This late bloomer adds color through the late summer and into fall
In Bloom: May-October
Bearing a striking resemblance to a sombrero, the aptly named Mexican Hat is a latecomer to the annual Texas flower fiesta, blooming in May. Although late to the party, this flower enjoys its time in the limelight — often staying in bloom through September and into October.
Flower Fact: Regularly eaten by grazing animals, the Mexican Hat emits a strong odor that repels deer.
