A Spring Super Bloom Is Coming To This Tiny Town In California

California spent much of 2018 dealing with devastating wildfires, but those blazes have proved to have a bright side. Experts are saying that the flames have set the stage for a stunning “superbloom” this year in one tiny California town.

Located a few hours south of Los Angeles, the small community of Borrego Springs is home to the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. This year, the park is predicting a massive blossoming of flowers that could rival the 2017 so-called “Flowergeddon.”

Visitors to the park should expect to see thousands of flowers in full bloom soon. These flowers will have actually benefited from the blazes of 2018, as the heat and smoke of wildfires cause desert flower seeds to germinate.

Though a strong heatwave or late frost could spell trouble for the spring bloom, officials are hopeful that the town will soon be covered in color. Head to Borrego Springs in early March and April of this year for your best chance of seeing the superbloom.
