The Lady Bird Johnson Tribute Wildflower Planting was created in honor of the former First Lady, who was an ardent supporter of the use of wildflowers and native plants for public beautification projects. Mrs. Johnson’s efforts to promote sustainable, natural beauty along American highways has led to her being called one of the nation’s first environmentalists. The wildflower planting has become a local tradition, and every spring Houstonians admire the work of the volunteers in the form of fields and beds full of colorful flowers.
