Entrance Garden

As visitors enter the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, they encounter arching aqueducts, established oak trees, fluttering pollinators and birds of many different feathers. The Wildflower Center is a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat.


What You’ll See In This Garden

  • The entry cistern, which holds 12,000 gallons and is just one component of of the Center’s rainwater harvesting operation
  • The founder’s stone, a dedication of the Wildflower Center to Lady Bird Johnson (March 31, 1995)
  • A metal rendering of this quote from Mrs. Johnson:
    “My special cause, the one that alerts my interest and quickens the pace of my life, is to preserve the wildflowers and native plants that define the regions of our land — to encourage and promote their use in appropriate areas, and thus help pass on to generations in waiting the quiet joys and satisfactions I have known since my childhood.”
