Water-wise tree suitable for grove
I have bought a house in Lockhart. Hot summers/cold frosty winter. Would have liked to replaced lawn with grove of silver birches and turf Lily, but looking for something more drought tolerant.

I would also encourage you to visit your local garden centers and see what your region has available. They often have test gardens to see the more mature trees.
