Pink Bluebonnet

by Stephanie Suesan Smith, Ph.D. on April 29, 2011

A pink bluebonnet may seem a contradiction in terms, but this one was nestled in a clump of traditionally colored bluebonnets.  Apparently, pink ones occur naturally every once in a while.  Texas A&M used that to breed maroon bluebonnets, which really stand out.  Imagine a maroon, light pink, and blue field of bluebonnets in the shape of a flag.  It would be cool.
