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.
Home to native Texas aquatic plants (and animals), the Wetland Pond is one of the many water features you will experience at the Wildflower Center.
The Wetland Pond is home to native Texas aquatic plants and animals. Not all Texas native plants like to keep their feet dry. The Wetland Pond features native Texas aquatic plants that can only grow in water or soil that is permanently saturated with water.
Keep a close look out for red-eared slider turtles and the occasional ribbon snake that make the Wetland Pond their home.
