Time is running short to see the bluebonnets


Texans only have a few weeks left to capture the beauty of bluebonnets.

Andrea DeLong-Amaya, the director of horticulture at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, said the state flower is right on season, which is what we’ve seen with other wildflowers.

If Texas doesn’t get any more rain, then the bluebonnet season could be cut short.

“The bluebonnets are really starting to kind of dry out and fizzle out a bit, which is pretty early,” said DeLong-Amaya. “We were a little over four inches below average this year before the big rains, so we were very welcome to see the rains.”

The end of the season is expected to be around Mother’s Day.
