Cynthia Beacom, Hunt County Master Gardener, recommends the "Texas Superstar" pentas, a flowering plant that provides continuous color and is a favorite of butterflies.  Texas Superstars are designated by Texas A&M Agrilife as plants that are especially well-suited to the Texas climate.  Cynthia also discusses the rose rosette disease, which has been very destructive of rose bushes in nearby Dallas, Denton and Collin counties, but so far has not been reported very many times in Hunt County.
