Texas bluebonnet

Lupinus texensis

Ringing in spring in the Lone Star State and beyond, this bold purple-blue annual is known for its tenacity. It self-seeds, coming back year after year and thriving in drought-prone areas. In fact it languishes in moist soil. Plant it in fast-draining loam or gravelly soil. It is a great choice for a hillside.

Texas bluebonnet is native to areas of North America.

how to grow Texas bluebonnet


plant Texas bluebonnet with
Yucca

A yucca in bloom is a showstopper. It produces imposing spires of large, bird-attracting white flowers in summer and fall. The evergreen rosettes of stiff, sharply pointed leaves, often variegated with cream or white, are striking. Use them to punctuate the end of a walkway, mass them as a barrier, or plant them as accents throughout the border. Be careful not to site them away from paths or other places people could be scratched by their sharp leaves. Free-draining soil and sun is all yuccas require.This plant is also sometimes called Hesperoyucca.

Indian paintbrush

A North American prairie native, Indian paintbrush will color a meadow or perennial garden with red-orange clusters of showy bracts in late spring or early summer. This unusual native relies on other plants for part of its nutrients. Its roots will grow until they come in contact with another plant's roots. It will then tap into the host plant¿s roots to obtain valuable nutrients. The host plant is commonly a grass plant and is not usually harmed by the relationship. Indian paintbrush is known to be slightly unpredictable -- some years the foliage will be brilliantly colored and other years it will be muted. This unpredictability is part of the plant¿s charm -- you never know what the year will bring! Indian paintbrush grows best in full sun and well-drained soil.
