From:Leander, TX Region: Southwest Topic: Wildflowers Title: List of native perennial Texas flowers Answered by: Nan Hampton and Dean Garrett
Good day, I am searching for a list of native Texas flowers (preferably perennials) for a flower garden.
Living in Leander, you'll have many plant options to choose from. Here's a starter list for Central Texas perennials culled primarily from the Hill Country landscape plan in Andy and Sally Wasowski's Native Texas Plants: Landscaping Region by Region, an excellent book that should be easy for you to find at your local library, bookstore, or garden center. The Kerrville Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas also provides an extensive list of Native Plants for Landscaping in the Texas Hill Country. The list here is limited to plants that prefer full sun, but the resources listed above offer several options for shady beds as well.
