2019 Texas Wildflowers Reports
May 16, 2019 Neysa reports: Prickly pear and cholla cacti are blooming throughout the Franklin Mountains State Park in El Paso, TX. A few late claret cups were found along the trails too. The prickly pear are bearing a banner year indeed. I have never witnessed so many prickly pears blooming within a season. Photos May 11 & 12, 2019
April 19, 2019 Big Bend NP reports: Blooming now! Giant Dagger Yuccas (Yucca faxoniana) are having a great year! For another week or two, come see a fantastic flower display of hundreds of blooming yuccas at the end of the Dagger Flat Auto Trail!
April 8, 2019 Ted reports: Big Bend NP Prickly pear cactus and Ocotillo are in full, spectacular bloom between Panther Junction and the Rio Grand River. Lots of buds, too, so more to come!
March 8, 2019 Janet reports: Big Bend National Park, Tuesday, March 5th, 2019.
March 8, 2019 Bob reports: Big Bend National Park...large clusters of wildflowers now carpeting many areas in the park. Bluebonnets in abundance along many of the roadways. Bluebonnets near Rio Grande Village. (map)

March 4, 2019 Big Bend NP reports: Amazing clusters of Big Bend Bluebonnets are blooming along the southern end of Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive. This year, 2019, is looking to be one of the best in recent years for Spring blooms and is only just getting started! Tread lightly among the wildflowers, never picking them to ensure future seeds become flowers, and always pull safely off the roadways into pullouts or at trailheads. Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive, Big Bend National Park, Texas.
