Wikipedia says:
Quote:
The town derives its name from the prominent 12.5-acre mound located in the southern portion of the town which is covered by wild flowers.
But that's a bit imprecise. Can anyone clarify?

The Flower Mound is located on Flower Mound Road (FM 3040), just east of the intersection with Long Prairie Road (FM 2499).

I remember when it was referred to as "Flower Mound New Town" in radio ads.

It's actually pretty easy to find--it's surrounded by a wrought iron fence with huge gold letters that say "THE FLOWER MOUND" on it. Doesn't get easier than that.
