Texas Superstar Garden

texas-superstar-garden-pixTexas Superstars are plants selected by the Texas Superstar® Executive Board with advisory input from the Texas Superstar® Advisory Board composed of Texas A&M University horticulturists, nursery professionals, growers, seed company representatives, county horticulturists, arboretum and botanical garden representatives, horticultural writers and landscape designers.

The plants selected have performed well across the state, are reliable and can be produced in sufficient numbers to meet consumer demands.

The DIG’s Texas Superstar Garden was established in June of 2008 to demonstrate the growth and blooming habits of as many Texas Superstar® designated plants as possible. To create pleasing planting combinations within the garden, select plants after considering their mature height, flower color, foliage texture and availability at local nurseries.

The garden currently includes the following plants:
