Garden Tour: A Kansas City Yard for Entertaining
A rose-color limestone path meanders along beds of hostas, monkey grass and coneflowers. While each section of the garden has its own personality, a common color story ensures visual harmony: The hardscape is primarily reds (rose limestone, old bricks) and grays (limestone, gravel).
The garden contains a charming mix of plants, including old-fashioned flowers (gooseneck loosestrife, hostas, oakleaf hydrangeas, rhododendrons and azaleas) and tropical plants (banana trees and acacia). A neighbor donated a shovelful of woodland phlox, and daffodils and irises were rescued from abandoned properties.
