Central Gardens

Our unique native plant gardens are designed to inspire, to educate and to demonstrate the sustainable use and conservation of native wildflowers, plants and landscapes. The newest garden, the 4.5-acre Luci and Ian Family Garden, combines whimsical features by one of the nation’s leading landscape architects with dramatic native plantings.

Entrance Garden

A Texas Mountain Laurel greets you in the Rockefeller Entrance Garden as you start your tour of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.

Entrance Garden

You are standing at the entrance of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center where lovely plantings, arching aqueducts and wide oak trees welcome butterflies and birds as well as human admirers. The entire Wildflower Center is a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat.

Take note of the founder's stone and the entry cistern. The entry cistern evokes the old days when thrifty and thirsty Texans collected every drop of rainwater. This cistern holds 12,000 gallons and is just one component of the Wildflower Center's rainwater harvesting operation.
