Have
Image Gardenia (Gardenia jasminoides)
Have
Image Firebush (Hamelia patens)
Have
This guy survived the freeze and was a little sluggish in the spring. I didn't really give it too much special attention post-spring, but it has really shined as the heat has increased. One of the few blooming right now and has attracted some butterfly and hummingbird attention.
Sunflower (Helianthus annuus 'Cinnamon Sun')
Have
Somewhat surprisingly this did not do well for me. At first, I underestimated the deer interest, although the plant rapidly grew back new flowers. While they like full sun, apparently the Texas heat was a little too much for these guys...after blooming they didn't really seed out as much as expected and withered pretty quickly. Not sure this one I can plant reliably...if I do, I'll have to give either morning or afternoon sun only.
Image Red Yucca (Hesperaloe parviflora)
Have
Image Yellow Yucca (Hesperaloe parviflora 'Yellow')
Have
Image Possumhaw Holly (Ilex decidua)
Have
December 24, 2017: Seeds sown (Winter sowed in plastic jug. Morning/early pm sun in front of north face of retaining wall by pool)
Image Shrimp Plant (Justicia brandegeeana)
Have
I planted this plant this spring in a bed that receives mostly shade. It has done great, blooming multiple times. I'm told the pollinators like it but I haven't yet seen any hummingbird or bee activity by it. I did take a cutting about a month ago, checked on it today and it has nice roots and looks great - so I am hoping to have a couple more next year!
Image Shrimp Plant (Justicia brandegeeana 'Fruit Cocktail')
Have
Hasn't bloomed for me yet and does seem to show water weariness a little more than a "regular" shrimp plant. Maybe it needs a little more sun to bloom? In dappled shade...
Mexican Honeysuckle Mexican Honeysuckle (Justicia spicigera)
Have
Image Lettuce (Lactuca sativa 'Buttercrunch')
Have
December 22, 2017: Seeds sown (Sowed 12 cells (indoors)...overseeded)
December 24, 2017: Seeds sown (Winter sown - outdoors in plastic jug)
December 25, 2017: Seeds germinated (Tremendous germination...lots of seedlings per cell)
January 5, 2018: Seeds germinated (outdoors)
Image Loose-leaf Lettuce (Lactuca sativa 'Salad Bowl')
Have
December 10, 2017: Seeds sown (Planted 12 cells (indoors))
December 15, 2017: Seeds germinated
December 19, 2017: Maintenance performed (Some seedlings looking leggy so I moved closer to the light)
January 4, 2018: Potted up (15 plants into 14 cups)
Planted in 1953. Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica)
Have
Image Spanish Lavender (Lavandula stoechas)
Have
Image Texas Sage (Leucophyllum frutescens)
Have
As of yet, these haven't bloomed much or grown for me. One gets am sun, the other gets pm sun. Not much supplemental watering. I thought this was a low maintenance plant but maybe I don't quite have it in the right place.
Image Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis)
Have
Hi germination rate from seed but they didn't transfer well. One juvenile plant bought has been a little water weary in heat/dry. In mostly shade. Had a bloom but I think the deer ate it.
