Buchanan’s Native Plants
Covered by a shroud of greenery in the trendy Heights neighborhood, Buchanan’s Native Plants, Houston’s largest garden center, is a hidden oasis waiting to be discovered. Those with a not-so-green thumb need not worry; Buchanan’s has plant species separated by section, which makes it easy to navigate the vast garden.
Because of the booming butterfly population in Houston, Buchanan’s also offers information as to which species of butterfly is attracted to each type of plant. Buchanan’s certainly stays up-to-date with popular trends and offers a large selection of fairies and other mythical trinkets to add to your garden. Unlike other nurseries, there is a gift shop where everything from gardening books to home décor and jewelry is for sale. Inside the gift shop, bright purple walls may catch your eye near the back of the store where an entire room is devoted to orchids.
The perfect mix of Texas native plants and other unique foliage would give Lady Bird Johnson another reason to be proud to call Texas home. Buchanan’s truly serves as a refreshing refuge in the concrete jungle of Houston.
• Humans aren’t the only ones who can enjoy the greenery, Buchanan’s is dog friendly!
• Food trucks park in the parking lot on Saturdays during Buchanan’s busy seasons of spring and fall, so come hungry.
