Why Do We Stock Native Plants for Our Ennis, Texas Gardeners?
Easy! Because we know that native plants and those that are bred to withstand our North Texas climate are going to perform better. That means our customers can grow more beautiful gardens, create spectacular landscapes, and plant trees for future generations without worry. Plus, we're more than a little bit selfish and we want to see those gorgeous plantings for years to come too.
What Kinds of Plants Are Native to Ennis, Texas?
There are actually several species of native plants that are found in the Ennis area. At our plant nursery, we grow many of them! What's really interesting about these native species is how varied they are and how well they seem to capture the feel of Texas. Because they're native species, they'll also attract butterflies, bees, and other local beneficial insects to your garden.
Blackland Prairie Species
Ellis County takes up about 939 square miles of the Blackland Prairie and the majority of the plants that are native to the area spring from this area. While there are few trees on the open prairie, there are plenty of interesting, and beautiful native plants and shrubs.
- Various Shrub species
- Bunch & Short Grasses including: Indian, buffalo, grama, bluestems, and three-awn.
All of these plants and shrubs are able to cope with hot, dry conditions, wind, and whatever else Mother Nature throws at them. They're perfect for a homeowner who doesn't want to spend a lot of time tending to delicate plants that require excessive amounts of water and shade. In fact, these plants can be planted and forgotten and they'll carry on for generations to come.
Low Maintenance Varieties
Gardening doesn't have to be all hard work. In fact, it should be a fun, relaxing, and even entertaining way to spend your time. If you'd rather enjoy looking at your garden than working in it, native plant species are the way to go. Think about it, they grow naturally here, so they don't need any help from you beyond providing a good home.
