What Is It? One of the major perks of being in Texas during the springtime is catching sight of the native wildflowers, such as bluebonnets, Indian blankets, and the Indian paintbrush.
Why Do It? Peak bloom typically occurs in March, but some years the flowers can be seen as early as late February and as late as May. There are numerous places to view wildflowers in Texas, from along major highways like State Highway 290 or at farms and gardens like Wildseed Farms and Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center. A visit to Burnet, Texas, known as the “Bluebonnet Capital of Texas,” is a great spring destination.
Good to Know: True Texans embrace bluebonnet season by taking bluebonnet pictures instead of picking this blue-colored state flower.
