If you’re about ready to blow the dust off and get out on the open road for a spring trip, make sure you visit the Wild About Texas “Wildflower Sightings” website. Their page identifies and posts the locations of amazingly scenic wildflower locations throughout the state of Texas, which will help you map out a gloriously beautiful route through which you can stop, and smell the bluebonnets (not roses…that would just be silly.)

Based on their observations while out on the Texas roads, together with posts by avid visitors to the site, staff update the wildflower sightings and categorize displays. These are then mapped throughout the state in order for visitors and members of the site to coordinate their best road trip route according to where they would like to see such beauty!

And anyone can get in on the game by finding and reporting to the website on wildflower locations of note. And when you’re touring through the various state regions, such as our very own Texas Hill Country, they have a user-friendly app which can be easily accessed via cell phone. Simply find a great place to stop, and either update on a new site you’ve found, or look for sites nearby that you would like to visit.

Visitors to the site can also search for types of wildflowers together with plant information, share their own photos, and ask for help identifying types and species. It’s a great way to not only learn more about Texas plants but also to plot out the many photo opportunities you’ll want to seize on your next Texas road trip!
