Bluebonnets Startin' to Get CRAZY

Last summer I scattered about 3/4lb of bluebonnet seeds that I had left over from the previous year.  I'd done it in a slight bit of a "BAH!  GET THIS DONE AND OUT OF HERE!" sort of way, and now the bluebonnets are takin' over!




I think I might be breaking personal records of bluebonnet seed harvest this spring.  Maybe I'll get 2 lbs?  Mysteries abound!

  1. I am so jealous! they simply will not grow here. I have tried and tried and tried yet again. I love them, I long for them, and I can't have them. I am officially counting on you to provide lots of photos this spring. thanks!!

    1. I guess you're lucky that they're in the lupinus genus which means you can at least grow something similar that I doubtfully could grow! I'll do my best to take gobs of photos. ;)

    1. Thanks! I'll take bigger shots once there are more blooms.

  3. How exciting! I have precisely one bluebonnet plant with no blossoms. I do have larkspur popping up everywhere, though.

    1. I think the first time we managed bluebonnets, we had like 10 plants after scattering 4-5 packets of seed, and ever since, we've gotten more and more.

      I don't have any larkspur, but it's on my list! I need to expand beyond bluebonnets and a get more wildflower variety in this yard.
