LBJ center’s fall plant sale proceeds, with changes

Monday, September 14, 2020 by Tai Moses

Gardeners wait impatiently for this event all year long and finally it’s almost here – Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center’s Fall Native Plant Sale. The annual open-air plant sale features “a variety of spectacular Texas natives, including succulents, grasses, perennials, wetland plants, shrubs and trees. Not only are they beautiful, but native plants help conserve water, reduce mowing costs, provide habitat for birds, butterflies and other wildlife, protect the soil, and save money on fertilizer and pesticides.” The center acknowledges that, due to Covid, “things will look a little different this season.” In an effort to diminish the hordes of green-thumbed shoppers, the sale will be spread out over nine weekends. The members-only weekends (Sept. 25-27 and Oct. 2-4) are already sold out. Weekends from Oct. 9 to Nov. 22 are open to the public, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., “with very limited capacity and timed entry.” Reserve your spot here and read the center’s tips for preparing for a successful sale experience here.
