There’s no better place to begin than with the best bluebonnets.
Bluebonnets can make the perfect backdrop for the holiday season or a spring-green, floral-themed bed, and are one of the best ways to give your garden a bit of personality.
Here are seven of our favorite bluebonnets.
White-blue bonnetBluebonnets are typically found in warm climates, but they can grow as low as 50 to 60 degrees.
They’re best suited to a sunny spot where they can get full sun.
White bonnets can be hardy in the winter, but be sure to plant them outside.
Pink-red bonnetWhite bonnets, also known as blackbonnets, are often grown in cooler climates, with the shade in the south or west.
While pink-red is a pretty color, the foliage is hardy and produces fruit a few years old.
Pink bonnets are more prolific than other varieties.
White and orange bonnetThese are also known by their name of white-and-orange, and they’re often grown from spring to fall in the southeast.
White is the most popular variety for most gardeners, and orange is a popular choice for those wanting to add a little color to the landscape.
