WHAT CAN YOU FIND AT OUR PLANT SALES?
Gregg's Blue Mistflower
This Texas native is a pollinator magnet! It's a perfect "beginner" plant, and a favorite of seasoned butterfly gardeners because of it's low water needs.
This plant is essential to the Monarch butterfly life cycle. It's the only plant the caterpillars will eat. You can help support the Monarch migration by planting native Milkweed.

NEW THIS YEAR
From Roger Sanderson, Director of Horticulture
We have several new introductions of note!
Three fascinating shrubs native to our western states including Silver Buffaloberry, a drought tolerant plant known for its attractive foliage and red berries, Western Serviceberry, widely planted for its showy white flowers, edible fruit, fall color, and a host plant for several butterflies, and Desert Sweet Fernbush, a striking evergreen drought resistant shrub with white flower spikes and cool, fragrant fern-like leaves.
Some native Texas shrubs like the pink-flowering Wooly Bee Brush, Netleaf Forestiera, Gregg’s Saddlebrush (Mortonia), an outstanding pollinator plant, and the interesting South Texas specialty, Yellow Necklace Pod.
Most of our almost 600 varieties of plants are perennials. Some interesting native Texans include Nodding Onion, five different Scullcaps, Blue Verbena, Bluestar, Texas Bluebells, both Goldeneyes, six Rosinweeds (Silphium), several Penstemons, two Fleabanes, four Bee Balms (Monarda), Showy Menodora, and new this year, Heartleaf 4-O’clocks and False Boneset. Some interesting non-natives are Willow-leaf Jasmine (Cestrum), Chinese Foxglove, Variegated Society Garlic, Turtlehead (Chelone), Purple Emperor Sedum, Dwarf Russian Sage, and Transylvanian Salvia!
