I want my whole side yard filled with these

These sun-loving flowers are planted at the Fontenay Abbey (big tree from previous post.) I wonder if we have them in Texas and if they're remotely drought-resistant?

Pretty flowers but I don't think they would work in Texas. If I'm not mistaken those flowers are geraniums, not to be confused with pelargoniums (what we call geraniums) These are very common in temperate gardens at this time of the year.

L. Rose is correct. These are hardy geraniums (not pelargoniums). In Central TX they tend to be unhappy unless grown in partial shade and given regular water.
