Wild About Plants! 

Denise Delaney

Tuesday, January 2, 2023 10:00 am

at Zilker Botanical Garden, Auditorium

Grow Green is a City of Austin water quality education program that encourages people to make landscaping choices that benefit the environment, emphasizing using "the right plant in the right place" philosophy. Central Texas climate has many extremes, so the plants have to be Texas tough! Understanding what makes them capable of surviving the regional environment, and the importance of site-specific conditions, is essential to making informed plant selection decisions. We will also talk about invasive plants, Waterwise rebates, cisterns, and rain gardens.


Denise Delaney is the Watershed Protection Department's Acting Education Program Manager. Her professional horticultural roots are 40 years deep in Central Texas. She has coordinated the Grow Green program since 2004. Before that, she was the first Director of Horticulture at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. She worked closely with Mrs. Johnson during the construction and installation of the original gardens and growing operation. Other experience includes working for landscape design, installation, and maintenance companies on private estates, retail nurseries, and at the University of Texas - Austin.
