It is hard to imagine a xeriscape without Texas rangers. These tough desert-adapted shrubs provide the backbone for many desert gardens. Mostly evergreen, clean, and hard to kill, they are indispensable to anyone designing a colorful, low-maintenance landscape.
Plant Texas rangers in full sun and reflected heat locations. The hotter it gets, the better they like it! These adaptable beauties are also very cold tolerant, down to 10º F.
If you plant them in full sun, and allow ample room for growth, very little pruning should be required. If you must prune them, do so in the spring, since the summer heat will produce a flush of new growth.

If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
