The desert here appears to be carpeted with flowers come spring! The most common colorful ground cover includes numerous species of phlox, adding the colors of white, pink, and creamy yellow to the hills. Both Hooker’s and Carey’s balsamroot add brilliant golds and greens, and microsensis adds a shiny yellow to the tapestry.
