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.
Use the filters below to search for plants that are just the right fit for your landscape. Click on the name of each plant to view distribution maps and more detailed information.
The purpose of this database is to help you fill your landscape with native plants that are best adapted to your region and 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.
