Plant Perennials This Fall
Fall is the best time to plant perennials (plants that die down and return year after year). In Central Texas, with proper planting and care, these outstanding performers can get a head start on spring and future blooming spells... Many bloom in fall, spring and summer.
Sedum is bursting into soft rosey bloom... This succulent plant has an upright habit (different from the ground cover sedums). It takes our heat, tolerated drought, looks wonderful in rock gardens, beds, and mixed containers.
