Here's another picture.
Texas Native Plant Pictures by color ( White )
It is one of the Yuccas, probably Yucca pallida,
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
Field Blackberry Rubus arvensis

Rubus argutus has a more widespread area of habitation and is found in Hardin County.
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.
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.)
You could also post it under shrubs also. I have double posted some plants.
I will work on the entry and put it there too.
Since this is a branch of a sticky thread here's my entry...
Antelope horns or spider milkweed
They call them pale greenish yellow, but they look white to me and my wife.
Thank you Carlo, I love the antelope horns milkweed.
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.
Snow on the Prairie. Native Texas wildflower. Annual. You'll see this all over N. Texas in late summer.
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!
I finally got one blooming...it's not very big, but looks great! Every single flower counts!
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?
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.

Congratulations Sheila, I don't have that one, maybe i can get a cutting from you.
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.
Late-flowering boneset, Eupatorium serotinum.
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!
I take that back. On further research, I see that the leaves do look like elderberry.
Yes, Elderberry a very useful plant, I have lots of those and they are great for butterflies and birds, besides being beautiful.
Thank you, Josephine, for sharing your wonderful knowledge!!
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.
It is False Willow, Baccharis neglecta. Some people call it a weed but we love it it is great for all butterflies and pollinators.
Borrowed pictures, erigonium multiflorum, heartsepal buckwheat
Very nice Kitt, I don't get to see much of that but it sure is pretty.
Can anyone ID this one? I thought it was Pasture heliotrope but, after looking through the photos, I'm doubting that.
