If you are serious about creating a stunning landscape, it is recommendable to choose plants native to the Kansas City region. Following are some of the most attractive trees, plants, and flowers that thrive in the Kansas City climate.
- Bluestar. Named for its five-pointed, pale blue flowers, this beautiful plant blooms in clusters that are surrounded by soft green leaves during the spring. Bluestars are best grown in a group so make for good border plants.
- Willowleaf sunflower. Bright yellow flowers bloom late in the season to keep your landscape colorful further into the year. This easy to grow plant thrives best in full sunlight when provided with medium-wet, well-drained soil.
- Sourgum. An elegant sourgum tree is the perfect choice for defining a residential landscape. The tree displays attractive dark green foliage during the spring and summer that transforms into orange to scarlet leaves over the fall. To entice birds and other wildlife into your garden, choose a female tree as it will produce fruit.
