Hi Katie! A formal welcome to ATP! Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!
I believe it may be Conoclinium coelestinum or mistflower
See:

For native Texas wildflowers this is a good resource for you

Hello Katie and Welcome!

Ann, You are really fast! Smiling

I had no idea what it was but was sure it looked edible and had some herbal use. It has the Look... Hilarious!

I tip my hat to you.

I learned recently that you can make an insect repellent salve from this plant.

*Blush* I just happened to recognize it. My cousin lives in San Antonio & has this in her garden & we were talking about it a couple years ago. She only knew the name as Mistflower so I had tracked it down. Maybe that's why it stuck in my head. Hilarious! I wish I had some growing wild here!
