Wildseed Farms ~ Fields of Wildflowers in Fredericksburg, Texas

Updated on August 3, 2017

My grandpa loved gardening. I learned much from him. To this day, I enjoy puttering around in our garden growing plants for beauty & food.

Wildflower Seeds

Wildseed Farms which is just 7 miles east of the Hill Country town of Fredericksburg, Texas offers much more than just wildflower seeds for sale. Be sure and take your camera if visiting there in the Spring and Summer of the year as one will literally see vast fields of flowers in bloom and be able to come away with brilliantly colored pictures of wildflowers.

My husband and I happened to be in that area of Texas in April one year and we decided to see what this largest wildflower farm in the country looked like.

If one can envision hundreds of acres (200 to be exact) of different patches of vividly colored wildflowers swaying in the country breezes, then one has an idea of the appearance of this farming locale.

Walking trails are provided which can take one into the center of some of these wildflowers which are carefully cultivated in order to harvest their seeds.

The name of this establishment is most suitable because farming is the basis of what they do and wildflower seeds are the crux of their business.

But like most businesses, Wildseed Farms has diversified their offerings so as to entice more people to visit and from what we saw they have succeeded.

April is a beautiful time in Texas because of the Texas bluebonnets (our State's official flower) blooming along the highways, in fields and pastures. Despite the cost of gasoline people head out to see the annual blaze of wildflowers which include the bluebonnets and other wildflowers.

Parents take photos of their children sitting amidst the fields of flowers for use in adorning greeting cards later in the year or to simply put into family photo albums to be enjoyed for years to come.

Many of the seeds cultivated at Wildseed Farms undoubtedly end up being distributed along our Texas highways and elsewhere.

Wildflower Plants

My husband and I decided to join the other visitors in strolling through the paths with wildflowers blooming almost everywhere we cast our eyes.

The different wildflowers had signs marking the names which made it interesting as well as helpful in case one was unfamiliar with the different plants and had a desire to grow them.

Seeing a picture on a packet of seed is not quite as nice as seeing a vast field of that wildflower in bloom!

Naturally I was busily engaged with some picture taking and the photos in this post are from that April visit.

Were we to return during the summer months, different wildflowers would be in bloom.

After walking amidst the area where the flowers are grown, one can then purchase that specific garden seed for one's home garden.

Native wildflower seeds as well as more domesticated kinds can be found and wildflower mixes can also be purchased if one wants a mixture of colors and shapes as is found often naturally occurring in nature.

Drummond Phlox

This is a fragrant annual plant native to Texas that generally blooms in the Spring to summer months. It is grown in the southeastern part of the United States from Texas to Florida and also other states in which it has adapted.

A Scottish man by the name of Thomas Drummond (1793 - 1835) took plant seeds he collected in Texas and they made their way back to England where the pretty phlox flowers have been used successfully in European gardens ever since. They like well drained soil and sunny conditions.

There are a variety of colors and growth habits vary in height between eight inches to about two feet. They make pretty bouquets or are nice additions to other cut flower arrangements.

Seed Packets and More

Truthfully we did not know what to expect other than knowing that we would see wildflowers at Wildseed Farms and that we saw in abundance!

This business establishment also offers so much more.

Some of the items one can purchase among other things include the following:

  • pots and jardinieres
  • plants of all types
  • specially prepared foods like local jams and jellies
  • specialty items like statuary for one's garden
  • all types of gift items in addition to an enormous selection of seed packets for sale.

If one needs to study up on the art of gardening before delving in to the process of planting and maintenance...no problem! Gardening books are also available for sale to help in that effort.

Browsing through the gift shop one is likely to see a multitude of items that are not only useful but could make that perfect and pretty gift for other gardeners that one happens to know.

Moss Verbena

If you are looking for a hearty perennial flower that grows in just about all of the southern regions of the United States, originally coming from South America, then this is the plant for you! It grows as an annual plant further north.

It has a sprawling habit and can be a perfect ground cover plant. Moss verbena grows to around a foot or foot and a half in height. It typically has blue to purple to violet coloration and likes growing in full sun.

Another plus is that it is drought resistant. It blooms from late Spring to Early Fall and birds, bees and butterflies love this prolific blooming plant but deer will generally leave it alone.

Wildflower Farms

While there are other wildflower farms located in other parts of the United States, it was a pleasure getting to take a look at the largest one in the Great State of Texas.

As they say..."Everything is bigger and better in Texas!"

Looking at the video below you now know more of what is located at Wildseed Farms including a butterfly exhibit, the Brewbonnet Biergarten (note the German influence in the name) and other things in which makes visiting here a pleasure.

If you are visiting Fredericksburg, Texas be sure to allow a bit of extra time to drive out into the countryside and tour the beautiful fields of flowers and don't forget the picture taking opportunities! Open 7 days a week, a journey to those wildflower fields with all the fluttering butterflies is sure to be a sensory delight.

      Hi Au fait,

      The wildflowers do need to go to seed and fall to the ground for the next years crop to develop. Too bad if they are mowing them early up in your part of Texas. We have seen some of the bluebonnets in town but have yet to take a drive into the country which we need to do soon if we are going to enjoy them this year. Hope we all get more rain in Texas this year! Thanks for the pin!

      The wildflowers here have only just begun to blossom about a week ago. They're very late this year because of the unusual and extremely cold winter (compared to normal) we've had.

      I see people mowing our wildflowers while they're still in blossom and I find that offensive. I thought it was illegal to destroy certain wildflowers like the Texas bluebonnet, Indian paintbrush, primrose, etc. I'd much rather see them than the vast expanses of clipped weeds and grasses.

      We're also in a serious drought. It's hardly rained at all this year so far and on the few occasions it has it was more of a drizzle or a mist. We've had perhaps one good Texas-style rain this calendar year, and even that was short.

      This looks like a great place to visit and I hope people will plant some of these flowers instead of destroying them in order to grow a new mini-castle instead.

      Pinning this to Awesome Hubpages. Great information and gorgeous photos as always!

      Thanks, Peggy. The Admiral Nimitz Museum is also on our list of places to visit, and we want to soak up the German culture, too. I've been to Wurstfest in New Braunfels but none of the cultural events in Fredericksburg. I think we'll visit in a couple of weeks. Enjoy the wildflowers, and have a lovely Easter!

      Hi Annette,

      That would be a nice trip from San Antonio to Fredericksburg this time of year. You should see many wildflowers along the roadways including those planted at Wildseed Farms.

      Have you ever visited the Nimitz museum in Fredericksburg? I have written a hub about it. It is a fantastic place for history buffs who wish to learn more about the war in the Pacific during WWII. Plan a minimum of a half day to see it...and that would be pushing it. Nice thing is that you can go in and out and return the same day if you wish to take a break as we did.

      Enjoy that new car of yours! Thanks for your comment.

      Hi moonlake,

      I grew some red poppies when we lived in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin but have not tried growing them in Texas. Obviously they grow here given the fields we saw at Wildseed Farms. I well remember the beautiful wild orange poppies in California that we saw while on vacation out there. Thanks for the vote up + share.

      Hi RTalloni,

      At some point in the year they obviously let the wildflowers go to seed so that they can harvest them. While interesting, it might not be the prettiest time to visit. If you are seriously thinking of making a visit, you might want to give them a call and get a "bloom report" if not going in the Spring and Summer months. The rest of the things at Wildseed Farms is interesting. Please come back and give us a report if you visit in October. Thanks!

      Hi agusfanani,

      I believe the entire purpose at Wildseed Farms is to grow the wildflowers...let them go to seed and then harvest the seeds. They can then package them as single sources of flowers or mix them up purposely and sell them that way. As you can see they have also grown to include a gift shop, restaurant, etc. Yes, they cultivate them in a big scale. Thanks for your comment.

    • agusfanani profile image

      Hi marcoujor,

      Driving across Texas from tip to tip in almost any direction is like driving across two or more other states combined! According to the news the other night on television they are thinking of raising the speed limits again. When one is driving out in the wild open spaces of West Texas (for instance) this makes great sense. One can go an hour or more without even seeing another car!

      You will be way up in the Panhandle of Texas. With maps and guides you will be able to figure out distances and approximate timing (without road repairs, of course) and hopefully get to see more of the State when you come this direction.

      Happy Easter to you also!

      Thanks for taking the time to look up the town, Peggy... I know in PA cities can be as far as 8-hours away by car so I can imagine Texas is even further in parts... but we may be able to build more time into our trip... take care & have a wonderful Easter.

      Hi Frankie,

      When we visited the wineries on the Bluebonnet trail last year, we were given packets of bluebonnet and other wildflower seeds which we scattered at the right time of year in our greenbelt area. Very few wildflowers came up this year due to the drought conditions. Maybe next year! Thanks for your comment. I like poppies also.

      Hello GNelson,

      I guess it makes sense that places like Wildseed Farms and others exist, or where would we get all of those flower seeds? Our bluebonnet season as well as many other wildflowers along the highways and fields in Texas was very sparse this year (poor showing) due to the lack of needed rain. Maybe next year! Thanks for the comment.

      Hello Bob Ewing,

      Wildseed Farms just outside of Fredericksburg, Texas is indeed a great place to visit in the spring and summer months when the fields of flowers are in full color. Thanks for the first comment!
