Spring is right around the corner for the Texas Hill Country and that means our landscapes will soon come to life with blankets of bluebonnets. Wildflower season is a big deal in Texas, and we know y’all are ready to get those cameras out, so here are five great places in the Hill Country to find Texas bluebonnets.

St. Edwards University always has a great display that’s easily accessible and safe to pose your family in.  Another great place for bluebonnets and an array of other wildflowers is the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. They offer guided and self-guided tours and are an excellent resource to learn about wildflowers.

Georgetown is mostly known for the red poppies it grows in its historic district, but two areas tend to have really good bluebonnet displays. Wellspring United Methodist Church’s grounds are usually packed with bluebonnets. Another area worth driving is along Highway 130, but keep in mind that it’s a toll road highway, so do not stop for photos as you would be breaking the law.

Llano usually has fantastic wildflower displays. North on Highway 16 has great roadside displays around Babyhead Cemetery. South on Highway 16 has several fields, with the best usually at Oxford Ranch Campground. Highway 29 heading west of town usually has great roadside displays and several sizeable fields as well.

Wildseed Farms does an impressive job every year with their fields and displays. There’s always a large field of red poppies and a giant bluebonnet field during the peak of wildflower season. The fields are fenced off, but they do grow a nice mix of wildflowers that are open to explore. They also post a bloom status update with images during the season, so you can see how things look before making the trip.
