Overview

The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin, Texas, is dedicated to inspiring the conservation of native plants. Located a quick but quiet ten miles from downtown, we are a botanical garden open to the public year-round and have become a favored venue for everything from conservation-focused conventions to beautiful weddings. We carry out our mission to inspire the conservation and application of native plants through our gardens, campus, research, education and outreach programs. In doing so, we improve water quality, provide habitat for wildlife and enhance human health and happiness. Visit, learn and make a better world with us. The Wildflower Center was founded by Lady Bird Johnson and Helen Hayes in 1982 and became a part of The University of Texas at Austin in 2006.

I love this place. It has expanded over the last 10 years to include an Arboretum with great tree swings, and a Family garden with a neat water feature among other things. There are lots of paths to explore and beautiful flowers to gaze upon....More

What an inspiring place. My guest asked that her ashes be scattered here someday. If nature and flowers are of interest to you this is must visit.

Our family went to center to see the spring flowers and bluebonnets. We had a pleasant visit; but, was surprised at the cost of entry.
