The Native Plant Society of Texas created the Operation NICE! program to help nurseries offer natives that are right for the local environment.
Operation NICE!™ committees run by our local chapters create a list of Plant of the Month (POM) plants (in some areas a Plant of the Season) in cooperation with wholesalers in order to assure availability, and in cooperation with participating local nurseries. The Native Plant Society of Texas then helps promote the Plant of the Month through our website and newspaper articles, signs at the point of sale and other means. Usually an information sheet on the plant is available at the nursery along with care and planting instructions.
