More To Do In

Awesome Blossoms

Each spring, wildflowers pave

Mesa’s nearby hiking trails and the

desert overflows with hues of red,

purple, orange, yellow and blue – all

accompanied by the vibrant green

shades of Arizona’s indigenous desert

flora. Wildflower season varies each

year and is dependent on fall and winter

rainfall amounts. Blooms are usually at

their peak in mid-March but can start

as early as February. From the scarlet

display of ocotillo blossoms, the yellow

sea of Mexican poppies and the prickly

pear cactus full of bright fuchsia-colored

fruit, it’s a great time to hit the trail.
