Although this Texas Bluebonnet, Lupinus texensis, may scream springtime, it's time to start thinking wildflowers! If you want to grow Bluebonnets from seed, they need to be in the ground in October or November. I like to scarify my seed first! Line a coffee can with rough sandpaper and put your seed into it. I leave my can in the kitchen and every time I pass it, it gets a few shakes. After a week of shaking, they're ready to go in the ground.
