Flora of Texas: Fort Worth Prairie
A guide to over 300 wildflowers, vines, and grasses of the Fort Worth Prairie. Partner: Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT).
The Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) and High Country Apps have partnered to produce the new
FLORA OF TEXAS: FORT WORTH PRAIRIE plant identification app for mobile devices. The app provides images,
species descriptions, range maps, bloom period, and technical descriptions for over 300 common wildflowers,
vines, and grasses found in the Fort Worth Prairie region and parts of the West Cross Timbers. Most of the
species included were taken from several field locations in which BRIT staff has worked. Most plants presented
are relatively common within their habitat, and this list includes native, introduced, and invasive species.
We have also included some introduced species that are commonly seen in landscapes. The app does not need an
Internet connection to run, so you can use it no matter how remote your wanderings take you.
