Spring is here! Know your Native Plants!

Spring quickly turns to summer in these parts – and summer can be brutal. Native and adapted plants can help you get through the heat with a minimum of watering and maintenance and help your neighbors ( anoles, armadillos, bats, bees, butterflies, geckos, etc ) by providing habitat and food for our local and migrating wildlife.

The City of Austin Watershed Protection Department developed this plant guide in collaboration with local nurseries and the Travis County Ag Extension:

By purchasing native and adapted plants and being an educated consumer of these varieties you can help build a market for plants that are harder to propagate – but are more ecologically useful.
