The spring flowering season in the Arizona Upland subdivision spans from mid-February to mid-June with a peak from mid-March to late April depending on rainfall and temperatures during the growing season. “It happens when all the weather conditions are just right, and that means substantial rainfall in late fall and early winter, cool daytime temperatures, and cold nights”. The most popular flowers you can find in the southern Arizona desert are California Poppies, Palmer’s Indian Mallow, Bird of Paradise, Mojave Prickly Poppy, Desert Marigolds, superb Penstemons and more!
Sandy Luna from Luna’s Paper Designs LLC will teach you how to assemble a small bouquet inspired by wildflowers that grow around Tucson with pre-cut crepe paper, wire and glue. You also will learn the techniques and how to work with crepe paper and make realistic flowers. This is a beginner-level class.
This is a one-day class, and all supplies are provided. You can bring snacks and drinks.
$80 for members and $95 for the general public.
