Welcome to Kirkwood In BLOOM
Kirkwood in BLOOM is a citizen inspired and managed initiative to enhance the quality and preserve the heritage of public landscapes in Kirkwood, MO. This community initiative enjoys the support of community leadership as well as the Kirkwood business community and a variety of civic service organizations.
Kirkwood in BLOOM'S 2015 signature project is creation of The Pollinator Garden at Kirkwood's Historic Train Station. This public garden, located among the urban streetscape of Downtown Kirkwood, features both Missouri native plants and other ornamental perennials supporting the lives of butterflies and other critical pollinating insects. The centerpiece of the garden is a swamp chestnut oak (Quercus michauxii) planted during the autumn of 2014 as part of Kirkwood's 50 Trees community tree planting iniative. Upon completion on April 18th, The Pollinator Garden will be registered and signed as a Monarch Waystation.
