    Thanks for the question. Sorry, I can't really help you with plant combinations for Texas. Anyone with knowledge of Texas plants please feel free to chime in. Thanks

    jimluvweng, kasi I can help you. I am on the Gulf Coast but used to live in Dallas, Do you have a sunny, shady or part shade spot? There are so many natives you can use. Send me your email in a message and maybe a pic or 2 and I can help you, I love using natives in landscaping, because they are so easy to maintain

    The front two are sedums -The blue one is Sedum reflexum 'Blue Spruce' and the other is a Sedum spurium (I don't recall the variety, It may be 'Red Carpet'). The one flowering toward the back is a Dianthus (firewitch or frosty fire). These plants do best in well-drained soil with full sun. This project is in Minneapolis, MN which is zone 4 (usda hardiness)
