Texas Bluebonnet (Lupinus texensis) Honored as the official flower of the Lone Star State. This classic annual, referred to as "King of Spring", rules its domain proudly, blanketing hills and valleys with its elegant blue-violet color. Truly an inspiring Texas scene is to see this graceful flower share the earth with the equally unusual, Indian Paintbrush.

They grew and are beautiful. The only plant to survive the winter freeze.. What more can you ask for.
I've seen some negative reviews for these seeds, but knowing how difficult it can be to grow Bluebonnets in zone 7, I decided to take a chance and am extremely pleased to see seedlings in my garden! Typically, when I throw bluebonnet seeds on the ground, I have to wait a year, even two, to have mature flowers. When I received the "createdbynature' seeds, I read and followed, some of the instructions; I soaked them overnight, as stated, but simply couldn't wait until fall to sow them (although, I did keep some seed aside for fall planting). From personal experience, bluebonnets seem to like, what one might consider, bad soil. Also, you cannot sow them too deep in the soil, they are more or less, surface sow. I'm really shocked these seeds took within a week, I'm thinking that "possibly" our cold snap helped them along; I can't say for sure. I would recommend these seeds, but make sure you follow directions and have the right type soil; rocky, sandy, clay is what I have - then I LIGHTLY cover the seed with planting soil. I also plant them in a very sunny location.

Missing my Texas bluebonnets in Florida, my husband and I ordered some of these seeds. We let them soak overnight and to our surprise, a few already had a little tail after soaking overnight. We followed planting instructions, put them in the proper soil, have watered every day and everywhere I put seeds they are sprouting. I am beyond the moon excited to see how many actually make flowers this Spring. We count our "sprouts" every day and they are popping up like crazy.
It came very quickly and it is exactly what I wanted
