Texas bluebonnet (Lupinus texensis, Fabaceae), endemic to Texas and in its two varieties here. It is Texas' state flower and is planted by the Highways Department in its roadside as part of the beautification and erosion-control programs.
Many species of bluebonnet have alkaloids (e.g., lupinine) and can cause poisoning in humans or livestock.
It was adopted as the state flower of Texas in 1901 and in 1971 an additional resolution included "any other varieties of bluebonnet" as the state flower, and, because there are six Lupinus species in Texas, there are six state flowers. Denton, Texas.
