Description: The Liz Christy Bowery Houston Garden was established in 1973; making it one of the first community gardens in the country. In 1985 L. Brandon Krall initiated a native plant habitat and collection in the large shaded area beneath the landmark dawn redwood tree. May is an excellent time to visit LCBH Garden to see the early blooming wildflowers: Virginia bluebells, Dutchman's breeches, trillium, may apples, pinkster azaleas, native ferns and many other delightful specimens from the range of northeastern United States.
