If your friends and family have labeled you "The Plant Murderer" in the family, there are some easy ways to remedy that. The first thing is to pick a plant that you might not love.

That's the trade-off when talking about keeping plants outside your home alive in Texas. You will have to pick something known to thrive in your environment without much interaction from you.

If you pick some native plants, you will have a much better time keeping a low-maintenance garden alive. Occasionally you will have to do some early morning watering to keep some of them healthy, but that is only in the most severe drought.

Not Applicable To West Texas 

Not every part of Texas can get the most out of this information. The list is perfect for just about everyone in Texas, except West Texas.
