Special to the PRESS
Thank you very much to The Press and Keep South Padre Island Beautiful Committee for bringing back the Plant of the Month series of articles to a new audience (as well as a refresher to the old). It is most welcome to me as a recent newcomer to Port Isabel. And timely as we in the area (and around the country and world) are moving away from buying and growing introduced plants in our yards to growing natural, native plants and grasses which are so much better adapted needing almost no water or care, mowing ,or use of weed eaters and noisy blowers and thus non polluting to our waters that surround us and attracting birds, bees and butterflies as an added bonus…2016 is off to a great start!
