Product description

“TEXAS BLUEBONNETS” ARE AN ANNUAL WILDFLOWER THAT WOULD MAKE A GREAT MASS PLANTING IN YOUR FLOWERBEDS! THESE BLUEBONNETS ARE THE STATE FLOWER OF TEXAS, A VARIETY OF LUPINE THAT RE-SEEDS ITSELF IN THE FIELDS AND PRAIRIES. BEING A WILDFLOWER, TEXAS BLUEBELLS THRIVE IN SANDY OR GRAVELLY, WELL DRAINED SOIL, AND THEY REQUIRE AT LEAST 8 HOURS OF SUN A DAY. DESERT DWELLERS, THESE BLUEBONNETS DO NOT GROW WELL IN ZONES 4 AND LOWER, COLD CLIMATES CAUSE THEM TO STOP GROWING AND DIE IN THE WINTER. TEXAS BLUEBONNETS TOLERATE DROUGHT EXTREMELY WELL AFTER THEY’RE ESTABLISHED. IN THE SOUTHERN USA, THEY SHOULD BE PLANTED IN SEPTEMBER OR OCTOBER, AND THEY WILL BLOOM IN THE SPRING. TEXAS BLUEBONNETS HAVE A WAY OF REPRODUCING THAT MAKES THEM UNIQUE AND CAN RESULT IN POOR GERMINATION. THE HULLS OF THE SEEDS ARE VERY HARD, AND IT CAN TAKE MORE THAN ONE GROWING SEASON FOR THE HULLS TO WEAR DOWN AND FOR GERMINATION TO TAKE PLACE ON IT’S OWN. THIS IS ITS NATURAL DEFENSE AGAINST DROUGHT CONDITIONS, AND INSURES THAT SEEDS WILL REMAIN FOR THE NEXT YEAR. THIS CAN FRUSTRATE GARDENERS, BUT IT CAN BE OVERCOME BY SCARCIFYING THE SEEDS. YOU CAN DO THIS BY NICKING THE SEEDS WITH A SHARP KNIFE, RUBBING LIGHTLY ON COARSE SANDPAPER, OR FREEZE THEM OVERNIGHT AND THEN POUR BOILING WATER OVER THEM, LETTING THEM SOAK FOR ABOUT 5HRS. MAKE SURE TO KEEP THE SCARCIFIED SEEDS WELL WATERED AFTER YOU PLANT THEM.
