Annotated Trees, Shrubs, and Vines of the Texas Hill Country

Jan Wrede's Trees, Shrubs, and Vines of the Texas Hill Country is a great book for identifying common wild Texas plants. I've gone through it and identified which plants have edible or medicinal uses as well as which are toxic. These designations are listed below. Eventually the plants in this list will be linked to pages on my website for full details on how to eat them.
