You may have noticed that there haven’t been many blog entries in the last couple of weeks. Despite the heat in Fort Worth, there has also been some rain. So, we’ve been enjoying the native Texas flowers and plants that are in bloom right now. There is no lack of summertime flowers, most of which will bloom until first frost, but the star attraction, no pun intended, at the Texas Star Gardens is the late blooming Texas Star Hibiscus. Along with the Datura, or Moon Flower, the Texas Star Hibiscus is a bloom that doesn’t last long once it opens, but as you can see from the picture, is worth the wait!
Guests at The Texas White House can still get seedlings from the garden as long as they last, which should be well into fall. All you have to do while you are staying with us is to mention you would like to take one home, and we’ll make sure you get the one of your choice, FREE!
