Tough Texas Perennials

Posted on May, 10

Do you have an all-day sun exposure area in your yard that you want to make beautiful? Many gardeners struggle with this in North Texas, because of our extreme summers, but we have many Texas hardy perennials that are a great way to add color, texture, and interest to your landscape. Plus, many of them attract pollinators (which is a bonus), and once established, numerous of them are drought tolerant S well.
One of my personal favorites is salvia, and there are so many different varieties. You could plant an entire area with various salvia selections, and it would look like you had a dozen different types of plants. Other great perennials are Texas Primrose, Gaillardia, Coneflower, Daylily, Coreopsis, Yarrow, Rock Rose, Russian Sage, Pincushion, and lots more sensational options. Once your selection has been made and you’re ready to plant, make sure to mix in Covington’s soil builder so that your newly planted perennials will thrive. Happy planting, and let’s grow together!
