insulation of subfloor on pier & beam home

I live in south Texas near the coast and am considering insulating the outer side of our subfloor on our older pier & beam home, using fiberglass batting. The sales guy says the rolls have paper "wings" extending outward from the fiberglass insulation roll that allows one to secure it by stapling the wing to the beams. Is this a good idea for our area?

Yes, in your area the U.S. Dept. of Energy state that the vapor barrier should be between the outside and the insulation. Therefore stapling it up to your beams is correct and the wings or folds are where they are stapled.
