In landlocked Kansas, Botanica maintains a magnificent range of plants in the Jayne Milburn Aquatic Collection. The redwood boardwalk over Boeing Pond feels like you are walking through a wetland in spring and summer. The diverse selection of plants on display include Water Lilies, Lotuses, Water Irises, Water Hyacinths, Water Lettuce, Cattails and many others.
Nearly 50 varieties of aquatic perennials, in more than 100 containers, fill this habitat. Surrounding Boeing Pond, the American Elm on the north bank and the Weeping Willow on the south bank make impactful reflections on the water. Numerous varieties of ornamental grasses create a natural screen and provide beautiful plumes during the fall and winter months.
