If your favorite part of spring is to see the Texas Hill Country painted in vibrant colors and hues from the wildflowers blanketing the horizon, we’re with you! Check out our list of where to admire spring in full bloom in Central Texas.
Willow City Loop
Just outside of Fredericksburg lies Willow City Loop, a 13-mile road through hills and canyons full of wildflowers. You can see everything from bluebonnets, Indian paintbrush, phlox, and coreopsis to prickly poppies, sunflowers, firewheels, winecups, and prairie verbena.
Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center
There’s no better place to admire all of the wildflowers that call Texas home than at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. The gardens, meadows, and nature trails display hundreds of native Texas plant species. During the spring months, you can see Texas yellowstar, giant spiderwort, Indian paintbrush, blue curls, antelope-horns, Texas bluebonnets, winecup, pink evening primrose, and purple coneflower in bloom.
McKinney Falls State Park
The bluebonnets are blooming at McKinney Falls State Park. With nearly 730 acres of hiking and cycling trails, playgrounds, picnic areas, and campgrounds, there’s a ton of area to explore. Grab the camera and find your own patch of bluebonnets and wildflowers to admire this spring.
Springtime is the best time to visit Wildseed Farms. The Red Corn Poppies are expected to begin blooming in April, and when the wildflowers are in full bloom, be sure to check out the walking trails around the trial gardens and display gardens. There are even covered sitting areas for photo opportunities and the seasonal butterfly gardens to check out.
As the Bluebonnet Capital of Texas, our list of wildflower hot spots wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Burnet. They even host an annual Bluebonnet Festival in April — this year’s festivities will be taking place April 9 – 11.
The winter freeze may have delayed the spring flowers, but they will soon be in full bloom throughout Central Texas. Be sure to check out the beautiful native plants before they’re gone this season.
