Found wild pink bluebonnet Limestone County

Asked March 28, 2016, 10:45 AM EDT

In reading that wild pink bluebonnet scare very rare, I wanted to notify extension office that I found one growing wild at our Limestone County farm yesterday. I photographed it. Abbott and Parsons seemed to study them and deem them rare. Be glad to send you a photograph if interested. Am I making a big deal over nothing actually rare?Susan Brown Douthit

Susan,
I sent this to several of our specialists to advise us. Don't see these growing wild very often! I have attached 2 articles for you to look at while we are awaiting a response.
