The stately pecan is the state tree of Texas.
It has long been the most popular of Texas
trees, but the sentiment that led to its offi-
cial adoption probably grew out of the re-
quest of Gov. James Stephen Hogg that a
pecan tree be planted at his grave (Acts of
1919, Thirty-Sixth Legislature, regular ses-
sion, page 155; also Acts of 1927, Fortieth
Legislature, page 234).
The state flower of Texas is the bluebon-
net, also called buffalo clover, wolf flower,
"el conejo" (rabbit). Scientifically, it is
Lupinus texensis. Lupinus subcarnosus is
closely related. It was adopted by the State
Legislature at the request of the Society of
Colonial Dames of America In Texas (Acts of
1901, regular session of Twenty-Seventh Leg-
islature, p. 323.)
