Identified as: Annual Phlox

What a fantastic find. The soil they prefer is deep sandy soils and the book says it does not do well with cultivation since it really prefers the deep sandy soil. The identification I used for this is page 280-281 of my older version of "Wildflowers of Texas" by Geyata Ajilvsgi ISBN: 0-940672-15-4
