The last time California had a super bloom was in 2019, and it appeared that everyone went a little bit crazy over it. Of course, this was pre-pandemic, so it feels like a lifetime ago rather than just 4 years. These super bloom events are relatively rare and usually only happen once every ten years. However, experts are saying that spring 2023 could be another super bloom year in Southern California.
California state experienced an unusually high amount of rainfall in the summer of 2022 and also had devastating floods just this past month. High rainfall is a prerequisite for a super bloom the following spring.
