Thoughts are gathered on Austin property. In the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center visitors celebrate the beauty of Mother Nature. Almost 300 pristine acres set the scene for memorable trips. Founded by Lady Bird Johnson and Helen Hayes in 1982 the botanical garden provides a peaceful spot for quiet reflection just minutes from downtown.
Following a mission to “inspire the conservation and application of native plants,” individual gardens showcase over 800 species of greenery and flowers native to the state of Texas. Central gardens are filled with impressive themed plots. Sit in wonderment on a bench in the shady arbor or wander along the wildlife pond. Inquiring minds living in Austin linger in the healing garden or nearby in the fiber and dye garden. The deer resistant garden shows residents how to guard their plants against the palates of resident wildlife. Around the corner romance blossoms in the moonlight garden. And, in the hummingbird garden plants that are adored by the delicate birds are highlighted.
