Native Plant Database
Find the Perfect Texas Native Plant for Your Landscape
Native plants are important for the health of local ecosystems. Plus, they create a sense of beauty in our landscapes and are an important food source for our favorite wildlife such as butterflies and birds.
The purpose of this database is to help you fill your landscape with native plants that are best adapted to your region and readily available in your area. It is not meant to provide an exhaustive list of Texas native plants.
Use the filters below to search for plants that are just the right for your landscape. Click on the name of each plant to view more detailed information.
This is a volunteer-led project. If you see errors, please send us an email so our volunteers can make the corrections.
