Do you know your Wildflowers?
How many names of wildflowers do you know?
Considering that there are 5000 flowering plants in Texas, at least a thousand of which can be called ‘wild flowers,’ it’s probably safe to say, not many.
This beginners’ guide will, I hope, help to put names to some of the more common ones, provide encouragement to search for the uncommon ones and give information about some of the interesting plants around us. You will find names, locations and many little-known facts that will entertain and enlighten.
