In 1976, Carroll Abbott and his Green Horizons nursery began publishing the Texas Wildflower Newsletter. In it he advocated for the cause of native plants and urged the creation of the Native Plant Society of Texas. When the Society was established in 1980, Abbott’s newsletter was designated the official publication of the organization.

For business and legal reasons the Society began to publish its own newsletter in the Spring of 1983. However Carroll Abbott continued to publish his own newsletter until his death on July 6, 1984.
