Wildseed Farms (Fredericksburg, Texas)



This place was one of those “Hey, that looked interesting. Let’s go back. “stops. We were on a girl’s trip, the only kind where you can do that kind of thing, headed to Fredericksburg. We had such a good time there! It wound up being one of the highlights of our weekend.



Wildseed Farms is the nation's largest working wildflower farm with over 200 acres of colorful blooms in season. These fields have been used for seed production for over 35 years.




Bright red Corn Poppies and three colors of Texas bluebonnets greet you in the parking area.



Gloriosa Daisy, cosmos, Corn Poppies, larkspur, phlox, sunflowers, and Texas Bluebonnets are some of the flower varieties you will see growing in the fields during your visit.





A half mile trail lined with a wood look fence leads through the display and trial gardens. Sitting areas and water features are placed along the route.



The Brewbonnet Biergarten offers a place to grab something to eat and drink. Unique jams, jellies, salsas, and other goodies are available for purchasing. They all looked amazing!






They are one of the largest plant nurseries in Central Texas with large selections of annuals, perennials, herbs, topicals, cactus and succulents.





The gift store is packed with, unique pottery, garden accessories, clothing, seeds and much more.





Parking and admission are free. Hours are from 9:30am - 5:00pm daily.




We visited in April. Check here to see what will be in bloom for your visit.
