Fredericksburg and the surrounding Hill Country are well known for the rolling vineyards, but the plentiful array of wildflowers may come as a pleasant surprise. Enjoy the great outdoors by heading to some of the area’s top destinations for wildflower viewing.
Vibrant reds bloom in rows as far as the eye can see, while purple splashes the horizon in the other direction. For a colorful nature experience, head to Wildseed Farms, comprised of over 200 acres of wildflower fields in Fredericksburg, as well as more than 1,000 acres in the greater Texas region. A visit to this working farm is both inspirational to aspiring gardeners and visually appealing for anyone hoping to enjoy a picturesque day outdoors.
A half-mile trail meanders its way through fields of wildflowers, perfect for a leisurely stroll. Pause for a break and to enjoy the views at covered sitting areas strategically placed along the trail. Bring along your camera to capture photos with a naturally beautiful backdrop, as butterflies and hummingbirds flit around. If you see something you’d love to incorporate into your own landscaping, the knowledgeable staff at the onsite nursery will be able to point you in the right direction, offering both live plants and seed catalogue purchases.
Of course, it wouldn’t be wine country without a tasting room onsite at the Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg TX. Linger in the Brewbonnet Biergarten to enjoy a glass of wine, a cold beer, or their famed homemade peach ice cream made with locally grown peaches from the Stonewall area.
