Wildflower Center Seed Bank

The Wildflower Center collects and stores seed from keystone species in the plant communities of Texas. These seeds are used by research scientists in propagation studies, reintroduction and environmental restoration efforts and safeguarded as a hedge against possible extinction in the wild. To request seed in the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center's seed bank, please contact the Director of Plant Conservation.
