In the following publication we have gathered the best and the brightest of native and adapted plants that do well in our area. Using these plants in your landscape will help minimize water consumption, minimize pest and disease problems, and some selections will attract birds, butterflies and hummingbirds to your landscape. We have also added a section on invasive and/or poisonous plants that should be avoided.
The 2018 revision is hot off the presses. The new version has some new plants added that we have found to do well in our area and we have eliminated some of the harder to find plants. The 2008 version of In Our Coastal Garden was awarded 1st Place Award for Medium-Sized Publications from the Texas Master Gardeners Association, 2008 Awards Program!
