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."
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.
