The plants shown in this garden are a selection of Texas Superstar® plants used in a garden setting. Every plant earning the Texas Superstar® designation undergoes several years of extensive field trials by Texas A&M AgriLife Research and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. They must be shown to be super-performing plants under a variety of Texas growing conditions including those found near Tyler, College Station, San Antonio, Austin, and Houston. During the field trials plants receive minimal soil preparation, reasonable levels of water, and no pesticides.
