Texas bluebonnets (Lupinus texensis ) can be found along Texas highways across the state in early spring. All six species of lupine that grow in Texas have been designated as the official state flower by the State Legislature.
(Bougainvillea glabra )
Bougainvillea (Bougainvillea glabra ) although not native to Texas is widely cultivated in the lower Rio Grande Valley for its rare beauty and rich color.
(Rudbeckia hirta )
Black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta ) is a prairie species found throughout Texas. Its bright yellow flowers with a chocolate center bloom from May through September.
(Berlandiera lyrata )
Chocolate flower (Berlandiera lyrata ), or green eyes, grows in Central and West Texas on rocky limestone soils. When the yellow ray flowers drop, the green sepals underneath look like eyes. Chocolate flower blooms from June to October.
(Cornus florida )
Dogwood (Cornus florida ) blossoms herald spring throughout much of East Texas. The small, graceful trees often grow beneath towering pines (softwoods) and hardwoods. Spring Dogwood Trails are scheduled at Palestine, Woodville, Tyler, and Quitman, Texas.
(Liatris spp. )
Gayfeather (Liatris spp. ) , also called blazing stars, grow in open areas throughout the state. Blooming from late summer to fall, the purple or pink spikes contrast strikingly with prairie grasses.
(Castilleja spp. )
Indian paintbrushes (Castilleja spp. ) vary in color from scarlet to orange, cream, yellow and occasionally purple. The brightly colored tips of the petal-like bracts look like they've been dipped in brilliant paint. Paintbrushes grow throughout the state and bloom in early spring.
Indian blanket (Gaillardia pulchella) , also called firewheel, flowers across much of the state from April to June. When viewed in mass, its brilliant combinations of red, orange and yellow resemble brightly woven tapestries.
Lantana (Lantana horrida) , a three - to five foot shrub, grows in various habitats throughout the state. Under favorable conditions, the bright multi-colored blossoms flower from spring until the first frost.
