For example:

Gregg’s Blue Mistflower is native to Texas and perfect for novice gardeners because of its low water needs.  Mexican Bush Sage’s striking purple hue attracts pollinators and thrives in the hot Texas summer.  From Milkweed to Texas Blue Star–and countless others–you’ll find beautiful, pollinator-friendly additions to your home garden.
