The inspiration for the tile designs at San Pedro Creek Culture Park comes from the native wildflowers of San Antonio and Texas that attract and nourish butterflies, bees and other insects of this area.

The artist based the four designs on various flowers, the Esperanza, Texas Thistle, Prairie Celestial and Firewheel. These flowers were chosen for their importance to the native wildlife and also for their beauty and color. Each design originates from a painting, a portrait of each flower and a butterfly that visits it.
