A 2013 Texas Wildflower Prediction from WildflowerHaven Community
The Good, Bad and the Hope
The Good: September rainfall was above normal in most areas. In two test spots in the San Antonio area, bluebonnet seedlings have developed. One test spot in an area northwest of San Antonio had extensive coverage of rosettes by early November.
The Bad: Rainfall for October and November has been below normal in most areas.
The Hope: Despite the lower than normal rainfall in October and November, both test spots in the San Antonio show healthy growth of bluebonnet and other wildflower seedlings. There has been enough rainfall to keep seedlings alive and well. Hopefully by mid-January the rainfall will approach normal amounts and encourage deep root growth.
