Water Wise Plants for Central Texas
Water-Wase Planting

Central Texas can be a brutal place to maintain a landscape, for us and our plants. Temperatures can climb into the triple digits for weeks and months. Rainfall can disappear leaving us to wonder if the rains will ever return. These two factors can lay waste to our landscapes leaving us heartbroken.

Xeric plants are naturally adapted to these conditions and offer a vast pallet of options when designing a drought tolerant landscape. A majority of our xeric offering are Central Texas natives while others are adopted from Central and South America, Africa, Australia, the Mediterranean and the Middle East.

We've dedicated a large area of the Garden Center to xeric & water-wise plant options, however our guests can find these plants throughout the nursery. Be sure to check our plant-signs for the water-wise icon or ask a staff member for recommendations.
