Does the Austin area have any flowers that grow/bloom in October? I'm getting married in Austin in October and want the entire event to be as earth-friendly as possible..hence native flowers.
You can find a list of plants blooming in Central Texas by going to our Recommended Species page and selecting the Central Texas area from the map. This will bring up a list of commercially available native plants that are suitable for landscapes in Central Texas. You can narrow that list to find the ones blooming in October by selecting the Narrow Your Search option and choosing "October". You need to realize that although the flowers have been known to bloom during the month of October, climatic conditions sometimes alter the expected bloom periods and plants may not always bloom when they have before.
Here are a few from that list that should be nice for a wedding:
