Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

We are proud to be the official fine jeweler to the Lady Bird  Johnson Wildflower center. 12% of each purchase from our wildflower collection goes directly to the Wildflower Center to help carry out our shared mission to inspire the conservation of native plants through  the center’s gardens, research, education, consulting and outreach programs. In doing so, we help improve water quality, provide habitat for wildlife and enhance human health and happiness.

The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is the largest all-native garden in the state of Texas, with 284 acres of gardens and natural areas that feature more than 800 native plant species from the mountains of West Texas to the Coastal Prairies.

The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center holds the honorary designation from the Texas Legislature as the state botanic garden and arboretum, recognizing the critical role the Center plays in conserving the native plants and landscapes of Texas.

History

Lady Bird Johnson, former first lady of the United States, was ahead of her time in understanding the reparative and regenerative qualities of native plants and beautiful landscapes. “Beautification is far more than a matter of cosmetics,” she said in 1968.

We'd love for you to visit the center and see why we love it. The Wildflower Center is only 10 miles from downtown Austin but it feels worlds away. You can experience a slice of the Hill Country, beautiful native plant gardens, family play gardens, and miles of walking trails just a short drive away.
