A bug’s eye view! 🦋🐝🦗

Get up close and personal with a very important sector of the Wildflower Center’s ecosystem - insects! Insects and native plants have a symbiotic bond: bugs find food and shelter among the greenery, while plants rely on them for pollination, ensuring both flourish together. How many of these insects can you identify? 🔎 Sound off in the comments!

Discover nature's laboratory this World Environment Day by taking a stroll down our research trails! 

Cross the side driveway (where roadrunners are known to roam!) and embark on the John Barr Trail or explore the Simmons Research Trail loop, where our center's conservation research comes to life. From fire's impact to drought-resistant native flora in bloom, these trails are an exploration of environmental resilience. You'll also find several plots representing research on ecological design such as green roofs! 🌱

The Wildflower Center, as part of @texasscience, supports conservation research leveraging native plants and innovative design to combat environmental challenges like water scarcity, climate change, and ecosystem degradation. Learn more about our work at the link in our bio.

What’s in Season: Gregg’s mistflower (Conoclinium greggii)! 🦋

The beautiful purple-blue blossoms on this native plant aren’t just for show - they will also attract lots of butterflies as they make their journey through Texas in the fall! Gregg’s mistflower blooms March to November, providing nectar for a variety of pollinator inspect species during that period. Consider planting some in your garden this year!
