Wildflower Season Taking Off Across Texas

AUSTIN, TX (Ben Caxton) — Good news for people who enjoy posing in bluebonnets each spring. The spring wildflower across Texas has come earlier this year and will last longer according to horticulturalists. Specialists at the University of Texas at Austin’s Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center predict this year’s crop of wildflowers will spread out over several months rather than the typical February-April rush. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s three-month forecast predicts warmer-than-average weather but freezes can still occur. There have been reports of Big Bend bluebonnets blooming in West Texas since early February. Bluebonnets here tend to show earlier, and many of the western blooms have come and gone by the time much of the rest of Texas is hitting peak season, according to horticulturists. But this year they may last a little longer if the rains continue.
