The California Super Bloom is an awe-inspiring event that occurs when a large amount of rain falls in an area that is usually dry and arid. Super blooms are much more intense than regular blooms due to the abundance of water and nutrients available for the flowers. The extra water helps fertilize the soil, allowing the plants to take full advantage of any sunlight they receive. In addition, this abundance of moisture helps create favorable conditions for pollinators such as bees and butterflies which further contribute to the growth and spread of these colorful displays. Super blooms typically last anywhere from several weeks up to several months.
