PLANTS GROW QUICKLY IN TEXAS
It took a harsh winter to get me moving and redo the planting in front of the dining room window. In late February we removed everything. I did a complete turnaround on the plants replacing the old Indian Hawthorn and Butterfly iris with Red Yucca, Salvia greggii, Mexican feather grass and Whale's tongue agave. See how quickly they are growing. I purchased one gallon red yucca and quart salvias. Feather grasses were transplanted from the granite pathway at the back. I also popped in some ice plant I grew from seed this year and several ruby crystal grasses, also from seed. A few Mexican ruellia and skullcaps round out the rest of the planting. I'm really happy with the outcome. It has a much neater appearance which I hope will stay that way.
