Hardy Plants

Since 1994, an East Texas horticultural field day – sponsored by Texas AgriLife Research – has focuses on hardy bedding plants, with trials to weed out plants that can’t take the heat.

Petunias were blooming during the 2011 East Texas Horticultural Field Day in Overton.
This row of petunias was just a small sample of the more than 400 bedding plant varieties tested at the 2011 East Texas Horticultural Field Day.
