Between late February and early March, Big Bend National Park is the place to be to see bluebonnets, cactus blooms, and ocotillo wildflowers.
The bluebonnets found in this desert-like area are different from the ones found in Central Texas. In fact, Big Bend bluebonnets are taller and sparser.
If you’re a flower fanatic and can’t wait for wildflowers season in Central Texas, take the scenic wildflower drive to Big Bend. Highway 118 from Alpine to Terlingua is a gorgeous drive during the spring!
