Chrissy Cortez-Mathis will present “Plants that Love to Grow Here-Texas Native & Adapted Plants.” Chrissy is a Dallas County Master Gardener. This program introduces great shrubs, ground covers and perennials to use in the landscape. All plants covered are drought tolerant and easy to care for. Chrissy’s passion for reducing grass in the landscape was born when she was in charge of mowing her family’s big corner lot lawn as a teenager. It would often take her two days; now it just takes 10 minutes to do her own. In 2004 she and her husband bought a house in Richardson. Each year they work to make the yard waterwise and wildlife friendly. Her home landscape was chosen for the city of Dallas/WaterWise Garden Tour in 2012 because they used no municipal water in their yard. Chrissy is an enthusiastic and very knowledgeable speaker.
