Frost Flowers by crh.noaa.gov: Frost flowers are thin layers (perhaps credit card thickness) of ice that are extruded through slits from the stems of white or yellow wingstem plants, among others. Their formation requires freezing air temperature, soil that is moist or wet but not frozen, and a plant's stem that has not been previously frozen. Water in the stem expands as it freezes, splitting the stem which then extrudes ribbons of paper thin ice. #Frost_Flowers #Weather
Frost Flower - it is created in autumn or early winter mornings when ice in extremely thin layers is pushed out from the stems of plants or occasional wood. This extrusion creates beautiful patterns which curl and fold into frozen petals giving it its name.
