A different wildflower!

I’ve seen these plants for the last few years…never could figure out what it was.  This year, they’re thick in some areas and we stopped so I could get a photo.   I went online tonight and found a great site with very clear photos.  

These are actually called Standing Cypress!  They grow in the Southeastern states…I certainly wouldn’t consider Texas as Southeastern!

But here they are and they’re quite pretty.  These are standing about 3′ tall.

Here’s a closeup of the blooms.

They look like miniature trumpets.  I bet the butterflies and hummers would love them.  I wonder if you can buy seeds???   I’ll have to look online.   I would love to have some of these in the back 40.
