Common questions answered about Texas Wildflowers

CENTRAL TEXAS (KXXV) -

Wildflowers are seen all over Central Texas this time of the year. 

Roadsides are draped with those blues, reds, and the positively pink primroses - all soaking up the spring Central Texas sun.

During this time of the year, a lot of people ask, is it illegal to pick them?

"No, it's not illegal to pick bluebonnets. It's mostly to do with trespassing, vandalism and property rights," McLennan County Master Gardener Mark Barnett said.

Barnett added that although you can plant them at home, but they don't always do very well.

"Most wildflowers can be planted from seed. Bluebonnets in general don't do well in the home landscape because the area is generally too small to do from seed... same thing with the paintbrushes," Barnett said. "The pink primroses are available. I've seen them for sale, but they're very aggressive in the home landscape."

If you want to take a photo with Texas' favorite wildflowers, you might want to plan to get it done soon.

"This year will probably go to Mid-April or so, so we have a few more weeks for them," Barnett said.
