University of Texas targeted in clever flower prank

Friday, April 11, 2014 - 8:08pm

Landscapers at the University of Texas at Austin think the school may be the target of a plant prank from their rival, Texas A&M.

Maroon bluebonnets popped up in the flower bed around the UT tower this season.That happens to be Texas A&M's colors.

The flowers stand out from the blue blooms the school planted. No one's confessed to planting the flowers, but several years ago Texas A&M researchers were able to develop maroon bluebonnets.

Workers will start collecting the seeds of these flowers to keep them from spreading.
