A new garden has been added since we were here last. Glad to see George Washington Carver has been honored with a place here! A national monument at his homestead is here in SW Missouri not far from us.
On to the Kemper Center for Home Gardening, where we learn about ideas for our home gardens, and get all our garden questions answered!
The hosta garden at Kemper
I love the sculptures!
Some of everything is grown here, trials, experiments, new plants
Yummy looking lettuces! Beautiful!
River Birches. Love the peeling bark!
A great way to plant a container! The chard and other veggie greens are so beautiful with the flowers.
The Chinese garden is next, small but lovely.
The walk is embedded with mosaics of all sorts of flowers and bird pebble art.
Pomegranate flower and fruit
The Chinese have reverence for rock
Interesting upright dwarf banana. Musella lasiocarpa
Leaving the Chinese Garden, sculpture of sheep
Rainbow Knockout Roses
The Herb Garden
The dry creek
The DinoQuest exhibit was going on in the Climatron, unfortunately we were out of time and the Garden was nearing closing time so we had to miss this and the temperate house. Next time!
The rock garden outside the Temperate House
Tiny Dutch elm in the rock garden. It wasn't over 4' tall!
Ulmas x Hollandica "Jacqueline Hillier"
Chihouly glass sculpture. The light was behind it so I couldn't capture its brilliant blue. Amazing piece of work!
