Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve in California

California poppies bloom all over the state, but the western side of Antelope Valley in northern Los Angeles County is the most consistent poppy-bearing land, protected from grazing and other human interference. Each spring, this desert like area comes alive with millions of bright orange poppy flowers. The wildflower season generally lasts from as early as mid-February through late May, and depends on the amount of rainfall during the winter to early spring seasons. This area is now protected and called the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve.
