How many names of wildflowers do you know? Considering that there are 5000 flowering plants in Texas at least a thousand of which can be called 'wild flowers' it's safe to say, not many. The beginners guide will, I hope, help to put names to some of the more common ones, give impetus to search for the uncommon ones and provide information about some of the interesting plants around us. You will find names, locations and many little known facts that will entertain and enlighten.
