St. Augustine Lawn Update for North Texas

The fallout from the North Texas February winter storm is still affecting many in North Texas.

It is especially true for those who have St. Augustine lawns. It is no big surprise that some St. Augustine lawns are showing signs of freeze damage. After all, St. Augustine is a tropical plant and does not do well when temperatures bottom out to zero!

Be sure and watch our St. Augustine video update below on what we are are seeing in the field.

Loropetalum (a.k.a. Purple Fringe Flower) Update for North Texas

In early April, we received so many calls from people worried about their fringe flowers (also known as Loropetalum.) These popular plants took a real hit from the February freeze. I did a video specifically on Loropetalum (watch it here https://youtu.be/CpzRgOBtxFg​).

I’m happy to share some good news from all that freezing weather we had in February in this video update. Not so fast on Lororpetalum (also known as Chinese Fringe Flower), we see signs of life for some of them in North Texas.

Be sure and watch the video to learn tips on what you can do to help your Loropetalum come back.

Our Favorite Plants For Landscape Projects

The worried calls we received about freeze damage from the February storm have turned to questions about replacement plant recommendations.

In these videos, Ken recommend what we feel are some of the best plants that we use for our landscape projects.

Keep in mind that there is currently a nationwide shortage of plants. Plants are literally being rationed! The joke around our shop is that plants are harder to find this spring than toilet paper was a year ago!

All kidding aside, the shortage is the result of the growers losing a lot of plants because of the February freeze and increased demand for replacement plants for many North Texans. The demand has quadrupled!

If you are looking for plants recommendations for your lawn or landscape be sure and watch all the videos in this series.
