Botanica-The Wichita Gardens


category : Museums
Botanica-The Wichita Gardens Come and discover a place to revive your senses. At the end of Museum Boulevard, insulated from city bustle, you'll experience an unfamiliar calm. It is a complete sensory experience. What jars the senses fully awake is the array of color. Nearly 10 acres, an immodest crazy quilt of color. Great splotches of color that change from one week to the next.

The color marathon begins with spring's sunburst - a sassy profusion of maverick stars, even before you arrive at the gate. More than 100,000 spring bulbs bloom in the Gardens. Tulips of every color and type show their stuff, and daffodils cover the slopes in the mini-wilderness that marks Botanica's southern boundary.

Each season delivers a new green, growing, blooming beauty. Exotic water garden plants; Native flowering "weeks" in the wildflower garden; Winged blossoms flying freely in their own special Butterfly Garden or safely captive in their own Butterfly House; A whole season of rosy fragrance; A unique garden that visitors with limited sight or mobility can fully experience by touch and smell; And as the evenings begin to chill, 6,000 mums defy fall's first frost, the final chorus to a great annual extravaganza. The season ends with a holiday display as thousands of luminaries and holiday lights make the paths and structures of Botanica glow.
