Legendary pitcher and National Baseball Hall of Fame inductee Member of the Board of Directors, Nolan Ryan Foundation Principal owner, Round Rock Express Minor League Baseball team FAVORITE NATIVE PLANT:

Lantana (Lantana spp.)

“A favorite plant of mine is the lantana. Its flower clusters come in bright single colors or with blooms of varying colors, giving us a nice variety to choose from. I like that it attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. It’s a hardy plant, which makes it ideal for our Texas climate. With the wet winter we experienced in 2018-19, the lantana will be in full bloom in South Texas — bringing a vibrant addition to our landscape.”
