Southeastern Arizona White Arizona Flowers

Listed here are some of the southeastern Arizona wildflowers with conspicuous white, whitish, or cream-colored flowers. Note: Some of the wildflowers listed below do not yet have images available in this color.

Plants with white flowers are very common here in southeastern Arizona, and even plants that normally have colored flowers can sometimes be seen with white or cream-colored flowers because of a color mutation.

White flowers that are pollinated by daytime insects like butterflies and bees will frequently have a yellow or yellowish center to attract insects. Night-blooming flowers are often pollinated by moths, and they are usually white so that they can be seen at night, fragrant so that they can attract moths by scent, and tubular in shape to better hold their sweet nectar supply.
