FLORA OF SANDERSON & TERRELL COUNTY

Sanderson, Terrell County, Texas, is officially known as the "Cactus Capitol of Texas." We wish to show-case many of the varieties and species of cacti and other native plants that are found in our county.

Many of these plants can now be seen in various gardens on Main Street and in private gardens in Sanderson. Of course, you can always enjoy seeing these cacti and plants growing along the sides of the highway.

All of the plants shown are found in Terrell County.
