Here is some updated information, courtesy of the Anza-Borrego Foundation:

Current Flower Locations:

Both Coyote Canyon and Henderson Canyon Road's wildflower fields are mostly gone, as they have been decimated by the caterpillars. There may be some Desert Sunflowers left, but most of the Sand Verbena and Dune Evening Primrose are gone. About a mile and half into Coyote Canyon, there are Ocotillo and Indigo Bush (Schott's delea) blooming. Cacti are blooming on the Cactus Loop Trail.

There is still a good-sized patch of Dune Evening Primrose and Desert Sand Verbena blooming near Truckhaven Trail near mile marker 30 off the S-22. There is a pull out on the North side of the highway to park and view the flowers.

Tips to Share to Help Protect Our Wildflowers:

Help protect the wildflowers and stay safe while viewing. Please do not stop in the road. Pull over to the side of the road to view the wildflowers wildlife and to take photos. Park within one vehicle length of the road and do not park on any vegetation. Leave no trace and take only memories. Please leave the wildflowers for others to enjoy. Give wildlife their distance and allow them access to water.
