Finding Native Wildflowers For Colfax County Landscaping

New Mexico has a widely varied ecosystem, so plants that do well in other areas of New Mexico may not do well in Colfax County. Plants that are native to Colfax County are required to withstand an average low of 20 degrees in the coldest month and an average high of 83 degrees in the warmest month. The average rainfall in Colfax County is just under 19 inches. This counts only rainfall. Snowfall is an entirely different matter. Colfax County sees an average of just under three feet of snow in the winter.

The following wildflowers do well in Colfax County and are considered native plants to our specific area:
