Fall is the best time to plant!
Fall is the best time to get back in the garden and more importantly one of our favorite times to plant trees! One of the reasons is that our climate is mild enough that temperatures in the soil are still warm and allow roots to grow. This gives your newly planted tree time to get acclimated to our hot summers. So even if a tree looks dormant during the winter their roots are still growing!

Fall Blooming Perennials
As temperatures cool most perennials start their dormancy. These perennials are some of our favorites that shine as temperatures start to dip. The first one with purple flowers is a native, butterfly host plant and basically the “mum of Texas” – Fall Aster! One of our other favorites is the red flowering Turk’s cap. This amazing plant is also native, a wonderful nectar plant for humminbirds and it can grow in sun or shade. Finally, one of our personal favorite native grasses is Gulf Coast Muhly grass that makes pink plumes in the fall before it’s dormancy period in the winter.
