What’s That Plant??
There is a diverse range of over 200 species of plants that grow in Snow Canyon State Park. Contributing to this variety is the overlap of three different ecoregions in the park: The Mojave Desert, the Great Basin Desert and the Colorado Plateau. The group of plants presented here include the most common “Core Plants” that can be seen year-round on various park trails. Hopefully these profiles can help answer the frequently asked question, “What’s That Plant?”
To learn more, click on an image for a “Plant Note” to display. You may need to scroll through the note to find information on the image just clicked upon as some Plant Notes have several closely related plants grouped together. Images are arranged with trees and larger plants at the beginning followed by the more commonly seen shrubs and bushes. Further down you will find members of the cactus and yucca families as well as plants that have blooms. If you prefer to search by name rather than by an image, go to the Index page. Check our Wildflowers pages for more plants with blooms. Have fun learning about the wonderful plants in Snow Canyon State Park.
