Why do flowers bloom in the spring?
Not all flowers bloom in spring. Those that do so largely because they need to set fruit or seed and have it mature before winter. In the winter, the fruits would not be able to withstand the cold and freeze. Sometimes, the flower's petals will wither during and die in the winter, so they must bloom during the spring, the season of warmth and new life.

This is one of the most often asked questions. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most difficult to answer. Each year, the unique combination of sun, wind, water. temperature, elevation precise location sets the stage for the springtime blooms. Use the following information to make your own predic…tions for this spring's showing.. Rain is needed in small doses throughout the winter. Too little rain provides a poor climate for seed germination. Too much rain, and the seeds could rot or be washed away. Showers too early or too late in the season may not help the flowers bloom. . Temperature is also critical. Warm days are a good indicator of a full bloom ahead. If the sun gets too hot though, (over 85 degrees F. in February/March) the seeds may become parched and seedlings scorched. Cool nights can assist flower seedlings by slowing the growth of competitors like grasses and mustards. However, very cold temperatures mean bad news for blossoms. . When will the flowers bloom? None of us knows for sure. Each year's bloom is unique in its variety, profusion and timing. From late February through March, you can find blossoms on the desert floors. To plan your visit to coincide with the peak of the bloom, take advantage of the various wildflower hotlines and information sources available through the state and national parks. (MORE)
