About Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center Austin

Visit the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center Austin and see what the country is talking about. The Center is more than just a botanical garden of native plants, it is an expression of our founder’s love of the land and its natural beauty.

Stroll among the display gardens where hummingbirds and butterflies abound; see our rainwater harvesting system; meditate on the beauty of a Hill Country Stream; visit the Wild Ideas: the Store, our world-class gift shop, and dine at the Wildflower Café. Regular hours for the Wildflower Center are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm daily. From mid march until the end of may we are open daily. Admission is $12.00 for adults and $10.00 for seniors and students and $6.00 for children between the ages of 5 and 12, and children under 4 and members are free.

Don’t forget your walking shoes so you can take a short hike on one of our four trails, and be sure to bring your camera to photograph the award-winning architecture and beautiful blooming displays. Weekend activities include workshops and lectures on everything from gardening with natural plants to nature photography.Festivals are the weekend fare for spring and fall, and even into winter. The Fall Festival in October is followed by December pre-holiday events. And in spring we celebrate Wildflower Days from March through May. Call for specific weekend dates, or visit our website for more information.
