The Truth About Picking Bluebonnets In Texas

If you’re anything like me, you were told growing up not to pick bluebonnets on the side of the road because it was illegal. I spent most of my childhood and most of my adult life driving on by and admiring from a distance because I felt that if I stopped the car, got out and picked one I’d be committing a crime.

APPARENTLY, that was a lie! Who started this lie?! I have gone to Snopes.com and they say it’s NOT illegal. I talked to a police officer and he said, 99% of people think that it’s illegal to pick bluebonnets and the 1% who don’t think it’s illegal are police officers!

So I took it up on myself to search Google and get to the bottom of this mystery and this is what I found…

Bill Powell told TexasTwisted.com, “There is no legislation against picking wildflowers. It is, in fact, not illegal to pick wildflowers.”

I feel like I’ve been duped. (Insert sad face emoji)
