By popular request, we have created an index of all the plants in our plant database. You can now browse and sort by common name, botanical name, and plant type. For the more advanced users this will be helpful for you to compare the botanical name with the common name of the plants we promote. If you are trying to look up a specific plant, this view may also be helpful to you.
Of course if you would like, you can still browse the SmartScape plant database by using our search function.
Please remember that this is not an exhaustive list of plants that grow in Texas, but is a list of heat and drought tolerant plants that will thrive in our climate. The ultimate goal is to conserve local water supplies and improve storm water runoff quality by reducing the amount of water needed to maintain landscapes while decreasing the amounts of pesticide, fertilizer and herbicides used in landscaping practices - all the while creating beautiful landscapes that will make your neighbors jealous.
