Those are native here in North Carolina, love that smell!
Beautiful shots! I love these spring leaves. These look like newly emerged oak leaves. I'm hesitant to suggest a species for them this early in the year, I would wait for them to mature or look up at the canopy.
This looks like a type of Penstemon or beardtongue. A quick search revealed two dozen species in Texas, so good luck narrowing it down!
It's edible, the dead in the name just means it doesn't sting like a nettle. It isn't even closely related to nettles.
