The rare plants:



We, Carla and Fred are exploring the Anza-Borrego Desert since 2007 and are hiking almost daily in often remote area's.
You find a description of most of our hikes here: Anza-Borrego Hiking website

In 2015 we started mapping Carlowrightia arizonica and Xylorhiza orcuttii and found that rare doesn't actually equals low numbers
A rare plants is often confined to a specific area and isn't usually found outside that area.

Here is our list of rare plants:


Carlowrightia arizonica
Ericameria teretifolia - Green rabbitbrush
Horsfordia newberryi - Newberry's velvet mallow
Xylorhiza orcuttii - Orcutt's woody-aster
