Growth in gardening: The Wildflowers of Texas - San Marcos Daily Record
Texas Hill Country seemed like the verbena capital of Texas with pasture after pasture covered with carpets of purple. Verbena is an amazing native perennial. It is drought tolerant and highly deer resistant. This beautiful low growing trailing plant likes dry to medium moist sites. Verbena is among the state’s most abundant wildflowers.
Pink evening primrose is another we see growing everywhere and I am so glad that it does. From April to June, across much of the state, you will find patches of pink on display as you drive the highways of Texas. It opens at dusk in northern portions of Texas; flowers wither each day, replaced by new blossoms each evening. In our part of the state, its blooms stay open all day for us to enjoy.
The Texas Bluebell has all but disappeared because of indiscriminate picking.
Next is the Bluebell – not the ice cream, although I love that too – I am talking about the Texas Bluebell which blooms from June to September in moist areas in fields and prairies, and in drainage areas, except in Big Bend Country. Please don’t pick them. Bluebells have virtually disappeared in many locations because of indiscriminate picking. With its tulip-shaped blooms and its rich color, bluebell is considered by many to be our state's most beautiful wildflower. After seeing an entire field of bluebells in their stunning glory, it is easy for me to see why that argument is a strong one. Flowers range from bluish-purple to white, or white with tinges of yellow or purple.
Another favorite is Winecup. It is a lovely native groundcover that blooms in spring from March to April. They form a sprawling evergreen mat that explodes with vivid purple flowers, though you can also find varieties with white flowers. They bloom for weeks, opening in the morning and closing at night. These flowers tend to grow in sandy soils in open woods and scrublands. Mostly single flowers, on plants about six to eight inches high. A tall branched variety bears many blossoms on one plant.
Spotted beebalm, also called lemon-mint, horsemint and wild bergamot, is one of those plants that you seem to never notice until you learn a bit about it. It is not as in-your-face as some of our more bedazzled wildflowers can be. It tends to grow in small colonies and near each other. If you find one, you will usually find another not too far away. They can vary in size from six inches to three feet but are always showy, in their way, with extroverted colors that can last for months. You can propagate it by seeds or cuttings. The creamy lilac-spotted flowers with pink bracts, attract honeybees, bumblebees, miner bees, plasterer bees, hummingbirds and the swallowtail butterfly.
Gayfeather is another wildflower Texans look forward to each year. Gayfeather is among the most finely attired of our pageant of wildflowers. Standing taller than most, it draws your attention with its distinctive purple-pink spikes and tassels. This showy flower, that resembles a bottle-brush, makes its debut in pastures, prairies and roadways as early as July and hangs around until December. It is also called button snakeroot because roots and underground stems have been used to treat rattlesnake bites. Butterflies and hummingbirds are frequent visitors, and goldfinches and other songbirds eat the seeds.
The last plant I want to mention is the Blackfoot daisy. It blooms in early spring and stays with us through fall, thriving on the calcareous soils we have here in Central Texas. A low-growing plant, this species often grows twice as wide as it is tall. This plant is very drought and heat tolerant. It is also a good source of nectar for many different insects and seeds for birds while still being highly deer resistant.
Bluebonnets are the most popular Texas wildflowers in Central Texas and people come from hundreds of miles to view the Bluebonnets. The Bluebonnets started bloom in the middle of March and will usually peak about the second week of April. It is a beautiful sight and since by the end of April the Bluebonnets are usually fading away, I suggest you get out now and enjoy them, that is if you haven’t already.

Best California wildflower spots: Shell Creek, Carrizo Plain - Modesto Bee
It’s all but impossible not to step on a flower somewhere. You’d have as much luck walking into your house trying not to step on the carpet. The blooms are that thick.
Fields of yellow blend into blue then into orange, in a scene dotted with oak trees and the namesake creek that gurgles through the middle.
It’s a floral Shangri-la. I defy you to find a more peaceful or picturesque wildflower spot anywhere in the state.

Lake Elsinore, Calif., on March 19. (Digitalglobe/Reuters) The super bloom got its start several weeks ago in the deserts of California. A carpet of flowers has since progressed toward the shore and is traveling north. The hills of the Carrizo Plain National Monument in San Luis Obispo County appear as if they were painted by super bloom.
