The annotated checklist below is based on the Crossosoma publication by Jim André, plus any additional species vouchered since then. The flora comprises all of the Granite Mountains (27,700 ha (107 sq. mi.), including the majority of the alluvial fans surrounding the range and the 3,600 ha University of California’s Sweeney Granite Mountains Desert Research Center. The diverse floristic composition of the Granite Mountains includes elements of the Mojave, Great Basin, and Sonoran/Colorado Deserts. Currently there are 71 families, 256 genera, 502 species/taxa (10 rare, 31 invasive/non-indigenous, 6 cultivated non-indigenous).

This annotated list is arranged alphabetically by family and species. An asterisk (*) precedes a special-status plant listed by the California Native Plant Society. An exclamation mark (!) precedes an introduced or naturalized exotic species. A plus sign (+) precedes a non-naturalized historic cultivar. The scientific name is followed by common name and general abundance and habitat(s). Elevation ranges are provided, followed by an italicized plant collector, collection number, and the code of the institution housing the collection. Institution codes are as follows: Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden (RSA); UC Berkeley (UC and JEPS); UC Riverside (UCR); UC Santa Barbara (UCSB); UC Santa Cruz (UCSC); UC Sweeney Granite Mountains Desert Research Center (GMDRC).
