This search engine is designed to aid with native plant selection for garden planning. Once you click on the scientific name you are taken to Dave's Garden Plant Files for a complete description and pictures. While there are thousands of plants in Dave's Plant Files, this search engine narrows your search to Native Texas Plants, including naturalized and cultivars.
Searching Tips: When searching by name it is often easier to search using just part of the name. For example, if you enter the word cone you are able to find the Coneflower even if it were in the database as Cone Flower or Coneflower. Also searching with part of the scientific name such as lind, shows all of the lindheimerii plants. Note: You must enter at least three letters for a name search.
