Bluebonnets at Grapevine Lake in North Texas. Lupinus texensis, the Texas bluebonnet, is a species of lupine endemic to Texas. With other related species of lupines also called bluebonnets, it is the state flower of Texas. It is a biennial plant which begins its life as a small, gravel-like seed. The scent of these blossoms has been diversely described; many people say they give off no scent at all, while a few have described the scent as 'sickly sweet'. It has been found in the wild with isolated mutations in other colors, most notably all-white flowers, pink, and maroon.
Locally known as Grape Lake, Grapevine Lake is a reservoir located in the North Texas region, approximately 20 mi northwest of Dallas and northeast of Fort Worth. It was impounded in 1952 by the US Army Corps of Engineers when they dammed Denton Creek, a tributary of Trinity River.
