From:Temple, TX Region: Southwest Topic: Plant Identification Title: Identification of landscape plants at malls in Waco and Temple Answered by: Nan Hampton
Dear Mr. Smarty,
I am trying to identify a plant used in landscaping for several shopping centers within the Waco-Temple areas. It looks to be large mounding grass, but flowers June-July with shafts of elegant lilly or orchid like flowers in either white or orange color. It seems heat resistant and hardy, which makes me wonder if it is native to Texas.
Thanks for your help.
