Perennial flowers, plants that return year-after-year, are both economical and low-maintenance. In selecting perennials for Central Texas, it is always best to choose plants that will tolerate our summer heat, native soils, and infrequent rains.
Join life-long plant enthusiast and Travis County Master Gardener Reeve Hobbie as he shares dozens of his favorite tried and true perennials that thrive here with minimal care in our climate and soils.
Reeve’s collection of beautiful slides and plant descriptions will also highlight how perennials add color and texture to your landscape. He especially likes bearded iris and daylilies, but you'll have to ask him why he doesn't grow them.
You are bound to go home with some new plant ideas to try out.
