Gardening can be a great way to beautify your home’s exterior and soak up the golden Texas sun. We asked our friends at Garden Design for some of the best year-round plants for North Texas gardens. The best year-round plants are drought tolerant, heat tolerant and use less water than their seasonal counterparts.
Here are some of our favorites:
Shade Trees grow tall and wide, providing shade and shelter from sunlight in the surrounding area with a spreading canopy and crown.
- Live Oak
- Cedar Elm
- Lacebark Elm
- Chinese Pistachio
Ornamental Trees are grown for their aesthetic value. They often have outstanding flowers and fragrance, an interesting shape or unique coloring.
- Desert Willow
- Blue Point Juniper
- Crape Myrtle
- Texas Mountain Laurel
Shrubs are small- to medium-sized woody perennial plants. They’re distinguished from trees by their multiple stems and shorter height
- Soft Leaf Yucca
- Dwarf Nandina
- Indian Hawthorne
- Sunshine Ligustrum
Perennials are plants that live longer than two years. The term “perennial” is often used to differentiate a plant from shorter-lived annuals and biennials as well as to distinguish plants with little or no woody growth from trees (which are also technically perennials).
- Butterfly Bush
- Blue Salvia
Sod is the surface of the ground with grass growing on it. Some sod is better than others in the variable North Texas climate.
