Bluebonnets – March 19

Washington County wildflowers are looking good! The bluebonnets had a late start, but they are starting to fill in nicely now throughout the county. We still expect peak to be Easter weekend and for bluebonnets to still be enjoyable by mid-April.

Here are some safe viewing spots, great for getting out with the kiddos…

  • FM 2447 and Hwy 290 at First Baptist Church of Chappell Hill (see note below)
  • Washington on the Brazos – ask the park staff where to find flowers
  • Wood Ridge Blvd in Brenham
  • Industrial Blvd in Brenham
  • Along the road beyond Sealand Seafood & Steak in Brenham
  • Old Baylor Park in Independence
Taken at Home Depot 3-15-18

Good driving routes are as follows. Flowers along these roads will get better over the next couple of weeks.

  • Hwy 290 East and West outside of Brenham and around town
  • FM 1155 to 2193 north of Chappell Hill, and FM 1155 beyond to Washington on the Brazos
  • Hwy 105 east to Washington on the Brazos
  • Old Independence Rd from Brenham to Independence

First Baptist Church of Chappell Hill on FM 2447/Hwy 290 East will be open to the public for photos in the bluebonnets, and they’ve even rented a port-o-potty for visitors to use.  Please note that they will be reserving their parking lot on Sunday mornings for members to attend services.

PLEASE: obey traffic laws, don’t cross fences onto private property, and look out for snakes & ants!

Stay tuned here and on Facebook for updates in the coming weeks!

    Will you be doing the interactive map you have done the last several years

      Hi Edward. Yes, we have a map on the main Wildflower Watch page that shows pins on the roads of Washington County. They aren’t EXACT pinned locations, but just to mark the roads where flowers can be enjoyed. The details are in the actual posts.
