The Wildflower Center Library was established in 1982 to assemble and disseminate information that will encourage the cultivation, conservation and preservation of wildflowers and other native flora throughout North America.

Its archives include thousands of images, books, periodicals and other plant-related resources. Materials were originally acquired by donation and purchase primarily to serve the staff of the Wildflower Center and support its programs. There has been a continuous expansion of the core collection.

The Library is a non-lending research library, open by appointment only. Call to schedule a visit.

The Library is also available as a rentable venue. With its vaulted ceilings, natural light and plentiful windows (one of which was custom cut to complement the shape of a nearby tree), the Library is a warm and intimate space — perfect for holding meetings, retreats, dinners, luncheons and small parties.


Capacity: 70 people
