Bay Area Wildflower Guide


April is here, and that means that wildflower season is fast approaching its peak here in the Bay Area. With an abundance of flowers though it can often be difficult to identify what you're seeing on the trail. So over at the Backcountry Bliss Facebook page I've started an album with photos and facts to help identify the plethora of natural gems cropping up in the fields, forests, and trails around the Bay. The first 5 flowers have been posted, with 5 more each day this week.

Readers not located in the SF Bay Area might also be interested in checking out the guide since many wildflowers like the Golden Poppy & Tidytip grow throughout the west. Even those restricted to the Bay often have relatives living throughout the United States.

So if you want to be able to know your common Blue Eyed Grass from an Ithuriel's Spear, check in on the wildflower guide for some help.

You can also check on some of the information I posed last year during Wildflower Week.
