NOTICE: We are aware that searching for a plant by common name is not working. You can still search using all or part of the scientific name. Thanks for your feedback. We are working to fix the issue and appreciate your patience.
Helping You Find the Perfect Texas Native Plant for Your Landscape
Native Plants are important for the health of local ecosystems and the environment. Plus, they create a sense of beauty and are an important food source for some of our favorite critters such as caterpillars, butterflies, moths, and birds.

About this Project
The purpose of this database is to help you fill your landscape with native plants that are readily available in your area. It is not meant to provide an exhaustive list of Texas native plants and we intentionally do not include rare and endangered species.
This is a volunteer-led project. If you see errors, please send an email to the Native Plant Society of Texas so that our volunteers can make the corrections.
NOTE: If viewing on a cell phone it may be helpful to turn horizontal to more easily see the search fields.
