(Pink Muhly Grass, Texas Muhly Grass)

Pink muhly grass is a clumping, warm season perennial native to the eastern United States, Mexico, and the West Indies. This selection, ‘Regal Mist,’ has long, narrow blades and tall, stiff flower stems that produce a cloud of deep, rosy-pink bloom in the late summer.

Muhly grass needs very little care, and tolerates a wide range of conditions, from wet to dry sites, acidic to alkaline soil, salt spray, and poor soil conditions. It is drought tolerant, but limiting water can also limit the mature...

(Blue Bird Forget-Me-Not, Woodland Forget-Me-Not)

Often short-lived, woodland forget-me-not is an herbaceous perennial of European origin. In spring plants form small clumps of small hairy gray-green leaves from which rise branched flower stems with curled flower spikes (helicoid cymes) dotted with tiny, tubular five-petaled flowers with white and yellow centers. These fairyland flowers have an airy, ephemeral appearance and can bloom from spring to summer.

There are many cultivars, differing in size and flower color, including white, pink,...

(Parrot's Feather, Watermilfoil)

A soft-textured, submersed aquatic plant, parrot's feather has thin, feathery green leaves that line the bouyant stems. An evergreen tender perennial from New Zealand's North Island and eastern Australia, it is popular as planted or floating oxygen-providing greenery in aquariums and water gardens.

If water levels drop and the plants are exposed to air, this species survives as a short herb until seasonal rains submerge it again. Both its seeds and bits of stem and foliage can develop into new...

(American Lotus, Yanquapin, Yellow Lotus)

American lotus is a hardy aquatic plant that originates from the eastern and central United States. It is a parent plant for many of the hundreds of lotus hybrids and cultivars extant today.

The leaves are large, round, blue-green, waxy and stand above the surface of the water. In summer, large, long-stemmed, lightly fragrant, buttery yellow flowers fade to ivory with age. The fruits are large, woody, funnel-shaped, flat-topped pods with perforated holey tops containing round hard seeds....

(Broad Swordfern)

Broad sword fern is a ground-dwelling or terrestrial fern, native to Florida, Mexico, the West Indies, Central and South America. It spreads slowly by rhizomes (below ground stems) and stolons (above ground lateral stems). The leaf stems or petioles are covered with sparse to moderate, one-color, reddish to light brown hair-like scales. The fronds are evergreen, long, once-pinnate or feather like, the leaflets have margins which are finely double-toothed and are densely pubescent below. The fronds...

(Broad Swordfern)

Fish tail fern is a ground-dwelling or terrestrial fern, native to southeastern Asia. It spreads slowly by rhizomes (below ground stems) and stolons (above ground lateral stems). The leaf stems or petioles are covered with sparse to moderately numerous, one-color, reddish to light brown hair-like scales. The fronds are evergreen, long, once-pinnate, or feather like, and end in two or three forked division like the tail of a fish. This gives the fern a frilly look. The fronds are often arching or...

(Swamp Tupelo, Water Tupelo)

Large oval leaves, purplish fruits that are food for wood ducks and a flaring, buttressed trunk are interesting features of the swamp tupelo. A pyramid-shaped tree when young, this tall but narrow deciduous tree becomes rather irregular in habit with great age. It's native to the wet lowland soils across the southeastern United States, especially in the coastal plain and lower Mississippi River valley. The sandy gray bark is ridged and corky.

The large leaves are tapering ovals and are a satin-glossy...

(Cinnamon Fern)

This imposing, clump forming, deciduous fern is native to North America, the West Indies, and eastern Asia. Its silver-haired fiddleheads emerge from thick rhizomes in mid-spring, unfurling to large triangular pinnate fronds. Hummingbirds visit the hairy stems to collect down for their nests. Leafless fertile fronds resembling fuzzy cinnamon sticks arise in late spring, collapsing in summer after shedding their spores.

Cinnamon fern thrives in damp humus-rich acidic soil in partial shade. Plant...
