Despite the "native" in their name Buchanan's sells a lot of.
Buchanan's does offer some native plants, which is more than most other nurseries in Houston. However, a word of caution: over 80% of their plants are non-native, and some are invasive species. So, if you are truely into creating a native wildscape/wildlife habitat, you should really do your homework before buying anything from them. Read up about the plants before you go shopping there, and DO NOT make any impulse purchases just because the plant seems native. For example, lantana camara (invasive) looks similar to Texas lantana (lantana horrida). Last time I went to Buchanan's they had both species on display.
As homey as the Heights itself, this modest operation specializes in native plants.. In Short Although modest in size, this Heights enterprise has nonetheless carved out a niche for itself among the town's gardening cognoscenti with its attention to Texas trees and shrubs. Like the its neighborhood, Buchanan's has a small-town feel, and it's not unusual to see customers visiting with each other among the rows of confederate jasmine and Mexican fan palms.
