RE: plants for gulf coast

Have you gone to any of the local garden centers? Are you looking for flowers, shrubs, fruit trees, or do you know? Landscaping plants?

There are so many great plants that will do very well there, it would help if you could narrow it down a little. Having that much clear in your mind will help make decisions.

RE: plants for gulf coast

In Corpus Turners Nursery is the best. nursery.. I am about 30 miles from Corpus. I grow tropical hibiscus, plumeria, roses, daturas, brugmansia( mornintrog sun), barleria reopens, morning glory bush, Mexican flame vine, , oleanders, bird of paradise, daylilies, varigated gingers, bleeding hearts, criniums, amaryllis, lillies, iochroma, blood bananas, cannas, desert roses. These all do very well for me. I do add turface to the soil, to help retain moisture. I get most of my plants from Lowes, when they mark them down. Barbra
