According to the senior botanist at Austin’s Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, we should have a good wildflower season. The fall and winter precipitation, as well as the sleet and snow, have contributed to a good germination.
Sighting of Rudbeckia ( Black-eyed Susan) and Indian Paintbrush are already occurring. This is in spite of the colder than usual winter and the cooler weather still around. This cooler weather will possibly delay the season but if March has good rainfall and warm temperatures this could extend the wildflower season.
