Thanks to the more than 5,000 species of flowering plants native to Texas, spring time turns Texas’s sprawling land into a riot of color. Because of Texas’s size, there’s a variety of species that call Texas home. From the rain-drenched, forested regions of East Texas to the deserts of West Texas, flowers are blooming.
