My bluebonnets that I planted from seed in February are starting to bloom. I thought they would be blue but I got a pale purple/pink bloom on all of them. I wanted to add them to the database but they aren't blue lol.

Thanks Margaret and Sandi! Betsy's purple bluebonnet is beautiful. I really like the deep purple color.
