The Leopard Plant Makes A Great Choice for North Texas Landscapes

We get many questions from customers on what our favorite plants to use in North Texas are. So many Ken has recorded a “Best Plants Series.”

Today we wanted to show you one of our favorite plants to use, the Leopard Plant. The plant in this video is green, but you’ll often find variations with leopard-like spots. The Leopard Plant has an attractive, alien-like leaf. For the most part, Leopard Plant is an evergreen plant. If we have long-term below-freezing weather (like we did in February 2021), they can suffer freeze burn, but they will bounce back. If you want a visually striking plant that does well in the shade, you should consider the Leopard Plant.

Best Plants Series – Canna Lilly

We get many questions from customers on what our favorite plants to use in North Texas are. So many Ken has recorded a “Best Plants Series.”

Today we wanted to show you one of our favorite plants to use, the Canna Lily. If a customer is looking for a tropical look in their landscape, our go-to plant is the Canna Lily. They come in different colors (both the blooms and leaves.) One of the downsides of the Canna Lily is you can get leaf cutters which can make the leaves look ugly. That is quite common, and there’s not a lot you can do about it. They are a perennial that will go dormant in the winter and need to be cut back. They will also spread if you don’t contain them. Even with those couple of downsides, if you want a colorful tropical plant, especially in a landscape around a pool, it’s hard to beat the Canna Lily.

Best Plants Series Featuring Stella de Oro Daylily

Today we wanted to put the spotlight on one of our favorite plants to use, the Stella de Oro Daylily.

We love using it in our landscape projects because it does fine in full sun and is a reliable bloomer. It is flameproof, which makes it suitable for North Texas during our blistering summer months.

We also like to use these in front of other plants to make a nice lower layer (they will also go dormant in our winter months.)
