Hubs and I sort of stumbled upon Powell Gardens in June of 2014.
It’s a beautiful place, just outside of Kansas City, Missouri.
I didn’t take as many pictures as I should have, but here are some….
This incredible variegated Giant Reed. Surprisingly, a lot of the plants in this garden came from a nursery that is local to me. I asked them about the reed, because I was interested in putting one in the yard. She told me it was a bad idea because they are very invasive and hard to keep in one spot. So I passed on the idea.
There are a lot of statues there. I love them.
The flowers are spectacular…
Did I mention the oh-so-cool statues?
This statue is glorious.
The following are what I believe are Coleus. They were in the greenhouse part of the building.
This concludes my little tour. I hope you enjoyed the short visit.
I hope to go back again and see even more flowers in bloom!
