The second in a series on wildflowers:
Texas bluebonnets are the ubiquitous sign that spring has sprung in Texas. Well, there area few other signs, but when you are driving down the highway and see the flowers blooming, you know it’s time to start digging in the dirt and pulling out the shorts—maybe!
The bluebonnet is one of five state flowers. That is, all five lupine species are considered the state flower! Texas bluebonnet story.
A few years ago I grew some in a container in Florida. They did pretty good for the climate and some day I’d love to grow them again.
