Occasionally, we're lucky enough to find an extraordinary and bizarre specimen like the "Dinosaur Back Cactus" (Myrtillocactus geometrizans cristata). This gnarled series of nubbins is one of the more peculiar plants to have arrived recently. It showing its otherworldly oddness in our tropical house now. If you have a chance, come check it out!

We're excited to have just gotten in some of the white veined dutchman's pipe vine!(Aristolochia fimbriata) This extremely handsome plant grows like a groundcover, thriving in dappled light or morning shade and does an excellent job of reseeding itself and making a little patch. That's a good thing because you'll need it to feed all the swallowtail caterpillars that will be arriving in your garden. Yes, it's the larval host for two species of butterfly, the pipevine swallowtail and lesser known gold rim swallowtail...and not only are the butterflys gorgeous, so are the larvae, both of which have bold showy colors and patterns. The leaves are very attractive on this plant and the flowers are cute and funky. It is deciduous, so will freeze back in the winter but will return year after year. Over time it will develop a tuber underground that stores enough energy to quickly refoliate the plant should it get eaten by the aforementioned swallowtail larvae. This plant is a disease free and easy to grow!

Evergreen Clematis: This vine is so very special for so many reasons! Members of the Ranunculus family, Clematis are noted for their stunning profusions of color, which are often escorted into the garden by a rich, alluring fragrance. Many are noted for their ability to climb and cover (ugly chain-link, anyone?) vertical spaces and transform them to a preening, verdant wall. Well, the Evergreen Clematis is no exception to the aforementioned traits -- it smells wonderful and climbs up and over fences with fierce alacrity-- but it is exceptional in a couple of other ways. First, it is evergreen and hardy to 10 degrees F. Second, it grows well with very limited light as evidenced by the one we have taking over our juniper-poles (photo). The name "clematis" comes from the Greek word "klḗma," which means "branch with vines." It suggests that the "proper" pronunciation is "CLEM- uh-tiss" instead of "cle-MA-tiss." However you pronounce it, it will still be a fast-growing, showy, evergreen shade vine; who could ask for more? We have both the species (white) as well as the "Apple Blossom" which sports an abundance of magenta flowers. Come check them out!

With the road construction on Bee Caves Rd finally reaching our front door, Tx DOT has become our new signpost. Its nigh impossible to miss this beast! Don't worry, our driveway is as accessible as ever, and there should only be occasional lane closures on the road itself.

Want the colorful and finely cut foliage that a Japanese maple brings without the hassle? A black lace elderberry could be the answer! These stunners have finely cut purple foliage and put on masses of pink blooms in the early summer that contrast nicely with the dark foliage. A very showy addition to a garden and an edible berry to boot. The blossoms are followed by a black fruit that can be used to make jams and wines or consumed raw. If you don't eat 'em, the birds sure will!
