Bluebonnet Flower 4 - #1C1CF0

Lupinus texensis Bluebonnet is a name given to any number of species of the genus Lupinus predominantly found in southwestern United States and is collectively the state flower of Texas. The shape of the petals of the flower resembles the bonnet worn by pioneer women to shield them from the sun.

It is a biennial plant which begins its life as a small gravel-like seed. The seed has a hard seed coat that must be penetrated by wind, rain and weather over the course of a few months. Growth continues over the mild winter months and then in the spring will take off and rapidly grow larger before sending up a tall plume of blue flowers.

It has been found in the wild with isolated mutations in other colors, most notably all-white flowers, pink, and maroon. These mutations have since been selectively bred to produce different color strains that are available commercially.
