In the western United States, Death Valley has blossomed for the first time in 10 years. PHOTO, VIDEO
California's Death Valley, which is considered the hottest place on the planet, has flourished for the first time in ten years.
The name of the intermontane depression, located to the south-east of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, in the area of the Mojave Desert and the Great Basin, received during the Gold Rush, when silver and gold were mined there. Now in Death Valley is the eponymous national park.
So rapid February bloom is caused by torrential rains that hit the valley in the fall of 2015. By the spring, with the increase in daylight, rapid growth of plants began.
According to the staff of the Death Valley National Park, among the local rocks and sands you can see various species of Phacelia, Asteraceae, Onagraceae and other flowers that can survive in such unusual conditions.
From late November to February - the coolest time in Death Valley (+5 to +20 degrees Celsius). The average maximum temperature in July reaches + 46 ° C, dropping to + 31 ° C at night.
Many deserts are covered with flowers from time to time: the wind brings seeds into the soil that are waiting for precipitation and other favorable weather conditions. For example, recently the arid Atacama Desert has bloomed for the second time this year in Chile.
