Who is from Central Texas?


In trying to identify members of this forum that are from Central Texas, let's say Waco down to San Antonio. Few people have posted where they are from in their profiles so this is hard to determine. This includes Zones 8 and 9a. If you are in this category, please post your location in your profile so it will appear on the members listing. Since Central Texas is a somewhat unique gardening environment, this would help in asking and answering questions or replying to posts for this region. Thanks.

As a followup to my previous message trying to find other Forum members from Central Texas, does anyone in this region have Yucca pallida (paleleaf yucca), that you could trade? It is native north of Austin in Central Texas but I prefer to get an already cultivated plant division if possible.

I do have access to several acres that my husband owns and is not cleared with all native plants on it. There are a couple different Yucca type plants out there. Let me know if are interested.

Thanks Kancheta but I did find the Yucca pallida at a local nursery this spring - finally! I prefer to buy nursery grown natives rather than collect them in the wild. This yucca in particular is becoming threatened by habitat destruction, plus doesn't transplant well. Appreciate your offer to help.

Glad you found your plant. I didn't realize they were threatened. They are all over the place around here and Fort Hood.

Well, to some. I think of it as the beginning of north texas high plains. I guess it is all a mater of perspective. I am looking up and you are looking down, I was in Cisco not far from you and it looked a bit like central Texas...It's all Texas and it still in The KUT listenership so it must be Central Texas. Welcome...it's hot so it must be Texas.

Ha! anyone have anything left growing? It sure is parched 'round these parts. Marasri, I finally had to start watering one of the succulents you gave me some time back. Dry! It's downright crispy out there.

Yikes Phoenix, wher'd you poke your head in from. Are you rising from the ashes of your back yard? I just gave up watering. Nothing but cactus is growing here. Did you get any of that rain yesterday we got 5/16th of an inch. That means 700 gallons in the water tanks.

Sitting under a sleeping baby gives me a few minutes to check in. Back and front yard is ashes for sure! We got wind and some dark clouds with brought a slight respite in temperature. We ran out and did our raindance but to no avail. We moved up near Anderson Mill since I last saw you. Can't wait for rainy season...

Oops, not a new one. The old baby you already met. She'll be 2 in October.

Miss you, lady. Hope to run into you sometime. I keep hoping another swap will happen in the fall but that's asking a lot during this drought.

It has been two years since I saw you and your little girl was playing on the playground so this must be a new one. I think you were pregnant the last I saw you. I will try to make it to the plant swap but I have killed my plants this year.
