Landscape design in Kansas City can be a challenge. From the climate to the soil, certain plants simply don’t do well here. Fortunately, there are a number of plants that thrive here and truly enhance your landscape:

  1. Blue Muffin Viburnum – This plant is a favorite for its beautiful flowers and berries, as well as its fragrance. This multi-seasonal plant will delight you all year long.
  2. Sweetbay Magnolia – This beautiful plant is easy to maintain and offers a vibrant shade of green.
  3. Walker’s Low Catmint – The bright purple flowers and bluish green leaves of Catmint can bloom well into the late summer months.
  4. Little Henry Sweetspire – This common plant grows to be about 5 feet tall and looks great in June and again in the fall when it’s leaves take on extra color.
  5. Drift Roses – A rose is a rose, but Drift Roses are something special. They are low-maintenance and offer year round color. They are also highly resistant to cold and diseases.
