Central Texas Hill Country is a very unique bioregion consisting of limestone and aquifers that bubble up to the surface and back into the ground. There isn’t much soil, or water. When there is water it comes in great waves, and then there can be long periods of nothing. Despite the extreme circumstances, there are many exciting and unique medicinal plants to learn about and explore. Some of the most common medicinals include Cactus, Agarita, and Juniper but did you know about these uncommon allies?
