Water can flow through a very small crack in the asphalt. If there is a seed in the crack or just below the asphalt at the crack, the seed gets enough heat from the sun and water from the rain to begin to germinate. As the plant grows, it spreads larger and pushes the asphalt up. Then it looks like a volcano as it grows a flower up through.
