Desert Wildflower Super-bloom

Wildflower Super-bloom 2019 - Anza-Borrego

A rare super bloom is happening in California’s Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Officials at the park expect a widespread blooming of desert wildflowers in late February and early March.
A super bloom occurs when uncharacteristically rainy fall and winter seasons are followed by cold weather, which locks moisture into the ground. In the desert, the seeds of annual flowers lie dormant until enough water washes away their protective coating, allowing them to sprout. The result is an explosion of colorful wildflowers in a desert that is typically bare.
