Wildflowers in State Parks

This is Passport to Texas

If wildflowers haven’t popped up yet where you live, they will soon—it’s what they do this time of year. And as our State park Guide, Bryan Frazier tells us, even non-Texans flock to the flowers when they bloom.

61—Not just all over the US, but all over the world, who come in to see out beautiful bluebonnets, and Indian Paintbrushes, and Indian Blankets, and Evening Primrose, and all of those flowers that make Texas this pallet of color in the spring. And whether you’re talking about Washington County and state parks like Washington-on-the-Brazos, or McKinney Falls, or LBJ State Park in the Hill Country—and even down in South Texas like lake Corpus Christi State Park, or even up in North Texas, you can see lost of different regionalized color for wildflowers, and this time of year is the time to do it. If we’ve had any seasonal rains at all you can even get them out in the Big Bend area—which are some of the most unique flowers you’re going to see any time. It’s a great time to get out and take photographs, and people love to take their children out there. Be safe, because some other animals and critters, sometimes little snakes and things, like the cover and the shade of the wildflowers. So, take your steps carefully and deliberately, but get out and enjoy the beautiful color that’s about to come our way with wildflower season all across Texas.

Thanks, Bryan.
