Artist's Description

Photographed in a field in Flower Mound, Texas. Shot with Nikon D3200.

The Bluebonnet is the state flower of Texas. It can be seen blooming on the roadsides and in field in early Spring.

From the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center:
Lupinus texensis

Texas lupine has larger, more sharply pointed leaves and more numerous flower heads than similar lupines. Light-green, velvety, palmately compound leaves (usually five leaflets) are born from branching, 6-18 in. stems. These stems are topped by clusters of up to 50 fragrant, blue, pea-like flowers. The tip of the cluster is conspicuously white.

This is the species often planted by highway departments and garden clubs and is one of the six Lupinus species which are the state flower of Texas.
