Today is the grand opening of Texas-Tulips San Antonio! This family-owned u-pick tulip farm is located at 15122 FM 775 in La Vernia, just 30 minutes south of San Antonio. The farm is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. So head over and tip-toe through the tulip fields – and pick a beautiful bouquet to take home with you.

Entrance fee is $5 per person – free for children under 12. U-pick is $2.50 per stem – tulip flowers will be wrapped in pretty paper and stems will be put in flower gel. Various packages are available. You can also purchase tulip bulbs and plant your own tulip garden.

Tulip season is short – just now through early March, depending on the weather and mother nature.

In honor of San Antonio’s 300th anniversary, I’m ranking Texas Tulips No. 52 in my 300 Reasons to Love San Antonio list. Another great reason to live, work, buy a home and enjoy the beauty of San Antonio.
