Yesterday’s word

The word effloresce means “to burst into bloom; to blossom, or become covered in flowers”

First usage

Our word came into English in the mid-1700s

Background / Comments

Our word came from the Latin word efflōrēscere (to blossom out), which is made of of ef- (out [a variant of ex-]) with flōrēscere (to being to bloom), which has the stem flōr- (flower).
