GARDEN VIEWS

An inside glimpse of the gardens from our Instagram feed

"The environment is where we all meet." - Lady Bird Johnson

Whether the Wildflower Center has been a place for you to meet native Texas plants (hello, free database!), meet up with friends for a socially-distanced outdoor adventure, or meet yourself in a place of peace & beauty among wildflowers & wildlife, we hope we’ve made a difference in your world. With your support, we can grow our programs and offerings, maintain this vital and beautiful space, & keep our gates open to provide important connections with nature. If you can, please donate to the Wildflower Center today. Link in bio or wildflower.org/donate 💕🌿
Sweet dreams are made of bees 💤

European honeybees were introduced by humans to the U.S., but they have taken to native flora such as Ageratina havanensis — and honestly, who can blame them? If we were mere centimeters tall, we would definitely rest our little heads on a heaven-scented pillow of shrubby boneset too.
