Wild Flowers of Texas

Unknown Wild Flower

Texaswildflower.jpg I found this little patch of purple flowers growing on a small hill of dirt at the end of the RV park where we are at here in Burelson.  I’m not sure what kind of flower it is, but with the rain on the blooms I just had to stop and grab a capture of them.  I though it very pretty.  The blooms are quite small about 1 to 1 1/12 inch across.

    That looks like Texas bind weed. Not a very pretty name for such pretty flowers LOL

    It is a type of Morning Glory. If it is Texas Bindweed, as Suzie says, then it’s a different color from the kind that grows around here. Here it’s white.

    This is turning into a real learning adventure for you, Bob, as you see plants and birds and beasties that you don’t have way, way up North. It must be fun. A first impression every day.

    Bob I asked Janet and she said it kinda looks like a morning glory that is if the bottom of the flower looks like a bell & she also stated
    most of my flowers die on me anyway.

    For sure its not Fireweed!

    And for sure its not a Forget Me Not.

    Hope you are doing well Bob….enjoying hearing from you.

    Days are getting much shorter, dark around 8pm here in Virginia.

    A old friend of mine here in Corpus Christi, also identified it as a Bind Weed Flower just as Suzie did. Thanks Mike, he also gave me this link:
    A handy dandy reference to the wild flowers of Texas.
