Texas Bluebonnet

(Lupinus texensis)

Texas bluebonnet is a perennial native to Texas, but adapted westward to California. Bluebonnets grow to a height of 30.5 to 61 cm (12 to 24 in.) and have gray-green foliage. The blue peat-like flowers are densely packed on an upright stem. It is an extremely drought tolerant plant, which often grows in very poor soil. Bluebonnets have been planted extensively along roadsides in Texas.

Plant seed 0.6 to 1.3 cm (¼ to ½ in.) deep. The best planting time is early spring. Pre-treated seed will germinate more quickly. When establishing bluebonnets in areas where they have not grown before, bacteria inoculants should be used with the seed to insure healthy, nitrogen-fixing plants.
