Plant Sales


Fall is the ideal time to plant in Texas! The Wildflower Center's Fall Native Plant Sale will feature more than 300 species of unique Texas natives adapted to thrive in our crazy climate. Natives look beautiful in gardens and provide important habitat for pollinators and other wildlife. This is your one-stop-shop for wildflower seeds, grasses, wetland plants for your pond, perennials, trees and shrubs, including trees from the UT Tree Nursery.

Admission: $10 adults, $8 seniors and students, $4 children 5 through 17, and members, UT Austin personnel (with ID) are free for Public Days, and children under 5 are free.
