Did you know that there are over 20 demonstration and research gardens throughout the state of Kansas that showcase Prairie Star flowers? We plan on featuring them over the next few months with pictures and locations. If you are in the area, check them out! 
With a prominent place right in front of the Agricultural Hall of Fame in Bonner Springs, KS, the Demonstration & Research garden in Wyandotte county is a great place to see some Prairie Star flowers. Under the guidance of Horticulture Extension Agent Lynn Loughary, the Wyandotte County Master Gardeners plant and maintain the space. There are both annual and perennial plants in the gardens. 

Nice design mixing annuals and perennials Here is a very healthy Lavender 'Provence' in the perennial section.  Soaker hoses are used as a water conservation measure.  The flowers get watered twice a week here.
The Master Gardeners also have an amazing demonstration vegetable garden behind the Ag. Hall of Fame. Just look at the impressive bounty they had laid out!
