Best Plants for West Central Texas & the Rolling Plains
The key to a successful garden or landscape design is to select hardy, native or adapted plants. The USDA Plant Hardiness Map is a useful tool to help you select plants that are best suited for your landscape. Abilene and our surrounding communities are located in Zone 7b; however, when you select plants at the local nursery, most plant labeling will identify the hardiness as Zone 7. You ensure greater success and survivability of your plants when you select plants that are adapted to Zone 7.
