To celebrate the addition of Paper Kite butterflies to Powell Gardens’ Spring Butterfly Exhibit, we have invited the Kansas City Kite Club to the Gardens this Saturday, March 19, to fly some of their spectacular kites.

Kites like the one above will be soaring over the Gardens by noon (wind permitting, of course).
While guests are strolling through the Gardens to see the kites, they won’t be able to miss the magnificent magnolias that have delighted us with their early blooms this season. Horticulture Director Alan Branhagen has taken some of the most gorgeous photos of them this week. Here are a few for you to enjoy!
Magnolia stellata ‘Chrysanthemumiflora’
Magnolia stellata ‘Rosea’
Magnolia ‘Spring Royalty’
We invite you to join us this Saturday to see more fabulous blooms, butterflies and kites! We’ll see you in the Gardens!
