With seemingly endless rolling, grassy plains it’s easy to forget the plethora of native flora that gives Kansas its unique beauty. From the bell-like purple petals of the Fremont’s clematis to the exotic twists on the yellow lady’s slipper, Kansas boasts a variety of wildflowers, shrubs, and grasses that paint our home landscape. If you’re moving to Wichita during this flowering season, keep an eye out for some of these often over-looked beauties.
Whether you’re passionate about conservation or you simply adore the natural wildflower look, planting native flora in your gardens will help the general health of our unique Kansas ecosystem. It helps protect against invasive species while simultaneously supporting the animals and insects that depend on these plants.
There’s a huge variety of wildflowers, trees, and grasses that all make their natural home here and can suit your decorative tastes. Visit the Kansas Native Plant Society’s website to find information on wild plants in the Wichita area, as well as locations of nurseries if you’re interested in building your own wildflower garden.
If you want to get a taste of plants from around the world, visit Wichita’s Botanica. The Botanica Gardens offers a multitude of carefully manicured and beautifully kept gardens ranging from woodland glades to rose gardens, aquatic collections to even a Chinese friendship garden opening this June!
