Flora Kansas Native Plant Sale and Festival • Harvey County

Friday, Apr 26th, 2019 to Monday, Apr 29th, 2019 @ 8am-5pm
Dyck Arboretum of the Plains • 177 W Hickory • Hesston, KS • Map

Member Pre-Sale: April 25, 8am-5pm
Our customers find plants at affordable prices and enjoy supporting the mission of the Dyck Arboretum. Our repeat customers tell us how pleased they are by the quality of our plants – and how well these plants are adapted to Kansas’ challenging climate. Those who live with hard Kansas clay, wet in the spring and dry in the summer, tell us these plants not only survive – they thrive!

Hundreds of varieties of plants are available, many locally grown. Knowledgeable staff and volunteers are on hand to answer questions and give suggestions.

Staff and volunteers will encourage you to select plants that will develop into a ‘permanent’ garden, one that will come back year after year and will thrive without constant watering or frequent applications of pesticides and fertilizer. This kind of prairie garden is resilient to wind and drought and will reward you with four seasons of continuous beauty. Butterflies, songbirds, hummingbirds and many beneficial pollinators will share in this innovative and ecologically balanced oasis.
