With the arrival of the fall season, it’s a fantastic time of the year to catch our native and ornamental grasses in full bloom. Read ahead to find out what grasses we recommend planting for the Texas Hill Country. Also be sure to take note that each of these grasses listed below is on the recommended Plants for Texas list. Plants for Texas is a program established in 2003, which tests and recommends plants that thrive in Texas (especially because they can handle Texas heat).
