Lupinus texensis (Texas Bluebonnets)
Bluebonnets are iconic Texas wildflowers that wow us with their lovely flower displays in the spring. Bluebonnets will thrive in any soil as long as it is well drained and in full sun. In fact, they thrive in disturbed, poor soils. They are drought tolerant once established.
Bluebonnets work well in wildflower gardens, micro-prairies, and naturalized areas.
