Wildflower Forecast Wilts

Robert Hughes

A botanist says the lack of rain in the fall will mean Texas' wildflower display won't be as impressive as it was last year.

Damon Waitt, senior director of the University of Texas at Austin's Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, says, "I'm cautiously optimistic at this point and think it's going to be a decent year, just not a banner year."

A release from the center Tuesday says that with the cold weather that hit many regions, native wildflowers aren't yet blooming in many areas.

One bit of good news is that last year's impressive display will mean more seeds were produced that could come up in a few years with good rains in the fall.
