Coming Soon


The TTU Plant Resource Database is an ever-growing project, and there are several new branches (zing!) in the works:

  • Turfgrass Guide - a guide to selecting turfgrass varieties that will perform in West Texas summers, winters, sun, shade, and everything in between
  • Pests & Pollinators - a guide to identifying, controlling, and supporting the non-plant inhabitants of our landscapes
  • Planting Design - tips and examples of plant combinations and design considerations to help guide your plant selection
