Native Texan Flowering plants

 Did you know that Texas is home to 5000-6000 species of native plants. As a state,  it is responsible for the conservation of approximately a quarter (25%) of the North American native flora. There are many  Perennials that are native to Texas, such as; Angel Trumpet, Blackfoot Daisy, and Coneflower, and Calylophus which can be grown within your garden beds to add a beautiful pop of color! 

The  Angel Trumpet is commonly grown as ornamentals in frost-free climates and in greenhouses. The large pendulous flowers have a fused trumpet-shaped corolla and can be white, cream, yellow, orange, red, pink, or greenish in color. The flowers of some species can reach up to 50 cm (20 inches) in length. Most species are fragrant at night and attract moths for pollination, though the red angel’s trumpet lacks scent and is pollinated by hummingbirds.  The Blackfoot daisy is a slowly creeping perennial that blooms almost full time! Blackfoot daisies like alkaline soils. It’s great for rocky areas and to complement other low-water use plants. It loves full sun, but also does well in light shade. The plant can get 6 to 12 inches tall.One of the best flowering perennials for sunny sites, echinacea, commonly called coneflower is native to Texas. They are heat and drought resistant, easy to grow, bloom for months, make great cut flowers, and attract birds and pollinators. Calylophus berlandieri (Sundrops) A long living evergreen, low-growing woody-based perennial (technically a subshrub) that grows to 1 foot tall and spreads to nearly 3 feet wide with dark green narrow fine-textured soft foliage and bright yellow 1 to 2 inch wide flowers in spring and early summer. 

These  Texan native flowering plants can be perfect for any small garden and actually can grow well in other warm spring and summer states.  You can read more about coneflowers in a previous blog :  https://the-dirty-hoe.com/2021/08/31/planting-echinacea/
