Wildseed Farms information
To see vast cultivated fields of color, head to Wildseed Farms, which is 7 miles east of Fredericksburg on US 290. Aside from its magnificent blooms, there is a cafe where you can grab some tasty snacks and drinks (including local beers) and sit on the patio enjoying the flower-scented fresh air.
You know spring has arrived in Texas when you see cars pulling up roadside and families climbing out to take the requisite picture of their kids surrounded by bluebonnets – the state flower. From March to April in Hill Country, orange Indian paintbrushes, deep-purple winecups and white-to-blue bluebonnets are at their peak.
