Abstract The South Texas Native Plant Restoration Project was a resounding success in that the primary goal of developing commercial sources of native seed has been substantially met. By the conclusion of the project on August 31, 2011, 20 native seed sources had been developed or aided in being commercialized because of this project. Ecotypic native seeds are today commercially available for use by the Texas Department of Transportation, and the methods to plant, establish, and manage these native species along roads in Texas have been tested, reported on, and are available for vegetation managers reference and implementation. We graciously thank the Texas Department of Transportation and its Commissioners, employees, and contractors for their tremendous collaborative nature and unyielding support that made such successes possible.
