Picking Bluebonnets In Texas, Safely Of Course
So if the special bluebonnet is in a public area, and not in certain areas, the Texan can easily take the perennial home. This info comes to us from Take Care Of Texas and the Texas Department Of Public Safety. But there's a reason we mentioned public area.
As it turns out, the are certain caveats to picking the state flower. If that previously mentioned bluebonnet was in a private property area, touching or trying to take the flower wouldn't be a good decision, as the individual could end up with a criminal trespassing charge.
