Located along the east side of the Johnson County Extension Office, the Garden Gallery is the next featured Kansas garden that tests Prairie Star flowers.  With an impressive layout, the Garden Gallery is a very well-organized garden that has much more than annuals. Small trees, shrubs, perennials, and hardscaping are all featured. 
According to their website, the Garden Gallery's stated goals are to display a diverse palette of plants for the home landscape that demonstrates:
  • the tried-and-true as well as the new
  • environmentally responsible practices
  • varieties suitable for local growing conditions
  • broader horizons to please the senses throughout the year
Below are some pictures we took during a recent visit, but you can also do a virtual tour through their website, and get detailed maps of all the plants in the garden. 

The garden is open year round, and volunteer Extension Master Gardeners work Thursday mornings between April - October and are available to answer questions.

For more information, you can also contact the Extension Help Line at (913)715-7050.
