Do I have to use only native plants?

Though there’s a great variety of native plant choices, you’re not limited to only native plants if you want a sustainable, water-wise landscape.

Well-adapted plants are not native but have adapted to the area. They do well in the local soil type (clay, sand, silt, loam) and pH level (alkaline or acidic). They do well with the high and low temperatures of our region. Often, they come from the same climate and soil type but from the other side of the world.

Well-adapted plants thrive like natives and are not invasive, so they can have a place in a smart North Texas landscape.
