RICHARDSON – Rows of beautiful colors have started to appear on medians and along roadsides as wildflower season is in full blossom around Richardson.
Richardson Parks and Recreation Department staff plant the seeds in the fall covering 40 acres of park area, traffic medians and trails. The mix includes red corn poppy, corn flower and rocket larkspur.
The wildflowers have been planted around the community since 1990 as part of the City’s annual wildflower planting program. The wildflowers help make Richardson one of the most picturesque in North Texas.
Some of the best locations in the city for wildflower photo opps are usually near Richardson City Hall, the Richardson Public Library and at several community parks. It’s recommended visitors to these sites observe social distancing guidelines.
