    Sorry I didn't respond earlier. This was shot just north of San Antonio in New Braunfels so these suggestions should work well for you. Bob Webster's Radio show always has more great suggestions in your area.

    Thanks for the info. Much appreciated! I live in San Antonio, 20 years now, a transplant from the Washington DC area. Even after 20 years I still need help choosing plants which will do well.

    Thank you so much Steve for writing the names of the plants I can't wait to go to the nursery and buy some!

    Salvia greggia ( shrub with red flowers)
    Mexican Fan Palm (Washintonia robusta )
    Desert Willow (Chilopsis linearis)
    Red Bud (Cercis canadensis – var: texensus )
    Vitex – Vitex agnus=castus) Chaste tree
    Texas Sage (Leucophyllum frutescnes}
    Prickly Pear – )Cactaceae opuntia)

    These are all Texas Natives and do well here during the droughts. But keep in mind that although we have droughts, the weather is humid, unlike dester areas.

    Good Luck

    Dear Steve. Thank you for a great video. We live in Dubai, which also is extremely hot and dry. The nurseries here mainly sell plans imported from India and Thailand, which is completely crasy for the dry cliima, and take a lot of watering. Do you mind to write down the names bot English and Latin ( spelling of latin ks hard for us) of the plants you suggests, as neither we or our gardener are familiar with them, and yet want them.
