Milkvetch
-Filaree
-Phacelia (Freemont & notch leaved)
-Wild Rhubarb
-Western redbud
-Globemallow
-Dog weed
-Desert marigold
-Mojave goldenbush
-Creosote
-Woolly amsonia
-Banana yucca
-Mojave yucca
-Joshua tree

And much more!
