I do have it here on my property in Polk Co, just outside of Livingston Tx. It took me a while to identify. Was told it was endangered. Have also seen it near a creek bed near where I live. Am collecting seed this week. When sun hits it, you can't help but notice it. I am very fortunate to live not to far from the Big Thicket. I have also found False Aloe close by. So exciting. Qbe
