I have many of these plants all over my place but mostly in the shade under pine trees. Anyone know what it is?
Thank you,

They are deer resistant and poisonous to wildlife. So good news is you will have pretty flowers for a while.

I'm pretty sure if that's a native plant and not cultivated it's actually Red buckeye. (Aesculus pavia)

It's native to in sandy soils from the Louisiana border to about College Station and maybe in isolated areas to about Bastrop.

The leaves are palmated compound and typically have 5 leaflets.

I looked it up and the leaves of the Red Buckeye seem to be the most similar to this plant. It was not cultivated and is growing wild.
There is one that is about 10 feet tall.

I have one growing at the Wife's house. Hummingbirds love it.

Yep, Red Buckeye. They are all over the lot next to me.

Our place in Camp Wood is covered with these down in the bottom of the canyon. Strangely out of place.

Yes,that is out of place. According to my research, they are not supposed to grow west of Dallas, College Station line.
I guess they did not get the message.

Finding killer whales in Lake Texoma. Mountain gorillas in the Davis Mountains. Strange, no doubt.

Native plants or animals thriving in a micro-climate similar to its preferred habitat, just outside their normal range, is a common occurence.
