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.

The Meadows

The Meadows are planted with Central Texas wildflowers and are filled with rainbows of colors in the fall and springtime.

The Meadows

As you proceed down the entrance walk, take a minute to appreciate The Meadows. On your left will be the South Meadow; to your right will be the North Meadow.

In the South Meadow, we have planted several different species of wildflowers to provide color and interest throughout the growing season. In the late summer, it becomes a haven for many different species of pollinators including Queen butterflies.

The North Meadow is framed by an aqueduct, which carries water from the auditorium roof to the front cistern. The aqueduct is covered with Virginia creeper.
