Gardening with plants native to Texas offers many advantages. Native plants tolerate our summer heat better than most, require less water, need less mowing, provide habitat for birds, butterflies and other wildlife, protect the soil and save money on fertilizer and pesticides.
Also, as Lady Bird Johnson said, native plants "give us a sense of where we are in this great land of ours."
