Many have been asking, “Will there still be wildflowers in Boerne after the freezing weather and snow last month?” The short answer is “YES!”, and we couldn’t be more excited about it! The timing of Winter Storm Uri was ideal for avoiding bloom denting damage and the snow served as an insulating blanket that protected the developing plants.
Boerne’s central location in the Texas Hill Country makes us a prime destination to admire the explosion of color that our Texas wildflowers provide on our local roadways. Whether you are on your way to Boerne from one of our neighboring communities, or on your way home from a memorable visit, you’re sure to enjoy a colorful show.
Texas Parks and Wildlife News recently posted that “In central Texas, residents will see many vegetative bluebonnets, Engelmann’s daisy, Blackfoot daisy, Drummond’s skullcap, Lindheimer’s paintbrush, Missouri primrose, prairie fleabane, and many others.” Which is great news for those making their way to Boerne for a spring escape!
We’re already starting to see some of our early bloomers and expect even more of our springtime favorites over the coming weeks. Curious about the flowers you are spying? There’s an app for that! Check out iNaturalist for a quick ID by just snapping a photo of your floral find. This is also a helpful resource for identifying wildlife like our returning migratory birds, including hummingbirds which we expect to see any day now!
