Georgia WildflowersThe Georgia Department of Transportation and the Garden Club of Georgia have teamed up to provide Georgia travelers with a beautiful display of wildflowers along Georgia Highways.

Highway beautification is the legacy of Lady Bird Johnson, First Lady and wife of President Lyndon Baines Johnson. Mrs., Johnson loved the wildflowers of Texas, and dedicated her efforts to adding beauty to America's roadsides with landscaping and the removal of excess numbers of billboards.

The Highway Beautification Act was passed in 1965, and sojourners have since benefited from the results of the legislation. Today, our Interstate Highway System is the most beautiful network of roads in the world.

And our Georgia roadsides have embraced the wildflower philosophy. Not only are the flowers stunningly beautiful, but they also require less mowing and maintenance. So the gorgeous colors are "green" too!

It's always been said that getting there is half of the fun. Never has that been more true than now, thanks to all the people that made highway beautification a realty!
