Today has been designated Wildflower Wednesday by Gail at Clay and Limestone, and I was more than ready to hop on the band wagon. Here are the plants that are blooming in my Texas garden on Wildflower Wednesday.
Blackfoot daisy, Melampodium leucanthum.
Four nerve daisy, Tetraneuris scaposa
Cross vine, Bignonia capreolata.
Zexmenia, Wedelia texana.
Chocolate daisy, Berlandiera lyrata.
Skull cap, Scutellaria wrightii
Banket flower, Gaillardia pulchella
Texas sunflower, Helianthus praecox.
Persimmon fruit, Diospyros texana. This tree seeded itself along side the potting shed wall. Not much room there but it will have to stay.
Lantana, Lantana horrida.
All these plants made it through an incredibly hot summer. Some with little water.
