The mission of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is to conserve, restore and create healthy landscapes.
Texas gayfeather (Liatris punctata var. mucronata) seedheads bring beautiful texture to the gardens! It seems like only yesterday they were a vibrant violet, but they’re wonderful in white too. #seasonschange #seedheads #nativeplants #wintergardens https://t.co/3Tvh2KsveS
The surprise arrival of snow in Austin last week left UT's @WildflowerCtr looking more magical than ever ❄️ utex.as/2z3Idkh https://t.co/uixROdca02

Silverleaf nightshade (Solanum elaeagnifolium) may look like mini green tomatoes, but they are poisonous to humans. So leave them off your salad — just come admire them along the Arboretum trail. https://t.co/DBMS5ZT4Cq
