Hi
I've looked every place I could find and I can't find anything to answer my question. Is it legal to grow Texas bluebonnets in florida? I know it's a silly question but some rules change state to state and I kinda would like to see them again.

Hi Sheep5931, Welcome!

I couldn't find anything about any Lupine (Lupinus) being invasive or pest plants in Florida. There are a few Lupines that grow in Texas but I have no idea how well any of them would do in the Florida climate; it shouldn't hurt to try and see how they behave in your garden:
Bluebonnet (Lupinus texensis)
Sandyland bluebonnet (Lupinus subcarnosus)
Annual lupine (Lupinus concinnus)
Big Bend bluebonnet (Lupinus havardii)
Wild Lupine (Lupinus perennis)

There are two native Lupines in Florida and I'd think they would be available at native plant nurseries:
Lady lupine (Lupinus villosus)
Sky-blue Lupine (Lupinus diffusus)
