The extremely hot temperatures of this last summer are gone and so are some of the summer flowers of our native Texas plants. The heavy rains of a week or so ago and the cooler temperatures this week have brought out the first of our fall flowers. And as you can see from the picture, some are rather impressive. These fall flowers will continue to bloom up to the first frost; so, plan to come by our bed and breakfast to see the Texas Star Gardens in the fall. Although fall is not a good time to plant seedlings of most of the native Texas plants, if you’re interested in getting free seedlings, we’ll take your name and send you an email next spring when you can begin to come by for them.

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!
