If you were strolling through a field throughout the winter season and discovered a stunning clearing, loaded with intensely white flowers. However, upon closer examination, you realized that they may not be flowers after all…
Even though this field appears to be filled with stunning white blooms, it is not.
These “flowers” are an unusual phenomenon referred to as frost flowers.
The phenomenon takes place when plant stems and roots are not frozen and filled with moisture. The moisture travels upwards the stem, freezes, thus producing layers of ice.
Those ice layers form into fragile flower “petals”.
And they are definitely stunning.
Frost flowers typically happen in the late fall or early winter season, when plants are still alive and have moisture in them. They are unusual and the conditions need to be perfect to develop them. It’s a natural winter season phenomenon you’d be fortunate to capture. Share this gorgeous rarity with others.
