We had a great time on Memorial Day at Botanica. The Gardens were packed with guests, ready to see the Butterfly House, the irises, roses, peonies and more! The Wichita Community Concert Band played a great show, featuring American March music, and Hiland Dairy provided free ice cream! Thanks go to Downing & Lahey and to Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice, who sponsored the festive event for the community.

Art and nature go hand in hand. At Botanica, the outdoor sculpture and other artistic features nestle in to complement the plant material and enhance the aesthetics of the Gardens and the visitor experience. We have two new sculptures being added to our permanent art collection.
What a great time we had at our first Plant-A-Palooza preview party and rare plant auction on April 22. Despite rainy weather, our friends and garden enthusiasts had a blast in the Gardens- dining on our gourmet picnic fare, enjoying refreshing cocktails, shopping our plant sale and bidding/outbidding each other on a plethora of silent auction items. Thanks go to McCurdy Auction Services for an outstanding and humorous live auction, with some unique plants going to wonderful homes. This event was sponsored by Kaw Valley Greenhouses, The LDF Companies, McCurdy Auction, Justus Fugate, Law Offices of Henry & Mathewson, P.A. and Elton Parsons.
