Where to Find Bluebonnet Patches in Texas

Texas comes to life each spring with fields full of wildflowers, though no wildflower is quite as beloved as the bluebonnet. For good reason too: not only is it Texas’s official state flower, but that deep blue color just can’t be beat. Though bluebonnet fields are inconsistently located year to year, there are certain areas and parks that you can rely upon to have the famous flowers.

Big Bend National Park

Big Bend is a great place to visit anyway if you want natural beauty, but the bluebonnets in spring add that extra incentive. The fields there aren’t quite as fulsome as they are in east and central Texas, but the park is worth the visit in any case.

Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area

The Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area is located just northwest of Austin along the Colorado River near Spicewood. It’s a great place for finding bluebonnets and has consistently crowded wildflower fields. Located very close by is another good bluebonnet site, Highway 281 outside of Marble Falls, which is just a bit further northwest than Muleshoe Bend.

Ennis

Just south of Dallas, Ennis is one of the best bluebonnet growing areas in the state. The area is so consistent with bluebonnets that they even have permanent trails specially laid out for viewing bluebonnets. These trails are in their prime during April, so go check them out.
