Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

LBJ Wildflower Center

The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is a signature piece of her environmental legacy. Originally opened on land in East Austin, the Center moved to its current site on a transition zone between the Edwards Plateau and Texas Blackland Prairies ecoregion. It was delightful to walk through the gardens and enjoy all the wild flowers.

I also enjoyed the architecture and statues.

My hope for what lies ahead in the field of landscape design … is not a revolution against the use of non-natives, but a resolution to educate ourselves about what has worked for Mother Nature through the ebb and flow of time and to put that knowledge to work in the planned landscapes that are everywhere a part of our lives.” – Lady Bird Johnson
