These majestic flowers are difficult to miss. Standing cypress, also known as Texas plume or Red Texas star, can grow up to six feet tall. The red blooms flower from May to July and attract hummingbirds and butterflies. You can see several of these growing along the walking path that skirts Williamson Creek.
