PLANT OF THE MONTH: TEXAS CREEPING OXEYE
Posted on Jul 9, 2013

The native Texas perennial Texas Creeping Oxeye is a great addition for most Texas landscapes. Its compact shrub growth and yellow flowers are a great welcoming border plant. The leaves are shiny, dark green, and have a rough texture. The golden yellow daisy-like blooms are nickel sized and begin blooming in summer and continue through fall. It prefers full sun for maximum bloom production but adapts well to some partial shade.
 
Prune it back a third in July to shape it up and encourage new growth. In most areas it will die back in the winter but has been known to remain evergreen. No matter whether you have rocky or rich organic soil,
simply make sure the soil is well drained and this plant will not disappoint!
