Celebrate Texas Native Plant Week October 14 – 20, 2012
Native plants help conserve water, improve water quality, and provide wildlife habitats. Related activities are being held throughout the week and at many sites around town.
Why Native Plants? Native plants are acclimated to local climate conditions and soils, provide habitat for wildlife, typically require less water and maintenance once established, and do not rely on chemical fertilizers and pesticides to thrive. These homegrown plants also give us a sense of place and help maintain the region's wide variety of flora and fauna. Not only do they provide all of these wonderful benefits, but they are beautiful, too!
