Hello, I am a botany student in California. I need to collect a branch or two of Abronia ameliae, a Sand Verbena that grows only in Texas. I must collect this plant when it is both in flower and fruit (flower and fruit characters are needed for correct identification). Can you tell me when I should travel to Texas to find this plant in bloom and fruiting in wild? Would you be able to tell me where I should go looking for it? Also, can you tell me which airport is closest to the areas where Abronia ameliae grows? Many thanks.
