Satisfy Your Wildflower Wanderlust

Early spring wildflowers like bluebonnets may have faded by now, but many others are just getting started.

While a dry winter may not produce the profusion of color seen in a wet year, don’t let it diminish your fun of seeking out photo-worthy fields of flowers.

Early spring wildflowers like bluebonnets may have faded by now, but others are still around or just getting started thanks to late April showers.

Look out for antelope horns, pink evening primrose, white prickly poppy, coreopsis, and even Indian paintbrush. Also popping up this month in Central Texas are antelope horns, Indian blanket, Mexican hat and rock rose.

Major highways leading out of San Antonio are great options for wandering through the wildflowers. Or you can go straight to the source and head to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center on the southwest edge of Austin. You just may spy several roadside wildflowers en route!

National Wildflower Week is the first week of May, but let’s celebrate all month long. Follow @MySAWS on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and tag us to share your #wildflowerwanderlust pics!
