Experts say recent rain across much of Texas has contributed to a spectacular 2019 wildflowers season.

The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department announced the colorful displays. They range from bluebonnets to buttercups. They include Indian blanket. Jason Singhurst is a botanist. He says admirers of wildflowers can expect more concentrations through April and into May.

Agency officials say Texas has plenty of photo opportunities. It has more than 90 state parks and nearly 6,000 plant species. 

Central Texas features bluebonnets. It also has Mexican hat and white milkwort. The Coastal Texas prairies have prairie clovers and silverleaf sunflowers. So do the barrier islands and South Texas.

East Texas has trout lilies. It also has wisteria and flowering dogwood. North Texas includes showy evening primrose. It also has fleabane and wild indigo.

West Texas has rigid paintbrush. And it has yellow rocknettle and the purple wooly locoweed.

    I think that people would come to see the wildflowers because there are all kinds of beautiful types of flowers in Texas. Especially because of all the floods that Texas has had recently. Also because of all the floods, it has sparked the wildflower to grow.
