Texas is a state filled with many different type of plants.

We know many, with some being our absolute favorites. If you don't love the Lone Star State Bluebonnets, you may be in the minority on that one. But's there plenty of other flora in Texas to look at of course.

Listed here are just a select few, thanks to info from the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center At University of Texas at Austin. We've all seen a Prickly Pear Cactus, or some Texas Purple Sage in the state right?

One of the those plants was recently found by accident in Texas, and now one person is warning of the danger of even touching this plant.
