The city's humid, subtropical climate - which Helotes is popularly known for - produces long summers and short winters and delivers more than 30 inches of rainfall each year.

Here's a list of plants and flowers that will thrive around your San Antonio home for years to come.
Hill Country Penstemon - This bright and beautiful flower can grow up to two feet tall. It produces brilliant red petals that will catch the eye of neighbors and passersby. Since this plant is native to the San Antonio-New Braunfels region, you don't need to water it too often.

It has white-petaled flowers that bloom in the spring. This plant grows to about 1-3 feet high. It tolerates and responds well to shearing and is a desirable border plant. It is also deer resistant, so you can enjoy its beauty without worrying about deer rummaging around it for food. Furthermore, it is also on the Texas Organization of Endangered Species Watch list as a species without legal protection. This suggests that it has low population numbers or a restricted range in Texas and needs some attention to ensure that it does not become threatened or endangered.
Rosa woodsii - Also known as Woods' Rose is a broadleaf shrub that is rambunctious, drought-tolerant, pest, and disease-resistant. Also, it tolerates nearly any soil type and can grow practically anywhere, in the sun or shade. The Woods' Rose is another eye-catcher. Since it is native to South-Central Texas, it can survive in the long summer months. This plant also attracts bees gathering pollen since it produces nectar.

Common Lawn Care Tips
Don't Melt Ice With Salt During Winter - Pouring salt on your walkway during a snowy winter might seem like a good idea until spring hits and the brown spots materialize. Salt will melt ice, but it will also damage the lawn when the ice dissolves and leaches into the soil.
Cutting Your Lawn Too Short, Or Scalping, Will Damage The Root System - When you cut your lawn high, the roots will grow deeper and create room for them to take in more moisture and nutrients, causing the grass to grow thicker. Taller lawns will not only blossom better than shorter lawns, but they will also reduce the number of garden weeds in your yard.
Do Not Mow Wet Grass - The best time to mow is when the grass is dry because when the grass is wet, the blades bend, making a straight cut difficult. The freshly cut grass blade is more susceptible to disease-carrying organisms. However, there are times when you have to mow wet grass, especially when it rains a lot. It is better to mow wet grass than letting the grass grow too tall and then cutting it when dry.
