Q: I would love to plant more native and adapted plants. Is there a list for our area?
A: Several websites offer lists of North Texas native and adapted plants for your landscape. For example, Texas Smartscape provides a database of native and adapted plants. Select North Central Texas as your region and then you can specify the types of plant you are looking for e.g., ground cover, ornamental grass, shrub or you can search by the type of growing conditions in your landscape.
The Trinity Forks Chapter of the Texas Native Plant Society of Texas also offers comprehensive lists of Texas natives that are great choices for Denton County’s eco-region. You may limit your search to types of plant or intended placement e.g., butterfly garden, water-wise garden, shade garden.
If you have selected potential plants but want detailed information about them, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center has an extensive database that can be searched by the plant’s scientific or common name.
