Watershed Plant Guide

Asclepias curassavica

This is an awesome publication from the City of Austin and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service on what native and adapted plants do well in our central Texas gardens. Extensive info is listed with the ability to choose what area you’re in, what sun/shade your garden has, what type of plants you’re looking for, etc etc etc. Great pics and individual plant info too. Download or bookmark this thing so you’ll have it handy!

The Wildflowers Are Coming!

This article from the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center talks about how our native Texas wildflowers are still trying to put on a brave appearance even after that horrid winter we just had.

I’ve seen a few different ones in my meadow starting to bloom. I’ll be writing a post on them soon.
