The flowers at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and surrounding deserts have bloomed after an onslaught of rain in recent months, following years of extreme drought in the region.
The last super bloom that was “bigger and better than this, but not by much,” occurred back in 1998, according to Dice.
This super bloom is just starting, and flowers will continue to bloom in abundance at least through the month.
Right now, it’s most common to see sand verbenas, dune evening primroses, brown eyed primroses, and desert sunflowers in bloom.
