Welcome to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden and the Botanical Research Institute of Texas

Spring is in the air and there is a new season of wonder at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden and the Botanical Research Institute of Texas. As the Garden wakes from its sleepy winter slumber, there is new life and beauty to discover. Just strolling through the Garden is a treat as pear, cherry, peach, and crab apple trees bloom throughout. In the Japanese Garden, multitudes of cherry, peach, and crabapple trees are starting to bloom. Roses in our historic Rose Garden have begun blooming, filling each turn with a new and spectacular surprise of color.

FWBG Joins with BRIT

The Botanic Research Institute of Texas is proud to announce that it will be taking over management and operations responsibilities for the Fort Worth Botanic Garden.

Dougherty bends, weaves, and twines twigs and saplings into massive shelters, towers and sculptures, each as unique as the site where it is built. Come visit the stunning exhibit today!
