I just wanted to share this. The seed bank in every square inch of soil is giant. Even in the desert there is an abundance of seeds just waiting for the right conditions. When the conditions arrive the plants take advantage of it. In Death Valley when there have been enormous blooms it has come to be known as superblooms. Here is a news story and a short video about these rare occurrences.
