SUMMARY: The Bluebonnet became the state flower of Texas in 1901. There were three main contenders for the state flower, including the Cotton Bowl, Indian paintbrush, and the bluebonnet. Eventually, the bluebonnet won and became the state flower. It is currently not illegal to pick bluebonnets in Texas, but it is advised to respect the flowers and private property. The gold poppies that grow in El Paso’s Franklin Mountains are a result of people planting poppy seeds in the 1930s. It is debated how the poppies originally came to the area, but they continue to cover the mountains in a beautiful display each spring.

We’re back again talking about all things Texas. With spring here, we’re discussing bluebonnet history and how it became the state flower of Texas.
