Josephine and Hazel~
I dug this up from our property in Village Mills, TX... Big Thicket

It grows all over the open fields there. I just can't tell which Blackberry it is, but I know that much.

There were no pics in the Dave's database yet. Would it be Sawtooth, or Field?

Sawtooth Blackberry Rubus argutus
or
Field Blackberry Rubus arvensis

Rubus argutus has a more widespread area of habitation and is found in Hardin County.
http://txflora.org/Species.aspx?Species=Rubus%20argutus

Rubus arvensis is reported as being growing in Walker County with no other counties being noted. It could be growing elsewhere. It is mentioned as a Big Thicket plant. I couldn't find enough information about it on the web (which I find a bit strange) to be able to fill in any of the details on its PlantFile entry..

Without being able to compare the 2, I am unable to assist with the ID. I am sorr that I couldn't be of more help.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Deb I couldn't help either, Sorry.

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Thank you for looking into it Hazel & Josephine!

I took home a couple vines and planted it almost 2 years ago. It is finally starting to grow pretty well. The first blooms came a few weeks ago, and in the picture you can see where they've fallen off. Not sure if they got proper pollination to become berries yet, but we shall see.


I am satisfied with it being Sawtooth Blackberry for now. Since it is classified as a Sub-shrub, I wonder... Oo Where does it go in the Native Plant Files?..oO (I only knew it had white flowers.)

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

I would say under white is fine.

San Antonio, TX(Zone 8b)

You could also post it under shrubs also. I have double posted some plants.

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Thanks Hazel!
I will work on the entry and put it there too.
:-)

San Antonio, TX(Zone 8b)

You're welcome. :o)

Denton, TX(Zone 8a)

Since this is a branch of a sticky thread here's my entry...

Asclepias asperula
Antelope horns or spider milkweed

http://wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=ASAS

They call them pale greenish yellow, but they look white to me and my wife.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Thank you Carlo, I love the antelope horns milkweed.

San Antonio, TX(Zone 8b)

Thanks for the photo. I have only seen antelope horns milkweed plants once and the plants were destroyed by a bulldozer before I could take a photo and/or save them from destruction. The blooms are wonderful.

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 7b)

Snow on the Prairie. Native Texas wildflower. Annual. You'll see this all over N. Texas in late summer.

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 7b)

Snow on the Prairie.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Thank you, those are very pretty.

San Antonio, TX(Zone 8b)

glamourpaw, thanks for the photos. I haven't seen any in my area this year. I think it is due to the prolonged drought. We finally had 2 good rains ... the best in 2 years! Yippee!

NE Medina Co., TX(Zone 8a)

I finally got one blooming...it's not very big, but looks great! Every single flower counts!

Emory, TX(Zone 8a)

Linda,

Did you mean you have one and it is blooming? I have been wondering about trying to collect some seeds. Is that what you did?

Carol

NE Medina Co., TX(Zone 8a)

I'm sorry, I thought it was Snow-on-the-Mountain, which I have. Didn't look very closely at that post...so thought it was the same one. This is the one I have. I should pay more attention.

I got an ID on this plant today and looked it up, to find it is a native! My Late-flowering Boneset (Eupatorium serotinum) is over 6 foot and full of blooms.

Says it is great for butterflies, sure hope so.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Congratulations Sheila, I don't have that one, maybe i can get a cutting from you.

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

You bet, not sure how I came to have it other than the birds or from a plant at trade time. I can save seeds for you also when they dry. I will try some cuttings now, but bring you more to RU.

Beaumont, TX(Zone 9a)

Late-flowering boneset, Eupatorium serotinum.

Fulshear, TX(Zone 9b)

I thought these were elderberry but the leaves are different. Any ideas? I'm 30 miles west of Houston and lots of these are growing along the road sides.
Sorry, the photo was taken while driving!

Fulshear, TX(Zone 9b)

I take that back. On further research, I see that the leaves do look like elderberry.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Yes, Elderberry a very useful plant, I have lots of those and they are great for butterflies and birds, besides being beautiful.

Fulshear, TX(Zone 9b)

Thank you, Josephine, for sharing your wonderful knowledge!!

I have this on my property and can't figure out what it is. The pollinators & Love bugs swarm it. Josephine- It's not either of those you posted. I'll add my photos, hoping they will help.

Fulshear, TX(Zone 9b)

Oops, I messed up on that quote above, sorry. Here is my whateverthisis. It's growing along the roadsides around here, too, so I'm guessing that many call it a weed.

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

It is False Willow, Baccharis neglecta. Some people call it a weed but we love it it is great for all butterflies and pollinators.

Magnolia, TX(Zone 9a)

Borrowed pictures, erigonium multiflorum, heartsepal buckwheat

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Very nice Kitt, I don't get to see much of that but it sure is pretty.

Fulshear, TX(Zone 9b)

That's it, Josephine. Thank you!

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

You are welcome.

Fulshear, TX(Zone 9b)

Can anyone ID this one? I thought it was Pasture heliotrope but, after looking through the photos, I'm doubting that.

Fort Worth, TX

I can't help with that one, might try the Plant ID forum
