NATIVE PLANTS FOR TEXAS.
Gailon Hardin did a wonderful presentation on the importance of using natives in the landscape.
Some are old favorites & some were new to me. I am in total agreement that plants need to be beneficial to other critters.
That biodiversity is what is critical in maintaining a healthy environment as well as to conserve our most precious resource, water!
As always, I love that all of these plants serve as nectar & host plants for a variety of butterflies not to mention a great food source for birds.
American Beauty Berry
Blue Mist Flower
Mealy Blue Sage
