Non native but still pretty...

Requirements for a certified Texas Wildscape call for 50 percent or more native plants. We adhere to that as much as we can, and I'd say we have at least 75 percent or more. Some plants were already established in the yard when I arrived on the scene in 2002. I planted a few myself, such as these pretty chrysanthemums. They're special because my dear friend, Mary Malone, gave them to me soon after we moved in. I planted them in the front yard, and they've been blooming each fall ever since!
