Texas Wildflowers Impressions

Unique plant communities such as sundews, pitcher plants, bladderworts, and butterworts exist within the Big Thicket National Preserve near the towns of Woodville, Kountze, Saratoga, and Beaumont. Many other terrestrial and aquatic plant species, mosses, lichens, and fungi thrive in the fertile environment. Common wildflowers are crimson clover, lanceleaf coreopsis, dayflower, spiderwort, sensitive briar, phlox, Carolina spiderlily, and several orchid species. Beautiful American lotus and water lily blossoms are on display at Caddo Lake State Park in summer. Blooming trees in the region include flowering dogwood, white fringetree, cherry laurel, hog plum, and southern magnolia. Woodville and Palestine celebrate dogwood festivals on the last two weekends in March and the first weekend in April. The towns of Avinger, Hughes Springs, and Linden host a signed wildflower route on the last weekend in April, with yellow-fringed orchid, lobelia, coral bean, coreopsis, Indian paintbrush, phlox, crimson clover, and many other species on full display. In Newton County near the Louisiana border, the Wild Azalea Canyons are home to groves of prolific blooming native shrubs that produce clusters of spectacular pink flowers.
