It is finally spring, and you are ready to plant some native plants, but where do you find them?
The benefits of native plants go far beyond just saving water. They attract pollinators like beautiful butterflies and bees, they support native wildlife, they clean our air and our water, and of course, they look great with very little care! Even with all these amazing benefits, sometimes they can be hard to find in larger nurseries.
Larger nurseries who provide to big box stores often grow plant types from all over the world that are meant to be marketed to the entire US, ignoring the vast diversity in soil and climate seen across our great nation. This mass appeal marketing strategy does not generally provide a large selection of native Texas plants. So where should we look for Texas native plants here in the DFW area?
A huge selection of Texas native plants can be found all around Tarrant and surrounding counties at smaller, locally owned nurseries and plant sales put on by a variety of local groups and organizations. Check out the list below to find the plant sales or nurseries closest to you. Happy planting!
