GO NATIVE!


If you're looking to enhance the beauty of your landscape and find a plant that can withstand the Texas heat, consider the stunning array of Texas native plants. Why native? These plants are the very essence of our ecosystem. When you incorporate them into your landscape, they not only attract birds and pollinators, but also add a unique, natural charm.

What is a native plant?

A native plant grows in a given region through non-human interaction or a plant defined by nature itself (quote by Douglas Tallany)
