Texas Bluebonnets - Texas Pride "It's not only the state flower but also a kind of floral trademark almost as well known to outsiders as cowboy boots and the Stetson hat." He goes on to affirm that "The bluebonnet is to Texas what the shamrock is to Ireland, the cherry blossom to Japan, the lily to France, the rose to England and the tulip to Holland."
Belinda's Dream. Makes a beautiful large Container planting. Zone 5-9 The large, very double pink blossoms come in large clusters from spring until frost. Bred in Texas to withstand hot temperatures, it does well in temperate climates as well. Its vigor and blooming will not be affected by the disease. Light pruning improves appearance and blooming frequency.
Texas Flame: Most spectacular of all tulips, ruffled and flared petals are splashed and striped with brilliant color combinations. The very big flowers look spectacular in the border. A sunny location is advisable, since these flowers open up almost completely on a sunny day, which gives a very special effect. They bloom in early April and have height of 16 inches.
