Mountain Cedar
Mountain cedar (or Ashe juniper) is one of the most potent allergens found in Texas. Pollen from mountain cedar is responsible for the mid-winter phenomenon known as cedar fever in central Texas. Pollen is released during December and January and can be carried by prevailing winds all over Texas and beyond. Symptoms include runny nose, a sore throat, and incessant sneezing.
