It happens each year as if by magic. A few patches of wildflowers pop up followed by whole fields. Soon enough, Texas is alive with spectacular color!
While bluebonnets enjoy the most fame, and the title of the official state flower, Texas Hill Country landscapes on the way to El Castell offer several other abundant blooms, including Indian paintbrush, Indian blanket, pink evening primrose, Mexican hat, wine-cups, black-eyed Susan, coreopsis, and more.
Help us search for “The Legend of the Bluebonnet,” which is a Texas legend about the “Lady in Blue” who the Jumano Indians reported as seeing “a nun dressed in rich, cobalt blue color” and on her last visit to the tribe left behind her spirit in a field covered with flowers…which were deep blue like the color of her cloak.
