Categories: Belclaire Communities, General Posts | Posted: August 7, 2020 | Comments Off on Great year-round plants for your Belclaire garden in Texas

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
  • Lantana
  • Esperanza
  • 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.

  • Bermuda
  • Augustine
  • Zoysia
