Northwest Wildflowers

A collection of information about the native plants of North America — especially the wildflowers of Oregon, Washington, and northern California
2022 Wildflower Wrap-Up: It was a strange year. After a fairly normal winter, the spring months were very cold, and the flowers in most locations started late. Then, repeated heat waves in July and August accelerated things to the point that the spring delay was almost completely canceled out. The end result was a very short wildflower season.
Outlook for 2023: Too early to say. Let's just hope that Central Oregon FINALLY gets some rain and snow this winter; they're in their third consecutive year of severe drought.
