Southern Swamp Lily, American Crinum (Crinum americanum), Amaryllidaceae Family, Texas native, perennial, blooms late spring through summer

Even though it looks like it might be a lily, it is not a true lily because the flower parts are attached above the ovary rather than below, as in a true lily. It spreads by underground stolons and self-seeds. It is found along streambanks and in marshes. It grows in full sun to shade, but blooms better in full sun. It makes a great bog plant.

Woolly-White, Woolly White, Old Plainsman, Wild Cauiliflower (Hymenopappus scabiosaeus), Asteraceae Family, Texas native, biennial, blooms in early spring through mid-summer

It is considered an invasive weed by some. It is often found in dry, sandy soils, on rocky hillsides, prairies, roadsides and close to limestone outcrops. The flowerhead is composed of white to creamy white disk flowers and small white petal-like bracts and is about 1/2 inch in diameter. Many flowerheads form a cluster. There are many clusters on each plant. The leaves tend to form a basal rosette and some leaves alternate along the stem which is ribbed. The blooms attract butterflies and bees.

False Gromwell, Softhair Marbleseed, Bexar Marbleseed, Smooth Onosmodium (Onosmodium molle ssp. bejariense), Texas native, perennial


Some references to this plant state that it is endemic to Texas being found mostly in the Central and Edwards Plateau regions; however, other references state that it is endemic to Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas. It is usually found on prairies in a sunny site. But, it inhabits woods also. It prefers rocky, sandy soil. Known also as Bexar marbleseed after being found in a riparian woodland along Acequia de It is Espada in Bexar County, Texas (of which San Antonio, Texas is located):hence its genus name "bejariense":Bexar = Bajer in Spanish).

For more information, see its entry in the PlantFiles:

When I found this plant growing outside of a fence along a roadside in Northwest Bexar county, I was enchanted by it. It took me a long time to find its ID.

Oxeye daisy is not native to the US. ;-) http://plants.usda.gov/cgi_bin/topics.cgi?earl=plant_profile.cgi&symbol=LEVU

Some states list it as a noxious weed.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

You told me that before John, and I thought we got that settled, blame it on
Campbell and Lynn Loughmiller, in Texas Wildflwers, I like their version.

Gordonville, TX(Zone 7b)

We only reference things we like? The USDA is an inferior reference some times but, not all the time?

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

I guess we make choices John, I did not say any one is superior or inferior, I just said I like their version and I chose to go with it.

Gordonville, TX(Zone 7b)

The inference was that the National Plants Database is inferior to Cambell and Lynn Loughmiller's book, was it not?

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

No, I simply posted someting, that is all.
