A popular spot in Texas is opening up soon with more than 100 varieties of tulips.

Texas Tulips started nearly 30 years ago and now has become a travel destination.

What is Texas Tulips?

Texas Tulips is the largest tulip farm in Texas. Most tulip farms are in the northwest, but this magical place is right here in Texas. Run by a Dutch family who migrated to Texas to start their tulip farm, this place is a flower-lovers haven.

When is the best time to visit Texas Tulips in Pilot Point?

The optimal time to visit Texas Tulips in Pilot Point each year is usually mid-March.

On a daily basis, weekdays are when you’ll find fewer crowds; weekends are the busiest times. On an hourly basis, visiting earlier in the day is usually better if you want to avoid crowds. It costs $5 to get in per person.

How does it work:

  • Take a picking basket, which is available on the field.
  • Pick the tulips you want to buy and create your own wonderful bunch of tulips.
  • Bring us your tulips—the staff will wrap the tulips for you in pretty wrapping paper and put a special gel on the stems to preserve your tulips until you can get them home or on your next visit.
  • Take your tulips home or enjoy the rest of your day—the gel will preserve them all day long.

What will you find at Texas Tulips? 

1. A Limited Tulip Season: The blooms are only on display from late February to early mid-April.

2. Go Early: For any latecomers or if you can’t visit until the end of the season, there will still be a few beautiful rows of tulips to pick from and photograph.

3. Baskets for Flower Picking: They supply cute baskets for holding your tulips as you pick them.

4. Make Your Own Bouquet: At the end of your time picking flowers, you take them up to the counter to purchase the stems at $2.50 per stem. The Texas Tulips staff will teach you how to pick the tulips properly, which is by pulling straight up on the very bottom of the stem.

5. Weekend Lines: Go early and try not to go on the weekends or try to arrive as early as possible.
6. Amenities: Bathrooms, picnic benches, and concession stands.
7. Tulip Varieties: The tulips are planted in rows and are labeled by type. Each type blooms at different times, which helps make the season longer.
8. Hay Maze for Kids: For your little ones who might not be quite ready to pick tulips, they have set up a hay maze. This maze gives children the chance to explore and learn through play while enjoying the fresh air.
9. They also hold a Christmas tulip fair in December.
