BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. — Colonial Gardens in Blue Springs is known for its community garden, fun events and butterflies.

But it's also a place for visitors to expand their own garden, gain more knowledge about plants and agriculture and even pick their own fruit.

The garden center grows some of its plants on-site and some on its farms, located coast to coast. Both for the wholesale market and the retail market, Colonial Gardens offers expert advice and the right plants.

Those who take a tour of the facility will find no shortage of plants, with even more available in the retail store to enhance their current garden or help build a new one.

Colonial Gardens also has a plant pharmacy, filled with different items to help keep plants healthy.

The newest addition to Colonial Gardens is a butterfly garden. Inside there is a mix of native plants and other plants that butterflies like. The whole life cycle of the butterfly happens inside the garden.

Visitors are allowed inside the butterfly garden in order to experience the fluttering beauties up close.

The garden center also has options for food, classes for children and adults, and events with live music.
