Local Participants

Continuing a longtime tradition at Wildflower Center Gardening Festivals, two local chapters of the Native Plant Society of Texas, the Austin and Williamson County chapters, will be offering a selection of native plants for sale as a fundraiser for their organization. Run entirely by volunteers who are happy to answer questions from visitors, the NPSoT is a non-profit organization that promotes research, conservation, and utilization of native plants and plant habitats of Texas.

Seed Sales

Plant a pocket prairie, install a water efficient native lawn or a perennial wildflower bed this spring from native seed. Friendly folks from local company Native American Seed will again offer hundreds of species of native grasses and wildflowers at the Spring Plant Sale and Gardening Festival. Support the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and save on shipping by picking up your native seed next weekend!
