My photo-collection of wild flowers from Texas. (4/28/2007)
I don't know too much about biology or flowers, but I was able to take some photos of wildflowers on my trips. I was not able to get the name of all flowers, so if you know it and want to contribute, I will appreciate it.
Beach morning glory (Ipomoea stolonifera)
I'm not sure if this is the right name for this flower, but looks quite similar.
Blackfoot daisy (Melampodium leucanthum)
Bluebonnets (Lupinus texensis )
Also know as the State Flower or Texas Bluebonets.
Chocolate flower (Berlandiera lyrata ), a.k.a. green eyes.
Not sure if this is the right name of the flower.
Foxglove (Penstemon laxiflorus)
Not a clear photo, but I think is the right flower.
Huisache daisy (Amblyolepis setigera)
Indian blanket (Gaillardia pulchella), a.k.a. firewheel.
Phlox (Phlox drummondii)
Not sure if this is the right flower.
Pink evening primroses (Oenothera speciosa)
I believe it is also called buttercups.
Rain lilies (Cooperia pedunculata)
Spiderwort (Tradescantia gigantea)
Verbena (Verbena spp.)
prickly poppy (Argemone albiflora)
Nice flowers, ugly thorns.
Wild phlox (Phlox drummondii )
Yucca (Yucca torreyi), a.k.a. Spanish dagger.
I'm not able to find the name of those flowers, I hope you can contribute if you know the name of the flowe.
D - Huisache (Acacia farnesiana) a.k.a. Sweet Acacia.
Huisache comes from the language of the Nahuatl Indians, a group of Mexican and Central American tribes. Blooming in early spring, the tree is covered with sweet smelling, ball shaped flowers.
Thanks dulce de fresita!
