Texas has over 5,000 species of native plants.
Because of its size and geography, it is one of the most biologically diverse states, with forests, deserts, mountains, hills, prairies and coastal plains.
The Native Plant Society of Texas wants to protect our state’s native plant heritage and preserve it for future generations. We are a non-profit organization, run by volunteers, sponsoring educational programs, workshops, demonstration gardens and many other types of projects.
Why native plants?
|Native plants are drought-tolerant, naturally conserving our precious water resources|
|Native plants provide habitat and food for birds, butterflies, bees and other wildlife|
|Native plants don't need special pampering or fertilizing|
|Natives are natural to their eco-system|
|Natives help us maintain biological diversity|
