Capital of Texas

Wildflowers in DeWitt County

One can view wildflowers throughout the year in Texas; however, the most beautiful varieties bloom in the spring of each year. DeWitt County has over 1,000 different species that have been documented blooming at various times throughout the county, which is the reason that DeWitt County is named the "Wildflower Capital of Texas," as designated by the Texas Legislature in 1999. Tour the county lanes and byways and experience natures’ beauty at its best.

The peak wildflower viewing period is hard to predict because so much is dependent on the weather. With all the heavy rains that we have seen this fall we are anticipating a wonderful showing of flowers this spring.

Some years we see wildflowers pop out in mid March and begin to peak in early April. The official celebration of Wildflower Month in DeWitt County is celebrated in April.

Be sure to stop by the Cuero Chamber of Commerce, Agriculture & Visitor Bureau to pick up a brochure to identify the flowers you see and driving maps of scenic areas are also available. The Visitors Center is located at 210 E Main St, Cuero, TX.
