Plant Sale at Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center

Oh my! I almost missed this!

If you are not attending ACL, this is a great sale to get plants or seeds (Native American Seed usually has a set up there).

Fall Plant Sale & Gardening Festival
Members Preview, October 12
Public Sale, October 13 and 14

With good recent rains, fall is a great time to add trees and other native plants to your garden. Come to “For the Love of Trees,” the Wildflower Center’s Fall Plant Sale & Gardening Festival and talk with experts about hundreds of species for sale and native grass alternatives for your lawn. Among the beautiful plant options available will be Texas ebony, Mexican silktassel and Alamo vine. Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. enjoy guided walks in our Arboretum, the Butterfly Garden and other gardens. The Store features author signings, food sampling and more. The Little House has children’s story time at 1 p.m. both days, and kids can create eco-pots for the garden.

Friday’s Members Preview from 1 to 7 p.m. is for members and those who join or renew Center membership. Before Members Preview opens, get plant advice from Mr. Smarty Plants in the courtyard from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Visitors can also hear Ralph Yznaga talk about historic Texas trees in the Auditorium from 11 a.m. to noon. Yznaga will sign his book on this subject afterward in The Store from noon until 2 p.m. Bring your own wagon to the sale, if possible.
