AUSTIN (April 17, 2014) A crop of maroon bluebonnets that bloomed in the shadow of the University of Texas Tower in Austin won’t be plucked after all.
The suspicion is that Aggie pranksters planted the Alamo Fire variety of the state flower.
Texas A&M’s colors are maroon and white.
A UT official promised earlier this week to remove the off-color bluebonnets, but UT issued a statement Thursday that said the flowers are safe.
"UT Austin has no immediate or official plans to pull up the Aggie-colored wildflowers,” the statement said.
