The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will present a program on selecting Texas Superstar plants for the landscape from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on July 30.

The program will take place in Suite 208 of the AgriLife Extension office for Bexar County, located in the Conroy Square office complex, 3355 Cherry Ridge Drive, San Antonio.

“This program will provide attendees the opportunity to learn all about Texas Superstar plants and the advantages of choosing these plants for the landscape,” said David Rodriguez, AgriLife Extension agent for horticulture, Bexar County. “They will also receive tips on how to best grow these selections.”

Texas Superstar is a registered trademark of Texas A&M AgriLife Research. Plants are designated Texas Superstars due to their aesthetic properties and ability to thrive in most areas of the state, as well as their commercial availability to Texas residents.

Rodriguez said he and retired AgriLife Extension horticulturist Dr. Jerry Parsons will co-present this program as part of the agency’s popular Backyard Gardening series.

The cost for the program is $10. For more information and to register, contact Torres at 210-467-6575.
