Maroon Bluebonnet (Aggiebonnet)
(Lupinus texensis)

Maroon Bluebonnet
The only difference between the Maroon Bluebonnet and the blue Bluebonnet is color. The Maroon Bluebonnet took over twenty years to develop. The plant was originally found in the wild near San Antonio, Texas. To keep flowers maroon in the future, remove plants that bloom in other colors as soon as possible. It is a great favorite with Aggies, hence the nickname "Aggiebonnet".



Did you know the Texas Bluebonnet can be grown in many more places than just Texas?!
