Working with Houston landscape architect Johnny Steele, Isamu Noguchi selected the plants and trees for the garden with care, favoring native species when possible. Today the Cullen Sculpture Garden features more than 80 trees, including Drummond Red Maples, Mimosas, Loblolly Pines, Drake Elms, Bald Cypresses, Southern Magnolias, Crape Myrtles, and Water Oaks. Other plantings include Giant Timber Bamboo, Feather Bamboo, Green Pittosporum, Evergreen Wisteria, and Asian Jasmine. Along the garden's outer walls are Live Oaks and Cedar Elms.
