The Garden Doesn’t Slow Down in Summer

One of the most amazing things about the natural world is its ability to maneuver through change, and we are lucky to experience that up close at the Garden year-round. When a new season arrives, shifts begin to take place that are at first microscopic; what starts in the soil can eventually be seen through plant foliage and all of the living creatures that contribute to the ecosystem.

It’s no secret that summer in our Gulf Coast region is hot and humid. But even during the heat waves, there is still so much to learn, discover, and appreciate in our well-planned corner of Houston. We hope you’ll join us to admire the shade of palm trees, the birds dipping in for a refreshing bath, and the beauty of a blooming Luffa aegyptiaca.

Even during the hot Texas summers, life grows here.


Read the July 2023 e-newsletter for more, including the director of horticulture’s definition of the fifth season in Houston and details on the Garden’s partnership with Equal Parts Brewing for its periodic Sip, Sup & Stroll events.
