Creating a new garden using native plants or adding natives to a local garden can be simple and rewarding. The Nine Natives (and a few alternates) were selected to work together to give a beautiful show in the garden throughout the year. Some species were selected for their extended or repeat blooms and others for their interesting foliage and contrasting colors and textures. All were chosen for the benefit to butterflies, hummingbirds, birds, beneficial insects and other wildlife in the garden.
Clark Condon worked with the Native Prairies Association of Texas, Coastal Prairie Partnership and the Katy Prairie Conservancy to develop the Nine Natives program for our region. The booklet introduces a simple palette of native plants in the Houston area that are available to everyone. Utilizing native plants supports and benefits pollinators and local wildlife in our area;
