Plants & Shrubs

Texas Superstars. These plants are hardy, tolerating the hot dry summers characteristic of most parts of the state. They are disease and insect tolerant, providing beauty with minimal care and minimal reliance on chemical pest control.

Flowers for all Seasons. Annual flowers can provide landscaped areas with more seasonal variety and colorful accents than most other plants. The key to success with annuals is to plant only the area that can be adequately cared for. Remember, color can have more impact on the landscape than any other design element. However, nothing has a more negative impact than a poorly maintained color area.
