Texas greensand is actual sand from marine deposits and chock full of
lovely micronutrients. Great source of available iron too to combat

Its texture is like coarse builder's sand.  Dark green in color.  Roses and 
most shrubs adore it.
I've also discovered that a fine layer of it sprinkled over the soil
when seed starting seems to prevent the dreaded damping off disease.
It's wonderful stuff - always keep an extra 50 # sack around just
because it is so useful! Lovely stuff.
My good friend the daffodil judge (now, sadly departed from us) used to say

was the winner of many ADS awards.
