Bluebonnets Set To Impress This Spring In North Texas

NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) - The Texas state flower is expected to make its best bloom this spring, according to experts on the matter.

Dave Forehand, the Vice President of Gardens at the Dallas Arboretum said their bright blue colors will be a big attraction within the coming months.

Heavy rainfall in the fall gave the seeds the water and growth they needed for a beautiful bloom.

"They sure are beautiful. It's just a joy to see them among all the roadsides," said Forehand. "Those things just bring joy to people and when they see them they can't help but want to get in them."

Bluebonnets will start blooming and reach their peak in March.

They're usually found in barren fields throughout North and Central Texas.
