And this plant is native through Texas, through South Carolina or you can say it's native to an area from South Carolina through the south to Mexico. And it's a well adapted plant. it grows well in almost every soil. It grows in loam, caliche, clay and it can take sun, dabbled shade or even real shade. So that's a very well adapted plant. What is a native plant? A native plant is a plant that's well adapted to your area. To your climate. So you need to look what climate you have. How much rain you have.
