Here are some desert wildflowers I caught on camera in the Black Canyon area in Arizona. This area is part of the ARIZONA TRANSITION ZONE.
Giant Saguaro’s are found on hills, slopes, or plains. They can grow up to 40 feet tall. They reside in Arizona and the Sonoran desert in Mexico. They will bloom white flowers in May and June. Giant Saguaro’s are the Arizona state flower.
Here are some photos from a recent walk in the high desert on the Colorado Plateau. There is so much color out there, it is very impressive! The wildflowers are (clockwise): Tidytip, Potts Prickly Pear, Globemallow, and Phlox.
This is a Beavertail Prickly Pear Cactus I found in northern Arizona.
