Wildflower: Bluebonnet

Just about everyone in Texas knows the state flower is the bluebonnet. When the bluebonnets are in full bloom (usually March to May), they attract bees and butterflies. This time of year is past the bluebonnet’s prime, but you can still find a few faded flowers out there.
More importantly, though, this is the time of year when the bluebonnets are going to seed. If you let the seeds stay on the flower until they turn brown, they will reseed themselves, almost ensuring you’ll have a bigger patch of bluebonnets the following spring.
