Houston Botanic Garden


The Houston Botanic Garden is a 132-acre urban oasis surrounded by a bayou in the nation’s fourth-largest city, with a mission to enrich life through discovery, education, and the conservation of plants and the natural environment. Planting began in the spring of 2019, and the Garden opened to the public in September 2020. It features over 1,100 different plant taxa curated among formally designed gardens and the lightly rolling, prairie-like landscape with grand oaks and pines from the site’s beginnings as a private golf club in the early 1920s. The diverse living collections include tropical, subtropical, and arid plants in the Global Collection Garden, Culinary Garden, Susan Garver Family Discovery Garden, and the Woodland Glade. Major collections include a variety of oaks, magnolias, palms, and cycads. The Garden’s budding conservation initiatives include North American oaks, subtropical Magnolias, and Louisiana irises.
