There are few things more relaxing and enjoyable than taking a leisurely drive through and around San Antonio during the autumn. The variety of wildflowers to be seen is simply stunning; there are over 5,000 varieties of wildflowers found in the state of Texas!
Although spring is peak season for the state flower – the bluebonnet – there are still ample opportunities to enjoy other wildflowers in the fall. From now through December, you can enjoy paintbrushes, butter-n-eggs, blackeyed Susans, Scottish thistle, buttercups, and lantana, as well as the leaves changing on the many oak trees in the area.
If you're in the mood for a day trip, head to Austin to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. Founded by the former first lady and actress Helen Hayes in 1982, the Center's gardens showcase the native plants of the Central Texas Hill Country.
You may also enjoy the Hill Country's Lost Maples State Natural Area. Lost Maples’ biggest draw is the changing of the leaves each fall. Lost Maples' dramatic fall foliage is attributed to the high concentration of maple trees within the area. While maples can be found in a variety of areas in Texas, few dense concentrations exist, hence the name – Lost Maples.
