We recently posted these 2017 Wildflower Forecasts from the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center:
“Hold onto your hat and fasten your seatbelt,” Andrea DeLong-Amaya, the Center’s Director of Horticulture. “Wildflower season is taking off faster than you expect,” K. Angel Horne, author and the Center’s PR & Marketing Coordinator.
Our Central Texas spring wildflower season DID arrive earlier than usual this year, and we’ve enjoyed EVERY moment of the bright displays which began early in March! 
Thank you, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, for your expert predictions! 
We encourage you to continue monitoring their site for wildflower updates!
