|Gardens (Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center)|
The "Wildflower Center’s 284 acres are a mix of cultivated gardens, an arboretum, managed natural areas and wildlands. The sustainable gardens display many of the 650 species of native plants growing throughout the Center."
Lady Bird Johnson, a former First Lady and pioneering environmentalist, believed in the beauty and power of healthy landscapes to transform lives.
“Even in the poorest neighborhoods you can find a geranium in a coffee can, a window box set against the scaling side of a tenement, a border of roses struggling to live in a tiny patch of open ground. Where flowers bloom, so does hope." — Lady Bird Johnson.
