Plants for clay soil

Asked March 23, 2013, 6:38 PM EDT

What are some plants that can thrive in dense clay soil that can also take dry spells?

I live east of Austin, so get hot, hot summer, too.

Thanks,
Barbara

My best advice is for you to drive around your neighborhood and the surrounding east Austin area and see what is growing in your neighbor's yards.
Next, do you have a copy of the Native and Adapted Plant Guide? If not, here is a link to it. I can also mail you a copy, if you prefer.
