The California Super Bloom is an extremely rare phenomenon in which a vast amount of wildflowers germinate and blossom at the same time. 2023’s Super Bloom will be the first one in four years!
So what makes a Super Bloom so… super? To answer that question, we have to dive into California’s soil, all the way to the wildflower seeds buried deep in the ground. These seeds are finicky.

The ground must have ample cloud coverage and no harsh winds to damage the seeds. As you can tell, the California Super Bloom requires a set of very specific conditions in order to occur. When the right balance is struck, the magic begins.
