Where to Find Flower Fields In and Around Dallas

Looking for flower fields in Dallas?

Well, you’re in luck!

Flowers show up seasonally throughout the year in Dallas, with the majority blooming in the spring and summer.

As an Instagram influencer, flower fields make for a gorgeous backdrop for photos, so naturally, I’m always on the hunt for them.

After living here for over 5 years, I feel I can safely say I’ve gotten a good handle on the best flower fields in and around Dallas.

I’ll cover bluebonnets, tulips, sunflowers, and other flower fields near Dallas!

So without further ado, here are where you can find flower fields in Dallas, and when you should visit for the best spring blooms!

*Disclaimer: Please be careful to never trample the flowers! We want these beauties to last for everyone to see!*

Bluebonnets near Dallas

I’ll start with our State flower: the Texas Bluebonnet.

Bluebonnets typically bloom from mid-March and peak season is mid-April, with most of the flowers fading away by April’s end.

But you never know! Some years, you will find bluebonnets blooming in early March or up until May!

Regardless, I’d say mid-April is your best bet for finding these intoxicating wildflowers in full bloom.

Ennis Bluebonnet Trail

Ennis is just over an hour’s drive from Dallas, and trust me, these gorgeous blooms are worth it!

Also, you might get a blend of bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrushes depending on when you go.

Check out my Ennis Bluebonnets Trail post before visiting to learn everything you need to know about how to find the best blooms and the best photo spots!

Rules: No picking the flowers! 

Sugar Ridge Road

You can find my favorite flower fields alongside Sugar Ridge Road right by Ennis.

The first year I went was during peak season and it was full of bluebonnets!

But in previous years, I’ve visited around April 20th and have found a bunch of Indian Paintbrushes mixed in with the bluebonnets here instead. They’re still so beautiful, though!

Read more about the Ennis Bluebonnets here.

Tulips Near Dallas

There’s only one place near Dallas where you can see tulips in rows like the photo below, and that place is:

Texas Tulips

Tulips are the earliest blooming flowers in Texas, blooming as early as February!

Usually, the tulips are in bloom from late February until early April, but this depends on the weather.

There is a $5 entrance fee at Texas Tulips, and each tulip stem costs $2.50. With so many of them in rows, however, you’ll definitely feel like you’ve personally visited a tulip farm.

*Disclaimer: I’ve noticed that when they first open and when they’re about to close there aren’t as many tulips blooming!*

The Texas Tulips website informs you how many Tulips are in bloom, so do check before going!

Read more about what you can expect at Texas Tulips here, including some photo inspiration! This is truly one of the best flower fields near Dallas, so don’t miss this spot!

Sunflower Fields Near Dallas

Did you know there are multiple sunflower fields in Dallas?

Well, more like around Dallas.

But trust me, these are worth the drive if you want a photo with sunflowers! These fields are gorgeous, I hope you fall in love with them as I did!

Bloomer’s Garden Flower Farm (formerly Wild Berry Farms)

Wild Berry Farms, now called Bloomer’s Garden Flower Farm, is in Sadler, TX, about an hour directly north of Dallas. There is a small fee of $6 to enter the farm, and each sunflower stem costs $1-3.

Bring scissors and a vase so that you can take home your favorite sunflower stems!

Also, there’s more to do here than just see the sunflowers!

You can go berry picking and look at the cute goats and other farm animals they have on-site.

Their sunflowers usually bloom in June/July and then again in October, but you can easily check their site here to check on the flower status before visiting.

Highway Sunflowers

Historically, there are not one but three great places along roads or highways where you’ll find gorgeous rows of sunflowers. However, this could change year by year, so keep that in mind!!

About an hour south of Dallas in Hillsboro along Hwy 35, you’ll find the magnificent sunflower field pictured above. (Exact coordinates for this location: 32°04’39.5″N 97°06’18.1″W.)

It is literally right off the highway, so you just park on the shoulder and take a photo in front of the acres of gorgeous flowers here!

This photo is from when we visited back on July 1st, 2020 and they were in full bloom.

You can also find two sunflower fields right off of the highway in Ennis along Hwy 287, north of the Texas Motorplex.

The last big sunflower field I know of is a full mile of sunflowers on Fiddlers Road in Whitewright, TX.

Be respectful of the flowers because these are private farms.

Yesterland Farm (Mini Sunflower Season)

This flower field spot is just under an hour away from downtown Dallas. Come mid-September, Yesterland Farm in Canton has sunflowers during their opening weekend! Included in a ticket to their September Fall Festival is the chance to wander through the farm’s zinnia and sunflower field, with flowers available to pick and take home for an additional charge. Their Instagram also has updates on the sunflowers!

Popular Sunflower Fields Across Texas

In case you’re planning a road trip or have family elsewhere in Texas, I wanted to include a few more farms with sunflower fields worth visiting! These spots are definitely a long drive from Dallas, but on the off chance you’re in the area, check these out!

P-6 Farms

P-6 Farms in Montgomery, Texas is just under three hours from Dallas, but it’s a great place to find a gorgeous sunflower field for that perfect picture. You need to buy your tickets first in order to pick sunflowers (that sell for $4 a bloom). In the right season, you can also do some blackberry picking while you’re there!

Dewberry Farm

Located in Brookshire, TX, about 3.5 hours away from Dallas, Dewberry Farm is definitely a family-friendly spot that offers food, fun, flowers, and 40+ attractions under its belt. Their sunflowers bloom from May to July, so that’s the best time to see them. Just be sure to check their website before going to the area since they’re usually only open on Fridays and weekends in time for their festivals. 

Froberg’s Farm

Fan of both strawberries and sunflowers? You’re in luck because Froberg’s Farm in Alvin, Texas, may just have both when you visit! It’s just under four hours from Dallas, so this spot is great if you’re planning to visit the Houston area.

Their Fall Festival from September to November is definitely a great event to attend since Froberg’s Farm hosts a ton of activities, such as making your way through corn mazes, games like plastic duck races, a kid-friendly “Bee Coaster” ride pulled by a tractor, and, of course, flower picking! 

The Robinson Family Farm

October weekends are the best time to visit The Robinson Family Farm, which is when you can enjoy their humongous sunflower field! This sunflower field is just under two hours from Dallas.

Maxwell’s Pumpkin Farm  

Maxwell’s Pumpkin Farm along Amarillo, Texas, is a great place to visit towards the end of September and into early October. Obviously, I don’t expect you to drive 5.5 hours to visit this farm from Dallas. But I wanted to stick this in here in case you have plans to head west!

They have four acres of stunning sunflower fields containing 10 different varieties of sunflowers! Not just the usual yellow variant we know and love, but also some white, pale yellow, and dark red flowers that can even grow to about 8 feet!

Wildflowers and Other Flower Fields Near Dallas

I’ve covered bluebonnets, tulips, and sunflowers, and now it’s time for wildflowers!

White Rock Lake Wildflowers

White Rock Lake is in the heart of Dallas and is one of my favorite spots to shoot photos, whether there are flowers or not.

Starting in April or May, white flowers pop up in the fields of White Rock Lake, and they usually last until June.

For reference, this photo was taken at the end of May. The one above it was taken in June!

I’m not entirely sure what kind of flowers these are, but they are potentially Yarrow (according to an app on my phone).

Read more about what you’ll find at White Rock Lake here!

Wildflowers in Garland

We happened upon these wildflowers when we were at Firewheel Town Center at the end of June.

A few weeks later, even more were in bloom!

This location is pretty much purely if you need flowers to shoot in front of for a quick photo.

Why? Well, you’re basically in a parking lot!

You can’t tell, but right behind me in this photo is a small road, and in front of me is the edge of the parking lot for Firewheel.

The location is right by the intersection of Theatre Way and Horseshoe Drive.

Wildseed Farms in Fredricksburg

It’s a bit of a drive to get to Wildseed Farms considering it’s at Fredericksburg along Texas Hill Country, which in itself is already 1.5 hours away from Austin, and over an hour away from San Antonio.

But I wanted to include this spot in case you have a trip planned to the Texas Hill Country!

Fortunately, aside from visiting their gorgeous wildflower garden, there are a lot of things to enjoy in this spot!

Of course, you came here for their flower fields first and foremost! Their lovely walking trails are full of poppies and bluebonnets in the spring, and cosmos, sunflowers, and zinnias in the summer. These flowers will make a stunning backdrop to your pictures when you visit.

After that, you can celebrate taking that perfect shot for your Instagram by partaking in wine tasting or even grabbing some grub!

Beautiful Parks and Flower Gardens Around Dallas

While these aren’t fields of flowers, they are gorgeous places to look at flowers! The above photo was taken at the rose garden at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden- I’ll cover more about that in just a second.

First, I’ve got to start with:

The Dallas Arboretum

The is full of flowers and beautiful fountains. It’s worth visiting all year round (it even is incredible in the winter!) 

There is usually some sort of theme, like tulips in the spring and 12 Days of Christmas in the winter.

Unless you have a membership, it costs $20 per adult to enter (you can see full admission info here).

It’s also on my list of Instagrammable Places in Dallas, which you can see here!

The Fort Worth Botanic Garden

Established in 1934, the Fort Worth Botanic Garden is the oldest major botanic garden in Texas!

Be prepared to walk a lot as this garden is huge!

My favorite parts of the garden are the rose garden and the Japanese garden.

Admission is $12 for adults and $6 for children; you can see ticketing info and hours here.

Flippen Park

This is a small little park in Highland Park but it’s always so perfectly landscaped that I figured it was worth putting on here!

I dub Flippen Park “the most beautiful park in Dallas,” and one reason why is because of its beautiful flowers.

For most of the late spring and early summer, you’ll see the flowers you see above.

They are behind the gorgeous gazebo at Flippen Park… check it out here!

The Tyler Rose Garden

This is the largest rose garden in America and is rightfully located in “the Rose Capital of America” (aka. Tyler, Texas).

The roses are at their peak in mid-April and mid-October, but there are roses all year round in different areas of the garden. (For instance, I took this photo in July and found these bushes in bloom.)

And great news – it’s free to enter!

Learn more about things to do in Tyler here!

Seasonal Crops

Flowers aren’t the only things that bloom near Dallas! Here are some crops that grow around here that are also photo-worthy and fun to explore.

Blueberries

My favorite blueberry farm is Blueberry Hill Farm in Edom, TX.

With rows and rows of blueberries and a shop that sells delicious blueberry donuts, this place is a MUST!

Peak blueberry season is usually in June and July, but you’ll want to check their site here before visiting to make sure the blueberries are ripe for picking.

There is also another blueberry farm in Tyler, the Tyler Blueberry Farm.

Pumpkins

Some of my favorite pumpkin patches for pumpkin photos near Dallas are Halls Pumpkin Farm in Grapevine, the Dallas Arboretum, and Ruibal’s at the Dallas Farmer’s Market (pictured above).

These places usually set their patches up in September, but you can check their social feeds and websites to confirm when they’re ready.

Check out my full guide to pumpkin patches in DFW here! It has over 25 pumpkin patches on it, a map of their locations, and my favorite fall photo spots!

Vineyards

Here is a list of some fantastic wineries that have vineyards near Dallas:

  1. Kiepersol Winery is my favorite! Absolutely beautiful but it is about 2 hours away near Tyler.
  2. Hidden Hangar Winery in Denison
  3. San Martino Winery in Rockwall
  4. Eden Hill Winery & Vineyards in Celina
  5. Delaney Vineyards in Grapevine

Vines in Texas usually start growing in mid-to-late March and aren’t at their full thickness for a couple of months.

The vines stay green usually until October, so chances are good you’ll see full vines from late May to early October.

In conclusion…

I hope you are excited to check out flower fields in Dallas!

Make sure you plan ahead to ensure whatever flower you want to see is in bloom when you visit!

And if you know of any flower fields that I haven’t mentioned, please let me know in the comments!

Happy flower finding,

  1. Where can I go in August for flower pictures? I think sunflowers have already wilted in Dallas. any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Hi Rita! By August usually the only flowers I see are at landscaped parks like Flippen Park, Lakeside Park, and the Dallas Arboretum (I believe the arboretum is still closed right now). Also, some sunflower fields bloom again in the fall, so you might see them again in October!

    1. Hi Faye! I list the various sunflower fields around Dallas in my post. As I understand, Wildberry Farms typically has a fall sunflower crop around October. Check their site for updates on if they plan to open again in the fall! Hopefully, they will!

    1. Hey Teresa! Depending on how long the bluebonnets last, they might still be around at the end of April! You can learn more about the bluebonnets here! I also love the Dallas Arboretum and Fort Worth Botanical Garden since they’ve got flowers basically year-round!

    1. Hi Sher! The closest red poppy fields that I know of are in Georgetown, Texas. They are famous for them! It’s a bit of a drive, but they sure are gorgeous when they’re in bloom! They are usually in bloom until late April, so now would be the perfect time to head to Georgetown for a day trip or a weekend getaway!

  2. This is awesome! Thank you! Just as an update, Wildberry farms is no longer doing pick your own according to their website. ???? they still sell, but you cannot wander their rows and pick!

    We found a fabulous sunflower field off I-45. From DFW exit Palmer and take access road like you’re headed to Ennis, they will be on the right hand side of the road.

    1. You are so right, I just checked and saw that same thing! So unfortunate, we loved this place!! Thank you for that tip about the I-45 sunflower field! I’m having issues editing posts that have already been published but once I get that fixed, I’ll update it! Thanks again!

  3. Hi, do you have a gps location for the sunflower fields near zen is and Whitewright? Also, is there a way we can find out if the flowers are still there? Thanks.

    1. Unfortunately, I haven’t been to the Whitewright location, so I don’t have GPS coordinates for you. But usually they are in bloom in July, so I don’t know if they’d be around in August! :/

  4. Hi! My mom is coming into town late march- early april… from your list, where would you take your mother who loves flowers during that time? Thank you!!!

    1. Hi Anne! You should check if the tulips are still in bloom at that time- the season usually ends in very early April but depending on the weather it may last longer or be shorter. Also, check on the status of the bluebonnets, too, in case they bloom early!
