Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

The Wildflower Center is a botanical garden in Austin, Texas, dedicated to native plants. Our vision for the future is to preserve and restore the natural beauty and biological richness of North America by inspiring people to love the land. We want people to think differently about the plants around them. We want people to understand the role of native plants in a healthy ecosystem, to value the beauty and health of the natural landscape that defines their heritage, and to take action to protect, conserve, and restore the natural landscapes of North America.
