With rows of colorful tulips spanning six acres, spring is already in full bloom at Texas Tulips, a Dutch-owned farm in San Antonio and Dallas with roots in the Netherlands (a country famous for its tulips). And the good news? You can go see for yourself—and take some tulips home!

Entry to Texas Tulips costs $5. If you want to bring some tulips home, they’re $2.50 per stem. You'll have about 100 varieties to choose from depending on the time of year you visit. As you pick your tulips, you can place them in a picking basket, which will be available on the field. Think of it like apple picking, only more colorful.

Once you’ve picked your favorite tulips, a Texas Tulips employee will wrap them up in wrapping paper and put a special gel on the stems so they stay fresh until you get home. Since the gel will preserve them all day, you can spend the rest of your visit enjoying the field and taking insta-worthy photos. If you bring along toddlers who aren’t ready to pick tulips, there’s a hay maze they can explore.

If this sounds like the ideal spring outing to you, you’ll want to go ASAP. According to its website, Texas Tulips estimates that its tulip season will only last until early March. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to go, though, since the San Antonio location is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Plus, a new location in Pilot Point in Dallas will be opening tomorrow! There, you can pick tulips seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

To plan your floral-filled spring outing, you can visit the Texas Tulip website.
